Ride the Fire
by Jo Davis

After he lost his wife and children to tragedy, Capt. Sean Tanner drowned his pain with alcohol. Now, fresh from rehab, he wants to regain the trust of his team and begin again. The last thing he needs is to have feelings for beautiful firefighter Eve Marshall. But even as they dare to explore their growing desire, Sean learns that his family may have actually been murdered. And that a shadow from his past has returned to finish off Sean-and anyone he loves.


Gawain and Lady Green
by Anne Crompton

In the two voices of Gawain and Lady Green, this retelling of the Arthurian legend unfolds. Crompton's characters from Merlin's Harp (Donald I. Fine, 1995) take readers back to the time of Camelot, a place where honor and chivalry are as much a part of life as is breathing for Sir Gawain. Other beliefs, even those of one he has come to love, are betrayed. The book is unique in its presentation of Lady Green as a strong female character, and many teens will identify with the choice she made for love. Differences between the status of men and women in the time of King Arthur are cleverly integrated through the voices of the title characters.


The Trouble With Paradise
by Jill Shalvis

When a violent storm strands the passengers of a singles cruise on a deserted island, Dorie Anderson will have to choose where she feels safest-in the arms of a sexy pro baseball player or a mysterious French doctor.
