Evil touched Quinlan once. Will it do so again?

The best thing that ever happened to Quinlan Clark was the day the law took her to an orphanage. Now, the time has come for Quinlan and the other young teachers to go out on their own as mail-order brides. But childhood nightmares still haunt Quinlan, keeping her terror of men firmly set.

After ten years of hunting the men who killed his brother, Will Adams has finally come home. His mother, determined to spoil grandbabies, finds him a mail-order bride he has no interest in. But from the moment Will lays eyes on his skittish bride, he’s smitten.

With secrets between them, the two try to start a life together, but one of their pasts isn’t through with them yet. Can Will kill to protect someone he loves? And is Quinlan’s new husband just like her bloodthirsty father?

Quinlan’s Quest is the seventeenth story in the multi-author series ‘The Alphabet Mail-Order Brides’.  For a complete listing of the authors and their titles in this multi-author series please visit our The Alphabet Mail-Order Bride page.

This holiday season, practical and rational Anna Bell will do anything to save her family’s mini-mart from going under in her small beach town known for its traditions. But with all of the debt and bill collectors her dad accumulated before his passing, she’s aware her mom may have to sell to the buyer who has just made an offer.

Impetuous and optimistic Peter Locke is known as the new billionaire in town who is buying up failing businesses, presumably to inject them with “new life” and turn them around for a quick profit. When Anna discovers Peter is the buyer who made an offer on the Main Street Mini-Mart, she’s determined to convince him that keeping with tradition is the way to go so he doesn’t make changes to all her dad built with such love and care.

Spending time with Peter gives Anna the first feelings of comfort and joy since her dad passed. And she has to admit the changes he makes to the Christmas lighting ceremony are positively delightful. In fact, his enthusiasm and warmth will soon have Anna falling head over heels for him. As their relationship blossoms, Anna worries he’ll learn her initial motivation for spending time with him was to help her family’s business.

Will Peter discover the truth about Anna and walk away from her? Or will the magic of Christmas give them both the best gift of all: love?

**  Watch for Ms. Hatler’s new series Do-Over Date which is a spin-off from the Kissed by the Bay series – the first title is Million Dollar Date, release date August 22, 2019. **

Marshall Dyson wants one thing and one thing only: to raze his grandfather’s island to the ground. Everything is ready to go––except for the freakin’ bunnies! Hundreds of the furry critters hopping about and multiplying before his eyes. And then there’s the American Bunny League, along with one distractingly beautiful veterinarian, taking him to court to save them…

Dr. Augusta “Gus” North can’t believe the grumpy–and annoyingly hot–builder she’s facing in court cares more about demo-ing some cabin than the lives of 200 bunnies. But when the judge orders Marshall to stay on the island and help her rehome the rabbits – the entire month – she knows they’re going to need to lay some ground rules.

Like, for example, absolutely no kissing. Might as well go ahead and get that in writing. Sure it’s on a napkin, but that still counts. 

How hard could it be to keep their hands off each other amidst all the fighting? Surprisingly, harder than wrangling 200 bunnies.

Wrong Side of the Tracks stories include — The Kissing Contract
