TWELVE DAYS -- Book 1

Twelve Days before Christmas, Rachel McRae opens her front door and a social worker puts a baby in her arms -- one who comes with a four-year-old boy and an eleven-year-old girl -- siblings abandoned and in need of a temporary home.

Rachel and her husband, Sam, have dreamed of a house filled with children -- a dream that has led them to repeated heartbreak. Sam McRae has finally decided the only thing left to do is leave his wife.

Reluctantly, Rachel and Sam take the children in, but just until after Christmas. They will do their best not to fall in love with them, not to get their hopes up that this time a miracle will happen. That these children will stay, and that their marriage can still be saved.
********************************************

EDGE OF HEAVEN -- Book 2

She looks at him and thinks, "Please don't let him be more than twenty-five."

He looks at her and thinks, "Please let her be at least twenty-five."

Neither one of them is.

And that's only one of their problems.

Rye is a man with an ugly past. He didn't come to Baxter, Ohio, looking for a woman, but there she was. Emma is pretty and sweet, and the kind of woman he'd always wanted, but never dreamed he could have. Her innocence and vulnerability tugs at Rye's weary heart, and the sizzling sexual pull between them can't be ignored.

But Emma has a dangerous ex-boyfriend, plus an outraged, overprotective father with a family connection that dooms Rye and Emma's relationship from the start. That and Rye's dangerous past make it seem impossible for them to have a future together.
********************************************

BED OF LIES -- Book 3

One very bad night, after more than a few drinks, the most perfect guy in the world falls apart and ends up in bed with Julie.

She understands. It happens. It doesn't mean anything, she says, but she's lying to herself. It blows up her life and his -- a specialty of Julie's.

Growing up, Zach McRae was her best friend's older brother, sweet, protective and perfect. He shows up out of the blue at her engagement dinner and instantly sees right through all the lies she's told herself. Like that she's fine, even happy and right where she wants to be.

Zach, also, is no longer the perfect guy of her childhood, although he's trying desperately not to let it show. His life is increasingly and uncharacteristically out of control.

It's time for he and Julie to face some hard truths from their past, plus puzzling ones from their present. Like that they can't stop thinking about each other, can't stop wanting each other, and can't stop ending up in bed together.
********************************************

BONUS NOVELLA -- the first book in Teresa's new serialized romance, Everything To Me, featuring Emma & Rye's daughter, Dana, who's falling for Peter, Zach's wife's younger brother.

Unexpected! I wonder how Mintkit reacts to this news... <br> <p> ~Dawn&star

Mintkit sat in silence, watching the river splash on the rocks surrounding it, thinking about home. Winterberry was probably worried sick, Tabbypelt was no doubtedly missing his conversations with his daughter, and her siblings most likely didn't realize she was gone. Home. WaterClan. She just wanted to be back home... <br> "T-Take me back to WaterClan. Now." She struggled to keep her voice strong and filled with authority, but it shook with fear and sadness. The stranger let out a purr of laughter. <br> "No way I'm taking you back to WaterClan. It's neighbored with ScorchClan!" Mintkit was suprised at how this rogue was so scared at a small Clan. <br> "Then what'm I suppose to do?" She sniffled, sitting back on her haunches in defeat. Her mint green eyes threatened to spill tears. "Stay here forever as a rogue?" The she-cat hesitated, lifting an eyebrow. <br> "/You/ can go back if you want. I ain't tellin' ya which way to go, or which side of the river your Clan is on. You're a kit, anyways. You wouldn't know." She felt like clawing the rogue's pelt in frustration. <br> "At least tell me your name, if I'm gonna live with you..." The blue she-cat laughed, a crackling wheeze that gave Mintkit the impression she didn't laugh a lot. Or she had nobody to laugh with or at. <br> "First of all, you ain't stayin' with me if ya smart enough /to/ stay. My name's Aqua." Her bronze and green-flecked eyes shined with a child-like mischief as she picked on the younger cat. "Yours?" <br> "I'm Mintkit," she meowed in response, staring into her eyes. There was something familiar out them, somehow... She just couldn't put a claw on it. <br> "Well, /Mintkit/, I see your gettin' a tad homesick. Will talkin' 'bout it help?" Her gaze softened into sympathy. Mintkit shrugged. <br> "I guess we can try." In truth, she had no idea if it would help. But it can't hurt to try. <br> "Have any family? Friends?" Aqua started, padding over to sit next to the kit. <br> "Yes... I have family. No friends. My mom, dad, brother and sister. I think we should skip taking about Ashkit and Featherkit, though," Mintkit quickly added. <br> "What were they like? Your parents? What where their names?" Suddenly, Mintkit never found a secret exit out of camp, almost drowned in a river, and had a stranger rescue her where the current took her. She wasn't sitting there in the middle of nowhere with a rogue named Aqua. She was home, in the nursery, with Featherkit & Ashkit play-fighting under Winterberry's unbroken watch. Tabbypelt's tail was curled around her as she explned her feelings. Flowerkit & Harewind were napping in the corner. <br> "Winterberry is my mother. She's kind and protective, the best mother anycat could have. My father is like my best friend. He listens & never judges," the words naturally flowed out of her mouth as she continued to imagine the nursery. <br> "And his name is..?" <br> "Tabbypelt. He used to be a rogue, though. His name was Tabby back then." <br> "Tabby?" Another eye-brow raise from Aqua. Then she broke out purring. More laughter. Mintkit struggled to keep her mouth shut to tell Aqua to get to the point. "Mintkit... Looks like we're sisters." <p> -&#1071|Reflections&#9830
