Rules of Engagement
Written by Claire O'Sullivan
Army Ranger Scott Walker believes his missions have been compromised. They have been sidelined when a threat of an unchecked virus comes across the military radar. When he is given orders to protect a scientist, it is an assignment he finds boring—until he realizes he’s babysitting the same woman he met on vacation.
Cheyenne Keyes is a low-level microbiologist with a newly minted predictive software program. Once she is under Scott’s protective detail, they begin to work together to determine how the outbreak could have become a global concern. When he shows signs of knowing far beyond what any soldier should, she suspects another biotech company of industrial espionage and determines to flee.
Cheyenne must overcome her mistrust of the Army Ranger who says he is trying to save her life in order to help him, to live, to stay alive herself, and hope for a future. As she lays dying, she wonders what might have been had she trusted Scott.
Scott must stop the family who is bent on deconstructing the country with a bioweapon and find a way back to Cheyenne before she dies.

You Are the Reason
Written by Mary A. Felkins
A reluctant heiress.
A driven contractor.
An abandoned house in want of a family.
CPA Everley Scott knows exactly what she wants. Status quo. But when her inheritance of Moreland, an 1846 manor house, is at risk of being razed, she agrees to fulfill her mother’s final wishes to restore the house to its former glory and hire her contractor of choice.
Historic restoration specialist, Gabe Bellevue, is in need of a big contract to buoy his reputation as New Orleans’ go-to guy. Stunned at his hefty price, Everley is cornered into involving a high-profile production company that offers funding in return for rights to film the project.
Production’s strict schedule pressures Gabe to rush the job, but his refusal could cost him the deal of a lifetime … and his last shot at satisfying unrequited love for Everley—his high school crush.
The discovery of an impassioned plea penned in the 1800’s by a former Moreland heiress might be the key to unlock Everley’s heart and enable her to embrace the historic treasure. Especially when it comes with a highly capable—and increasingly irresistible—contractor.
Will Moreland, once again, enjoy the sound of love and laughter within its walls?

What did the mysterious man bury?
Rod Campbell loved to go tubing with his friends down the lazy river outside of town. They often wondered about Snake Island as they drifted by.
Then, one day Mr. Patterson rushed out in front of the boys as they rode their bikes. People around town said he was a little crazy since he’d come back from the war. Some said his injuries had affected his brain. But Mr. Patterson warned them about the island.
Rod talked his friends into camping out on the island since it was near his grandfather’s farm. If they could last the whole night, then there wouldn’t be anything to be afraid of they reasoned.
On the night of the campout, someone came to the island, dug a hole, and rolled a large piece of carpet in. Then he began covering it up. The boys were terrified when they realized the man digging the hole was Mr. Patterson.
They raced off the island. The next day they learned that the richest man in town was missing. Police suspected murder.
Rod and his friends reported what they saw and Mr. Patterson was accused of the crime. But did he do it? And what did he bury in that hole?

My Question for Jesus
Written by Christy Hoss & Illustrated by Kiersten Fletcher
If you could ask Jesus only one question, what would it be?
One surprising day, a little girl gets the chance to meet Jesus. She has a very important question to ask Him. As she and her friends draw closer to Jesus’s side, will she get the opportunity to speak to Jesus, or will the disciples keep her from fulfilling her heart’s desire?
My Question for Jesus is based on Matthew 19 in the Bible when the disciples try to stop children from coming to Jesus. Christy hopes the story will inspire readers to think of Jesus in a more relatable way.
