Delores Fossen Books Overview
FINDING HIS SON WAS A DREAM COME TRUE…
UNTIL UNFORESEEN DANGER TURNED IT INTO A NIGHTMARE…
All federal agent Luke Buchanan wanted was his son. That and revenge against everyone involved in the illegal adoption that had resulted in his baby boy being stolen from him. So when he finally tracked down the woman who’d been raising Christopher as her own, he was hell bent on making her pay. But Luke wasn’t the only one after Elaina McLemore. Someone was hunting her, following her every move. And from the moment he saw the fear in Elaina’s eyes, he vowed to protect her and the baby they both loved at all costs. But who would protect him from the tender feelings Elaina sparked inside him?
When Kelly Manning learned that her child might have been involved in a baby swap, she confronted the problem head on. Rich, powerful and dangerously attractive, Nick Lattimer was the only hope she had of finding out the truth. But he had the power to claim both the baby boy she’d raised and the biological son she’d never known.
Someone wanted them dead…
someone who’d stop at nothing to make sure the babies’ cries were silenced forever. There was only one way for Kelly to keep the boys safe.
She’d have to join forces with the last man she should trust and the only person who loved the children as much as she did.
This Christmas he’d have to play Santa in disguise. Federal agent Matt Christensen hadn’t planned on spending Christmas Eve dodging bullets. He hadn’t planned on fatherhood, either. But when he discovered he had a daughter, Matt vowed he’d do anything to find her including cozying up to a beautiful murder suspect with dangerous connections.
To get inside the isolated West Texas compound of a known criminal, Matt needed Cassandra Harrison’s contacts. But could he ignore the other needs Cass brought to mind? She was vulnerable and soft…
almost innocent. With an arsenal of gunmen intent on crushing his Christmas mission, he’d have to protect them both if they wanted to survive the cold, cold night and bring his baby home for the holidays.
Shot on a covert rescue mission, Logan McGrath came home to Texas to recuperate. He’d wanted peace, but instead found a terrified redhead on his doorstep. An alluring stranger who’d given birth to a beautiful baby boy…
his baby boy.
Mia Crandall claimed he wasn’t the donor she’d chosen.
But someone had arranged the illegal surrogacy, and now they wanted Mia out of the way. Only, Logan soon realized the killer who hunted her wasn’t nearly as frightening as the tender feelings she stirred inside him. And if Logan ever wanted to get a chance at fatherhood, he’d have to protect the mother of his child at all costs.
From the moment he first saw his son, ranchman Dylan Greer knew the baby he’d adopted was his in every way that mattered. And no one not even the beautiful, strong willed cop who claimed she was the child’s mother was going to change that. Collena Drake swore a criminal ring had stolen her baby and that someone was crossing every line to keep the illegal adoption secret. Now, in order to protect one innocent child, Collena made him a tempting offer: get married and share custody. As a businessman, Dylan thought the plan brilliant. But as a man…
resisting his ‘bride,’ especially as the danger mounted, would be damn near impossible.
Sheriff Carley Matheson had her hands full: A sixteen year old unsolved murder and a strong hunch that the killer had resurfaced and struck again. As if things couldn’t get any worse, the Texas Rangers had sent Sloan McKinney the one man she’d always tried to keep at a distance to spearhead the investigation. Now the only way to keep the citizens of Justice, Texas, safe and solve two connected crimes was to join forces. But someone resented Carley and Sloan digging up the past, and before long two of Texas’s finest found themselves caught in the crosshairs of a murderer.
Rugged Texas Ranger Cole McKinney, abandoned by his father, hated the thought of helping his half brothers. Also Rangers, they’d called him back to Justice, Texas, to help solve two murder cases cases with their father as the prime suspect. Solving these crimes could help mend the wounds of Cole’s past. Maybe even clear his so called father’s name Gorgeous, curvy and whip smart, Joey Hendricks came to Justice as the governor’s special investigator. Working the cases with Cole caused their emotions to burn so hot, a ifery night in bed might be their only release. But Joey’s own family secrets in Justice could blow her one chance for love and these murders sky high.
Texas P.I. Quinn ‘Lucky’ Bacelli had finally tracked down Marin Sheppard, a woman he was certain knew more about her missing criminal brother than she was letting on.

After coming to the rescue of the beautiful single mother and her baby boy, Lucky learned about her dangerous past and offered a pretend engagement. But as the connection between Marin’s child and a ruthless killer was revealed, the case became frighteningly more real than any he’d ever taken. And standing in as fianc and father had left Lucky with everything to lose .
Years ago, Sheriff Beck Tanner had believed the worst about Faith Matthews. Now she was back in their small Texas town, forcing him to question everything he thought he knew about her. And when the killer who’d murdered her family set his sights on Faith and her innocent baby girl Beck’s protective instincts kicked into high gear.
As dangerous pranks turned into deadly games, Beck needed Faith to trust him with the secrets of her past. And with a sad*istic killer circling closer, all of Beck s attention had to be on keeping her baby safe…
and ignoring his inconvenient attraction to the beautiful mother…
Agent Cal Rico knew that Jenna Laniere was lying. But then he discovered that she was only trying to protect her baby from an untrustworthy ex and his ruthless associates. A deadly game of cat and mouse forced Jenna into hiding. And if Cal didn’t help, the struggling single mother would have nowhere else to run.
