Maureen Child Books Overview
In the ten years since magic has reemerged in the world, witches have become feared and hunted. For weeks Shea Jameson has been haunted by visions of fire. When she unintentionally performs a spell in public, she becomes one of the hunted. Her only hope is Torin, a dangerously sensual man who claims to be her eternal mate.
BACHELOR BATTALIONASSIGNMENT: FATHERHOOD!Captain Jeff Ryan fought a lot of battles as a marine. But daddy duty was his toughest assignment ever! When an infant was left on his doorstep, Jeff called in reinforcements and temporary nanny Laura Morgan marched into his life. Suddenly, lovely Laura was giving the orders, and Jeff was under siege. Then baby Miranda captured Laura’s heart and was ready to commandeer Jeff’s. But he had never planned on being a career father or husband! Was it only a matter of time before Jeff’s reserve would weaken and he’d forever surrender his heart?BACHELOR BATTALION: Defending their country is their duty; love and marriage is their reward! Don’t miss the next irresistible military bachelor in The Oldest Living Married Virgin, in November.
When a marine rescue mission went awry, Staff Sergeant Travis Hawks realized he was in for the fight of his life. He and Lisa Chambers the uppity heiress he was trying to save were stranded and forced to race across the Arabian desert to stay alive. Despite their bickering throughout the blazing hot days, one sultry night Travis and Lisa ignited a scorching passion that neither could forget. But when they reached safety, would the bonds they forged disappear like a desert mirage…
or endure to the altar and beyond?
Twins? The startling revelation that his affair with Jenna Baker had produced two little boys was almost impossible to grasp. Tycoon Nick Falco had never considered himself the settling down type, yet now that fatherhood had been thrust upon him, he was determined to give his sons his name. But their mother wasn’t about to let him back into her life at least not without those three little words Nick had never, ever said.
1 bestselling author Maureen Child first introduced you to the big, boisterous Candellano family in her novels Finding You and Knowing You. Now, welcome back to tiny Chandler, California, where there’s always an extra place at the table and Mama Candellano is ready to offer lots of unsolicited advice, especially in matters of the heart…
On the surface, things always came easy for Nick Candellano with his dashing good looks, easy charm, and penchant for women. When an injury permanently sidelines the pro football running back, he’s forced to start over with a new job and trouble in the form of Jonas, a twelve year old boy, who claims Nick is his father. If it’s true, he wants to do the right thing. The problem is Tasha Flynn, Jonas’ foster mother, a woman as lovely as she is defiant…
Tasha thinks Nick is bad news for Jonas and is trying to destroy the only family she’s got. Tasha tries to ignore the sparks of attraction that go off every time the handsome football player is near her. She’s got secrets no one knows about and reasons she can never let her heart go unguarded. Nick Candellano is one person she should run from.
