Three weeks away from her usual world. Three weeks that would change her life. Sitting in a Vermont jury room, Abby Barnes finds herself actually hoping to be chosen. The trial is a sensational headline-grabber, and the thought of being sequestered for a few weeks is appealing. The time away from a relationship that fails to excite her will give her a chance to think...and to make a long-overdue decision.
Then she meets fellow juror Ben Wyeth, a witty and charming college professor who shows Abby just what's been missing from her life. But although they share gruelling days of grisly testimony and long nights of passion, there is a part of Ben that he can never share with Abby, or any other woman. Just as the fate of an accused man lies in the balance, so too does Abby's, as she decides whether what Ben can give is enough...enough to last her a lifetime.

Joan Hohol has thrilled readers with the saga of the Wolfe family - four deliciously sexy, dynamic and devastating lawmen! And here's where it all began...

WOLFE WAITING: Deceptively easygoing police officer Jake Wolfe didn't think he was hero material. But when beautiful Sarah Cummings was threatened by three punks, Jake rode to her rescue. And once he saw the damsel in distress, Jake's protective instincts were roused. This Wolfe had found his mate - but could he bring her into his lair?

WOLFE WATCHING: Undercover narcotics officer Eric Wolfe trusted nobody - especially not lovely, lively women.

NIKKI BURGESS has survived a terrible marriage and an even worse divorce. And she's just about given up hope of ever finding love and happiness. But when her ex-husband suddenly dies, she gets custody of her kids again and a chance to start over and do it right.

DIXIE MCPHERSON, on the other hand, has had way too much love. She has eleven tennis bracelets, dozens of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie and a tarnished reputation when all she ever wanted was true love, a partner and a family.

CARLISLE BARTLETT is loyal, generous, kindhearted and the funniest guy slinging drinks in the back of an airplane. But he has an ugly little secret. The only kind of love he's used to comes with bruises.

They are three people who could seriously use a break. A fresh start. A shot at success and a chance to shine. Maybe a little romance - the kind that sticks. And some adventure wouldn't hurt. So when they're presented with the challenge of joining a team starting a new airline in Las Vegas, they don't hesitate. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, these three friends are going in search of their own blue skies.

"Carr offers a well-written, warm-hearted story and genuinely fun read." - Publishers Weekly on the House on Olive Street

"An Old-Fashioned, Big-Hearted Novel...with its epic yearning caught in the 19th century, somewhere between Trollope and Twain...The rich detail makes for vintage Irving." - The Bost Sunday Globe
"THE CIDER HOUSE RULES is filled with people to love and to feel for...The characters in John Irving's novel break all the rules, and yet they remain noble and free-spirited. Victims of tragedy, violence, and injustice, their lives seem more interesting and full of thought-provoking dilemmas than the lives of many real people." - The Houston Post

Dear Reader,

COLTER'S WIFE has always held a special place in my heart because I believe it is the first of my novels that fully conveys my love of the magnificent American West - the breathtaking landscapes, the excitement and danger of the frontier, and the passionate, strong-willed people who built lives in an untamed land.

Set in Wyoming Territory, it tells the story of Kinyan Holloway, who has no idea how she's going to survive when her husband is killed in a range accident. Kinyan is torn between the Sioux world where she was raised and her responsibilities to her chidren and their heritage - the largest ranch in the Territory.

Into her life rides a scarred stranger who's fast with a gun. Benjamin Colter has tried to put vengeance behind him, but the past seems destined to catch up with him. What he wants now is Kinyan Holloway - and her ranch - but can get them only if he defeats a deadly rival and agrees to become a father to three children who want more from him than he's able to give.

Enjoy!

Joan Johnston
