Double Crossing. A murder arranged as a suicide … a missing deed … and a bereft daughter whose sheltered world is shattered. August, 1869: Lily Granville is stunned by her father’s murder. Only one other person knows about a valuable California gold mine deed -- both are now missing. Lily heads west on the newly opened transcontinental railroad, determined to track the killer. She soon realizes she is no longer the hunter but the prey. As things progress from bad to worse, Lily is uncertain who to trust—the China-bound missionary who wants to marry her, or the wandering Texan who offers to protect her … for a price. Will Lily survive the journey and unexpected betrayal?.

south of sun


Bleeding Kansas has made the leap from territory to statehood, but U. S. Marshal, Alistair B. Taggart is well aware the violence he has been protecting its citizens from isn't likely to stop when the Civil War breaks out only weeks later. On one of Taggart's regular stops at Lecompton, the former territorial capital, James Harper seeks his help in breaking up the rustling ring which has been plaguing him the last few months. Reluctant to get involved in local matters, Taggart nonetheless finds it hard to refuse the rancher and agrees to help. But Kansas has only started building its reputation as the wildest state in the Union, and Taggart will have to deal with a runaway slave, Jayhawkers, highwaymen, and those bent on revenge before he can solve the case. Adding to his woes are his own fears that age may finally be catching up with him. Resolution will come, but at a price he never expected to pay.
