For months, Leslie Collins has been trying to outrun the man who is trying to kill her. Determined to establish some semblance of a normal life while she finishes her masters degree, Leslie arrives at the home of Jordan Saber, looking for a job. Jordan takes pity on her and hires her to help out in the kitchen. He also falls in love with her. Jordan tries to protect Leslie from the pain of her past and the disapproving stares of those in her present. It seems lots of people don't like the fact that Jordan, a white man, has fallen in love with an African-American woman, even though they make a great team and really love each other. Although Jordan is dealing well with the race issue, Leslie must come to understand that regardless of the color of the wrapping, love is a precious gift.

"In Running Against the Wind, political pioneer Betty Taymor not only tells us why a liberal state like Massachusetts still shuts out women, but she does so in a crisp, readable, and personal way. By coming to know this woman who should have been President, we realize how much that state and this country are missing." -- Gloria Steinem

Against The Wind Secrets don't stay buried long in cattle country. Sarah Allen, the beautiful girl who humiliated Jackson Raines in high school, is back in town. Not so long ago, she couldn't wait to leave Wind Canyon, Wyoming, in her dust. But, recently widowed, she has nowhere else to go and finds herself on Jackson's ranch. And, despite everything, Jackson's finding himself reluctant to get rid of her. Sarah brings her own kind of trouble, and he can’t resist trouble. Enemies of her dead husband show up making threats, thinking she has something they're owed. They're not taking no for an answer, but what they will take is the one thing she has left - her daughter, and Jackson's the only one who might be able to save little Holly and bring her home. Against The Fire You can't fight what you can't see. And Gabriel Raines can't be sure just who's setting the fires in his new real estate development - and when two fires hit back-to-back, he knows it’s personal. The police suspect a local teen who's been in trouble before. But Lily Baker, a volunteer at the Family Abuse center, just can't believe the kid she’s been working with would go back to his delinquent ways. Determined to convince Gabe that she's right, Lily must get close to him and find out who's putting their neighborhood in jeopardy. And just as the arsonist's flames continue to burn, they find a heat developing between them. It might just turn into a full-fledged fire...if they can survive long enough.

“A rip-snorting, full-throttle novel . . . It kept me up late into the night.” —Stephen King Forced out of his firm, a hard-living attorney takes on one final, highly charged case—defending a notorious gang of bikers against murder charges A few years ago, Will Alexander was the top criminal lawyer in Santa Fe, with a thriving practice, a famously flamboyant courtroom style, and a marriage that landed him on the front page of the society section. Now, though, his wife has left him, and his constant boozing and womanizing have put his career in jeopardy. When Will’s partners ask him—forcefully—to take a leave of absence from the firm, his life in law seems finished. He has only one client: a gang of men who call themselves the Scorpions. Four rogue bikers are accused of committing a gruesome murder, and Will is the only one they want for their defense. Although all the evidence points toward their guilt, Will believes them, and it’s time for these outlaws to stick together.

"Victim" was not a word in Joyce's vocabulary, nor was her self-invented phrase "creep magnet". What's a creep magnet you ask? That would be Joyce. It translates, if there is a "creep" within a five mile radius, they would zero in on her each and every time. Somehow, someway her magnetism attracts them making her life complicated with their unsolicited advances. A mere twenty years old she fled in the middle of the night with her six month old baby girl, to escape her husband's wrath. Running from haunting nightmares and dark seeded childhood secrets that tormented her very soul, she moves to Nokomis, Florida into a small trailer with her mother. No money, no car, no life at all. Licking her wounds of a broken spirit she closes herself off to the world and those around her, finding solace in being alone. Hoping it will stop the night terrors. Stop the screaming, trembling and waking up drenched in sweat dreaming of hands tightly wrapped around her throat choking the life out of her. Her only pleasure two or three days a week is Venice Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. It is there where she escapes the pains of her past and drowns out her miserable depressed existence. She swims lap after lap in the clear warm waters of the gulf, as if the devil himself were pursuing her in exchange for penance for her sins. This was her escape, her mental therapy all designed to preserve her sanity. However, there is an unlikely stranger who wants to get to know her. What he doesn't know is that she is emotionally dead and wants nothing to do with men. She has built a wall around herself and wishes to stay safely within it. But this southern gentleman wants nothing better than to knock it down, piece by piece if he must. He is mesmerized by her curious nature towards him and won't take "no" for an answer. He turns to a long time friend for advice who just happens to work with Joyce. She is blackmailed into saying, "YES" to a dinner date. From that moment on everything changes. Her new companion, Shane introduces her to a life of serenity and peace. A world she hopes will start the healing process she so desperately needs. However, it does not come easy due to her past and her short comings, trust being one and the other is her absolute refusal of intimacy of any kind. Her fears run deep and she knows that love is not in her future; maybe a compromise would best suit her needs to again walk among the living or perhaps with this man, who can help mend her troubled soul. He opens up and shares his love of sailing with her, bringing on drama and adventure in her new life. But circumstances force her to move back to New Jersey where life is depressed and difficult to navigate daily. Her only saving grace is to return to Venice as often as possible to keep a relationship moving forward with what time she has left. She competes with a lifelong dream of Shane's to one day sail the world. Her destiny will not be as his is. He soon vanishes without a word. Against the Wind is based on a true story. It tells the real life drama of unforeseen mishaps that befall us all when we make the wrong choices and how we learn to live with them day to day.
