Cover Reveal: Finding North by Allyson Gottlieb

Title: Finding North
Author: Allyson Gottlieb
Series: Compass #1
Cover Design: Cover Me, Darling!

Sometimes you have to lose everything to find what you’ve really been looking for.

Katherine Zova spends her days patching up soldiers in the Alliance’s army while praying for time to heal the wounds on her own broken heart. Crushing loss numbs her waking hours and nightmares threaten her sanity when she closes her eyes. All she wants is to be free, but instead she’s forced to trade one cage for another.

Reynan Caverly wears his uniform only out of loyalty to his father, who in his quest to build a new America has little time to spend with his only son. Indifferent to his sensational Las Vegas lifestyle, all he wants is to feel a connection with someone. A seemingly impossible request—until the day he finds a girl with haunting eyes in a group of captured Alliance soldiers.

Some wounds cut too deep to deal with alone. Sometimes only love can heal. But in a country torn apart by civil war, nothing comes without a price. And for Kat and Reynan, falling in love may cost more than they’re willing to pay.

     Reynan was smiling at me in a way that made me ever so slightly nervous again. “You sound so happy when you talk about home. I can tell you really love it there.”
     My stomach muscles tensed involuntarily. This was skating dangerously close to subjects from last night’s interrogation.
     These were Reynan’s kind eyes looking back at me, though, not the cold, cruel stare of his father. So I took another deep breath and said, “I have some pretty good memories, yes.”
     “What was the school system like? I’ve been homeschooled all my life, for one reason or another, so I’ve never really seen a public school.”
     I started to laugh, then covered it with a cough. “Public school sucks. Be thankful you didn’t have to deal with disgusting cafeteria food, lockers that stick, and butt-ugly PE uniforms.” He chuckled as I continued, “Homeschooled…I can’t imagine what that must be like.”
     “Yeah, well, it was pretty nice. My father made me do a lot of physical training, but as far as book-learning, I got a lot of choice about what I studied, so I stopped doing math as soon as I could get away with it.”
     “Nice.” I smirked. “My mom made me take it all through high school. Calculus was the bane of my existence.”
     “That sucks.” He looked away, shoving his hands in his pockets as he added, “It was lonely, though. Homeschooling.”
     There was a weight in my chest that felt a lot like sympathy. “Did you have a favorite subject?” I asked, trying to take my mind off that topic before I thought too long about it. “Mine was English.”
     “I liked history, which is kind of a useless subject in some ways. If you really think about it, though, somebody had to write these books, which is kind of like playing God. Can you imagine trying to sum up all of human existence into a “greatest hits” reel? That’s some serious power right there. Then I wonder what the history books will look like in a hundred years, and how much of what’s important to me, what I lived through, will end up preserved for future generations to learn about.”
     I sucked in a breath, the indirect reminder of the current state of the country—of the war, and our positions on opposite sides of it—like a bucket of freezing water over my head, a shock to my system. Moreover, there was the realization that until then, we’d been chatting away like a pair of actual friends.
     I tried to put some space between us, but the passage was barely wide enough for two people to walk comfortably side by side. I was grateful when it widened out into a small chamber. More pictures and hieroglyphics covered the walls, and a gold sarcophagus lay in the center on a slightly raised platform.
     I stroked my fingers over the top, shivering slightly at the cool metal. “This place is awesome,” I said, in an attempt to break the awkward silence that had settled in between us like an old friend. “I can’t imagine what kind of fun—and trouble—you must have gotten into as a kid with the Strip as your playground.”
     Reynan forced a slight smile, though his expression was tense, almost pained. “I didn’t always live here.”
     The tone of his voice, while not entirely standoffish, definitely seemed to shut down any further line of inquiry.
     All these hints and scraps of information had me wondering about his childhood. It couldn’t have been traditional, given who his father was, and I startled myself with the realization that I actually wanted to know more about it—more about him.
     Somehow, despite all my best attempts to stay detached, I’d started to care just a little bit about him. Even that little bit scared me, because I knew how easy it was for something like that to grow into more.

Pretty Reckless & Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy by Jodi Linton

Titles: Pretty Reckless &
Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy
Author: Jodi Linton
Series: Deputy Laney Briggs, #1 & #1.5
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Pretty Reckless
She’s dead-set on giving one bullheaded cowboy the boot.

Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case.
Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…


Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy
Some cowboys are worth getting dirty for.

In her latest adventure, sassy Deputy Laney Briggs discovers the local high school football coach passed out under the stadium bleachers wearing nothing but a smile…and his wife’s lingerie.

Things really start to get wild when she runs into the smoking hot Federal Marshal, Colt Larsen, snooping around the Granger’s house. Quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas, Laney finds herself up to her eyeballs in a case involving a ruthless motorcycle gang, a Mexican drug cartel, a kidnapping, and a shoot-out to rival the O.K. Corral.

In over their heads, Laney calls in the big guns—her very own Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, who’s ready to fulfill every last one of her desires. But as things heat up between them, the stakes get higher than ever, and Gunner’s help may not be enough for Laney to get out alive…

Marrying My Forever
Sam and Rae Ann's story continues. They met and fell in love in Someday, My Forever. Their relationship grew and strengthened and now they're back to share the story of their wedding.

Someday, My Forever
The honesty in his voice and expression melted my heart. Shooting him a quick smile, I tilted my head back and quickly kissed him before drawing back slightly. His eyes searched mine, as if assuring himself I was feeling calmer, before he took hold of my hand and pulled me up as he stood. “Let's walk some more,” he suggested.

I nodded and we left the building hand in hand. When we reached Johnson Street, Sam guided me into the heart of campus and pointed out various buildings as we walked. He stopped me at the bottom of Bascom Hill and explained how it was a popular place for sledding in winter; I laughed at the idea of dining hall trays being used as makeshift sleds. “Just wait and see.” He replied, smirking, and we continued to stroll.

Sam stopped me again a few blocks later, and pointed toward a building just off University Avenue. “This is the Chazen Museum of Art, one of my favorite places on campus.” He tugged out his phone and checked the time. “It won't open for a while yet but I'd like to show it to you.”

Marrying My Forever
The guests applauded and we turned to face them before making our way up the aisle and out into the hall. I drew Rae Ann to me and kissed her again.

“We did it, beautiful,” I murmured, leaning my forehead against hers. The moment between us was fleeting and our wedding party soon joined us. Rae Ann and I greeted each of them with hugs and received congratulatory replies. A receiving line was formed and we greeted our guests, thanking every person for celebrating our day with us.

Rae Ann grabbed my hand as the last guest walked away, and we shared another kiss. Catcalls from Darrow and Jed had us shaking with laughter.
