A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer

Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. When a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts the job. Charlotte Atherton, a former headmistress, has promised to protect the orphaned girl entrusted to her care, and nothing will stop her from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter who comes looking for them. When Miss Atherton produces evidence that she is Lily’s legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he’s been led to believe. When new dangers threaten, these enemies have no choice but to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear.

No Place to Hide by Lynette Eason

It’s not every day you see your childhood friend and onetime crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes it were under different circumstances. She can’t believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she’s determined to find him and help him clear his name. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one looking for him. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to prove his innocence and prevent a catastrophe. Lynette Eason delivers nonstop action as Jackie and Ian travel a dangerous road—one that may lead straight to destruction.

Dauntless by Dina L. Sleiman
(Bethany House; ISBN 9780764213120; ebook ISBN 9781441265371; $12.99)
Lady Merry Ellison is an enemy of the throne after her father’s failed assassination attempt upon the king. Bold and uniquely skilled, she will go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village—a group known as “The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest.” Merry finds her charge more difficult as their growing notoriety brings increasing trouble. Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, he’s forced to reexamine everything he’s known.
