    – Protective Duty by Jessica R. Patch
    – Small-Town Nanny by Lee Tobin McClain
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  3. I love the LI Suspense line so pretty much any of these would be great reads. In the Historical line, Once More a Family looks excellent as does Bride by Arrangement. I’ve read most of them in the regular Love Inspired line (thanks to my local library!) and all were fantastic!

  5. As usual, the ones I am most interested in are the Love Inspired Suspense titles, I really enjoy that line and haven’t read one I didn’t like. I’ve actually already read, and enjoyed Seek and Find, Cold Case Witness, and Protective Duty. I have Deception and Dark Harbor on my TBR shelf and am looking forward to enjoying them as well.
