Brides of Alaska: Three Romances Set in America’s Last Frontier
by Tracie Peterson:
Journey to Alaska with bestselling author Tracie Peterson. The bleak wilderness of America’s 49th state challenges three women in different eras: Julie, a nurse, who must serve victims of a 1925 diphtheria epidemic; Beth, whose Canadian-born husband is killed in World War II; and Rita, who takes on the ultimate test of endurance, the Iditarod dog sled race. Each must surmount the obstacles in her life, and perhaps, with God’s help, find true love as well.

Think Wolf: A Mafia Thriller Set in Rural Italy by Michael Gregorio:
The second compelling thriller to feature resourceful park ranger Sebastiano Cangio, set against the glorious landscape of Italy’s Umbria region.
When the headless body of his fellow park ranger is found amidst the wooded hills of the Sybilline Mountains National Park, Sebastiano Cangio is convinced that he himself was the intended target. But what was Marzio doing out there on his own at dead of night? Is there any truth behind the wild stories of elves and goblins being seen in the surrounding forest?
Dismissive of the rumours of black magic and Satanism, Cangio is convinced that Marzio’s death heralds the return of the ‘ndrangheta, the most formidable criminal organization in Italy. If he is to escape their clutches a second time and uncover the truth about his colleague’s death, Cangio must take the initiative, draw on his finely-honed survival instincts and … think wolf.
