“Blackwood’s Woman.” J.T. Blackwood and Joanna Beaumont meet for the first time when her Jeep breaks down on his New Mexico ranch where she lives in one of the cabins and he is taking time off from Dundee Security based in Atlanta. He assumes she is a spoiled high society Virginian rusticating while she heard from his sister Elena that the former Secret Service Agent has never had a meaningful relationship. However, though attracted to one another, Joanna is skittish when J.T. comes near her even pulling out a gun on him. He soon learns why she fears touching when the predatory cause for her hiding in the Land of Enchantment comes for her.

“Roarke’s Wife.” Cleo McNamara hires Dundee Security expert Simon Roarke to be her husband, protect her and donate his sperm. This is the only way she can take charge of her late daddy’s firm McNamara Industries. Simon likes the pay but wants nothing to do with his offspring once the child is born as he still grieves the death of his daughter in which he holds himself culpable. As the heiress and the hired gun fall in love, someone tries to take out Cleo.

These are reprints of two mid 19990-s Dundee Security personal protection romantic suspense thrillers. Both are well written exciting story lines starring protagonists with past traumas and present danger.
