The Flamekeepers, by J. Gregory Smith.

Former SEAL Lukasz Gardocki thinks he’s seen the last of covert missions. That is, until he’s approached for a special job: infiltrate the Flamekeepers, a doomsday cult with a mysterious, charismatic leader that may be developing a deadly chemical weapon. Already entrenched with the group is Alecia Motley, the sister of Lukasz’s deceased best friend, who, after a shocking discovery, is now in over her head trying to expose the group’s secrets. As Lukasz is drawn deeper into the world of the Flamekeepers, his attraction to Alecia grows even as the group’s sinister goals start to come into focus; on the surface they appear to be preparing for the apocalypse, but the cult’s members may in fact be plotting to start it themselves. Lukasz will need all his training and skills to uncover the truth and expose the Flamekeepers before they learn his secret—or worse, carry out their plans.

Dawn Comes Early (The Brides Of Last Chance Ranch Series Book 1), by Margaret Brownley.

Looking for a woman of good character and pleasant disposition willing to learn the ranching business in Arizona territory. Must be SINGLE and prepared to remain so now and forever more. Will be given ownership of ranch. —Eleanor Walker

Disgraced dime novelist Kate Tenney fled the city that banned her latest book for a fresh start at a cattle ranch in the Arizona Territory. She hopes ranching turns out to be as romantic as she portrayed it in her novels.

But what awaits her is a much harder life. There is no room for mistakes on a working cattle ranch in 1895, and Kate is ill-prepared for her new life. She quickly learns that dawn comes early . . . every day. But she is tenacious.

Having been abandoned by a string of men, Kate has no intention of ever marrying. But she didn’t expect to meet Luke Adams either. Luke awakens feelings inside Kate she doesn’t recognize, and his steady presence is a constant distraction. She has only written about love in the past, never known it herself. But her feelings for Luke stand in the way of all she has to gain if she is chosen as the heir.

Perhaps God brought Kate to the barrenness of the desert to give new life to her jaded heart.

The Twins Platoon: An Epic Story of Young Marines at War in Vietnam, by Christy W. Sauro Jr..

In the evening of June 28, 1967, 150 young Americans were sworn into the Marine Corps as part of the pre-game ceremonies of a Minnesota Twins baseball game. Before the end of the fourth inning these volunteers were being hustled on to buses, on their way to boot camp. It was a journey that would take them from a boyhood of baseball in the American heartland to manhood on the killing fields of Vietnam. Christy Sauro was one of the Twins Platoon, and in this book he tells what it was like—from the pomp and ceremony of induction to the all-too-real initiation by fire that would shortly follow: in mere months, he and most of the Twins Platoon were on the ground in Vietnam and promptly faced with some of the toughest fighting of the war, the Siege of Khe Sanh and the Tet Offensive, including the brutal Battle for Hue. From baseball to boot camp to brutal combat, his is a firsthand story of American life being lived at the limits—and changed forever.
