Vanished (Callahan & McLane), by Kendra Elliot.

When an eleven-year-old is abducted on her way to school, the FBI doesn’t waste a moment, sending agents to scour the area and embedding Special Agent Ava McLane with the distraught family. In the eye of the storm is local detective Mason Callahan, whose life is crumbling to pieces—he’s related to the victim, and his longtime confidential informant has just been murdered.
Both he and Agent McLane hole up in the victim’s family home. Every second counts in a kidnapping case, and the stakes keep rising the longer the girl is missing. As Ava and Mason struggle to hold the family together in their darkest hour, the two investigators find themselves drawn to each other.

For My Lady's Heart (Medieval Hearts, 1), by Laura Kinsale.

Pursued by her enemies, flattered and courted for her lands, a powerful, devious princess is desperate to reach refuge. Melanthe can trust only one man amid the lies, the mysterious Green Knight—a true knight who never wavers; a man who cannot comprehend deceit. But as an impossible love grows between them, betrayal becomes their only future…

In this classic romance, Laura Kinsale has crafted a rich, sensual portrait of life during the Middle Ages. And, now for the first time, readers can choose between two versions of the story. Both are included in this same ebook.

The first is the original published novel filled with Middle English dialogue and deep period detail. The second (included only here in the ebook version) has been reworked by the author to include a tighter read and more modern words for dialogue. Whichever you decide to read, you'll be richly rewarded with a story of love and honor for the ages.
