Bio of Rachelle McCalla:

Rachelle McCalla spends her days fighting the battle between her four young children and a house paved in white carpet. At the end of each day, if she still has the strength to see straight, she sits down at her computer and surfs the web until her brain goes numb. Her stories are actually written by elves who sneak into her house while she’s asleep. If you have time at the end of your day to read her work, she hopes you like it. She’d hate to disappoint the elves.

Blurb for Dead Reckoning by Rachelle McCalla:

Risky maneuvers are no novelty for stunt pilot Ginny McCutcheon… until danger follows her to the ground. Someone’s targeting Ginny— and former air force pilot Ben McAlister won’t rest until he finds the culprit. He’ll stay glued to Ginny’s side until she’s safe, whether the stubborn beauty accepts him there or not.

Ginny tries to resent Ben’s protectiveness—and instead finds herself falling for the man whose fierce determination so perfectly matches hers. But trusting Ben means going home, something she can’t bear to do. Until someone gets very close to grounding her—and Ben—forever.

Blurb for Shadow on the Sand

Carrie Carter’s small café in Seaside, New Jersey, is populated with a motley crew of locals although Carrie only has eyes for Greg Barnes. He’s recovering from a vicious crime that three years ago took the lives of his wife and children—and from the year he tried to drink his reality away. While her heart does a happy Snoopy dance at the sight of him, he never seems to notice her, to Carrie’s chagrin. 

When Carrie’s dishwasher is killed and her young waitress disappears, Greg finds himself drawn into helping Carrie solve the mysteries … and into her life. But Carrie has a painful past, too, and when the reason she once ran away shows up in town, the fragile relationship she’s built with Greg threatens to implode from the weight of the baggage they both carry. Two wounded hearts struggle to find a way to make one romance work. Failure seems guaranteed when Carrie locates her waitress but is taken hostage …
