Grami McAdoo 036

Caryl McAdoo was born in Long Beach, California, but got to Texas as quickly as possible at the too-young-to-remember-anything-else age of six months and celebrated her first birthday—and all the rest since—as a Texan. Growing up in Northwest Dallas, as a seventh grader at Letot Elementary, a homework assignment required an essay on ‘What will you be doing in 2000?' Looking into the future, Caryl saw herself as an inter-galactically famous author, streaking from planet to planet signing books.

Absolute Pi
It all started one spring morning with a complicated calculus problem that Beth Bryant couldn't figure out. Hoping to get a little help from the brilliant Stone twins, Rick and Ryan, and their idiot savant relative they call "Cousin", Beth leaves them the problem, getting their assurance that they'll have it figured out by early afternoon. But by two o'clock, the calculus problem is the least of the foursome's problems. When Beth goes to retrieve the promised answer, she finds Ryan dead, slumped over his computer keyboard, while Cousin babbles incoherently about pi in the corner.

Then the police arrive, informing her that someone tried to murder Ryan's brother Rick as well. Suddenly, she finds herself under suspicion, and the FBI has become involved. Now, not only do the police suspect she's withholding information and pull her in for more questioning, but the Feds are following her every move...and they're looking for more than who murdered Ryan, and she has no idea what it could be. All that Beth is absolutely sure of are three things; she shouldn't trust anyone, nothing is what it appears to be, and she is in great danger.

Hearts Stolen
Unbeknownst to loved ones, a headstrong young wife is snatched off the prairie by two Comanche braves, carried north of the Red River, and traded to their war chief for ponies. After five years, a small detail of Texas Rangers rides into camp, and she determines that day will bring freedom or death. She'll remain captive no more. Sassy Nightengale almost gives up hope until a company of Texas Rangers rides into Bold Eagle's peace camp.

Purposing in her heart to escape captivity with her blue eyed, four- year-old that day, she does everything she can to be noticed. Famed Texas Ranger Levi Baylor spots the red headed beauty and agrees to the war chief's price adding his personal horse and weapon to the Republic agents' offerings.

Sassy's still married to her son's father, and Levi's honor bound to deliver her home—to her husband. Can their forbidden love be made holy? God hates divorce. Is it wrong to hope, expect Nightengale to relinquish his wife and son? Will Sassy and Levi find the redemption they seek for their troubled souls?

Vow Unbroken
A spunky young widow hires a War of 1812 veteran with a bad reputation to help her get her cotton to Jefferson to meet the wagon train, and sparks fly--but can she love a man who doesn't love the Lord?

Susannah Abbot Baylor reluctantly hires Henry Buckmeyer to help her along the Jefferson Trace, the hard stretch of land between her Texas farm and the cotton market, where she is determined to get a fair price for her crop. It's been a rough year, and she's in danger of losing the land her husband left to her and the children, but she'll need help getting both of her wagons to Jefferson safely. She knows Henry's reputation as a layabout and is prepared for his insolence, but she is not expecting his irresistible good looks or his gentle manner. Soon they are entwined in a romantic relationship that only gets more complicated when Susannah learns that Henry doesn't know God the way she does. Dangers arise on the road--but none as difficult as the trial her heart is going through.

Will Susannah and Henry's love overcome their differences? And will she get her crop safely to the cotton market with enough money to save the farm? In this heartening and adventurous tale, a young woman's fortitude, faith, and heart are put to the ultimate test.
