Firestick / by Johnstone, William W,author.; Johnstone, J. A.,author.;
"In his mountain-man days, Elwood "Firestick" McQueen was practically a living legend. His hunting, tracking, and trapping skills were known far and wide. But it was his deadly accuracy with a rifle that earned him the Indian name "Firestick." His two best buddies are Malachi "Beartooth" Skinner-whose knife was as fatal as a grizzly's chompers-and Jim "Moosejaw" Hendricks, who once wielded the jawbone of a moose to crush his enemies in the heat of battle. Of course, things are different nowadays. The trio have finally settled down, running a horse ranch in West Texas-and spending quality time with their lady friends. But if you think these old boys are ready for lives of leisure, think again . . . Firestick is the town marshal. Beartooth and Moosejaw are his deputies. And when a hired gunman shows up with bullets blazing, these three hard-cases are ready to prove they aren't getting older. They're getting deadlier "--

Tools of engagement : a novel / by Bailey, Tessa,author.(GaAaGPL)847666;
"After helping her friends achieve their dreams, Bethany finally has time to focus on her own: flip a house, from framework to furnishings, all by herself. Except her older brother runs the company and refuses to take her seriously. When a television producer gets wind of the Castle sibling rivalry, they're invited on Flip Off, a competition to see who can do the best renovation. Bethany wants bragging rights, but she needs a crew and the only member of her brother's construction team willing to jump ship is Wes Daniels, the new guy in town. His Texas drawl and handsome face got under Bethany's skin on day one, but the last thing she needs is some cocky young cowboy in her way. As the race to renovate heats up, Wes and Bethany are forced into close quarters, trading barbs and biting banter as they remodel the ugliest house on the block. It's a labor of love, hate, and everything in between, and soon sparks are flying."--Provided by publisher.

North Chastain has always had the mysterious ability to channel energy through crystals. He and his father both have the ability, which is what the doctors believe is the cause of his father's sudden coma. But North knows that isn't the case. He's convinced it was brought on by an artifact his father had been looking for--and found. With his unique talent of channeling energy through crystals, North has the best chance at recovering the artifact, but he also needs someone who knows the shadowy world of crazy collectors, deceptive dealers, and dangerous raiders. Sierra Raines is looking for a fresh start after a failed gig at a major auction house. With her reputation ruined, she turns to the murky backwaters of the paranormal artifacts trade. She takes commissions to find, acquire, and transport objects that are hot commodities in the antiquities world, staying in the shadows to avoid attracting the attention of the Foundation. When North Chastain approaches her, Sierra takes him on as a client, though not without reservations. They wind up in Fogg Lake, and soon discover that they will have to trust each other in order to not only save North's father but also to survive"--
