Summary

Daniel McFarland has refined the life of a war correspondent down to an art. He knows how to get information out of officials who won't talk. He knows how to find the one man with a car who can get you out of town. He knows how to judge the gravity of a situation in a war-torn area (it's a bad sign when the dogs are gone). And he knows how to get to the heart of an explosive story and emerge unscathed. To Daniel, getting the story is everything.  
 
When a trip to a warlord's camp in Uganda goes awry and Daniel's companions end up dead, he has his first serious moment of reckoning with his lack of faith, his steely approach to life, and his cool dispatch of the people around him. And as he falls in love with Julia Cadell, an idealistic doctor, he begins to see the world anew. The two run off together to a canal house in the middle of London, where they find a refuge from their perilous lives.  
 
But they can't ignore the real world forever and are soon persuaded to travel to East Timor, where the entire nation has become a war zone. As the militia prepares to sacrifice the lives of hundreds of refugees, Daniel must decide whether to get the story of a lifetime or to see beyond the headlines to the people whose lives are in the balance.  
 
"This touching, elegantly written tale aptly describes love and friendship amid the terror of contemporary war." 
-- The Dallas Morning News

    Jenna stopped suddenly in the middle of the road when she saw something impossible.
    
    A unicorn! Of course she didn’t have her camera at the ready.
    
    But when it bounded into the forest, she had to make a choice. Follow it or forget she ever saw it.
    
    Excerpt:
    
    Bringing my car to a stop I couldn't believe what I was seeing. In the middle of the road stood a pure, sapphire unicorn. Rubbing my eyes and pinching myself, I watched this large, beautiful animal look into my car with a curious expression.
    
    I frantically searched around for a camera so I could at least have proof I saw unicorn. But with my luck, I couldn't find my camera. Maybe I could get something else that would prove that this was real instead of a dream.
    
    Maybe some hair. That was it! Should I dare approach him?
    
    As soon as I stepped outside my vehicle, the unicorn pranced out into a meadow. Not believing what I was seeing, I followed.
    
    "How in the world am I going to prove that you exist?" I muttered to myself, feeling foolish since no one was around.
    
    He allowed me to approach him. I wasn't frightened, but rather in awe of what I was seeing. It may have been dangerous to approach such a beast, but I had to prove it was alive, even if it was just for just my own curiosity.
    
    Stepping forward, the unicorn sniffed my clothes and looked into my eyes. I felt a connection to the creature and wanted to please him. I couldn't explain it, but that's how I felt.
    
    When the unicorn tore off my shirt, I just stood there and shivered. I couldn't believe this was happening and didn't know how to handle it. Tentatively, I touched his muzzle and felt his soft nose. I felt a strong urge overcome my senses and found myself ripping off my bra, bearing my breasts to him.
    
    His soft muzzle rested on my pert breasts as he licked at my nipples. Shuddering in pleasure, I shoved them in his face. He nuzzled and sucked on one of my breasts as I stood there, shuddering with pleasure.
    
    He switched to the other one and sucked it into his large mouth as his tongue lashed my nipple. I panted as excitement filled me.
    
    My hand slid down to my pants and slid underneath to my panties as I touched my soft folds and excited clit.

    Blake Monroe hasn’t had the easiest life, but she’s never been one to dwell on her misfortunes, preferring to see the world as a place where you get what you give.
     
    Having had an especially troubling childhood, Blake’s aware she doesn’t exactly fit the definition of “normal.” Her lack of filter, dry sense of humor, and uncanny ability to read people make her rather unique—and difficult to live with. When her latest roommate has had enough of her antics, Blake decides living with a man might suit her better.
     
    Gavin Gibson’s a dreamer whose artsy aspirations don’t meet the high expectations of his wealthy family. Cast off and cut off, Gavin needs a place to live. When he’s invited to share Blake’s quaint apartment, he cannot pass it up. With a knack for spotting the good in others, Gavin can see past Blake’s quirks—and neither of them can ignore their sexual chemistry.
     
    As sparks fly, their genuine affection for each other grows, and Gavin begins to break down Blake’s defenses. But can Blake open up to reveal the damage she’s worked so hard to conceal?
