Under the Cover of Mercy by Rebecca Connolly.
The Great War has come to Brussels, and Edith Cavell, Head Nurse at Berkendael Medical Institute, faces an impossible situation. She has sworn an oath to help any who are wounded, under whatever flag they are found. But Governor von Lüttwitz, the ranking German officer, has ordered her and her nurses to also stand guard over the wounded Allied prisoners of war and prevent them from escaping. Edith feels that God called her to be a healer, not a jailer. How can she heal these broken boys, only to see them returned to the hands of their oppressors to be beaten again? So when members of the Belgian resistance, desperate for help, bring two wounded British soldiers to her hospital in secret, she decides she will heal the soldiers, and then help smuggle them out of the hospital to freedom. With her loyal friend and fellow nurse, Lizzie, by her side, Edith establishes her hospital as a safe house for the resistance, laboring tirelessly to save as many soldiers as she can. Working under the watchful eyes of the German army, Edith faces challenging odds as she fights to bring hope to her small corner of a war-torn world.
Reunited on Sugar Maple Road by Debbie Mason.
"Highland Falls police officer Emma Scott is a workaholic who doesn't do small talk, hugs, or anything else touchy-feely. Ever since her fiancé's death over a year ago, Emma's been sleepwalking through life, and her family is growing increasingly worried about her. Enter Josh Callahan, her brother's best friend. Josh is obnoxiously good-looking and, even more annoyingly, in a perpetually cheerful mood. Though he may drive her crazy, his suggestion to fake date him is brilliant because there are no feelings involved. At least, not at first. High school football coach and volunteer firefighter Josh Callahan is a fun-loving guy who is all about friends, family, and community. After his wife left him, he committed to staying un committed, except now he's earned the nickname "Heartbreaker of Highland Falls." Spending time with Emma will improve his rep while she can remember what it means to get out and enjoy life again. And his plan works...until Josh realizes that the feelings he has for Emma are all too real. But is Emma ready to share her heart again?"-- Provided by publisher.
