Book #6 of the
Halo Legacy Series

Shiloh lit the candles with trembling hands. Not because she feared fire any longer, but because she had never asked a man to marry her before. 

Those at the farm had disappeared in honor of Jeremiah coming to dinner tonight...

"Hello? Where is everyone?" Jeremiah's voice echoed through the farmhouse. 

Shiloh swallowed and smoothed nonexistent wrinkles out of her suede skirt. "On the back porch." 

Jer emerged from the house and looked around. "Where is everyone else?" 

With a shrug, Shiloh tried to keep her voice nonchalant. "Had other things to do." 

She bit her lower lip as Jer surveyed the small round table set for two and the glow of the candles…"Special occasion tonight?"

Book #6 of the
Halo Legacy Series

"The barn is on fire!" Shiloh's horrified cry alerted others at the farm. While one person called 911, others started the pump that ran the irrigation system to start spraying water on the fire and opened the barn doors to let the animals out. 
Shiloh stared at the flames, terror swelling up in her chest and choking off her breath. 

Orange tongues of fire roared toward her like the angry bellow of a giant beast intent on swallowing her whole-- 
No! Shiloh shoved away the memories that kept her frozen in place. I have to help! 

She forced her feet to move. Forced herself in the direction of the flames. With shaking hands, she joined those accounting for the animals who had charged out of the barn. 

"Where's Mystique?" Shiloh shouted to be heard over the roar of the fire and other noises. Her dappled grey horse wasn't among the animals clustered in a nearby pasture. 

"She must still be in the barn." Phoenix stared at the structure rapidly being engulfed in flames. "She's terrified of fire." 

Without thinking, Shiloh stripped off her sweater and doused it in one of the water troughs. 

"What are you doing?" Phoenix grabbed at her arm. 

"Finding my courage." Shiloh slipped out of Phoenix's grasp as she flung the soaking sweater over her head and ran for the barn. 

"Leave her. She'll never get out." Shiloh pushed away the memories of the arsonists' voices in her head and whispered, "I'm coming, Mystique. Don't lose faith, baby." 

Keeping a vision of the little mare firmly in her mind, Shiloh crouched low to stay under the worst of the smoke and moved as fast as she could toward Mystique's stall. 

The stall door stood open, but Mystique huddled in the back corner, too terrified to find her way to freedom. 

"It's time to go to outside." 

The little mare jerked at the sound of Shiloh's voice and reared back, the whites of her eyes reflecting a terror Shiloh knew so well. Use the energy. Call on your guides and angels to focus. 

"Come on, baby. You saved me, now it's my turn." Shiloh held out her hand and Mystique timidly stretched her neck to sniff. 

"Let's take a walk, sweet girl." In slow motion, Shiloh stretched the sweater over the horse's head and grasped her halter. Mystique jerked again, but Shiloh held on. "Just a walk, baby. Just a walk." 

She took a step forward and the little mare followed. 

As they emerged from the stall, flames seemed to surround them. The closest exit was the side door into the llama's pasture. Shiloh hesitated only a split second. "He'll just have to tolerate me this time. Come on, girl." 

Once Mystique started moving, she stepped quickly toward the exit, with Shiloh's arm looped over her neck. 

They emerged into the twilight, and were immediately soaked by water from the irrigation hose, manned by Richard "Bigsy" Dalton and Jane. 

They were safe! 

As tears and creek water streamed down her face, Shiloh laughed and tossed the sweater off her head. She gave Mystique a kiss and let go, allowing the mare to trot to the far end of the pasture.

Book #6 of the
Halo Legacy Series

The official wedding of Deputy Dawson Browning and Marly O'Shea was planned to be the highlight of a celebration unveiling the first phase of the new buildings in Halo on October 31. 

That day dawned clear and crisp. The thermometer had dipped below freezing the night before, so a shimmer of sparkling white-jeweled frost covered everything in Halo. 

At noon, Shiloh joined the other women of Marly's wedding party at the O'Shea family house for a light lunch and to pamper the bride before dressing for the ceremony. The groom and his party drove to Bill and Audrey's ranch to entertain themselves with strict orders not to make any bruises that would show. 

Several hours later, the wedding parties met on the outskirts of town to start the procession to the ceremony itself. The women moved from cars to horse-drawn carriages, while the men unloaded horses from trailers to ride into town. 

The bride was being assisted into her private carriage when an explosion rocked the nearest horse trailer. 

The wedding party froze for a moment, then weapons appeared from boots and holsters tucked under jackets as the O'Shea brothers leaped into action, calmed the frightened horses, then rode full gallop to encircle the area where the blast occurred. The rest of the men hustled the women and children into vans--maybe the least dangerous place to be when little offered safety from explosions. 

…The pandemonium faded into a sepia-toned movie playing without sound in the background of Shiloh's mind as she stared at the smoke billowing toward the sky a short distance away. 

…Swept up in the arms of her fireman angel once again, Jeremiah slid into the vehicle with Shiloh on his lap and slammed the door shut as Collin shoved the vehicle into gear and punched the gas. 

Shiloh clung to Jeremiah, memories from the day her clinic burned as clear in her mind as the mountain air surrounding Halo.
