African Skies by Karen Rispin
Lauren knew she would love Africa--she just never imagined how much. She had come to study wildlife . . . to join a world-renowned conservationist . . . to make a difference. And she enjoys it all: the work, the animals, the country, the people.
Well, all except Darren Grant. For all his good looks and his undeniable skill as the resident bush pilot, he is far too opinionated.
Unfortunately, Darren and Laurel can't seem to get away from each other. And when a season of starvation and epidemic strikes, they have to learn to work together.
Can they find harmony in the land they both love, despite the differences that tear them apart?

And only when Amber reconciles herself to God---and to His call on her life---can she and Ben help right the wrongs they have uncovered . . . .

Summit by Karen Rispin
Julie Miller loves living on the edge, savoring the beauty and majesty---and the challenge---of God's creation. Nothing brings all of that together like rock climbing. When she climbs, it's as though she's doing what she was created to do . . . as though she finally fits. Nothing and no one else has made her feel that way. Especially not her ex-fiancé, who made it painfully clear that Julie was a misfit in his eyes---and in God's.
Then David Hales shows up and starts getting all of her work. Which angers Julie almost as much is the fact that she can't stop thinking about the man!
Then Julie uncovers a sinister plot that puts both their lives in danger. Only by trusting each other---and God---will they survive the dangers that await them.
