INDEPENDENCE PASS by Brian MacEvilly (drama-love story/action)
In 1992, when a firebrand feminist activist becomes trapped in a remote Colorado village, she finds she has only one way out - across a dangerous mountain pass - and only one man who can guide her. Unfortunately he's her worst nightmare: an unrepentant, old-school "man's man" - everything she preaches against, loathes and fears.

RUNNERS UP
YOUR GIRL IS MINE by Jacqueline Hicks (thriller)
A sweet, successful singer with only twenty-eight days to live must contend with his powerful twin brother who has kidnapped the only woman he has ever loved.

DARE COUNTY by Irwin Greenstein (drama)
In the 1960s Deep South, a moonshine runner is tormented by his racist community after being decorated for saving an African American during the Korean War. Bound by a shadowy murder to the Ku Klux Klan sheriff, he finally exposes the actual killer and risks his life to champion the NAACP Freedom Riders crusade for equality when arrival of their bus ignites a race riot in his hometown.

A highly successful veteran writer impeded by writer's block is paired via her well-intentioned agent with a talented newbie.
