So when Sam showed up in her life once again, larger than life and sexier than ever, Chloe was furious that she still had feelings for this man who would take her out to dinner one night, talk and laugh and make her feel special, then go out with another woman the following night. She tried very hard to hate Sam for that betrayal, but her body couldn’t resist the allure of his magnificent physique. It was like her mind was telling her to run but her feet were…not just standing still but wrapping themselves around Sam’s waist while her mouth kissed him with all the longing and need pent up for years.
Sam stepped in and gave her the courage to follow her dream. And that led to one incredible night in his bed. A night Sam was unwilling to allow being a one night stand. Getting Chloe to the altar though was going to be his biggest challenge because she was afraid of him for reasons she refused to discuss. He would win though, and he’d show her a love as big as the Texas sky. She just had to trust herself enough to let that love into her heart.

For Laci, the impression Sal left at the wedding had made him impossible to forget. But now he was pursuing Laci with all the charm and sex appeal he had at his disposal, which was considerable.

All that is left is her new dream of enfolding herself within the arms of a forbidden man.
Kallista couldn’t believe what Hector Christophe was suggesting. He wanted to marry her? But they barely knew each other! They’d exchanged possibly three or four sentences over the past several years, and now he was suggesting that they marry to save her father’s business. Only Hector had the resources, but Kallista’s father wouldn’t accept help from anyone but family. Hector’s solution? Become part of Kallista’s family.
She didn’t understand him – he was kind and considerate one moment, then grouchy and insulting the next. So how could his touch send sparks of electricity through her body? Why does his kiss make her forget everything? How could she fall in love with such a mercurial man?
Hector knew he didn’t deserve Kallista. She was sweet and pure, intelligent and witty. He’d grown up an orphan, survived on the streets by stealing for his next meal and slept in places others had abandoned. If it weren’t for Kallista’s father, he might still be stealing but the man had picked Hector up and cleaned him up, given him hope and urged him to become something. Now he had the power and wealth to pay her father back but the only way he could do that was by marrying his daughter.
Falling in love with Kallista had been the last thing he’d wanted to do. But she got under his skin, wove through his defenses and he’d been no match for her smile or kindness.
