THE TEMPTRESS BRIDE - Kassandra whirled to face the arrogant military man she’d hoped never to see again, remembering all too clearly his kisses that lingered like molten honey on her lips. To admit it was her innocence he’d stolen in a moment of blazing passion would ruin her father’s diplomatic career and forever destroy her reputation.
Stefan nearly shouted in triumph. He’d searched throughout Vienna for the beguiling tavern wench who had aroused him past endurance, and here she stood like a shimmering goddess...no tavern wench but a lady of the Imperial court. He must have her--he would have her!—if only to safeguard her honor by making her his wife.
THE IMPOSTOR BRIDE - With a heavy heart, spirited but low-born Susanna Guthrie agrees to honor the deathbed request of the wealthy young woman who rescued her from a life of poverty. Masquerading as her benefactress, Susanna travels to the Virginia colonies to take the dying heiress’ place as head of the sprawling tobacco plantation Briarwood…and to “marry wisely.”
Once, she would have welcomed the attentions of handsome Adam Thornton. But now, consorting with a “hired hand” is unthinkable—though the raw, sensual power of the rugged plantation manager leaves Susanna breathless. Driven by a desire for vengeance, Adam is ruthlessly determined to win both Briarwood and its beautiful new mistress—only to be undone by a soul inflamed with passion…and a heart ennobled by love.
