An Englishwoman marries a Sicilian-American soldier during World War II and then vanishes from his life in this story of star-crossed love and deadly vendettas
They meet and fall in love in Palermo during World War II. She’s an English nurse, the daughter of a Sussex country doctor. He’s a wounded Sicilian-American soldier. When they marry, Angela Drummond is pregnant, but Steven Falconi will not be with her the day their son is born.
Believing Angela to be the tragic victim of a German bomb, Steven returns to New York to take his place as heir apparent of his Mafia family.

Secrets of a Midnight Moon
For a young teacher in nineteenth century California, every road away from her past leads into the arms of a dangerous man—until she meets the right one.
California, 1858. After being abandoned by her lover and shunned by her family, Anna Jenson decides to make a new start in the rugged wilderness of the California mountains. But before she can reach her destination and begin her new life as a humble schoolteacher, she’s captured by a brooding warrior known only as “Bear.”
Her kidnapping wasn’t entirely random, though. Bear is actually Nicholas Gaspard, the half-Indian son of the rich rancher who hired Anna. He abducted her for what he believes to be a greater cause. Nicholas is a local hero, rescuing abandoned and abused local children, and he wants Anna to educate them. Furious at being tricked, Anna initially resists. But sparks fly between the reluctant teacher and the complex man, revealing a reckless desire that cannot be tamed.
The Lady and the Outlaw
When a Wild West bandit takes an educated young woman hostage, the sparks that fly between them are more dangerous than bullets—“Don’t miss this one!” (Affaire de Coeur, 5 stars).
A recent graduate of Wellesley College, Leslie Powers is on her way out to Arizona Territory. All she knows about the frontier comes from pulp magazines. But she’s about to get a wild education in the way of the West when Ward Cantrell, the leader of the Devil’s Canyon Gang, takes her hostage. With every reason to hate the rakishly handsome rogue, Leslie finds herself falling desperately in love with him.
Ward has good reasons for preying on the Kinkaid family’s Texas and Pacific railroad—reasons that reach back to a secret, former life. He doesn’t normally let emotions get in the way of his work, but could his beautiful captive be spellbinding enough to make him forget his old grudges?
In the heat of the southwest, desire is the kindling for two lost souls—and the flame of passion threatens to consume them both.
Rosie Saladay needs to get married—fast. The young widow needs help to protect her late husband’s ranch, but no decent woman can live alone with a hired hand. With the wealthy Wesley Morris making a play for her land, Rosie needs a husband or she risks losing everything. So she hangs a sign at the local saloon: “Husband wanted. Apply inside. No conjugal rights.”
Delmar Grant is a sucker for a damsel in distress, and even with Rosie’s restrictions on “boots under her bed” stated firmly in black and white, something about the lovely widow’s plea leaves him unable to turn away her proposal of marriage.
Though neither planned on falling in love, passion ignites between the unlikely couple. But their buried secrets—and enemies with both greed and a grudge—threaten to tear them apart. They’ll discover this marriage of convenience may cost them more than they could have ever bargained for.
My heat rose as I listened to the sound that our bodies made, the slap of damp skin on leather, the low humming growl she made in her throat, the scraping of my fingernails clutching the furniture.

Lonely and lost, working in the wings of an English theater, she obsessively recounts the heat and sensuality of the memorable event—a night of unharnessed sexual release and exploration. Feeling ignored by her best friend, Iris, and disconnected from the rest of the world, Moana throws herself into mad nights of forced rapture, pushing away the regret that always overcomes her immediately after.
But Moana and the Ball are linked in ways she is yet to realize, and hints and whispers about the grand fête follow her persistently. When she uncovers a long-hidden secret about Iris’s family in the underbelly of the theater—a story of heaving passion and loss, and the secret birth of a child—the Ball becomes even more irresistible, promising Moana and Iris answers rooted in excitement and pleasure, and offering them a chance to belong to the grandest gala of them all.
