Summary

Three love stories set against great American landscapes in an acclaimed series by a New York Times–bestselling author and “romance legend” (Publishers Weekly).  With more than 300 million books sold, Janet Dailey is an icon of American fiction. In a romantic tour of the United States, the first lady of romance wrote fifty novels, one set in each state. The three enchanting installments of the Americana Series included in this collection tell heart-soaring tales of love and desire in Alabama, Alaska, and Arizona.  Dangerous Masquerade: Having spent her life in her cousin’s shadow, shy secretary Laurie Evans steps into the spotlight. She bears a strong resemblance to her movie-star cousin, LaRaine, and agrees to masquerade as the spoiled actress on a trip to Alabama to meet LaRaine’s future in-laws. But when her cousin’s fiancé, Rian Montgomery, arrives unexpectedly, Laurie can’t help but desire the millionaire hotel magnate—and a dazzling romance that’s no charade.  Northern Magic: Shannon Hayes is thrilled to reunite with her fiancé, Rick, in Anchorage, Alaska, after a long separation, but when she arrives he’s disappeared. Desperate to find him, Shannon asks Rick’s employer, Cody, for help, and soon his comforting, reliable presence makes her wonder if she’s giving her heart to the wrong man.  Sonora Sundown: Lost in the desert, Brandy Ames is alone, frightened, and desperate for help. She’s relieved when she stumbles upon the campfire of drop-dead gorgeous cattle thief Jim Corbett. Rugged and mysterious, Jim is a man of few words, but Brandy is happy to saddle up next to him and ride out a sandstorm that forces them to take shelter for the night—in each other’s arms.

    After her stagecoach collides with the Marquis of Stade’s speeding curricle on the road to Blackwater, slender golden-haired beauty, Gretna Hayden, is somewhat at the mercy of this cynical-lipped yet handsome Nobleman.
     
    Knowing this and concerned for Gretna’s reputation, her companion and chaperone, the rotund Mrs. Merryweather, passes her off as her niece when they arrive at his magnificent nearby Stately home.
     
    Sadly the Marquis seems to take her lowly status as an excuse to proposition her in way that he would never dream of treating a Society lady.
     
    Little does he suspect that Gretna is the daughter of just such a lady and one with a scandalous past and illustrious connections of her own – namely with The Prince of Wales’s consort, Maria Fitzherbert, or Aunt Maria to Gretna!
     
    The gossip-mongers in the late 1780s were all speculating that the Prince and Mrs. Fitzherbert had been secretly married and purely by chance Gretna found that it was indeed true.
     
    Gretna hates the steely-eyed and supercilious Marquis with his sarcasm and curled lip, especially when he has the temerity to suggest that Mrs. Fitzherbert’s residence in the smartest part of London is an unsuitable place for a young girl like Gretna to be staying.
     
    But then his arrogance pales into insignificance compared to the vile predatory Lord Wroxhall, who pursues Gretna mercilessly until finally love comes out of hiding for the Marquis and his golden-haired Gretna.

    An obscure Prussian princess is transformed into Catherine the Great, the longest-ruling female leader of Russia    The Prussian-born daughter of a minor princeling, Augusta Fredericka dreams of being a queen. When, one snowy December night in 1743, she’s summoned to Russia to wed Grand Duke Peter Romanov, she believes all her fantasies are about to come true. But the heir to the Russian throne is not the man Augusta expects. Stunted and deformed, her husband-to-be is an impotent half-wit who plays with dolls, hates women, and can’t bear to be touched. Once they wed, obtaining an heir becomes the driving obsession of Peter’s aunt, the scheming, powerful Empress Elizabeth, who hires a handsome nobleman to seduce the virgin grand duchess. It works: Catherine bears a son, Paul, who is taken from her, leaving her isolated and vulnerable.   Catherine finds fulfillment in a succession of lovers, but lives in constant fear for her life. Her most treacherous enemy is her own husband, who plots to have her arrested for treason. Set against the turbulent background of czarist Russia, Evelyn Anthony’s novel weaves a spellbinding tale of passion and ambition and one woman’s rise to power as empress of her adopted country.  Rebel Princess is the 1st book in the Romanov Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
