Summary

A clean, sweet historical romance set in 1873. 
Rancher’s daughter Sarah Wilerson has been engaged to Ethan Paulson, a Clear Creek hotel manager, for two years. Although Ethan is a nice man, Sarah has postponed the wedding twice, unsure whether she can live and work in the family’s hotel—alongside an overbearing mother–in–law. 
West Point–trained Captain Marcus Brenner was stationed at Fort Wallace in western Kansas, and wounded in a skirmish with the Cheyenne Indians. He has been discharged from the army and recuperating at his uncle’s ranch in Ellsworth County, Kansas. There he meets Sarah, who helps him recover from his wounds and nightmares. Marcus falls in love with Sarah, but refuses to consider marrying her because of her engagement to another man. And, due to his battle injuries, he may not be able to give Sarah the houseful of children for which she yearns for either. 
Unable to bring herself to go through with her wedding on the third date set, Sarah leaves her groom at the altar and rides after Marcus, determined to convince him to marry her. 
Fate throws a challenge in their path when they suddenly become guardians of six young children. Can Sarah convince Marcus to become the father the children need, and the husband she wants?

    The beautiful young Mimosa Shenson is left alone in the world, penniless and stranded in Tunisia after her father dies from a snakebite while visiting the partially excavated archaeological site of Thuburbo Maius. Whatever can she do? The answer appears to be in a chance reading of a local newspaper reporting that her cousin Minerva, who has been living a grand Villa near Tunis, but has suddenly disappeared and is feared kidnapped for her large fortune. Feigning amnesia Mimosa arrives at her cousin’s Villa and, as she hopes, is instantly taken for the missing Minerva and, as the two girls are very alike, even the servants believe her to be Minerva. Unexpectedly the Duke of Alrock, a handsome Englishman, comes to call at the Villa and he too mistakes Mimosa for Minerva. Quickly Mimosa finds that her deceit is bringing her complications in the form of a sinister Frenchman who attempts to blackmail her about her cousin’s illicit affaire de coeur with a married French Count, which she knows nothing about. Then the Duke persuades her to accompany him on a visit to the magnificent ruins of Thuburbo Maius and there they are kidnapped by a gang of ruffians just as the sun is about to set. It seems that Mimosa is about to lose her life, just as she is beginning to lose her heart to the dashing Duke of Alrock.

    Miss Jane Whittington's hopes have been dashed. She'd always imagined herself marrying someone daring, adventurous, exciting. Instead, the man her father has betrothed her to is...a fop!

So why does his heated gaze enflame a desire in her that she's never known?

Now that he longs for a simpler, safer lot, he believes he's found his ideal bride in this irresistible beauty. But it will take a special sort of seduction to win Jane's heart. And when the Crown calls him back into service, how can William refuse -- even if it costs him the peace he covets...and the woman he can no longer live without?

    What started as a whim turned into an accidental—and very public—engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season—for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?
     
    Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy—the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé—would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency—a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map.
     
    Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client.
     
    For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.
