Beautiful Morgan Prescott has everything she’s ever wanted—except happiness. Determined to make her own way in the world despite her family’s wealthy influence, she answers a “Brides Wanted” ad and leaves New York City’s high society life for the wild Washington Territory, a continent away. Though she has no practical skills, she’s determined to learn how to survive.
Luke Kincaid is a private investigator, working undercover as a logging camp foreman to stop the saboteurs who are destroying the progress of the Union Pacific Railroad. Marriage to Morgan is part of his assumed identity, but he finds himself longing for much more—a love he can neither accept, nor return. He’s honor bound to another woman, Lucy, his dearest childhood friend—but Lucy has a wasting disease that has left her bedridden and near death.
When Morgan is nearly killed in a blaze that has been purposely set, Luke vows to find the man responsible and make him pay—with his life. But Luke knows that he must return to Lucy, as her time grows short.
Can Luke and Morgan ever find their happiness together? They must put all their faith in the future, with A LOVE SO STRONG.
To escape an arranged marriage, beautiful, proper Cynthia Harrington from East Texas impulsively marries Ricardo Romero, a striking, sensual Spaniard who ranches on the far western edge of the Texas frontier. She naïvely steps into a hotbed of anger, rivalry, and strong wills. She struggles to gain a foothold in the hostile household and foreign ranch community, determined to make a place for herself—but will she also find a way to make her husband love her?
By marrying an “outsider,” Ricardo brings down the wrath of his mother, Felicitas, on his unsuspecting bride. Cynthia must also contend with beautiful Starr Hidalgo, a wealthy, jealous young neighbor, who has always believed she and Ricardo would be married.
When the Texas Rangers arrive looking for a killer, Cynthia daringly manages to save Ricardo’s mother in a confrontation with the wanted man. Ricardo’s bride has more grit and spunk than he ever imagined—but has she been pushed too far to stay on at the ranch with him? Can he convince her that they both want—and need—the same thing? Cynthia is in search of nothing more than what she’s told Ricardo from the very beginning—a loving home and husband. But is it already too late for them? With a rough beginning to their married lives, can their love survive—and give them all their hopes and dreams?
