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 fianc,̌ 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 fianc,̌ 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.
