The Case of the Mesmerizing Boss (originally published in Silhouette Desire #702 01/92) He had been a Texas Ranger, a lawman extraordinaire. Now Dane Lassiter headed up a group of crack Houston private detectives. Jilted by a string of women, he existed only for his work — until his night secretary, Tess Merriwether, narrowly escaped a killer's bullet and Dane appointed himself her protector. Now his toughest challenge was convincing the stubborn, innocent beauty to accept the safety of his arms.
The Case of the Confirmed Bachelor (originally published in Silhouette Desire #715 1992) Nick Reed was convinced that he'd be a bachelor — and happily so — until he drew his last breath. What good would a wife do him? He had enough excitement and fulfillment working as a private eye. He didn't need any unnecessary, umm . . . attachments. But Tabitha Harvey had fallen for Nick. Hard. And she'd do whatever it took to make this confirmed bachelor give up his single status — forever!
