"Sea Gypsy" by Fern Michaels
Cathy Bissette thought she had left everything behind - the publishing job, the glamour of New York, the broken heart - for a quiet three-month vacation at home on the shores of North Carolina. But the moment Jared Parsons sailed the Sea Gypsy into Pamlico Sound, she knew her quiet refuge was ruined. She wasn't sure what bothered her more about this stranger - his arrogant attitude or the passions he inspired. Was Cathy running away again, or was she heading straight into the arms of the man she hated to love?
"Golden Lasso" by Fern Michaels
After Jan Warren inherited a ranch in the beautiful Arizona desert, she put everything she could into making a success of Rancho Arroyo. But managing a resort had its problems from the start - problems that were not at all helped by the commanding presence of Derek Bannon. Owner of the Golden Lasso, the neighboring vacation hot spot, Derek was determined to buy Jan out. And he wasn't taking no for an answer. Somehow this business venture had become intensely personal and the stakes were dangerously high - her trust and her heart.
