"Man in Control" by Diana Palmer
Ever since DEA agent Alexander Cobb had given Jodie Clayburn a Texas-size brush-off, they'd been sworn enemies. But eight years later, an undercover operation brought them back together again. This cynical Long, Tall Texan couldn't believe the baby-faced schoolgirl was now an understated beauty who electrified his senses and his heart. Or that she'd help him crack the drug-smuggling case that threatened all of Jacobsville. Tantalized to the core, Alexander would risk everything to possess -- and protect -- the untouched young woman. This fearless secret agent always got his man -- or in this case, woman. But this time, would the man in control get caught in his own web of danger . . . and desire?
"Thorn's Challenge" by Brenda Jackson
Thorn Westmoreland was not enough to convince Tara Matthews to risk her heart in love again . . . or was it? The beautiful pediatrician and the hard-riding motorcycle tycoon mixed like oil and water. Why, then, couldn't Tara burn the sexy racer from her head or the memory of his passionate caresses from her body? Thorn had wanted Tara since the day they'd met. He'd planned to seduce the prickly lady doctor and indulge in a no-commitment-required affair. But before he could savor the success of his sultry seduction she'd turned the tables on him. Now instead of working her out of his system, he was striving to win her love!
