"A Man of Means" by Diana Palmer
From the moment powerfully seductive Rey Hart first set eyes on Meredith Johns, he became mesmerized by the lovely young woman. For not only did Meredith stir his jaded soul with her tempting innocence, he discovered she was a top-notch biscuit maker! However, installing the beleaguered Meredith on the Hart ranch as his coveted cook was a cinch compared to breaking the enchanting spell she had cast over this Long, Tall Texan's heart. Now, the hot-tempered cattleman's plan to preserve his bachelorhood was on the verge of backfiring -- big time -- because one intoxicating kiss would never be enough to satisfy Rey's intense craving for his mysterious housemate. Against all odds, could their tenuous union survive his stubborn pride -- and her perilous past?
"Texas Hero" by Merline Lovelace
Talk about reinventing himself! Once Jack Carstairs had nearly been drummed out of the Omega Agency -- all for falling for the beautiful and powerful woman he'd been assigned to protect. Now the crackerjack agent was back, protecting that same woman -- and getting ready to move in for the kill. Or to prevent the kill, as the case might be. And it was. For Jack's current assignment was to protect lovely Ellie Alazar -- historian extraordinaire, whose doubts about the heroes of the Alamo were evidently not sitting well with whoever was taking potshots at her. Once Ellie had been Jack's whole world. Now she was targeted for rewriting the past, and Jack couldn't help but wonder: Could she also rewrite their past -- only this time, with a happy ending?
