The Impossible Texan
ISBN: 0804119643

Ivy Books. 2001

The War Between the States might be over,
but their battle is just beginning. . . .

Bold and strikingly beautiful, Marlena Maxwell hates to lose. She also dislikes playing the part of a Southern belle, especially when she would rather run her father's reelection bid for Senate. That dream vanishes with the arrival of Tyler Hamilton III, a Harvard-educated Boston blue blood hired to rejuvenate her father's campaign. Now a slighted Lena plans to teach this Yankee a thing or two about Texas politics.

Tyler Hamilton plays to win, and he has come to the South prepared for a fight. What he doesn't expect is that his primary opponent would be the intriguing Miss Maxwell. He will sacrifice his honor for a campaign tainted by slander and scandal--but can he risk losing his heart to a most impossible lady?

The Impossible Bride
ISBN: 0804119651

Ivy Books. 2002

He made a promise she couldn’t refuse.
She became a bride he couldn’t resist.

To start a new life, Deborah Edgerton takes a job far from the wagging tongues of Austin, Texas, where everyone is aware of her scandalous past. But soon after stepping off the train in Galveston, Deborah is shocked to discover that the “position” she is expected to fill is that of wife—to a man desperate enough to deceive a woman into becoming his bride.

A ruggedly handsome man who defies convention, Patrick O’Connor promised his young son a new mother by his sixth birthday—and marrying Deborah was part of the plan. Falling in love with her was not. When business calls Patrick away from home, he decides to bring his new wife and son with him on the adventure of a lifetime—knowing full well that it may be his only chance to persuade his reluctant wife that he is her one true love . . .
