This book contains three (not two) enchanting tales of romantic suspense that are just perfect for light summer reading.
In the first entry by Heather Graham, Kit Delaney returns to the home she was born in and the family she is estranged from after the untimely death of her beloved father. There she begins a relationship with David Moore an enigmatic member of the household whose purposes are not entirely clear to her. She also engenders the enmity of at least one of her relatives -all of whom are afraid she will cheat them out of their rightful inheritance. The question is how far they will go to get Kit out of the picture and wether David can or will come to her rescue.
In "Shelter Island" the second tale, by Carla Neggers, Dr.Antonia Winter believes she is being stalked. She is afraid to ask for help because of the repercussions that a false alarm might have on her medical career and on the political aspirations of her new suitor, Hank Callahan. When she secretly retreats to an old cottage, belonging to a friend, on Shelter Island she is followed by Hank and by her stalker. Who will get to her first?
The last story, bySharon Sala, "Capsized",is myfavorite. Kelly Sloan is a DEA agent in an undercover operation that goes sour when a released prisoner whom she put away recognizes her. After three days of torture she manages to escape and swim to shore in Texas where she is rescued by Quinn McCord, a Texas Ranger with problems of his own. Together they must outwit the drug kingpin who has offered a two million dollar reward for Kelly's murder, in time for Kelly to testify against Dominic Ortega. The sparks fly in this tale of love and revenge.
Heather Graham kicks off the anthology with "Bougainvillea." Following her father's death, Kit is drawn back to her family home. What appears to be a chance meeting with David Moore, a man from her past, quickly becomes much more.
In "Shelter Island" by Carla Neggers, Dr. Antonia Winter is an independent woman. When she suspects she has a stalker, she travels to secluded Shelter Island so her troubles won't interfere with her boyfriend's shot at the Senate race. But a threatening hurricane sends Hank Callahan after the woman he loves. In "Capsized" by Sharon Sala, DEA agent Kelly Sloan is nearing the end of a dangerous mission in South America when her cover is blown. She escapes her captors after three tortuous days, only to have her boat capsize. A Texas Ranger finds Kelly washed up on shore and promises to keep her secret.
However, the title touts the stories as "three NOVELS in one"; I wouldn't classify them as full blown novels, more like novellas. They were a little short and not as developed as what you would read in a full-blown novel.
