Texas Heat by Fern Michaels (Book 2 of the 4 book series)

Sunbridge---the 250,000-acre spread near Austin, the dream and obsession the late Seth Coleman, the scene of passion and intrigue---now belongs to Moss and Billie's daughter, Maggie. Maggie has invited all the family---and several hundred guests---to a July 4th barbecue to celebrate the new sense of family pride she's determined to forge at Sundbridge. But wherever Colemans and their loved ones gather, they can't help but generate their own special brand of TEXAS HEAT.

I have Slaves of New York by Tama Janowitz.

Meet the denizens of New York City: artists, prostitutes, saints, and seers. All are aspiring toward either fame or oblivion, and hoping for love and acceptance. Instead they find high rents, faithless partners, and dead-end careers. But between the disappointments come snatches of self-awareness, and a strange beauty in their encounters with one another.

October 8, 1871 -- One small spark ignites the entire city of Chicago, sending its residents into panic. But amid the chaos, a case of mistaken identity leads to an unexpected new love.

As the historic fire ignites across town, Kathleen O'Leary finds herself dressed in borrowed diamonds and silk, enjoying a lavish masquerade. The penniless maid has caught the eye of Dylan Francis Kennedy, the rich, handsome gentleman all of high society has been speculating about. The night feels alive with magic... and ripe with promise.

Then fire sweeps through the city, cornering the young lovers with no hope of rescue. Desperate to share their last moments together, Kathleen and Dylan impulsively marry. Incredibly, they survive. Now, as the fire burns down to cold ash, Kathleen must tell Chicago's most eligible bachelor that he has married a fraud.

But the joke's on her. For this gentleman is no gentleman. While Kathleen had hoped to win Dylan's love, he had planned only to capture her heart and steal her fortune. Dylan Kennedy - con artist, gambler and ne'er-do-well � has been unwittingly caught in his own game. Now the real sparks are about to fly.

One Stubborn Texan (Harlequin American Romance Series) Author: Kara Lennox
Ten Million Problems and a Premonition...
The town of Linhart had never seen a sophisticated beauty like Sydney Baines, and Russ Klein suspected that whatever had brought the long-legged detective all the way to the Texas Hill Country couldn't be good. And he was right--years of weaning his mother away from Las Vegas's high rollers would be wasted and her gambling addiction would be back in full swing once Sydney's news about his long-lost inheritance got out.
At first the big-city sleuth didn't believe it. The harder she pushed the stubborn Texan to take the money, the harder he resisted. Could she pass up the finder's fee her family desperately needed so the charming backwoods adventurer could keep his secret? Because it looked as if botching her assignment was the only way she could catch her man...
