~~~~~~Barbara Taylor Bradford~~~~

Voice of the Heart:
  Barbara Taylor Bradford draws us into a world of a strong and powerful woman who made her

choices...then was left to live with them. Moving from the stages of London to the bright lights of Hollywood, this is a richly

detailed and deeply emotional novel that comes straight from Barbara Taylor Bradford's heart to yours.
-- OR --
The Women in His Life:  He is Maximilian West -- billionaire tycoon and corporate raider extraordinaire. He is a figure of almost mythical power

an enigma to all who know him. But when his world is suddenly shattered, Maxim must make peace with his turbulent past and

begin to understand the remarkable women who have loved and protected him. From the streets of London to the suites of

New York, from the rise of Nazi Germany to the fall of the Berlin Wall, THE WOMEN IN HIS LIFE takes us on an

unforgettable journey of survival, secrets, love and redemption that mesmerizes from first page to last.

~~~~~Jude Deveraux~~~~~~

The Enchanted Land:  For beautiful Morgan Wakefield, that land lay west of the bluegrass splendor of her Kentucky

home...and within the powerful embrace of Seth Colter--the handsom rancher with whom she had struck a bargain that

would change her life. Beneath the star-studded New Mexico skies Colter awakened in Morgan a womans passion, stoking the

sensuous fires of a bold tempestuous romance. Though fate wauld make them enemies, theirs was a love that would endure,

never to be forsaken.

~~~~OR ~~~~

The Taming: England's most valiant knights paid court to wealthy Liana Neville, but only

the infamous warrior Rogan Peregrine made no secret of his powerful desires. His very caress melted Liana into liquid fire, and

she vowed to capture this manificent, wild man. Boldly the delicate beauty gave him her hand -- and Britain's richest dower.

Yet he was bound to a bitter feud: for love betrayed, brothers killed, and ancestral land usurped. In Rogan's war-ravaged

castle, Liana would lay her tender seige...to redeem his embattled spirit and win his untamed heart!



The Temptation:
Temperance is the heroine we've been waiting for. The descendent of Jane Austen's women, she is smart, passionate,

liberated, and true to her own ideals. While at the denouement of most stories the heroine melts into a slushy pile of self-

contradictions, Deveraux's character stands strong in her convictions and wins the respect of the readers, if not her fellow

characters. Just like the readers, romance heroines are securing the man, the fortune, and the good ending through the

quality of their characters, and not by the leverage of their charms. Temperance is the hero that we all want to be, and Jude

Deveraux's work is an entertaining medium for inspiration.

Twin of Fire: While dreaming of practicing medicine, Blair falls in love with her placid sister's fianceé, himself a

doctor. Blair's impetuous spirit has won her a medical degree in a man's world--and captured Lee Westfield's heart. But even as

the couple's ardor grows, there are nights when Lee disappears only to return exhausted, haunted. His silence imperils their

love, but the truth would imperil her life.
~~~~Judith McNaught~~~~~
Tender Triumph: On Friday, a sensuous stranger entered Katie's life. By Sunday, her world would never be the same...Stunning

Katie Connelly submerged her painful past in a promising career, an elegant apartment, and men she could keep at a distance.

Yet something vital was missing from her life -- until she met proud, rugged Ramon Galverra. With his urbane charm and his

passionate nature, he gave her a love she had never known. In his arms, she came fully alive to his every touch. Still she was

afraid to surrender her heart to this strong, willful, secretive man -- a man from a different world, a man with a bold,

uncertain future...New York Times bestselling author Judith McNaught captures the thrill of a once-in-a-lifetime passion in

this tender and spellbinding novel.

~~~~~~~~Nora Roberts~~~~~~~~~~

Birthright: When five-thousand-year-old human bones are found at a construction site in

the small town of Woodsboro, the news draws archaeologist Callie Dunbrook out of her sabbatical and into a whirlwind of

adventure, danger, and romance. While overseeing the dig, she must try to make sense of a cloud of death and misfortune

that hangs over the project-fueling rumors that the site is cursed. And she must cope with the presence of her irritating-but

irresistible-ex-husband, Jake. Furthermore, when a stranger claims to know a secret about her privileged Boston childhood,

she is forced to question her own past as well. A rich, thrilling, suspenseful tale, Birthright follows an inspiring heroine, an

intriguing hero, and a cast of fascinating characters whose intertwined lives remind us that there is much more going on

under the surface than meets the eye.

Homeport: The Maine air is bitterly cold when Dr. Miranda Jones arrives at the family home after a bust lecture

tour. But her blood turns to ice when she suddenly feels the knife against her throat.
The unseen assailant steals her bags, slashes her tires, and disappears. Deeply shaken, Miranda is determined to put the

experience behind her. Distraction comes when she is summoned to Italy - to verify the authenticity of a Renaissance bronze

of a Medici courtesan known as The Dark Lady. But instead of cementing Miranda's reputation as the leading expert in the

ield, the job nearly destroys it when her professional judgement is called into question. Emotionally estranged from her mother,

with a brother immersed in his own troubles, Miranda has no one to turn to ... except Ryan Boldari, a seductive art thief

whose own agenda forces them into a reluctant alliance.
Now it becomes clear that the incident in Maine was not a simple mugging - and that The Dark Lady mat possess as many

secrets as it's beautiful namesake once did. For Miranda, forced heavily to rely on herself - and a partner who offers her both

unnerving suspicion and intoxicating passion - the only way home is filled with deception, treachery, and a danger that

threatens them all.

Irish Hearts: THis contains two complete novels and form the first and second story in Nora's Irish Trilogy. The

first story is Irish Thoroughbred and is the author's very first book. It's the story of Adelia Cunnane...the Irish hothead that

squares off against Travis Grant, the powerful and rich horse-racing magnate. Watch the sparks fly! The second story is IRISH

ROSE and it's the tale of her cousin, Erin McKinnon, also from Ireland. She agrees to come to the United States to keep up

the books for Burke Logan, another powerful and rich horse stable owner. However, Erin is concerned that with the heat

between the two of them, her employer might want her duties to include more than just bookkeeping. Both stories are

enjoyable and well worth the read.

This time Love: Joy Anderson was young and trusting when she served as a guide for aspiring journalist Gabe Venture.

Surrounded by the staggering natural beauty of New Mexico's Lost River Cave, Joy gave herself freely to the most

extraordinary man she had ever known. But even the passion they shared could not hold him -- and Gabe left Joy with a

broken heart . . . and, nine months later, with a cherished, if painful, reminder of their lost love. Now Joy is a respected

doctor with no room in her life for shattered dreams. And Gabe has returned at the pinnacle of his profession, longing to fill

the inner emptiness that has rendered his achievements bittersweet. Joy, however, has nursed her wounds and moved on; he

has arrived far too late to be welcomed back into her heart. But while there is still magic beneath the rolling New Mexican

desert -- in the breathtaking world of mystery and wonder where the miracle was born -- can it ever be too late for love?

The Gamble: Tough and tender, sweet and sassy, here is a story of honesty and humour for anyone

who has ever lived and loved. Scott Gandy has always been a gambling man, relying on his lazy Southern charm to smooth a way

out of difficult situations. Hoping to make his fortune, he opens a saloon in Proffitt, Kansas. But he soon becomes a target

of the prohibition movement, led by the owner of the hat shop next door to his establishment -- the enchanting yet volatile

Agatha Downing. The saloon keeper and the prim and proper milliner are hopeless adversaries... until the innocence of a child

opens their eyes and hearts to each other.

Twice Loved: This story starts off in 1837. It's about Laura, Rye & Dan who were childhood friends & grew closer

into adulthood. Laura & Rye had a magical connection, married and soon after he left on a whaling ship to try & earn their

fortune. However, fate stepped in, his ship went down, and as everyone assumed, with him on it. 5 years later, with a son Rye

never knew, married to his best friend Dan who saw her through the toughest times in her life, Rye returns and walks into a

house that was once his & a woman he thought was still his wife. Not to mention the son he didn't know existed, but who's

now calling another man papa. Rye's returned, but lost everything, including his house & it's belongings as he finds out that

legally Laura's married to Dan. But with a love so very strong, Laura & Rye begin a journey, not knowing where it will leave all 4

of them & no one wanting to hurt the other.- member review Theresa W.

Vows: Tom Jeffcoat thought he had sealed his fate when he rode into town and accidentally mistook Emily for

a boy while she was working at her father's livery in britches. The two fought from the instant they met, especially when she

found out he was opening a competing stable across the street. Somewhere between battles they start to see each other for

who they really are and grow attracted to each other, despite being attached to others. It soon becomes undeniable, and the

author doesn't drag it out with a frustrating lack of communication between them. Spencer is a master at the slow, simmering

tension and build-up, and it was a delight to read. Alongside the main plot is the side romance between Emily's father and his

first true love, together again after being apart for over twenty years, and their story is just as engaging and interesting as the

central one.
