if Drake Kincaid had placed such an advertisement in every paper in the
country, he couldn’t have found a better candidate than Pearl
is fine with him. After all, his parents’ will stipulates only that he
marry by his thirtieth birthday, not that he marry well. And no
one--including Drake’s grandfather, the man determined to hold him to
the ridiculous provision--could possibly think tall, bossy Pearl with
her ragtag siblings and questionable “cousin” Belle will make a good
wife. Until Drake realizes that in her startling violet eyes he sees a
beautiful woman with a generous soul...
Their life together may not have started with hearts and flowers, but Drake and Pearl will soon learn that real love--with a breathtaking dose of passion--will make their marriage a true romance.

wants only the simple things: a home, a family, and a place in the
community where she can
set a good example and lead a moral life. She launched her plan by
a school for the poorest children in the county. When she discovers
that the terms of her
mother’s will have made her the owner of a saloon, she is surprised.
Even more shocking,
is Sarah’s reaction to Nate. He is the son of her mother’s husband and
Nathaniel Batholomew, but he uses Barton in his con game with the
Kincaids and their neighbors. Tall, dark and unmistakably tempting,
Nate is a gambler bytrade--and hardly
an upright citizen.
Taking in a trio of starving orphans on the run from an unsavory gang is hardly the way to conduct a romance. Sarah and Nate soon learn that the only proper thing to do under the circumstances is to let love take them where it will, and get ready for a passionate adventure. Sarah vows to reform him and finds him an eager pupil. Reforming a rogue is easier said than done and Sarah and Nate learn a great deal about themselves and others in their journey!
