Reba Farrall was lost—until a kindly old gentleman took her under his wing and helped heal her shattered spirit. Now her dearest friend is gone, leaving her with a doubting, broken heart...and half-interest in a California gem mine. But Chance Walker has burst into Reba's life—a daring adventurer who believes in nothing except the priceless uncut stones for which he searches the Earth. In the blistering heat of Death Valley—in the intoxicating presence of a jewel more exquisite than any he has ever seen—Chance must confront a dire peril that stalks the sad and sensuous beauty. For only he can save Reba Farrall from harm—and only she can teach him how to love.

Guilty as sin? Had she gone mad? Molly Harris had woken at the break of dawn lying on the kitchen floor, clutching a bloody knife with no memory of how she'd gotten there. Now Detective John Harlan was at her door, and he was looking for answers. Compelling, mysterious, John was like no man she'd ever known—there was something haunting behind those dark glasses…. The two of them had been brought together by the murder of Molly's parents, and now the death of her ex-maid. As suspicion wrapped around her, so did John—tailing her every move. Could he see through the darkness and discover whether this fragile lady was a cold-blooded killer or a victim of circumstance?

Britain's royals are the official face of the state and the center of a worldwide media circus. This entertaining Rough Guide to the Royals explores the paradox of one of the world's oldest monarchies. It casts a quizzical eye over the current royal family, from former Olympic horse rider Anne and industry ambassador Andrew to current favorites William and Kate. It answers such burning questions as what they do, where they get their money from, how fundamentally British are they, and just who is twelfth in the line to the throne. (One-year-old Savannah Phillips is the answer.) This book looks at the most extravagant royal ceremonies and the most controversial figures, from wife-murderer Henry VIII to the scandalous Caroline of Brunswick (who was banned from her husband's coronation but turned up anyway). The best and the worst monarchs are reassessed, with investigations into how the likes of alleged nephew-killer and hunchback Richard III achieved their villainous reputations. The image of the monarchy is also examined-whether it's in commemorative ceramics, respectful movies such as The King's Speech, or more critical fare.

As a southern belle, Georgette has certain standards she must maintain. But when Dylan walks into the ballroom, all of her southern manners and poise are unable to hold up under his heated stare. She can’t believe a Yankee could break through her walls so completely, but she must maintain her distance. She has goals of her own and she can’t let some man, no matter how delicious he might be, interfere with those goals. Dylan can’t believe that the lovely lady is even trying to ignore her passionate side. She is sensual and funny, intelligent and passionate. And when they touch, they set each other on fire. So why is she running away from such a perfect union?
