Games Without Rules

Jake Carlyle and Meredith Ellsworth both hedge their bets on whether their marriage is based on convenience or love. They quickly learn that games played in the boardroom can spill over into the bedroom, and that trust is as important to a good marriage as the undeniable passion between them.

Right Here in River City

To make things worse, the local police chief seems intent on making her life as miserable as possible.

With his only patrolman out sick and his teen-aged niece still grieving over her parents' deaths, Merle Braddock has no time for a city girl who can't even keep her car in running condition. He tries to avoid the dangerously attractive stranger, but a stray dog, a burned-out rock star and a thunderstorm conspire to ignite a passionate love between them that changes everything.
