Wade Knowlton is a workaholic driven to move forward with his life after a personal tragedy sent him on an eighteen month bender, but his family loyalty has kept him tied to a rural law practice, and a ranching operation that's been skirting the brink of foreclosure for years. When Nicole receives a phone call notifying her of her estranged father's death, she hops a plane for Montana. As his only kin, Nicole seeks an attorney to help her to settle his estate, but losing her I.D. complicates everything, and the delays jeopardize both her job— and her heart. What Nicole seeks in Montana is closure on the past, but what she unexpectedly finds is a new future … and love with a smooth talkin' cowboy.

Elizabeth Bartram is a young woman with many secrets… As a Quaker and the daughter of an internationally renown botanist, Elizabeth has experienced greater freedom and fewer intellectual restraints than most Colonial women. Even though she has been instrumental in her father's success, she knows she will never be acknowledged as an equal amongst the men of science, and must always remain relegated to the shadows. When this Scottish astronomer-cum-explorer and American botanist are thrown together on a scientific mission in the midst of an intercontinental war, their purpose may be scientific exploration .…but their greatest discovery is love.

Slow Hand by Victoria Vane
“She let her gaze travel over him in a slow appreciation of his tall, lean, muscular frame. She guessed he stood at least six-three in his boots. “I suppose not,” she said. “It would be only prime grass-fed beef and Idaho potatoes for you.”
He crossed his arms over his broad chest and leaned on the door frame studying her. “Miz Powell, if I didn’t know better, I’d think you were undressing me with those pretty blue-green eyes of yours.”
A guilty flush infused her face but she refused to give him the advantage. She opted for a strong offense instead. “So what if I was? Weren’t you quite fixated on my ass at Denver airport?”
He raised a sandy eyebrow. “You noticed that, eh?” His confession came with a shameless grin attached.
She jutted her chin. “Quid pro quo, Counselor. What do you say to that?”
He approached her slowly, the smile in his eyes transforming in a blink to a wicked gleam. A gleam that promised very bad things. His reply sent a warning signal to every nerve in her body. “I’d say

“What a woman wants above all things, Nick, is to believe herself the most important consideration in the world, the center of a man's universe.”
Victoria Vane, A Breach of Promise

“I used to watch the stallions leaping the mares."
"You what!" Hew almost choked.
"Well, how else is a girl with no mother supposed to get any education? Although I doubt Mama would have told me very much. So there's really no reason to be timid, Hew. I already know all about the mating process. And to the best of my knowledge, the stallions never 'ignored it until it went away.”
Victoria Vane, The Virgin Huntress

“A magnificent cad, you mean. He's positively gaping at your bosom, Lyddie!" Mariah said in a scandalized whisper. "I swear he's undressing you with his eyes!"

"There can be no doubt you have his attention now," Mariah giggled.”

“from THE DEVIL YOU KNOW-

She wanted him too. He could see it in the rapid rise of her breasts. He could smell her budding arousal and would relish bringing her to full bloom. God, how he loved this dance! She had taken the first tentative steps, yet she still fought her desire, refused to give in to it, but he would lead her now. He was a master…and a ruthless bastard.”
Victoria Vane, The Devil You Know

“What a woman wants above all things, Nick, is to believe herself the most important consideration in the world, the center of a man's universe.”
Victoria Vane, A Breach of Promise

“Part of her—a small but defiant part, the part that still remembered her girlhood fantasies—desperately wanted to trust him, but the stronger part remembered how he had thoughtlessly cast her aside. “We can’t always have what we want, Marcus. You must accustom yourself to disappointment.” As I have. The unspoken words hung between them.

Marcus’ mouth twitched. “But there you are wrong, my love. I always get what I want.”

Thank you for visiting Delighted Reader. I'll check with Shari (who is the chief and I an indian at the blog) and see what we have coming up for August or at latest September. I think she has July covered for the most part. I'm the 'historical' (hysterical?) reader so I would be the one to do the review on any of those submissions usually. I've seen your books before and thought that I would like to try them. I think that is very kind that you chose to contact us.
