I'm going to have to get back to this one. It wasn't what I expected going in, which is okay--I adjusted. I also set it down, though, and haven't got back to it. When I dive back in, I'll post my thoughts.

“Do not push me,” she warned in a shaky voice.

“Och, but I will.” He shifted on his booted feet, pushed his hips harder against hers, until she felt a part of the wall. A part of him. “You lifted a blade to me, Katarina. I’m going to push you hard.”
Kris Kennedy, Claiming Her

“Faintly he smiled, but his voice was hard. “Lass, you do not want what I have.” As if to prove it, he overturned his hand and dragged a calloused thumb roughly across her bottom lip.

All the breath came out of her in a hot rush. “Oh.”

One Heart to Win by Johanna Lindsey
One Heart to Win by Johanna Lindsey
Some young ladies marry for money and social standing, a few lucky ones marry for love, but Tiffany Warren is marrying to end a feud. Honoring her mother's promise, Tiffany reluctantly travels west to meet her estranged father and his enemy's eldest son, rancher Hunter Callahan. Once the Warrens and the Callahans are united by marriage, both clans will stop squabbling over a disputed strip of land.

In the chaos of a train robbery, Tiffany seizes a golden opportunity: By assuming the identity of her father's new housekeeper, she can live with the father she never knew and assess his true character, as well as that of the neighboring cowboy to whom she is betrothed. But, too late, Tiffany discovers that the rivalry between the Warrens and the Callahans has escalated when the Callahans steal the Warrens' housekeeper as soon as she steps off the train!

Now, Tiffany, who is pretending to be Jennifer Fleming, finds herself living in the enemy camp, under the same roof as her fiancé. All too soon she learns her intended is a handsome, sweet talking charmer whom she has to fight off because he can't keep his eyes—or his hands—off Jennifer.

After Tiffany's charade is exposed, she refuses to marry Hunter to end the feud.

As Hunter goes about claiming his rightful bride-to-be, he knows that although he loves two women—proper, elegant Tiffany as well as spunky, passionate Jennifer—he has only one heart to win.

Silver Nights With You by Sawyer Belle
Silver Nights With You, by Sawyer Belle
The town was lawless, the people rough, and nothing west of the Missouri River set the wagon wheels spinning like the glitter of silver and gold. When Lila Cameron stepped off the bullet-riddled stage coach in Gold Hill, NV life never looked so bleak. That is, until her father announced that they would be staying. She took on her new life with pluck, wading through a sea of sin and everything that ever made the west wild, and just when she felt in control, she found herself targeted by three men. One who wanted to wed her. One who wanted to bed her. And one who wanted her dead.

Morgan Kelly wanted a wife and a peaceful life in the shadows of the Sierras. When the young debutante from the east coast swept into his town, he fell instantly. But she made it clear that her affection lie elsewhere and he did his best to let her go. Fate and the devious intentions of other men pushed them together, and there was no going back for either of their hearts. But the way forward was filled with danger.

Against the backdrop of the greatest silver boom in the history of America, Morgan and Lila fight through the perils of early mining, western justice and the fear of hope.

Deception by Kris Kennedy
Deception, by Kris Kennedy
A beautiful silk merchant and a dashing con man join forces in the second scorching medieval romance from Kris Kennedy.

Irishman Kier has a history of staggering successes and one truly awful failure. For years he served as the 'Piper,' enticing wealthy, unscrupulous men into dealings with other wealthy, unscrupulous men. It was a highly lucrative way of life for a man without a conscience, and he was very, very good.

But now, he's on a mission of revenge, and the men who once betrayed him are about to pay. Everything has been put in place, every move scripted in advance, from how he'll lure them, to how he'll hammer the last nail into their coffins. He's planned for everything.

Except the appearance of the woman who can bring the whole thing crashing down around him.

***

Sophia Darnly, daughter of the hanged Judge Darnly, wants the same thing as Kier: the Darnly ledger. Rumored to contain details of the foulest deeds of the richest men in England, it has the potential for extortion on a very grand scale.

Kier needs the ledger. So does Sophia. Neither one is backing down.

It doesn't help that they once were in love.

***

They forge an unwilling alliance. Posing as a wealthy widow and her factor, the duo sets a trap.

But the coals of their rekindled passion burn hotter than either of them could have imagined. And when they discover they, too, are the targets of a deadly deception, the fate of their love, and of England itself, lies in the balance.

So Speaks the Heart by Johanna Lindsey
So Speaks the Heart, by Johanna Lindsey
His violent pride demanded submission.
Her gentle heart demanded love.


His valor offered refuge to a heart which offered Love.

She was born a lady, heiress to rich French estates. But when Rowland of Montville captured her, he saw only a beautiful girl garbed in peasant's rags... a wench to serve his wants.

Though betrayed into bondage, Brigitte de Louroux would never be any man's slave. Yet the fate of an unprotected woman could have been far more cruel than the rough embrace of a warrior lord as fair as Rowland de Montville.

Defenseless against his unbridled passions, she yielded her innocence to the desires he aroused in her heart. And he, who had never known the enchantment of a woman's surrender, found a power in love as mighty as the sword he raised against their enemies.

The Angel and the Prince by Laurel O'Donnell
The Angel and the Prince, by Laurel O'Donnell
Lady Knight
The daughter of a French nobleman, Ryen De Bouries wields a sword and rides a destrier as magnificently as the knights of King Charles VI. In place of glittering ballgowns, she wears shining armor; instead of practicing gentle arts, she battles the Englishmen she despises. Those who whisper her name in fear and awe call her the Angel of Death.

Captive Prince
Bryce Princeton is the dreaded Prince of Darkness, a British lord driven by a desire for conquest and revenge. He leads his vanquishing army into France...only to be captured by a fierce-hearted slip of a woman. Ryen is a maid trained in arms, but an innocent in a contest of passion. So, in the shadows of his prison cell, the sensual nobleman refuses to yield. Instead he woos her with a passion no woman dare trust—nor resist.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge
