I envisioned THE LOCKHARTS OF TEXAS, a series about four orphaned sisters who have grown up to be strong, fiercely independent Texas women, as the female answer to the original McCabe men.
Book 1 of 4
A NIGHT WORTH REMEMBERING Originally published as: THE BRIDE SAID, “I DID?”
Dani Lockhart had always fantasized about her wedding day... walking down the aisle and giving her hand in marriage to the man of her dreams—just not to her enemy, Beau Chamberlain! But apparently that s exactly what she did...and couldn't remember.
Sure Beau was movie-star handsome and lived by a value system that would stand the test of time. From work to lovemaking and everything in between, he followed the all-or-nothing rule. And he intended to find out exactly how his name and Dani s ended up on a marriage license—and just how Dani could be expecting his child!
THE SEVEN YEAR PROPOSAL Originally published as: THE BRIDE SAID, “FINALLY!”
It had taken Jake Remington seven years to propose to Jenna Lockhart, but who was counting? Theirs had been puppy love when they were kids, pure and sweet. But tragedy had shattered their perfection. Now Jake was all man and determined to have his wedding night with Jenna.
Except Jenna was nobody's fool. Jake wanted something only she could give him. And while it required rock-solid willpower to ignore Jake's masculine appeal and million-dollar courtship, it was darn near impossible to deny his offer of marriage. Would Jenna finally become Mrs. Jake Remington by default... ?
THE DAD NEXT DOOR Originally published as: THE BRIDE SAID, SURPRISE!"
Meg had always been the dependable "big" sister, rearing her kin since she was a girl herself. But one reckless night she had abandoned duty and responsibility and surrendered herself to the passion Luke Carrigan offered. She became a woman in his bed...a mother in nine months.
Now the man Meg had tried desperately to forget was still sexy, single and only a stone's throw away from her...from their secret son. It seemed so easy to become one with Luke again, forever. But would Meg's surprise send Luke packing?
THE LAST VIRGIN IN TEXAS Originally published as: THE VIRGIN BRIDE SAID, "WOW!"
Kelsey Lockhart had been the black sheep "baby" sister of the family since forever. Fickle, stubbornly single...the only virgin in the great state of Texas, she was sure! But she'd never needed a man—till now.
The only way to hold on to the family homestead was to partner with Brady Anderson—in business and in bed. The contracts, the "I do's," the seduction were easy...except Kelsey chickened out before she closed the conjugal deal.
Brady admired his new "wife's" determination, loved her sass and the fact that she was full of surprises—except for one. Kelsey's innocence was not part of the bargain. And a day of reckoning was coming....
