About this item
RETURN TO SANTA FLORESJenny Cashman longs to escape the refined, rarified air of her exclusive Swiss education. At nineteen, she’s desperate for independence—and to once again see the man she loves. So she sells her belongings, leaves Europe, and heads to Las Vegas. The sight of Steve Jason’s newest palatial hotel and casino thrills Jenny—but not as much as the sight of the man himself. Steve came to her rescue after her father died, paying for her years of expensive schooling. Now she must convince him that she’s old enough to make her own decisions…including about her passion for him.
Steve Jason is a powerful mogul, a man who came from nothing and made a name for himself in the hotel industry before he was thirty years old. He takes great care to keep all emotional involvement with others to a bare minimum—with only one exception. Jenny has always been incredibly important to him. But how can he keep her safe when she seems oblivious to her own stunning beauty and the reactions she gets from other men? It will take all of Steve’s resolve to protect her—especially from his own desires.
BLUE VELVETKate Gilbert is a woman without a past — or even a passport — to tie her down. Raised by smugglers, she lives by her wits, relishing the sense of freedom that only the life of the open sea can provide. All she knows of love she has learned from classic literature.
Nothing she’s read in Shakespeare, however, could have prepared her for Beau Lantry. The brash, handsome playboy helps Kate out of a tough scrape, putting his own life on the line. Now Kate is in Beau’s debt, and as reluctant as she is to compromise her hard-won independence, she’s intrigued by the prospect of a new kind of life in the arms of this wealthy stranger. But can Beau keep Kate out of harm’s way long enough to convince her that happiness is worth leaving behind a world of ever-present danger?
