Eternity Waits, by Susan Macatee

The Model Man by Nicole MacCaffrey 

Single mom and romance novelist Kelly Michaels has no time for a man in her life. But when mega-famous cover model Derek Calavicci puts the moves on her at a romance writers’ conference, she succumbs to temptation. Common sense prevails, however, and after a few passionate kisses she turns him down; she has impressionable teenagers at home, after all, she doesn’t need a one-night-stand with a much younger man, no matter how hot he is. When photos of their passionate moonlight kiss hit the tabloids, her agent has to do some fast footwork to save her reputation. Will the notorious bad boy go along with her scheme?

Derek rarely hears a woman say “no” – it’s been that way his entire life. If Kelly isn’t interested, he’s not going to push her– even if she does melt like ice cream on a hot sidewalk every time he touches her. But when an unexpected opportunity falls into his lap by way of Kelly’s scheming agent, he jumps at the chance. Pretend he’s in love with Kelly Michaels for two weeks? No problem. After all, the lady may say she’s never going to sleep with him… but he’s got two weeks to convince her otherwise.

Sequel to Wicked Woman      

San Francisco—Colorado—Texas, 1885

Betrayed and abandoned by her adulterous husband, actress Jess Sullivan has only one goal:  to return home to the happy, comfortable “good girl” life she foolishly forfeited in the name of love.  Before she can do that she’s determined to save enough money to pay back what she and her husband stole from her brother.  Riddled with guilt, Jess has no use for men or romance, especially a man like Leland Montgomery, an ultra-charming, aristocrat turned footloose gambler.  

Lee however, is enchanted by Jess’s breathtaking beauty, and quick, sharp wit. Assuming she follows the casual immorality of her profession, and hoping for a brief, torrid affair, Lee resolves to seduce her.  Jess though, is hardly the shallow, loose woman he expects. As his feelings for her deepen, it becomes apparent that any relationship with her must be respectable.  But men of his background do not marry actresses, especially ones that are already married.   Then her stage manager is murdered, and when it’s discovered that the man gambled away Jess’s savings, she and Lee are blamed for the crime. After narrowly escaping the clutches of corrupt lawmen, they set out across the Colorado prairie, one step ahead of a posse and shadowed by a passion that will no longer be denied. . . .
