Fresh from the disastrous ending of her three-year engagement, she becomes the romantic focus of feuding twin brothers who’ve inherited the library. Both men could pose for Greek-god statuary. Ricardo is dark, with a sunny disposition filled with Latin machismo. Karlos is blond, enigmatic, and profoundly deaf.
In the silence of the family’s vast library, she finds their mother's hidden diary, revealing a husband who was a Nazi sympathizer and maternal links to the Conversos — Jews who converted to Christianity to escape the Spanish Inquisition.
But it’s the biological secret concealed in that journal that alters the future for everyone.

Get Over Sam
Simple enough, but not easy for Eve Gray to deny her attraction to the devastatingly handsome--and very married--Sam Davidson.
But before she even had a chance to try, midnight struck--and so did an earthquake.
When Eve awoke with a bump on her head, she found she'd been thrown back three days in the past--and sexy Sam Davidson was kissing her! Either it was too much New Year's celebration--or somehow her dreams had collided with reality.
But more importantly, how could she be sure she wouldn't awake from this dream again--at the stroke of midnight?
"Another New Year's Eve transcends any other fantasy I've read. Don't miss this one. It left me breathless"
When she saw the gorgeous, bronze-skinned redhead posing in an ad for Anytime Jeans, Lorelei Hunt couldn't help herself. The powerful message in Adam Logan's eyes prompted her to write the first fan letter of her life. Although the letter was warm, funny, even poetic, she never expected Logan's agent to call her with a publicity stunt. He wanted ordinary, unknown Lorelei to go on a well-publicized dream date with the one and only Adam Logan.
Despite Lorelei's refusals, the agent persisted. He even drove down to her exotic plant nursery in San Diego, arriving just as an overhead sprinkler broke down. Drenched with water, smelling of fertilizer, and squinting behind her old, backup glasses, Lorelei was not looking her best. With one critical glance, the agent rudely tried to call off the date. But Lorelei decided not to let Adam Logan, or his agent off the hook. She would go on the date and show Logan that true beauty involved more than a few curves and a pretty face.
From the moment Lorelei met Adam in the flesh, she knew her plan was doomed. The man wasn't just masculine perfection, he was a compassionate, sensitive guy, too. He looked past her horn-rimmed glasses and preposterous makeup to the woman inside. Dazzled by his first kiss, stirred by his tender touch, Lorelei wondered if Adam would ever forgive her for trying to trick him.
When Kiri Adams was chosen for jury duty, she never expected to become the subject of a crime within the courtroom. The charge was note-passing in the first degree...enticing, lyrical letters of love...and the culprit could be anyone on the jury, from the kind, elderly foreman to the golden-eyed Adonis in the back row.
As Kiri investigated her suspicions, she kept encountering the penetrating amber gaze of Shaun Stevens. Although Shaun wasn't the most likely suspect, Kiri was intrigued by the man, beyond the classic lines of his rugged profile.
Face to face, Kiri couldn't resist Shaun. But she also couldn't ignore the poetic notes that stirred a deeper part of her soul.
