Langtry - With its graceful columns and wide galleried wings, the great plantation house of Langtry sat like a jewel on the banks of the Mississippi. Surrounded by sweeping vistas of emerald lawn and sapphire sky, Langtry's seven thousand acres were the pride of the River Road - and the sweet haven Brynna Stanton yearned for...
As the cicadas whirred in the thick, hot grass, the peace of Langtry seeped into Brynna's very soul. When she'd come to live on her aunt's Louisiana sugar cane plantation, Brynna never expected to find such joy - or the chance to stay there forever as the bride of Temple Sinclair, her aunt's disturbingly handsome stepson. Content to have a marriage inspired by the size of her dowry rather than love, Brynna accepted Temple's very practical proposal. But all too soon the innocent b eauty realized that her husband planned to savor everything she had to offer...including passions she never dreamed she possessed! (oh brother)

Live Oaks - Nothing in the world was as precious to Caramarena (no, I'm not kidding and there's no typo) Cantrell than the early evenings at Live Oaks, the few moments after the last ray of daylight faded and stillness stole over the elegant plantation house. Just listening to the muted rhythym of the Apalachicola River provided the young mistress of the house with a sense of serene beauty she had never found anywhere else.
But Caramarena's moments of peace ended the day Asher Worthy strode on to the great lawn of the plantation looking for her ailing father. That handsome young English ship owner set the house in a turmoil with his talk of a business alliance. Caramarena sensed that the rogue was hiding something behind his schemes. But his searing gaze drew her to him, and his demanding kisses warned her to tread carefully. For once she was caught in his strong embrace and held willing captive to the head of his need, she feared she might lose herself and her home forever for a glorious moment of passionate surrender!

Rose of Heaven - Bounded by lush, untouched timberland, rich cottonfields and sweeping magnolia trees, Rose of Heaven was one of the grandest estates in Alabama. And Treasure McGlavrin had vowed to keep it just so - for herself, for her sisters and for the memory of her beloved father...
Then the drifter strolled up the plantation drive and laid claim to it all. But slender, fiery haired (someone call the FD if her hair is truly on fire) Treasure McGlavrin was determined to hold onto her home - no matter what the cost. Until Donovan River took her in his arms. And suddenly, she could no more get the handsome, black-eyed loner out of her heart (how does he fit in there?) than she could get him off her land. She could no more resist the tempestuous fire of his sweet kisses and urgent caresses than a reed in the wind...nor did she want to...
