It was like lightning, the first time they looked into each other's eyes: Gray Eagle, the captured Indian brave, and Alisha, the beautiful young settler. As the proud Oglala warrior was being tortured by his white captors, only Alsiha seemed to notice he was a human being - handsome and strong, and one who took her breath away. But if Alisha could have read Gray Eagle's thoughts she would have been even more disturbed...Because from the moment he saw her, the Indian knew he had to possess the fair-skinned one - and his life would not be complete until he had made her his slave!

Each night, Alisha sweetly remembered Gray Eagle's bold caresses, burning kisses, his blazing passion. Each day, she scanned the vast horizon in hopes her Oglala brave would recapture her. Then one clay, as she beheld the blue skies of the wild frontier, Alisha saw hundreds of Indian warriors riding to the gates of Fort Pierre -- and at their head was the fierce Gray Eagle. Though her most fervent prayers had been answered, Alisha's heart skipped a beat: would Gray Eagle destroy her -- or make her destiny his own?

That she was a white woman living in the red man's worb did not matter. They had promised each other their hearts forever -- nothing could keep them apart. GRAY EAGLE was fierce and gentle, powerful and possessive. He would never forsake his bride of two moons; he would never let her go. But when Alisha awoke to dawn's first light her bronze-skinned warrior was gone. Her lips were swollen from his savage kisses; her body bruised from his brutal passion -- and still she longed for him. Lost between two worlds, she was desperate and alone.

Taking Chances (1993)

Kirstin Lowrey wasn't accustomed to widowhood yet, but she was all too familiar with being at the beck and call of her three grown children and their children. Now, though, she had finally summoned the courage to start over again--a new job, anew look, and a whole new life far from her native Augusta, Georgia... all the way to California! Getting away was hard enough, but having an accident en route and ending up on a ranch in New Mexico was nearly disastrous. Especially when her all-too-welcoming host turned out to be a divorced doctor with an irresistibly appealing bedside manner. She and Christopher Harrison had a lot in common. And it wasn't so very far from New Mexico to California. Maybe they could even go there together... if Kirstin could just learn to let go of the past. Was it time to take a chance on a brand new future--time to love again?

Before her stands a Cherokee brave, tall and broad-shouldered, scarcely clothed. Storm Dancer whispers that she knew him once...long ago. He vows to keep her safe. By morning, he seems to vanish, yet Storm Dancer will remain with Shannon, in every way a flesh-and-blood man who awakens her every womanly longing. For their spirits call to each other... Storm Dancer's vow is kept. He is more honorable by far than the white man Shannon must wed, and time will prove that only he can save her from violence and treachery. That he is the only man she will truly love...

Мерси, мила. Предполагам не са издадени още на бг. И да те питам, влизала ли си във сайта й. По някаква незнайна причина, не ми зарежда линка. Опитах от ФантастикФикчън да направя връзка, след това от Уикипедията, най-накрая написах ръчно адреса в полето - www.janelletaylor.com - и нищо не става - не ми зарежда :( :( :(

Мерси мила, и аз се зачудих дали не е така, ама намерих статия в сайта на в."Черно море" и само това ми отговаряше на "Обещай ми завинаги". Ама няма и да се учудя, ако я има издадена и с това заглавие ;) Затова реших да напиша него, пък все някой щеше да каже, ако не е така. Както и стана. Веднага ще го поправя. :kiss:

Мила Watching Amanda (2005)е издадена тази година под името "Заради теб"

ето и резюмето:

Аманда Седжуик е самотна майка и едва свързва двата края. За нищо на света не би се обърнала за помощ към състоятелния си баща; иска от него само обич, но така и не я получава.

След смъртта му животът й се преобръща. Внезапно Аманда се превръща в богата наследница. Само че в завещанието ексцентричният богаташ е заложен капан - тя е длъжна да спази наглед безсмислените условия, иначе губи всичко.

Итън Блек е онзи, който ще следи за стриктното изпълнение на изискванията. Той се съгласява да изпълни последната воля на богаташа само защото му е задължен. Иначе до края на живота си не би стъпил в Ню Йорк - града, свързан с толкова болезнени спомени след трагичната смърт на бременната му жена.

В задълженията му обаче не влиза влюбването в Аманда. Нито необходимостта да рискува живота си заради нея. А рискът е голям, защото някой я дебне.

И часът на покушението неумолимо наближава... :)
