Keeping Katerina: The 1840s is a time of increasing social awareness, particularly for progressive cotton mill owner Adrian Bennett and his son Christopher. But one social issue Christopher has never considered much is violence against women. A chance encounter with Katerina Valentino changes everything, as Christopher becomes entranced by the delicate, dark-haired beauty. But is Christopher's tender affection enough to help Katerina heal her broken spirit?
Devin's Dilemma: Brighton, England, 1856. For young solicitor Devin Bennett, building his career is his foremost goal. The last thing he expects is Harry: an intense, intelligent and interesting girl Devin can't stop dreaming about. But Harry is hiding something from him, something that might tear them apart and whisk her off to the far side of the world. From the sea-swept beauty of Brighton to exotic Bombay, the Bennett family saga continues in another tale of love beyond the limits of injustice.
