Two sisters find unexpected love and help bring peace between two enemy warriors in Jo Beverley's passionate, Viking-filled "Day of Wrath"; a jilted heroine, a noble sea captain, and his young nephew heal old wounds and form a family at the dawn of the 19th century in Alice Alfonsi's charming "Starlight Wedding"; a cowboy kidnaps a mail-order bride intended for another to provide a "mother" for four orphans he has inadvertently won in a poker game in Tess Farraday's lively, funny "Last Kiss at the Loving Cup Saloon"; and a downed plane, missing millions, and Y2K cause problems for a wealthy foundation director in Kate Freiman's very modern, mystery-laced "Joy to the World."
