LURING A LADY Nothing in Sydney Hayward's background of wealth and privilege had prepared her to take the helm of her family's corporation. Her overflowing new responsibilities left no room for complications—and Mikhail Stanislaski was definitely a complication. Sydney had learned the hard way that she could never love anyone—least of all, this masculine stranger who came from a world so different from her own. Still, the way she felt when he put his hands on her made her doubt her resolve to remain alone. This gifted man seemed to have a rare talent for luring even a reluctant lady into his arms…. WAITING FOR NICK Frederica Kimball had been waiting all her life—waiting to grow up, and waiting for the day when Nicholas LeBeck would fall as desperately in love with her as she'd always been with him.

The waiting was over, but the wanting had just begun…. TAMING NATASHA Natasha Stanislaski left her youthful indiscretions far behind when she settled for a quiet life running a successful toy store in rural West Virginia. But then brash Spence Kimball and his adorable little girl joined forces to nudge their way into her shop…and her closely guarded heart.

But when he vowed to love her always, she pulled away once more. What would it take to tame her fears once and for all?

Dead Souls is a novel by Nikolai Gogol, first published in 1842, and widely regarded as an exemplar of 19th-century Russian literature. The purpose of the novel was to demonstrate the flaws and faults of the Russian mentality and character. Gogol masterfully portrayed those defects through Chichikov and the people who he encounters in his endeavours. These people are typical of the Russian middle-class of the time. Gogol himself saw it as an "epic poem in prose", and within the book as a "novel in verse". Despite supposedly completing the trilogy's second part, Gogol destroyed it shortly before his death. Although the novel ends in mid-sentence, it is usually regarded as complete in the extant form.
