“The reigning queen of Americana romance” (Romantic Times), #1 New York Times bestseller Linda Lael Miller charms with this unforgettable Western love story of a runaway bride who wants only to hear three little words from a dashing Oregon lumber baron: My Darling Melissa… When beautiful heiress Melissa Corbin discovers on her wedding day that her groom has a mistress, she begs for a ride out of town on Quinn Rafferty’s private railway car. Determined to prove she’s an independent woman and not just the baby sister to her three older brothers, Melissa makes Quinn a tempting offer: her inheritance in exchange for a marriage that would be in name only—until she says otherwise. But as Quinn’s burning caresses kindle a white-hot desire like she’s never experienced before, the headstrong beauty knows she is falling in love...and won’t admit it until the man she married does first! It’s a gloriously passionate standoff for two proud hearts, a battle of wills too thrilling to resist.

But above their happiness loomed a bitter man's vengeance that could destroy all that Quinn most cherished. Now Melissa and Quinn would risk their very lives for the glorious heights of ecstasy....

The #1 New York Times–bestselling author’s “magnificent” tale of romantic intrigue in the gothic tradition of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre (The New York Times). In the eyes of his daughter Melissa, Charles Upjohn can do no wrong. Where others see a minor novelist whose ego far outweighs his talent, Melissa sees a brilliant artist deserving of a wider audience. Where her sister and brother see a cold and inattentive parent who can’t provide for his family, Melissa sees a doting father whose intentions are beyond reproach. On his deathbed, Charles puts his eldest daughter in charge of her mother and siblings. Melissa will do anything she can to please him—even if it means marrying a man she hates. As Charles Upjohn’s publisher, Geoffrey Dunham holds the keys to the writer’s legacy. Dunham also has the means to provide for Melissa and her family, and the desire to do so. Melissa knows her life with Dunham will be grim and passionless, but she’s willing to sacrifice her own happiness in order to fulfill her father’s wishes. Dunham, however, refuses accept a wife in name only. To win Melissa’s heart, he must destroy everything she believes about her father—and herself. A darkly riveting portrait of the thin line between love and hate, Melissa confirms author Taylor Caldwell’s reputation as one of the twentieth century’s greatest storytellers.

Melissa Joan Hart explained it all-from dating to bullies-in her groundbreaking role as Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All. She cast a spell on millions more viewers as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Now, in Melissa Explains It All, Melissa tells the frank and funny behind-the-scenes stories from her extraordinary past and her refreshingly normal present. Melissa has been entertaining audiences most of her life; when there were no girls named Melissa on her favorite show, the forceful four year old decided she'd get on television her way. From that moment on, Melissa has shown a singular determination and focus-whether it's for booking three national commercials so her dad would build her a tree house or for nailing the audition for Clarissa. From her first commercial to her current starring role in ABC Family's hit Melissa and Joey, Hart never let fame go to her head. She always had one foot in Hollywood and one foot in reality-and still does. Melissa makes us laugh along with her as she talks about: --guest appearances in shows like Saturday Night Live and The Equalizer --auditioning for Punky Brewster and Clarissa --her early Broadway days --wacky parties she's thrown and attended -- the actors who influenced her and whom she befriended, worked with and competed against --her experiences both on and off-set-with Sabrina's Salem the Cat and Elvis the Alligator on Clarissa --how she met the love of her life at the Kentucky Derby Melissa Joan Hart explains all that she's learned along the way-what's kept her grounded, normal and working when others have not been so fortunate-and that she's the approachable, hilarious girl-next-door her fans have always thought she'd be.

TWO BRIDES SWITCH PLACES IN TIME! MISMATCHED BRIDES In modern Memphis, Tennessee, beautiful, headstrong Missy Monroe has found the perfect fiancé, gorgeous and genteel Jeff Dalton, a man she can control in every way… and who bores her to tears. Meanwhile back in antebellum Memphis, Missy’s distant cousin, shy, demure Melissa Montgomery, has been promised from birth to virile, arrogant Fabian Fontenot, a man whose fierce sensuality scares the starch out of her crinoline. Missy and Melissa plan their weddings in the same house, on the same day, only 140 years apart. TUMBLE IN TIME Who would think that a misstep on the stairs could lead to such a crazy tempest in time? One minute the brides are descending the stairs to wed their fiancés; the next, they are switching places in time. Suddenly Missy finds herself stuck in a provincial outpost of the antebellum South, as the presumed fiancée of the most insufferable, sinfully handsome man in all of history. And Melissa finds herself thrust into an amazing, bewildering new world… where she is only too happy to exchange her beast of a fiancé for the gallant soulmate who has now replaced him. Will these two switched, mismatched brides find happiness with their destined grooms? Or will the fickle hand of Fate wreak havoc with them once again? Tempest in Time is an all-time “keeper” in the time-travel romance genre, a full-length, hilarious, sexy romp through the past and present that gives new meaning to the phrase, “The first step is a doozy!”
