The Pirate, The Adventurer & The Cowboy

The Pirate (originally published in Harlequin Temptation #287 in January 1990)
Katherine Inskip’s life is at a complete standstill. She’s overworked, stressed out and feeling blasé about love—a bad state for the author of historical romances to find herself in. A vacation is what she needs—sun, sand and relaxation. But on a beautiful South Seas island, Kate finds a whole lot more than she’d bargained for. Jared Hawthorne, owner of the island resort and resident swashbuckler, could have stepped off the pages of one of her books. He’s her perfect fantasy—charming, adventurous, and dashing—and more than willing to play the part. But could Jared have too much in common with his pirate ancestors?

The Adventurer (originally published in Harlequin Temptation #293 in March 1990)
Sarah Fleetwood has always gone with her instincts, and her gut instincts are telling her that Gideon Trace is her hero. Sarah wants to find the Fleetwood Flowers, gold and gem earrings owned—and buried—by her ancester Emelina. And Gideon, an expert on treasure hunting with whom Sarah has been corresponding, is just the man to help her find them. But Gideon isn’t quite sure what to make of Sarah when she arrives on his doorstep and tells him just that!

The Cowboy (originally published in Harlequin Temptation #302 in May 1990)
Margaret Lark knew all about cowboys in pin-striped suits: they were the heroes in her books. She’d never admit to fantasizing about that type of man—much less acknowledge that she’s walked out on one. And Rafe Cassidy—with all the powerful grit of a true cowboy—is fantasy material. He’s just not her fantasy anymore! But Rafe is shooting for a different ending to their story. One year after their explosive breakup—a breakup fueled by corporate intrigue, betrayal and bitter accusation—Rafe once again stakes his claim on her heart. As ruthless and determined as a gunslinger, he’s not above blackmail to get her out to his Arizona ranch…for the final showdown.
