Fans of the Fortune's Children series will be thrilled to catch up with this wonderful family this month.

Lisa Jackson kicks off this enchanting anthology with "Angel Baby". An embittered rancher has a chance to prove to himself that he can make it when his great-aunt Kate makes a deal with him to work a ranch to profit for a year in exchange for the deed. A blizzard brings a very pregnant woman to his house and over time, she and her child just might soften a hardened heart.

Another of Kates great-nephews is given the chance to change his life when she offers him his own company if he can get it to turn a profit in one year. What he doesnt need is the sister-in-law of his cousin, whos looking for a job, and seems far from qualified. Barbara Boswell will give her all-business hero a little pleasure in "A Home For Christmas".

The bastard great nephew didnt feel he belonged at the Fortune party. Nor did he expect the construction company Kate gave him to run. Returning to the home of his late Indian mother, he also wasnt ready for the single mother who needed his tracking skills to find her kidnapped daughter. In "The Christmas Child", Linda Turner brings action and adventure together with romance and love.

All three authors do a magnificent job at continuing this entertaining series. The only possible complaint is that you may want to read more. (Dec., 384 pp., $5.99)
