Plain Jane Holly Lamb loves working with the kids at the Hopechest Ranch for Orphans. But a threat to her life makes her see that the children are not the only ones at the ranch who hold her heart.

The realization that she has fallen head over heels in love with her boss, the wickedly handsome Blake Fallon, causes a romantic dilemma for her.

Innocent Holly has no idea how to pursue a man of Blake's considerable experience, and he's not making matters any easier. Blake seems unaware that she's even a woman. To him, she's an indispensable secretary and the surrogate mother to the kids at the ranch. In a desperate attempt to attract Blake, Holly ditches her mousy demeanor and lets her wild side loose—a move that definitely gets Blake's attention.

Holly and Blake are fresh and appealing characters, and their romantic ups and downs are sweetly entertaining. A Hasty Wedding is part of The Coltons miniseries and was originally published as a direct-mail-only title. (Oct., 256 pp., $4.99)
