THE NINE-MONTH MARRIAGE, SSE-1148 - Once upon a time, Abby Heller was the lovable, headstrong kid who idolized Cash Bravo. In her hero-worshiping eyes, the Wyoming rancher could do no wrong. But one urgent April night, Cash made a woman of Abby... and Abby came up pregnant.

THE MARRIAGE CONSPIRACY, SSE-1423 - Hardworking detective Dekker Smith had always been beautician Joleen Tilly’s best buddy.
