1.<b>Just Curious by Jude Devereaux</b>: Karen Lawrence, employed as a typist, had once been married to the love of her life. When he was killed in a car accident, Karen no longer put any effort into keeping herself looking pretty, but often wished they'd had a child together. But she was going to remedy that, and soon. The other women in the office were wild over their boss, McAilister J. Taggert - his handsomeness, his charm, etc. But there were many women who had been engaged to him, but had broken off the engagement, so it was wondered what was wrong with him. After curiosity led her there, Karen was found in his office on the night of the office Christmas party and agreed to a deal with Mac, but found a different side of him than she'd originally thought. So did he! But his wealth and charm weren't all there was to McAlister J. Taggert.
2: <b>Miracles by Jude Devereaux</b>: Julianna Skeffington had loved her grandmother, feeling that before her death there had been more understanding from that woman than from Juianna's own mother. When death had taken her grandmother from her, Julianna had said she'd continue to communicate with her through letters she'd write. A small inheritance had been left to Julianna by Grandmother Skeffington, but it was spent in setting up her time in London by her mother, who was bound and determined Julianna would find a "suitable, rich husband". At a masquerade ball, Julianna escaped to the garden maze, hoping to avoid her mother and the man she'd tried to catch for Julianna. Contemplating her life in London, she decided that being a "ruined" lady - she was so innocent! - was far better than letting her mother plan out her life. The bargain she made with Nicolas DuVille made him think she was not innocent, though, and when he found out it was too late for him. Months later, her letters to her grandmother made all the difference in the world!
