Overview

Together at last—two exquisitely sensual novels of the Marcelli family of California wine country . . . where wedding bells are ringing and love is in the air!

The Marcelli Bride

It takes one strong-hearted woman to make a rebel say “I do,” and for handsome, headstrong former Navy SEAL Joe Marcelli, that woman may just be the commander in chief’s daughter! After a terrifying kidnapping attempt, Darcy Jensen has been placed in hiding at the Marcelli Winery, the family business that Joe defiantly rejected to carve his own path. Now working undercover, Joe begrudgingly does his duty “babysitting” the first daughter. But getting closer to this fearful, fiery beauty soon proves to be the greatest pleasure he’s ever known. Can Joe protect Darcy from danger, when he’s falling dangerously in love?

The Marcelli Princess

Mia Marcelli awakens to find a man in her bed—and nearly faints: four years ago, while working undercover, Diego, the love of her life and father of her unborn child, perished before her eyes. Now he’s come to the Marcelli vineyard where Mia is raising an adorable son and offers a stunning confession: he was never Diego, but Rafael, Prince of Calandria, and Mia’s wary disbelief fades as their passion reignites. She doesn’t know that he intends to give their boy a regal upbringing in Calandria—even if he must seduce Mia into marriage. But as he falls for this luscious beauty, the prince must choose between his royal duties—and the call of his heart.

"The Marcelli Bride". The four kidnappers wearing Halloween masks abduct the president's daughter Darcy Jensen. When they reach their van, their leader looks at Darcy in disgust and informs his thugs they snatched the wrong one as no one cares what happens to this loser. They unceremoniously leave her behind in the parking lot as they plan to grab Darcy's glamorous sister Lauren. The two siblings are sent to separate safe houses. After a harrowing overseas ops scenario, Lieutenant Commander Joe Larson and his men are happy to be back in the States. Joe is assigned to protect Darcy at the Marcelli Vineyards. He only recently learned that he is a Marcelli. Amidst the vineyards, Joe and Darcy fall in love, but first he must keep her safe. "The Marcelli Princess". In California Mia Marcelli is used to sleeping alone ever since Diego died several years ago. When she awakens to find a man in her bed she threatens to harm him while her two grandmothers charge into the room. The intruder explains he is Rafael, Crown Prince of Calandria. He faked his death but hides the reason for his reappearance; as he has come to take home their offspring four year old Danny, second in line to the throne. He even pretends not knowing he sired a son with her when she was in Calandria. If he gets the kid back to his kingdom, Mia has no legal rights. These reprints of two of the Marcelli saga combine humor with suspense. Both entries are filled with action from the onset and strong characters though Rafael will not be liked. This omnibus contains two fine romantic thrillers. Harriet Klausner
