Overview

Dear Reader,

These stories of classic romance are among my favorites—and I welcomed the chance to revise them for today’s reader.

Danger and excitement drive the world of big-time autoracing—and racing champion Mitch Braden thrives on both. THE INDY MAN has legions of female fans hoping to see him in the winner’s circle. But winning Susan Mabry’s heart comes first. Susan is sweet, sassy, and independent, and she’s everything he’s ever wanted in a woman.

THE HOMEPLACE has special meaning for me—it’s set on a one-hundred-year-old farm very much like the one where I grew up! Cathie Haradon’s life turned upside down the day that city slicker Rob Douglas bought her family’s farm. No matter who owns it, the old place still holds memories of happier, more innocent days...and she can’t go home again. But Rob seems determined to convince the pretty schoolteacher that she belongs by his side...and that home is where the heart is.

Presenting two unforgettable heroes for your reading pleasure...

With love,

Janet Dailey

Because of You by Janet Dailey This book has 2 complete novels in it, both published in 2002 The Indy Man susan is engaged to Warren, who works in a law office. Martin Braden has made it his purpose to speak up and seek her out and let her know she is beautiful. He's shown up at dinner parties and even to help her brother change the flat tire, and to thank him-to be invited to their house for dinner. He's the hot racing car driver. She keeps telling him she won't date him that she's engaged. She's visiting Warren's father at the hospital when she learns from the other patients' radio that he's been in a pit stop accident. After the accident they talk him into staying at their house so he can recuperate. Reissue of 2002 book. Kinda thought so cuz there's no real high-tech things and he smokes cigarettes. Homeplace Cathie an elementary school teacher is going to marry Clay. They were finally engaged a year ago now. Problem is they keep putting off the wedding, save til after college, save til after getting a job, save til they have enough to afford a house, save till they find a house. The family's farm land was also sold and she and Clay remember all the good things about spending their childhood there. Love that this book is about all the memories I have of where I grew up-on a farm. Very nice detailed letter about how the Americana books were written, but I don't follow why these two old books, of 10 years ago are given another name and put into a new book because they are old books still.
