3 wonderful novellas that take place in Red Rock TX the home of the Fortunes of TX fame. The town's Spring Fling, big party, is soon and the local R.R. Gazette has published an anonymous love letter - everyone is town has an opinion of who the author is and who it's for. Ann Majors SECRET KISSES features Jane Snow & Matt Harper they have a history from back in high school and are now vying for the same job at Fortunes TX Ltd. Jane's Mom convinces her the letter is from Matt at the same time she's telling Matt that Jane wrote it to him! With true TX style Ms Majors writes a fun novella. Christine Rimmer's HIDDEN HEARTS introduces us to Annie Grant, a teller at the Fortunes' bank Red Rock Commerce, and Greg Flynn is one of Red Rock's finest. Greg was Annie's older brother's best friend but Hank's been gone for 7 years now. Hank and Greg each restored an old motorcycle and Hank lost his life on one of their many rides. Greg feels he needs to be Annie's big brother but she wants more she has loved him since she was 10. An incident at the bank has Annie determined to tell Greg of her love. Will Greg take Annie to the Spring Fling? Ms Rimmer has given us a great short story with wonderful characters. Karen Rose Smith's DREAM MARRIAGE gives us the Mannings - Gareth & Laura. He has been gone for 6 weeks for his work and she's stayed at her mother's and now doesn't want to come home but does find herself pregnant, what will she do? She has become a caterer out of boredom but now has the contract for Spring Fling. Great story of a couple trying to reunite. Will Gareth come to the Spring Fling? We also find out who wrote that letter that created all the fuss in Red Rock. All 3 were great short stories!!

Prologue. An anonymous person sends a love letter to the Red Rock Gazette.

¿Secret Kisses¿ by Ann Major. Shy Jane Snow wonders if Matt Harper did it, but she fears pursuing this as he humiliated her back in high school. Besides they are competing for the same job as Director of Market research at Fortune, TX LTD.

¿Hidden Hearts¿ by Christine Rimmer. Police Officer Greg Flynn sees Annie Grant more as a younger sister rather that the life time lover role that she wants. When she sees the letter, she prays that Greg wroite it, but it will take a hostage situation to open up his eyes that his love for Annie is radically different than that of a sibling.

¿Dream Marriage¿ by Karen Rose Smith. When her spouse Garth Manning runs off on business in Tokyo, Laura decides enough is enough as he always chooses work over her. She wants children and is deciding to be a single mom though she runs a business. She knows Gareth back in Texas wants to reconcile and wonders if he placed the love letter in the local newspaper as part of baring his soul.

These are three fine interrelated novellas start off with a misconception involving the letter and takes off from there as somewhat comedic contemporary romances starring likable protagonists in which the woman knows what she wants.
