Megan Kirby thought all she wanted was her freedom. Freedom to leave prison behind. Freedom to be the wife and mother she had been denied up to now. She was wrong. She wanted someone to pay for her four lost years of being wrongly accused of embezzlement. Daniel Kirby wanted his sweet, naive wife back. Four years of prison took all that away. The woman in his home and his bed is not the teenage bride he expected. Instead he is living with a woman with one thing on her mind: payback.

When Harry Saunders chose to use her nickname on a resume, she knew anyone reading it would assume she was a man. But that was fine by her - as long as it meant getting the job. She needed the benefits for her sick little boy, and no matter how much one of her bosses hated her for not being entirely honest, she wasn't going to back down and quit.

When her husband left her pregnant, with a four-year-old child and a restaurant on the verge of bankruptcy, the only things Holly McGinty had time for were her kids - and working hard to stay out of the poor house. Five years later, business is booming and her boys are happy, but she's still putting her own needs at the bottom of her priority list. That doesn't stop her from daydreaming about her oldest son's sexy scout leader, though.
