Two revised Janet Dailey stories in one volume . . .
Book 1 - "Giant of Mesabi." Tension grew between them, angering Alanna. "Hate me if you want." The grooves near Rolt's mouth deepened sardonically. "But you will be mine – in every way!" Alanna gasped with surprise. Rot's boldness was unbelievable. He knew that she was in love with Kurt. How could he have the audacity to claim his brother's girl? Well, this was one time the arrogant, egotistical Rolt Matthews wouldn't get what he wanted, Alanna thought defiantly. She just wouldn't cooperate. No matter what he said, Rolt couldn't make her marry him against her will.
Book 2 - "The Thawing of Mara." Mara had locked her feelings away. Aloof, cold as ice - that was Mara Prentiss. And she felt she had every reason to be that way. Her father's infidelity had killed her mother. That's what love leads to, Mara thought. Mara hated her father, Adam, but she looked after him out of duty. When he became friends with the striking, persuasive Sinclair Buchanan, a tenant on Mara's land, she was incensed. When Sinclair began his campaign to unfreeze Mara's bitter heart, she was tempted. But she had no intention of falling in love. Surely she was above stooping to that!
