Ciao!!!

A saga de uma família durante a guerra pela Independência dos Estados Unidos. Tories e Rebeldes, norte-americanos e ingleses. Como as tragédias pessoais podem interferir e mudar o destino de um país. Eu achei que a história era trilogia, mas, nas pesquisas para o site, descobri que existem mais duas histórias, publicadas em coletâneas.

Flor do pântano - Patricia Potter - Clássicos da Literatura Romântica
(Swampfire - 1988 - Harlequin)
personagens: Samantha Chatham e Connor O'Neill

O desejo de vingar a morte do noivo levou Samantha Chatham a se voltar contra o pai, o responsável pela morte. Ela fugiu de casa e se juntou aos rebeldes que desejavam libertar a Carolina do Sul dos ingleses. O destino dela se cruzou com o de Connor O'Neill, irmão de seu primeiro amor. Enquanto isso, Connor ficava cada vez mais admirado pelo garoto que o ajudava nos pântanos, sem saber que era a filha de seu maior inimigo.

Samara - Patricia Potter - Clássicos da Literatura Romântica
(Samara - 1989 - Harlequin)
personagens: Samara O'Neill e Reese Hampton

No livro anterior, Connor fala que já basta uma "Sam" na família... Ele devia ter ouvido o próprio comentário. Ao batizar a única filha dos O'Neill com este nome, já podia esperar encrenca. Samara queria aventuras, para isso, embarcou como clandestina no navio do irmão. E acabou prisioneira de Reese Hampton, corsário inglês. Em tempos de guerra, a quem eles seriam leais?

O Elo de Prata - Patricia Potter - Clássicos Históricos 14(The silver link - 1991 - Harlequin)
personagens: Antonia Thereza Margarida Ramirez e Tristan Hampton

Tristan Hampton não queria ser fazendeiro. Queria aventuras (parece alguém que você conhece, se ler a saga). Por isso, o pai o liberou para acompanhar o tio a uma viagem ao Novo México. O território estava sendo disputado entre Estados Unidos e México. Tristan conhece Antônia Ramirez, filha de um influente cidadão local, contrário à anexação pelos norte-americanos. "Ela teria que escolher entre a lealdade a seu povo e o amor por seu inimigo!"

No site http://www.patriciapotter.com/ tem a lista dos livros da autora e sobre essa série, existem mais dois títulos, mas não os conheço.

Miracle of the Heart (novella)MIRACLE OF THE HEART is the story of Rafe Hampton and Blythe Somers.
Blythe has taken some ten orphans in the Shenandoah Valley, 1864 and is trying to give the children a pleasant Christmas. Seth Hampton, a doctor for the southern troops, the Mosby raiders, has dropped into Blythe's farm with a wounded General Massey. She knows that the Union soldiers will be looking for these two. But Seth has been supplying Blythe with what little food he could spare to help her support the little ones. Benji, at five is the youngest one, he came with his sister, Margaret who is eight. Then came Jaime, an embittered twelve year old asking for work in exchange for food and he ended up staying. Traumatized nine year old Suzie came, then Abraham and Micah, nine and eight year old brothers who had set out to find their father and found Blythe instead. Then cama Sarah, a house slave who had gotten lost and Katy and July, two like Sarah who had been sold. Danger came in the form of Major Rafe Hampton, whom Blythe had not heard from in two years. Eighteen months ago Rafe had been informed by a malevalant neighbor that Blythe was marrying his brother, Seth. He has become hard and bitter thinking that he has lost Blythe. Oh, what a story - really great, especially the way it was resolved --- look for Seth's story in HH Untamed: Maverick Hearts 1993. ---- series starts with Swampfire - Samara and Silver Link - All Harlequin Historicals.

Untamed (novella)AGAINST THE WIND short story UNTAMED: MAVERICK HEARTS 7/1993 ISBN: 0373832591
CHASE THE WIND 4/2000 ISBN: 0373217056 Dear Reader, Sometimes magic happens when you are writing a book. A character emerges that you never expected, and he becomes so compelling, you have to give him his own book. That special story happened in both Between the Thunder and Miracle of the Heart, a duo recently reprinted by Harlequin. Now, happily, their sequels are being reprinted in this volume, Chase the Thunder and Against the Wind. One tale is that of Sean Mallory and Ty Donaldson, a Reb and a Yank who met in Between the Thunder. Sean, a hero, and Ty, an antihero, clashed from the moment they met, but they became unlikely allies in a quest for vengeance and justice. In the second, I was able to finish the saga of the O'Neill/Hampton family, which started in my first book, Swampfire, and continued through Miracle of the Heart when Seth Hampton first appeared. His brother won the girl in that story. Now it's his turn. But it is far more than a love story. It is a tale of healing, not only of human souls, but of a nation torn apart by a bitter war. And where else to tell both stories than the West, the place of new beginnings. The West has always fascinated me, because it was a proving ground, always testing the fiber, strength and courage of those who tried to tame it. These heroes, and the women they love, embody its spirit. I hope you enjoy both stories as much as I enjoyed telling them. Patricia Potter.
