The Hostage (Great Chicago Fire Trilogy Series #1)
 by Susan Wiggs
Mass Market Paperback 
ISBN-13: 9781551665924
Pub. Date: April 2000

Synopsis
October 8, 1871--One small spark ignites the entire city of Chicago, sending 
its residents into panic. But amid the chaos, a chance encounter leads to an 
unexpected new love.

Unaware of the fire sweeping toward them, Deborah Sinclair confronts her 
wealthy, powerful father, determined to refuse the society marriage he has 
arranged for her. Suddenly, out of the smoke and flames, a stranger 
appears--gun in hand, intent on avenging an unforgivable crime. As fire 
consumes the elegant mansion, the ruthless man takes the fragile, sheltered 
heiress hostage.
Swept off to mist-shrouded Isle Royale, Deborah finds herself the pawn in Tom 
Silver's dangerous game of revenge. Despite her horror at being kidnapped, she 
is drawn to the people of the close-knit community and to the startling beauty 
of the island. As she engages in a battle of wits with her brooding captor, 
Deborah begins to understand the injustice that fuels his anger, an injustice 
wrought by her own family. And as winter imprisons the isolated land, she finds 
herself a hostage of her own heart....

The Mistress (Great Chicago Fire Trilogy Series #2)
by Susan Wiggs
 Mass Market Paperback 
ISBN-13: 9781551666105
Pub. Date: 10/28/2000

Synopsis

October 8, 1871 - One small spark ignites the entire city of Chicago, sending 
its residents into panic. But amid the chaos, a case of mistaken identity leads 
to an unexpected new love. 

As the historic fire ignites across town, Kathleen O'Leary finds herself 
dressed in borrowed diamonds and silk, enjoying a lavish masquerade. The 
penniless maid has caught the eye of Dylan Francis Kennedy, the rich, handsome 
gentleman all of high society has been speculating about. The night feels alive 
with magic...and ripe with promise. 
Then fire sweeps through the city, cornering the young lovers with no hope of 
rescue. Desperate to share their last moments together, Kathleen and Dylan 
impulsively marry. Incredibly, they survive. Now, as the fire burns down to 
cold ash, Kathleen must tell Chicago's most eligible bachelor that he has 
married a fraud. But the joke's on her. For this gentleman is no gentleman. 
While Kathleen had hoped to win Dylan's love, he had planned only to capture 
her heart and steal her fortune. Dylan Kennedy - con artist, gambler, and 
ne'er-do-well - has been unwittingly caught in his own game. Now the real 
sparks are about to fly.
