Addison Carter was hired by Magnolia Oil to work as their company doctor in Healdton, Olkahoma. In 1917, oil companies didn't hire women to work for them, so that alone was quite a miracle.

But soon she is hired by Tilly and Clara Anderson to set their cantankerous cousin Tucker Anderson's broken leg and care for him until he healed. Tucker figured he'd died and gone to hell when his cousins hired a female doctor to take care of him

Greta Fields had planned to stay one night in Murray County, Oklahoma, to attend her brother's wedding, even though she thought he was making the biggest mistake of his life for the second time. But on her way out of town, she caused a three car pileup when she dropped her cell phone and tried to retrieve it while traveling ninety miles an hour. For her crime, she was forced to serve four months of community service in Sulphur, Oklahoma, with none other than that policeman she'd had words with at the reception acting as her escort to and from work. She almost opted for six months in jail rather than have to deal with him every day. Kyle Parsons, a rancher and policeman in Sulphur, had looked across the outdoor wedding reception and figured he was staring at an angel straight from heaven. It didn't take him long to realize his first impression was dead wrong when it came to Greta Fields. His truck and trailer were part of the three vehicle pileup the morning after the wedding, and he lost a prize Angus bull that he hadn't had time to insure. To add insult to injury, the judge put him in charge of taking Greta to and from her community service job. He would have rather dealt with a hungry rattlesnake than that spoiled brat of a woman. Greta can't wait to get back to her city life, and Kyle can't wait for her to go. Somehow their hearts didn't get the message

From thin air by Carolyn Brown( Book )

Ira McNewell was supposed to be dead. The government had sent a telegram saying he had been killed in action, yet there he was, sprawled out beneath Alice on the floor of the Black Swan Hotel. For a minute, she thought she'd died when she fell off the ladder and he'd come to escort her to heaven, but surely God wouldn't make a mistake like that. Ira had been engaged to her sister Catherine when he'd gone off to war, not Alice. Now it was up to her to give him the horrible news that the flu had wiped out his whole family, and his fiancě had married another man. To soften the blow, she hired him to work for her at the hotel. Poor Ira didn't know if he was doing the right thing or not. Alice had been tagged the village idiot when she was just a child. Having her for a boss wasn't the best-case scenario, but like thousands of other soldiers coming home from the war, he was broke and hungry. Working at the Black Swan was at least a job, and jobs were hard to come by. Alice had never minded that the folks in the little southern Arkansas town of Huttig thought she was dim-witted. At least not until Ira came home. She'd been in love with him since she was a girl, but she wasn't stupid enough to think that he could ever love her back ... or could he?
