A man bent on revenge
A woman determined to survive
A land that knows no mercy
Meet the Men of the Outlaw Trail

When Kate Winters is left stranded and defenseless in outlaw country, she knows there’s little chance she’ll make it out alive…until she stumbles across a ruthless gang hanging a cowboy for his cattle. She waits until the outlaws are gone, desperate enough to claim the dead man’s horse to make her escape—only to realize he’s not dead after all.

Those outlaws should have made damn sure Luke Bowden was good and gone. Now he vows he’ll have his revenge no matter the cost. But they’re miles away from the nearest town, and the woman who saved his hide won’t survive the ride back. He owes her his life—he owes her everything—and it doesn’t take long before he’s faced with a terrible choice: stand by Kate…or claim his revenge?

The Present 

A girl who isn’t what she seems …

Lorelei Carson was different, always had been. She had a tough life and her chances of finding love were next to zero. She worked three jobs, barely got her first apartment, and was still enduring the lashing tongues of bullies from high school. She’d hoped once she moved out of her foster parents’ home that it would stop, but it only got worse. In fact, what was supposed to be the best night of her life became the worst when a borrowed dress is ruined and the shoes that went with it are stolen! Little did she know, her troubles had just begun.

The Past

An unsuspecting young man …

Jefferson Cooke, the eldest son of one of the famous Cooke brothers of the Triple-C Ranch wasn’t looking for love. Why bother when there were no young women around to marry? If he wanted a wife, he’d have to send for a mail-order bride and the thought didn’t appeal to him. In his mind, it was far too risky. His situation, therefore, was hopeless. Little did he know a prospect was about to show up and wearing a funny pair of shoes to boot! But that’s not all that was strange about the young woman put into his family’s care. No, there was more to her than meets the eye and Jefferson was about to find just out how much. But can two people from two different worlds find love? A better question is, can they fight it?

A Wrangler

A Beauty

And one fussy angel …

Callan Jones came to work for the Whites with no expectations, a little money in his pocket and a good work ethic. It was all he needed. After losing his family back in Texas, this was his chance to make a fresh start. Then he showed up. Some dandy claiming to be his guardian angel!

If Arabella didn’t stop watching the wrangler at the neighboring ranch, they might have to vamoose for a reason other than her father’s gambling habit.

Giles Mealing was looking forward to ending his service as the mayor of Creede, Colorado—except the only other person on the ballot is a known thug.

Diane Turley loves working in the mayor’s office and more specifically, with the mayor. Although she detects no romantic feelings from him, she longs for them. As a result, she hides her own attraction deep inside. She can’t imagine working for anyone else.

It takes a desperate enemy to wake them up to what they could have together.
