Posted November 23, 2019 by Marsha in Connection to another series, Multi-Author Series, Series, Western Historical Romance / 0 Comments

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! 

Arabella Simpson’s family moved from place to place as they meandered west. Now they were in Creede and it was no different than other place they’d stayed and high-tailed it out of. But, she had to admit, the scenery was beautiful and in more ways than one. 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. 

Can two people determined not to fall in love find it? Maybe with a little help from a certain guardian angel they can.

Watching the Wrangler is the 42nd title in the multi-author series, Cowboys and Angels   For a complete list of titles and authors in this series please visit the Cowboys and Angels page.

He thinks he’s too old for her. She’s too shy to tell him he’s wrong.

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. Having a suspected criminal as the mayor would be like holding a match to a town that’s already a powder keg. Giles reluctantly takes back up the campaign, assisted by his secretary. Continuing his association with the lovely Diane would definitely be the only bright spot to winning the election.

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. So for completely selfish reasons, she organizes efforts toward his re-election, drawing unwanted attention from dangerous men seeking power.

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

The Turn of a Wheel by Amelia C. Adams

Ruth Barnes has been a cook at the Brody Hotel almost since the business first opened. She’s seen countless friends fall in love and get married, and she wonders why such things haven’t happened for her. Maybe she’s not meant to find romance – maybe she should concentrate on opening the bakery she’s dreamed of owning. 

Alex Barker has come to town on business – to help his brother purchase a larger ranch. He wasn’t expecting to come face-to-face with the world’s most beautiful woman when he arrived, nor to be cut down by her within minutes of meeting her. He also didn’t expect to become embroiled in something that could cost him his life. 

Perhaps the so-called magic of the Brody Hotel can set things right again.

The Turn Of A Wheel is the 17th story in the Kansas Crossroads series.  For a complete list of titles in this series and far more please visit our Amelia C. Adams page.
