But when he's charged with delivering a sharp-eyed beauty to the law, Ian can't help but feel he may still have something left to lose.

Orphaned at twelve, Maggie Freeman has always found her way out of trouble. But now there's a vigilante mob at her back who would like nothing more than to see her hang for a crime she didn't commit.

Always and Forever

 

A Desperate Need
Sassy Grace Atwood never expected to find her proper self accidentally tumbling into a stranger's bed. If she weren't desperate for a man to lead a wagon train of brides to a woman-starved town out West, she never would have gone near Jackson Blake - former lawman or not.

A Consuming Passion

Come to think of it, that was the only time Blake's ever seen the straitlaced Miss Atwood the least bit ruffled. He's certain that beneath her buttoned-up appearance lies a passionate woman aching to break free. But though Blake longs to take her in his arms, all he can offer Grace is a life on the run.

No Man Could Tame Her - Until He Came AlongTaming of Jessi Rose

Jessi Rose Clayton would do anything to keep the family ranch from falling into the wrong hands-even take an avenging outlaw as her protector. With his rugged, handsome face and muscular bronze body, Griffin Blake would be hard for any woman to resist, no matter how willful she might be. Still, Jessi Rose has no intention of falling for Griffin Blakes' charms.

The railroad-robbing Griffin faces a challenge of his own: either help this ornery (though beautiful) woman save her land-or return to his jail cell. Griffin soon discovers that beneath Jessi's steely exterior lies a smoldering sensuality-one that she's kept hidden far too long. It might be time to tame this wild Texas rose. And Griffin Blake could be just the man for the job. (1999)
