Overview

Emmaline Hunt only had one thing she could call her own. A piece of land that held a secret not even her drunken stepfather knew about. When he gambles it away in a high stakes poker game, Emmaline does the only thing she can. She tries to steal the land deed back.

Tristan Avery has seen his share of bloodshed while sitting at a gaming table and knows its time to lay low when he wins a wad of cash and a piece of land. Especially after his opponent ends up dead at his feet. High tailing it out of town is his only option but things take a drastic turn when he finds a woman in his hotel room trying to rob him blind.

The botched robbery attempt is only the start of his troubles when Tristan finds his new land occupied by the same girl who tried to rob him. When he realizes he’s left her homeless, and killed her stepfather, his conscience forces him to do the right thing. Taking her to his hometown and setting her up with a new life will make up for all he’s taken from her.

But Emmaline has other plans. She wants her land, and Tristan’s money, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get them. All she has to do is convince him she’s there to stay, outwit him, find a way back home and not let a single soul know she has a gold mine bursting at the seems with untapped wealth.

    Hot Hot Hot!

    The brothers in this series, are the most provacative & sexy hunks of maleness by far! You'll feel swept off your feet as they woo their brides-to-be. Cannot wait to read The Rancher, he's going to raise hairs I'm sure...

    This is the first book I've read in this series and it's a winne

    This is the first book I've read in this series and it's a winner. I like western romance and I'm so glad I got introduced to this author...'cause she does western romance right. The description of rural life in the old west is believably authentic and made me feel like a witness right there alongside the characters in the story. Emmaline was in such a tough predicament when she met Tristan and their backgrounds were so different that at first it was hard to figure how they would become a couple...but become a couple they did and the romance sizzled! Their courtship had its ups and downs but their love straightened out the kinks so that they had an old-fashioned happy ending. Now I'm anxious to read the rest of this series!
