Blue Skies of Texas by Cynthia Breeding
In order to expose the sheriff for what he was—a criminal that poisoned local ranchers’ water forcing them to sell to wealthy Yankees—Texas Ranger Luke Ahrens must go undercover. He poses as a stagecoach robber to lure the sheriff into making a mistake.
But one of the passengers on one of his ‘hold-ups’ is a fiery young woman, orphaned and penniless, come to live with her Texas kin. Unfortunately for Luke, Tori Caldwell recognizes him as the bandit when he is introduced as her uncle’s foreman.
Will she turn him in, destroying their undercover operation? Or will their mutual attraction allow Luke to win Tori’s trust?
