Melody Jordan would rather pack her bags and head back to Virginia than marry a man she doesn't love. But her father is dead and she can't leave her stepmother and two young half-brothers to fend for themselves while rustlers steal their cattle and the nearest rancher tries to steal their ranch. Lantz Royal has made it clear he intends to get the Spring Water Ranch one way or another. Which means Melody either has to marry the man or get ready to put up the fight of her life. Ignoring the advice of her foreman, Melody has been managing the ranch since the death of her father. She is desperate for help, but not desperate enough to hire Chet Attmore, a man with a gun riding on his hip.

Chet Attmore is ready to hang up his guns and find a quiet place to settle down where no one knows him. He's only passing through and has no intentions of getting involved in the troubles of the Spring Water Ranch or the pretty young woman who lives there. Chet is not looking for employment; he only wants to trade his tired horse for a fresh one. Chet knows he's a gunfighter first and foremost, and that alone will prevent him from having the only kind of life he ever wanted. But all his good intentions are lost when he gets pulled into the fray. Soon he's in too deep to leave and his heart is hoping for things his mind knows he an never have.

Reviews for Chet ...

"Leigh writes a taut, well-paced story with admirable heroes and rotten, nasty villains what just I love. Chet is the perfect hero we all want tough, tender, smart. Melody is wonderful, too, ready to listen, willing to say no and mean it, and ready to fight for the ones she loved."
Merry Cutler, ANNIE'S BOOK STOP, Sharon, MA

"This novel is fast paced action. It is also a wonderful story of love that survives in spite of everything. One moment I was laughing, and the next I would be crying. Leigh Greenwood never fails to deliver a top notch story. Fans everywhere will be thrilled with CHET."
Jeanine Birckbichler, Affaire de Coeur

"Chet is a gunfighter looking for a home, while Melody is a woman out of place in the Texas home she's trying to save. Chet has it all! Romance and rustlers, gunfighters and greed. Romance doesn't get any better than this! The Cowboys is a true collector's series. Every book is a gem and Leigh Greenwood polishes every story until it shines! Brilliant writing and characterization!" -Kristina Wright, The Literary Times
