" . . .the beginning of what promises to be a marvelous series. Bring on the next five Rock Creek men!"
Romantic Times

If you liked the Magnificent Seven, you'll love the Rock Creek Six!

Six elite Confederate soldiers band together after the War Between the States, hiring out their guns to protect lawless towns. Violence is all they know, until they make their way to Rock Creek, Texas.

Mary McKendrick, a headstrong schoolteacher who wants nothing more than to find a home, takes charge when a band of ruffians attempts to destroy Rock Creek. With very few men left in town following the war, Mary hires Reese, the mysterious and reluctant leader of a band of guns for hire.

Reese is haunted by the war and all he did during it. The only constant in his life are the five men willing to come whenever he calls them. They will do anything for each other; they are all they have left.

Though Mary prides herself on managing everyone and anything, she can't manage Reese or her feelings for him. Reese doesn't believe he is worthy of loyalty and devotion; he certainly isn't worthy of love. Can Mary teach him differently?

Reese is the first book in the six book Rock Creek Six series, written alternately by RITA Award Winning and New York Times Bestselling authors, Lori Handeland and Linda Winstead Jones. If you enjoyed the movie "The Magnificent Seven" or the novels of Linda Lael Miller and Jodi Thomas, give Reese a try!

The Sexy Six................................................................................................................................... First in the series and a great start. Can Mary make Reese face his past and be all that he can be. Can Reese seduce the spinster school teacher and bring out her inner woman. Are you kidding? Highly recommend.

Six hard men who have fought together through war and beyond are paid to come to Rock Creek to deal with El Diablo and his gang. All of the men have secrets they have never shared though they have been together for at least seven years. This is the introductory book of the series and tells the story of Mary and Reese. Mary is the schoolteacher and seems to have more gumption than anyone else in town. She wants to stay in Rock Creek and is willing to use her hard earned money to remove the threat of the banditos that come too often to town. Reese was a Confederate soldier and is haunted by his experiences. The story of their meeting, getting to know one another and growing close is fun to read. Neither have expectations but both care more than they are willing to share. The other five men are introduced just enough to make me want to read more about them and find out what their secrets are and who will manage to make them whole. I have only read this book in the series and truly enjoyed it. I have found out through looking online that the books in this series are written by two authors that alternate with each writing three books in the series. Thank you to NetGalley and Night Shift Publishing for the copy of this book to read and review. 4.5 Stars
