To Tame a Texan's Heart by Jodi Thomas
Half the folks in America love reading the gunslinging tales of Granite Westwind. But nobody knows the real story behind the legend: Granite Westwind is a woman.
True McCormick grew up wild and free among the Texas Rangers and Harvey girls of the untamed West. Now she’s a famous published author, writing Wild West adventures under the name "Granite Westwind." But when her publisher wants to send Granite Westwind on tour, she has two choices. She can 'fess up to her true identity, or hire someone to play the part of the lightning-fast gunslinger.
She finds her man in a Galveston jailhouse. Seth Atherton is a hardware store clerk with foolhardy dreams of gunsmoke and justice. But True is determined to turn this handsome young greenhorn into a larger-than-life hero. Filling the boots of a legend isn’t easy. Especially when the bullets begin to fly—and True begins to fall in love with the hero she created.
