THE CATTLE RUSTLER AND THE RUNAWAY BRIDE (Brides of Sweet Creek Ranch Book 4)
WYATT HAVEN enjoyed spicing up life with dashes of humor and excitement until his antics ended in a tragedy. He makes the painful decision to leave his beloved home and family and join a Wild West show, but a beautiful Englishwoman's plight waylays him when she accepts his impulsive offer to help her save her horses. Even by his standards, marrying a runaway bride and stealing six horses from the cattle baron who hates him is the most dangerous exploit in a long line of reckless stunts. The angry cattleman vows he'll hang for this latest insult. Sickened that his risky ways could cause more harm, especially to Kitty, Wyatt determines to do all in his power to protect this brave and resourceful woman he's falling for.
A family scandal has forced British heiress CATHRYN CLIFFTON to accept the hand of an American cattle baron twice her age. Upon arrival in the frontier city of Cheyenne, Kitty discovers her fiancé's promise of a breeding ranch for her polo ponies was a lie. Worse, he has ghastly designs for them. To save the horses, her whole world, she takes them and runs away with a charming cattle rustler. Instead of a safe life of tea and polo matches, Kitty finds herself marrying the rustler, hiding in an outlaw camp, and being chased by her vengeful fiancé and his six-gun-toting men. Uninhibited and audacious, Wyatt Haven is unlike any man she has ever met, and she finds herself drawn to his good humor and kindness.
He is too wild. And she cares only about her horses.
Theirs was supposed to be a marriage of convenience.
Until love comes calling for…THE CATTLE RUSTLER AND THE RUNAWAY BRIDE.
THE COWBOY REFUSES TO LOSE (Brides of Sweet Creek Ranch Book 3)
Swedish immigrant, BRIGETTA LYNDTZ makes the difficult decision to leave her nanny job in Wyoming and fulfill her dream of owning and operating a bakery. The opportunity in Chicago won’t last long. All she must do is leave behind the family she’s come to cherish and, as one of the few marriageable women in the frontier town, fend off the cowboys who come courting. She considers them crude oafs—except for maybe one determined young cattleman.
Aspiring rancher GARRETT HAVEN yearns to overcome the spirited Brigetta’s disdain of cowboys and win her trust and affection. He sure admires her good-hearted concern for folks, and is certain her dislike of bronco riding and cattle herding arises from fear for his safety. But Garrett’s hopes for the future could turn to ash when a cattle baron intent on stealing his land strikes a disastrous blow. Beaten, bloodied, and penniless, Garrett rejects defeat. He vows to win Brigetta’s love and save his ranch, even if it means risking his neck in the rodeo ring.
Will the nanny pursue her dream? Or will she linger too long over the delectable temptation of…The Cowboy Who Refuses to Lose?
