Cora Bennett never had the childhood most children have. Her father was killed during a bank heist, and her brothers and mother have been known as the famous Bennett Bandits ever since. She wants to leave her family’s criminal life, so she begins a correspondence with a man in Lone Hollow as a mail-order bride, hoping he will soon send for her to come and marry him.
Sheriff Wyatt Bullock can’t wait for the girl he’s been corresponding with to arrive in Lone Hollow. He also can’t wait to make her his bride. When Miss Cora Bennett arrives, however, she’s not the proper lady he was picturing in his mind. She rides a horse like a man, can shoot a gun, and wears pants! When her mother and brothers arrive too, not only is Wyatt shocked, but Cora seems surprised too. She also seems scared, and Wyatt doesn’t know what to make of it.
After a band of robbers terrorize a neighboring town, the mayor enlists the help of Wyatt and his deputy sheriff to see to the safety of a stagecoach passing through. When Wyatt discovers who the robbers are, he’s forced to face the truth that Cora not only lied to him but could have written to him just to get information on the stagecoach.
Will he ever believe she didn’t meet him on purpose? And when Cora finds out her family has plans to rob the stagecoach, can she stop them from not only robbing it but gunning down Wyatt in the process?
She’s waiting for true love.
He’s tasked with uncovering the truth.
When nefarious schemes threaten her reputation, he finds his heart on the line with it.
Lady Rosabel, eldest daughter of the Earl of Sherton, has no interest in being a Duchess, despite countless proposals from eligible nobility. Secretly, she is waiting for a love match—preferably with someone who carries no title. Bel’s third Season is predictably disappointing until the mysterious Duke of Wexford arrives and has her questioning her plans to refuse any suitor with his status.
James Allingham, the 6th Duke of Wexford, seems to have inherited the role as advisor to the ailing King along with the dukedom. Investigating Lord Prescott’s schemes is tricky enough without the interference of Lady Rosabel. She is beautiful and intelligent, but Wexford has no time for courting.
Wexford needs to uncover everything about Prescott’s plans to destabilize the colonies. When Lady Rosabel is implicated in the schemes, James fights his suspicions of—and his attraction to—the beautiful young woman as he presses on to find the truth.
