Seducing the Sheriff
Half dressed and going for naked…
Starlight Tyler needs to get rid of something inconvenient—like her virginity—pronto. With her mother, a Pinkerton agent, and a wealthy suitor she can’t stand on her trail, there’s only one solution to stop them in their tracks—Cordero Tate, the love she left behind.
She never expected his past to stall her headlong rush into his arms.
Sheriff Cordero Tate is a haunted man on a mission. Come hell or high water, he’ll round up every member of the gang responsible for the deaths of his wife and unborn child. He’ll make damn sure he never puts his heart on the line again. As in never impregnating another woman. One look at Star, though, and all the old feelings of love and lust come back in a rush. Worse, she’s just as determined to lasso him into her web of passion as he is to keep her chaste.
Their exploration of ways around that impasse leads to nights of unbearable sensual pleasure.
Pleasuring the Pinkerton, formerly published as: Taming Talia
Lust at first sight…
Over her not-so-dearly-departed husband’s grave, Natalia Montrose vows to bed the first suitable man she meets.
Enter one Jared Fields who offers to assist in managing her newfound wealth. No thank you! Indeed, this passionate woman would rather keep control of her wealth while enjoying the virile stranger until she’s sated all of her desires.
Disowned by his New York City family, Pinkerton agent Jared Fields enjoys the freedom afforded by the various assignments he receives. But discovering whether or not the Widow Montrose had her husband killed may prove a little too difficult. When he meets the fiery widow, all he can think about is taking her to bed.
Natalia and Jared circle each other warily. Both feel the pull of sensual heat, but when the Blizzard of 1889 hits, will the sexual sparks be enough to keep them warm…or alive?
Mastering the Marshal
Wanted: Dead or alive. (Alive preferred, just sayin’.)
When US Marshal Sam Dunaway comes to Kenton Valley, Texas, to prepare for a murder trial, the last person he expects to run into is his late wife Celine. The same woman who ran off with his life savings and supposedly died in a boardinghouse fire.
Plain Jane seamstress Selma Nelson is surely a dead ringer for Celine. Rest assured, the demure dressmaker has a secret or three. Is there a chance Sam will understand if and when she comes clean with the truth? More likely, he’ll likely lock her away and toss the key.
What a dilemma. Either Sam sets aside his principles and arrests her or he loses the love of his life. One thing for certain, he can’t deny the resurgence of passion that’s fanning the smoldering embers of their former love into a roaring inferno.
