A Shocking Proposition
Bold and beautiful, Anna Meyer dared to walk into a campsite full of Texas cattlemen . . . and offer one hundred dollars to the man who’d help her forge a frontier homestead.
A Reckless Agreement
On the brink of manhood, Chance Wyatt agreed to settle down and build a home with the lovely stranger. The boy in him never considered the possibility of love. But the man in him could not deny the passion . . .
They vowed to live together for one year only. But as the challenges of the savage land drew them closer together, neither could resist an aching desire that enflamed their hearts, touched their souls . . . and broke all the rules.
