Ballad Beauty
by Lauren Linwood

After ten years apart, Boston schoolmarm Jenny McShanahan
receives a letter from her beloved father that instructs her
to join him in Texas. She has no idea that he’s become
Famous Sam McShan, the Robin Hood of the West. She arrives
to find Sam already gone, but he left instructions for Jenny
to hire a guide and rendezvous with him in Nevada.

Texas Ranger Noah Daniel Webster knows Sam personally
because his father, Pistol Pete Webber, was Sam’s
longtime partner in crime. When Pete is killed during their
last big score, Noah requests the assignment to bring Sam to
justice. Going undercover, he volunteers to act as
Jenny’s escort across the dangerous prairie, using her
to track her outlaw father’s location.

As they journey through rough country, love
blossoms—but Noah knows the second he arrests Sam, his
betrayal will kill Jenny’s love for him. Should the
lawman do his duty as a Ranger, or should he let love rule?
The choice Noah makes will change their lives forever.
