Fearless and irresistible, outlaws are the original bad boys. Now New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas and Linda Broday, Phyliss Miranda, and DeWanna Pace offer up four sexy and romantic stories for women who love men who know how to pack heat. . .
If Cozette Camanez's groom doesn't show up for their wedding by dawn, she'll lose her family ranch. Trouble is, the groom doesn't exist-until unsuspecting thief Michael Hughes comes along. Never was an outlaw faced with such a lovely-and willing-target. . .
Larissa Patrick, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy rancher, has been kidnapped. Only one man can save her: gunfighter Johnny Bravo. Rescuing Larissa is the easy part-but getting her home without losing his heart will take the discipline of a saint. And Johnny's no saint. . .
Lawman Ethan Kimble is finally face to face with his quarry: socialite and bank robber Savannah Parker. The only thing between them is a Winchester pointed at his heart-and some undeniable sparks. If Kimble can tame the Texas Flame, they may ignite a passion that breaks every rule. . .
When outlaw Shadow Rivers and desperado Odessa Kilmore escape a hail of bullets and team up on a long journey, both are determined to hide their secrets-and their attraction. No easy task as they discover a love more powerful than their enemies combined. . .
"Readers couldn't ask for a finer quartet of heroes." –Romantic Times on Give Me a Texas Ranger
Four honorable outlaws find romance in this uneven collection of novellas, the fourth from this group of writers (after 2010's Give Me a Texas Ranger). In headliner Thomas's flimsy "The Outlaw," pretty little liar Cozette cons outlaw-with-a-heart-of-gold Michael into marrying her so she can inherit her neglectful father's ranch. In Broday's strong "Trouble in Petticoats," Larissa Patrick falls for wily Johnny Bravo when her father hires him to rescue her young sister from kidnappers. Outlaw Savannah Parker finds hope for justice and redemption in the arms of Texas Ranger Ethan Kimble in Miranda's "Texas Flame," which deftly weaves layers of secrets into a narrative that keeps readers guessing. Pace's delightful "Most Wanted" captures the flavor and diversity of the genuine Old West as retired gunslinger Shadow Rivers pays back an old friend by helping distressed damsel Odessa Kilmore. The stories emphasize emotion over sensation, creating a sweet, sunny anthology perfect for rainy-day reading.
