HEARTS OF THE WEST - Not one, not two, but FOUR western romances that will touch your heart.
They moved out West, to small towns where dreams of finding home could come true…
The Lady and the Cowboy – An English Lady finds a home on the range with a very determined cowboy.
Lady Eloise always believed honesty was the best policy until her forthright character encouraged her guardian to send her to a distant relative in the American West. Unfortunately, Eloise’s cousin dies before she arrives, and she soon becomes embroiled in a feud between the man determined to take over her cousin’s ranch and a mysterious cowboy who has his own reasons to see justice done.
Homesick and alone, Eloise must choose between trusting an unknown cowboy or abandoning a last chance at love and returning to the stultifying life she left in England.
The Rancher’s Special Delivery -

Bloomin’ Rose – City born and bred school teacher Rose Carter leaves New York for Colorado in search of purpose and meaning to her life. Arriving in rural Jefferson, she meets fellow teacher Johnathon Poole and his group of eager teenage students, excited to be part of the very first class in the newly opened Jefferson High School.

Blue Skies of Texas - Left orphaned and penniless, Victoria ‘Tori’ Caldwell has no choice but to leave New England for her aunt and uncle’s ranch in Texas. She has almost reached her destination when her stagecoach is held up by bandits, the leader of which has piercing grey eyes like a wolf and a touch soft as a caress as he searches her. Only after she arrives at her destination, does she recognize those eyes as belonging to her uncle’s trusted foreman.
THE RANCHER'S SOUTHERN BELLE - The Civil War is over, but that hasn't stopped the feelings of hatred that festered in many people. Can two such people - as opposite as 'North and South' - put their emotions behind them to forge a future together in the west?
A beautiful Christian love story.
BRIDES OF THE WEST - First, let me say that these stories are wonderful tales of what happens when a woman travels west to marry a stranger. I was truly impressed with the quality of both stories.
Kimberly Ivey's Grey Wolf's Bride is a sensual, romantic story of love lost and re-found as the heroine, Evangeline Payne, discovers the man she has contracted to marry is her long, lost love. Grey Wolf McKinnon is a hero to die for. Poignant and sensual, this story had me totally engrossed.
Billie Warren Chai completed the anthology with a super story entitled, The Chances Are Bride.
The heroine, Annabelle, is feisty, the hero, Sheriff Morrow, is sexy and the story is spicy. When she arrives to wed a stranger, Annabelle finds he has died and left her a saloon and brothel. The sheriff, sympathetic to her plight, comes to this Eastern Lady's aid. You'll love this rendition by Ms. Chai, whose prose is always pleasing, no matter the genre.
