THE LEGENDS OF LARAMIE COUNTY

The Reluctant Texas Rancher
THE RELUCTANT TEXAS RANCHER

Three generations of Cartwright women have run the Four Winds cattle ranch, and Liz Cartwright is being pressed to keep the tradition going. But Liz wants to continue her legal practice in town, not spend her time working the land. She needs a man to do the heavy lifting!

Travis Anderson is also a big-city lawyer, claiming to be back in Laramie County with a desire to reconnect with his ranching roots. Only Liz isn't buying it. When it turns out her old flame is being sued for malpractice, Liz agrees to assist him in exchange for help around Four Winds. Now all she has to do is ignore the incredible chemistry she's always shared with the sexy cowboy.

The trouble is, if Liz helps Travis win his lawsuit, he'll leave the ranch—just as she's learning the benefits of having him around. What's a poor cowgirl to do?

THE TEXAS RANCHER'S VOW

Jen Carson made a promise to herself: no more powerful, controlling husbands.

So why is she letting herself be tempted by Matt Briscoe, surely the most alpha male in Laramie County? She only agreed to stay at the Triple B to create a series of commemorative bronze plaques for Matt's father. Not end up sharing taboo kisses with six feet four inches of irresistible cowboy.

A cowboy who also happens to be her client's son. Talk about mixing pleasure with business! And now Jen's suddenly the reluctant keeper of a Briscoe family secret. Which thrusts her into an even more heated conflict with Matt. No matter how strong her feelings for the studly rancher, Jen has so many good reasons to keep him from becoming a permanent part of her life.

Too bad her heart won't listen to her head....

THE TEXAS RANCHER'S MARRIAGE
THE TEXAS RANCHER'S MARRIAGE

Few people in Laramie, Texas, know that Merri Duncan is actually the biological mother of her late sister's twins. Even fewer know that Chase Armstrong, and not his late brother, is their biological father. It's even news to Chase—and when he returns from military duty, he's determined to do the right thing by Merri, who's been raising the twins alone on the Broken Arrow ranch. It's time for a walk to the altar, for the sake of the children.

There's just one problem. Merri and Chase are, as they always have been, just friends—nothing more. Without love, their marriage can never be truly complete. Sticking it out may mean sacrificing their chances for future happiness. But maybe faith, hope and desire can bring these two newlyweds what they truly need. After all, it is the season of miracles.

THE TEXAS RANCHER'S FAMILY

This Land Is Not For Sale!

The Triple Canyon Ranch isn't just land to single mom Erin Monroe. It's a place her family has called home for generations, a place to raise her kids, a place where she's known love and loss. She's not about to hand it over to outsider Mac Wheeler, no matter how good the city slicker looks in those custom boots she made for him. He can find some other place for his wind farm!

Years ago, tragedy made Erin close off a part of her heart for good. Mac, with his smooth talk and smoother kisses, can't possibly be the one to heal that hurt. But as Erin learns more about Mac's past, she realizes there's more to him than meets the eye. Which makes holding on to the ranch more important than ever....
