ROMANCING THE COWBOY, March 2008

Silhouette Special Edition

He'd come home

Getting a job at the Rocking C Ranch was the best thing that could have happened to Sabrina Gonzalez and her younger nephew. Until her employers suspicious son came home. Now all she had to do was keep the handsome cowboy from uncovering her secret….

…to catch a thief

Jared Clayton needed to find out who'd been ferreting funds from his adoptive mother. Her new bookkeeper was the likeliest suspect, even if Sabrina didn't look like a common criminal. The soft-spoken beauty was awfully tempting, but Jared had already been down that road. Until she showed the tough-as-cowhide Texan something he didn't even know he possessed: his tender side.

Silhouette Special Edition

THE REBEL DOCTOR

Turning his life around, Luke Wynter had worked hard to become a doctor, to give back to the community he’d taken from years ago.  And he had been doing just fine…until Leilani Stephens snuck back into his life.  Twelve years ago she had made it clear that she no longer considered him a friend, let alone a love.  And he’d never been one to plead or beg.

Now he felt drawn to her all over again—yet felt that something was unsettled, unfinished.  Unsaid.

What had Leilani been hiding from him all these years?

Silhouette Special Edition

THE TEXAS TWO-STEP

Conservative businessman Jake Braddock had a heart that was all cowboy--and closely guarded.  Following his stepmother's death, he learned he'd be sharing custody of his five-year-old half sister with a sexy dancer--not his notion of the ideal mommy.

Chloe Haskell had barely begun playing mother to little Brianna when she found herself at odds with stuffy Jake, who seemed determined to fight her at every turn.  But the long-legged beauty soon got under the Texan's skin in more ways than he cared to admit.  Now Jake had to decide whether he was ready to let Chloe into his heart--and help him build the family he'd always wanted...
