Synopses & Reviews
One special lady will help this cowboy lawman win his father's ranch -- and steal his heart in the bargain....
Kade McKettrick's got five mail-order brides-to-be camped out at the local hotel, all more than eager to provide him with the heir that will win him the Triple M ranch. But Kade, the newly appointed marshal, has his hands full with a troublesome outlaw gang. Why, then, is he so easily distracted by pretty "Sister Mandy" -- who most assuredly is not the nun she claims to be?
On the run from her outlaw stepfather, Mandy Sperrin hides beneath her solemn disguise, and vows to keep her wild, passionate nature from the respectable citizens of Indian Rock. Yet when the handsome marshal makes it clear that he wants her, Mandy gives in to her heated desires....
Despite the secrets that may lure them both perilously close to danger, Kade knows that proposing marriage may be the only way to keep this spirited woman by his side. But are her ties to a shadowed past more threatening -- and closer -- than Kade knows? His strong, sensual embrace may charm Mandy's wild heart -- but will she surrender to a lifetime of his deep and powerful love?
In a trilogy begun with the New York Times bestselling High Country Bride, bestselling author Linda Lael Miller brings readers back to the Triple M ranch--where the only thing hotter than the tensions flaring between these brothers is the passion they feel for their women. All Mandy Sperring has ever wanted is to be a lady. But life has dealt her quite a different hand--on the run from her outlaw stepfather, Gig Curry, Mandy finds herself all alone in the little town of Indian Rock, Arizona, disguised as a nun. Kade McKettrick needs a wife in order to inherit the Triple M. And while six prospective mail-order brides have descended on Indian Rock expecting to marry a McKettrick--any McKettrick--the only woman who really catches his eye is the pretty little nun staying in the local hotel. Only a twist of fate could bring this unlikely duo together, and it comes in the shape of Gig Curry's outlaw gang, bent on bringing down the McKettricks and the Triple M. When circumstances leave Kade wearing the local marshal's badge, he must meet the gang head-on if he is to save both the Triple M and the woman he hopes to make his bride.
In the second novel of Miller's McKettrick Cowboys trilogy, local marshal Kade McKettrick must choose between five mail-order brides who are all willing to produce an heir that will win him his father's ranch. But only one special lady steals his heart. Original.
is a novel from early in my career, and it was originally shorter than many of my other historical romances. Now, Im delighted to be able to share this brand-new edition with you. Ive taken the opportunity to expand Willow
to include the subplots, love scenes, and deeper characterization that are possible with a longer book. I hope you enjoy reading this retelling as much as I have enjoyed visiting these characters and this story once again.In 1883, the railroad had only recently come to Montana Territory, and outlaws still lurked in the hills. Willow Gallagher, who spent her early childhood in an outlaw camp until her father finally found her, is torn by divided loyalties. Newly married to handsome railroad baron Gideon Marshall, she finds fiery passion in Gideons embrace, until she discovers he is on a mission . . . a mission to capture Willows outlaw brother, Steven. Now Willow must choosebetray her brother, or risk the love she has found with Gideon, the love she has dreamed of all her life, to save Steven. It is a choice that could break her heart. . . .
May you be blessed,
