Don’t mess with this Texan!
On the last leg of his tour of duty, Captain Garrett Lockhart is summoned home to Laramie, Texas, to handle an urgent family matter—a scandal that could destroy the enduring legacy of the Lockharts. Except it’s already being “handled” by Hope Winslow, a professional crisis manager.
Hope is also the beautiful single mother of the most adorable baby boy the Army doctor has ever seen. Garrett is resisting Hope’s efforts at damage control—and pushing her clearly defined boundaries. Too bad she can’t resist him…and fantasies of a future with her Lone Star soldier!
Welcome back to Laramie, Texas, for a five-part series about a brand new branch of the Lockhart family! Lucille Henderson Lockhart and her late husband, Frank Lockhart, both grew up on ranches in Laramie County. Now Lucille plans to return to her roots, and she wants her five children around her.
In this first story, Army physician Captain Garrett Lockhart agrees to help his mother weather a crisis at the family’s charitable foundation. But he does not agree with anything renowned scandal manager Hope Winslow wants to do!
The second book shows us that rancher Chance Lockhart is as bullheaded as the bulls he invests in. And sparks really fly when he goes toe-to-toe with rival Molly Griffin at Christmastime!
No one knows why cowboy Wyatt Lockhart and SPA-turned-riding-instructor Adelaide Smythe broke up years ago. In book three, we see there’s still a lot of history – and a set of twins – between the two of them.
In book four, cowgirl-chef Sage Lockhart returns to Laramie determined to retain her legendary independence, only to fall hard for Western-wear store owner Nicholas Monroe.
And finally, in book five Special Forces soldier Zane Lockhart believes in duty, honour and country above all else, but when he goes after returned fellow military officer Nora Caldwell, he finds much more is expected. I hope you enjoy reading this series as much as I loved writing it.
