When the beautiful, hot-tempered Bailey McShane bursts into the cattlemen's saloon, waving her shotgun and accusing the cowboys of theft, simmering tempers start to boil.

Bailey wants restitution for the fence posts that some low-down cowpokes burned to steal precious water from her land.

No self-respecting cattleman would be caught dead siding with a sheep rancher, like Bailey—and yet Zack Rawlins, the youngest, elected president of the Cattlemen's Association, can't resist this pint-sized wildcat with the big blue eyes. With drought-stricken Bandera County on the brink of range war, Zack faces political suicide if he can’t find a way to mend fences between Bailey and his cattle-ranching neighbors.

But what's a cowboy to do with an unpredictable woman who refuses to be tamed?

WILD TEXAS NIGHTS in series order:
Texas Outlaw
Texas Lover
Texas Wildcat
Fancy Holleday has more nerve than the average cardsharp. No man can resist her smoky voice and violet eyes—and that includes the federal tinstar, Cord Rawlins.

Cord may have tracked her all the way to Texas to recover the U.S. minting plates that she stole, but the Nevada penitentiary is a long ride north, giving her plenty of time to charm, seduce, or just plain outsmart the handsome Texas lawman.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Cord Rawlins is sworn to bring renegades to justice—including the brazen lady train robber who turned the tables on him near Carson City.

Tracking Fancy down is Cord's job, but resisting her persistent persuasions is a matter of personal honor. With Fancy's life in his hands, Cord begins to wonder if his clever prisoner is really as shameless as she pretends. Could her wicked smile be hiding a desperate secret—one that can steal his heart?

TEXAS OUTLAW: Fancy Holleday has more nerve than the average thief. No man can resist her smoky voice and violet eyes—including federal tin-star, Cord Rawlins. Cord has sworn to resist, but the Nevada penitentiary is a long ride north, and Fancy's wicked smile hides a desperate secret.

THE LAW AND MISS PENNY: When US Marshal Morgan Slater awakes, head throbbing, he believes a lovely lady's claim that he is her cousin and member of her family's medicine show. Mariah has good reason for misleading the hard-headed lawman hell-bent on shutting down her legitimate business—until cousinly banter turns into forbidden passion.
