From the #1 bestselling series and an award-winning author, Lucy Wallace married young andfor all the wrong reasons. After her parents died tragically, she needed to secure a future forherself and her younger sister. So, when her father's business partner, Will Arlington, offered to marry her and take her sister in as his own, she said yes.

It was a marriage of convenience, not love.

Lucy knew what was expected of her in exchange for Will saving her and her sister from ruin—to provide a nice home and family for him. But after ten years together, a child is the one thing Lucy was never able to provide for her husband.

Now they sleep in different rooms and lead separate lives. Until one day Lucy witnesses something that changes everything, and she fears her darkest secret may come to light. Because she's done the one thing that was forbidden from the moment she said yes. She fell in love with her husband.

But now that she's realized her true feelings, she can no longer pretend to be happy in her marriage. If Will can never love her, she'll have to make the hardest decision of her life.

To secure Will's happiness she must release him from a marriage he never wanted. But can she walk away and break her heart in the process?

FROM AN AWARD-WINNING AND #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR COMES A “HOT, SEXY, AND SINFULLY DELICIOUS HISTORICAL ROMANCE!”  

Just before Josephine’s eighteenth birthday, her brother kicks her out of their home and ships her off to Oklahoma to work for a widower and his two children. With no money and her parents gone, Josephine has no choice but to board the train to a strange new life.

When Jack Harrington put an ad in the paper for a young man to work his farm, the last person he expected to step off the train was Josephine Taylor—a spirited young woman from Manhattan. Jack believes Jo is behind the lies her brother told to get the job and tries to send her back to Manhattan. But always a survivor, Jo manipulates a deal to stay with Jack and his children for a month and prove her worth. Jack warns Jo he runs a strict home. If she disobeys he’ll slap her backside as red as a rooster’s waddle. Undeterred, Jo agrees to his terms.

Jack’s son, six-year-old Tommy, immediately takes to Jo, desperate for a mother, but sixteen-year-old Ruby is apprehensive and territorial, which is exacerbated when her beau turns his eyes to Jo. Stubborn and willful, Jo tests Jack’s limits. But soon the struggle between them turns passionate. Jo fights against her new and strange yearnings for Jack, but her willpower weakens with every battle they forge.

Does Jo have the courage to fight against the restraints of society and Jack’s guarded heart and fall into the intoxicating embrace of her truest desires...

From bestselling author Sharon Sala comes the trilogy following Leticia Murphy on her adventures that take her from the Kansas Territories to Denver City, and from reluctant saloon girl to happily married woman.
Whippoorwill: Leticia Murphy never planned on becoming a saloon girl. But the Kansas Territories are a difficult place, and Lettie, orphaned at the age of twelve, had to do whatever it took to survive. When she comes to the rough-and-tumble town of Lizard Flats, she wants nothing more than a second chance—although she knows the likelihood of getting one is slim. Until, that is, a stranger comes to Lizard Flats, a preacher from the East, arriving to perform a wedding. But the man of God isn't quite as holy as he seems. And when he turns up dead in Lettie's bed, it sets off a chain of events nobody could have predicted that will ultimately lead to change not just for Lizard Flats, but for Lettie herself.
The Amen Trail: After the death of one of her clients in embarrassing circumstances, frontier saloon girl Leticia Murphy flees with erstwhile town drunk and handyman Eulis Potter. Eager to forget her colorful past and find redemption, Lettie is determined to turn over a new leaf, and Eulis is happy to follow her. The couple impersonates a preacher and his wife on the road from the Kansas Territories to Colorado. Along their journey, they marry couples, baptize babies, and perform burials. They manage to fool most people they meet into seeing them as upright Christians, but that doesn't stop them from getting into trouble, and falling in love. But when their true identities are discovered, Letty and Eulis must rely on each other, and the frontier toughness they've both had to develop in their previous lives to survive.
The Hen House: Once a frontier saloon girl, Leticia Murphy Potter is now happily married, and her husband, Eulis, couldn't be more overjoyed to call her his wife. The happy couple have become upstanding citizens of Denver City, and have just begun to build a home there together. But Letty's trials and tribulations aren't over, and trouble is brewing just over the horizon. Just when she believes her life couldn't possibly get better, it begins to get worse. Soon Letty and Eulis must work together to overcome new threats—both to their well-being and to their relationship.
