Book 6 in the contemporary western romance series TEXAS HEARTS...


Time was running out for Cole Rivers. He may not have been born in
the United States, but Texas was the only place he'd ever called home.
He had just weeks to find the proof he needed, or risk being deported.
All he needed was a little help from the daughter of the local doctor
who'd treated him years ago. He didn't count on Dr. RaeAnne Daniels
being so difficult to work with. But despite his own troubles, and the
distraction this beautiful woman became with each passing day, how could
he leave her in her time of need?

RaeAnne Daniels never knew why it was so important for her father
had set up his medical practice on the border of Mexico instead of
working in a thriving Texas city like the one she practiced in. But
when her father died and left RaeAnne in charge of cleaning up his
office, she found it hard to leave the border town and people she'd
always resented growing up. Cole Rivers had been her father's patient
and he had problems of his own. The break-ins at her father's clinic
and the drugs being stolen were her problem. But that didn't stop her
from falling for the devastatingly handsome cowboy with a heart of
gold...or stop him from showing her how wonderful true love could really

TEXAS HEARTS and Lisa Mondello's other western series, DAKOTA HEARTS. 

 **From NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling Author Lisa Mondello**

The story of the South Dakota McKinnon clan continues in HIS DAKOTA BRIDE, book 5 of DAKOTA HEARTS.

Her heart had always belonged to Wade McKinnon...

When single mother, Skylar Barnett, came to South Dakota, she thought her life was just beginning. Newly pregnant, she waited for the love of her life, Wade McKinnon, to join her so they could start their life near his family. But her joy quickly shattered after learning Wade was presumed killed during a tsunami that hit the small Asian island they'd both worked on in the Peace Corp. She'd spent the last four years making peace with her decision to marry a man she didn't love so her baby would have a father. But marrying the wrong man when her heart belonged to Wade was the biggest mistake of her life.

Secrets and circumstance kept them apart...

No one in Wade McKinnon's life knew that his work with the Peace Corp. was just a cover for his real job in a secret military agency. Not even Skylar, the woman he'd fallen hard for the moment he'd laid eyes on her. But when his mission in Asia suddenly became too dangerous and all agents in the field were ordered to disappear, using the tragic events of the tsunami on the island where they'd met seemed like the only way to keep Skylar and their unborn baby safe until the situation cooled down. As much as it killed him, Wade stepped aside when he learned Skylar had moved on with another man. But now that she's free, he's determined to do everything he can to win back her love and claim the life they'd dreamed of sharing.

lighthouse in Briny Cove, Florida. He vows to live in seclusion away from nosy
reporters, money-hungry women and people who can't accept him for who he is.

Ambitious wanna-be journalist, Megan O'Conner is stuck in
Briny Cove, living with her family, struggling to finish her degree and working

exclusive story or the man who has stolen her heart?


Megan stayed where she was and gazed out at the water. "The view is awesome. You can see for miles. It's so beautiful up here."

had just happened between them had left him shaken and trembling with
need. He had to get Megan O'Conner out of the lighthouse and back to the
mainland as quickly as possible.

"Are you ready to go now?" he asked her quietly.

She turned toward him and smiled. "You trying to get rid of me?"

"Yes." If he didn't, he might do something foolish. Like kiss her. And then what?

guess it's time I left." She headed toward the door.

Adam caught her arm and twirled her around to face him. "Don't come back to the lighthouse, Megan. I don't want you here."

Brant." She grinned and disappeared down the stairwell.

words and smile ignited a powerful exhilaration inside Adam's chest, and
at that precise moment, he knew he was in trouble. Very deep trouble.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Mondello, book 6 of the popular DAKOTA HEARTS western romance series.

Ian McKinnon was just getting steady on his feet, looking forward to the opening of the Wounded Veterans Center and a big McKinnon wedding celebration, when tragedy struck again. The soldier who'd saved his life while in the military has died. He's charged with his most important mission: find his friend Carlos's family in Mexico or become guardian and raise Carlos's children. The only mandatory stipulation of his friend's will was that Ian live under the same roof with Abby Townsend, a firefighter from Carlos's firehouse. Abby knew the kids well and she could help ease them all through the transition of becoming a family. Okay, so Ian may not be daddy material, but he'd grown up with a whole lot of McKinnons running around. He could handle the kids just fine. The beautiful Abby Townsend was another story.

Abby took one look at Ian and shook her head with utter disbelief. What were her dear friends thinking by naming a man whose nickname was "The Hazard" as guardian of their three small children? She only needed to spend one year in Ian's house in South Dakota. She had to either find Carlos's family, or convince Ian that she was the better person to raise the children. Abby knows how hard it is to lose someone you loved. She'll be there to protect the children in any way she can. But can she protect her heart from falling in love with a man known for taking too many risks...and risk heartbreak again?
