Everybody else was doing it, so why not him?
Sam Standish has always prided himself on being a rough and rugged frontier saloonkeeper. Just because he likes to keep things neat and tidy, appreciates good home cooking, and thinks a grandfather clock would be a fine addition to any home does NOT mean he’s the settling down type. But he sends away for a mail-order bride anyhow, expecting that once she arrives, his life will be as boring as plain toast.
Julia Frost is a whirlwind in pink cotton who comes from a long line of people that have met early, gruesome, and unfortunate ends. But she’s determined to make Sam happy…even if she has to drag him there kicking and screaming. Life in Haskell is everything Julia has ever longed for. She even finds a bosom friend in Bebe Bonneville.
But chaos breaks loose when Julia and Bebe find a clue that indicates robber’s loot is hidden in the saloon. And Sam’s predictable world is turned on its head when Hubert Strong comes to him for help in wooing and winning Bebe. Will one set of sweethearts be able to help the others start a new life together (possibly with loot!) or will Rex Bonneville put an end to more than one romance?

Laura Kincade is a nerd, and proud of it. She designs rockets, she hunts for dinosaur fossils, and she knows who she is. So when sizzling cowboy Ted Flint bumps into her at a party—literally, with messy results—she instantly feels out of her depth. Could a guy like Ted really be interested in a girl like her? It certainly seems like it when he invites her out to his ranch to take a look at his bone.
*ahem* His DINOSAUR bone.
Ted has never met anyone like Laura. She’s funny, smart, and adorable. So why is she playing so hard to get? He has a harder time getting her to say yes to a date with him than he has digging up the fossil Laura discovers on his ranch. If not for ice cream, all would be lost.
But when the value of the fossil leaks to the community, Ted suddenly finds himself fighting to keep it and the ranch, and Laura too. The Bonnevilles will stop at nothing to claim the discovery for themselves, and Ted and Laura find themselves in danger of losing the battle, and each other too.
A boy… A girl… A dinosaur… And love.
