From New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Lisa Mondello... a contemporary western romance featuring those hot Texas cowboys and the women who tame them in her popular romance series TEXAS HEARTS

Ever since Mitch Broader set foot in Texas, he dreamed of owning his own ranch. Now that he's bought a share in the Double T Ranch, he's one step closer to the dream. Then his past greets him in the form of a baby basket, complete with infant and birth certificate naming him as the father. He can't change diapers and work toward his dream at the same time.

When Sara Lightfoot, "Miss Hollywood" in Mitch's eyes, rescues him with her particular knack for handling his precocious son, he hires her on the spot as a temporary nanny. No matter how much Sara's dark eyes and warm heart make this bachelor think of making their arrangement permanent, she's made it perfectly clear she has other plans that don't include him or his dreams.

Sara Lightfoot never thought she'd return to her home on the reservation. Now she plans to go back to the reservation as a Native American storyteller, teaching the Apache children stories of their culture. She didn't expect Mitch Broader's sexy smile or job offer as a live-in nanny to derail those plans. After all she's been through to come home, can she open up her heart once again to love?

 Former NAVY SEAL, Ethan McKinnon, has spent ten years in the military trying to wash away the bad boy reputation that ultimately resulted in the death of his best friend Denny Newton. Unfortunately, that meant leaving behind everyone, especially Maddie Newton, Denny’s sweet younger sister. Ethan had faced sniper bullets and lived through black ops missions that he never should have come home from. But facing Maddie again, and gaining her forgiveness, is the most terrifying thing he’s ever had to do.

There was a time when Maddie Newton’s sun rose and set with Ethan McKinnon. But that was before her world shattered with her brother’s tragic death, and Ethan had left her to grieve alone while he played hero somewhere else in the world. Old motorcycle pieces in the garage have been a constant reminder of her brother’s unfinished life. Now that Ethan is back in Rudolph, he insists they work together to fulfill Denny’s dream of restoring the motorcycle and bringing it to Sturgis. But how can Maddie work alongside Ethan when he’s the last man on earth she wants to be near…and the only man she’s ever truly loved?

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?

Millionaire professor, Adam Brant is hiding from life. When
his broken engagement is plastered all over the papers and tabloids, he
retreats to the only place he's ever felt he belonged--his late grandmother's
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
odd jobs. When she finds out the new tenant in the old lighthouse is Adam
Brant, Megan believes she's found her ticket out. But as she gets to know the
sexy brainiac professor better, everything changes. Will she choose the
exclusive story or the man who has stolen her heart?

EXCERPT:

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."

Adam
joined her, keeping his distance as he stood near the windows. Whatever
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?

Megan's
smile faded. She looked at him out of solemn eyes and nodded. "Then I
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."

She
lifted that damnable chin of hers. "I don't believe you mean that, Adam
Brant." She grinned and disappeared down the stairwell.

Her
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.
