Tylers of Texas.
Abstract:
In the spring of 1885, seventeen-year-old Jessilyn Harney finds herself orphaned and alone on her family's homestead. Desperate to fend off starvation and predatory neighbors, she cuts off her hair, binds her chest, saddles her beloved mare, and sets off across the mountains to find her outlaw brother Noah and bring him home. A talented sharpshooter herself, Jess's quest lands her in the employ of the territory's violent, capricious Governor, whose militia is also hunting Noah--dead or alive. Wrestling with her brother's outlaw identity, and haunted by questions about her own, Jess must outmaneuver those who underestimate her, ultimately rising to become a hero in her own right.

Summary

Summary

Rose Landro is on the run. Seeking refuge at the Rimrock Ranch, she is finally ready to claim the land her granddaddy left her and make a fresh start. But her return is rife with controversy when cattle begin disappearing-and a handsome menace named Tanner McCade starts watching Rose a little too closely. Could the new cowhand be connected to the men she's hiding from? Or is there another reason the rugged stranger is shadowing her every move?

He's a man ready to fight boldly for his future . . .

There's a secret in Rose Landro's eyes, a mystery that Special Ranger Tanner McCade is determined to uncover. Even if the beauty isn't behind the cattle rustling he's investigating, she's way too skittish, and all too exquisite for Tanner to just let slide past his piercing gaze. Then he discovers a vulnerability in Rose that has him aching to protect her--and longing to possess her. . . .

Publisher's Weekly Review

Dailey continues the saga of the Tyler family and Rimrock Ranch with this addictive sixth installment (after Texas Fierce). At 14, Rose Landro had to flee to Mexico after killing the man who killed her grandfather. Twelve years later, she's forced to kill again, and Rose decides that facing the law in Texas is preferable to certain death at the hands of a vengeful Mexican drug cartel. Besides, she's now old enough to claim her grandfather's legacy, a small piece of land that lies between Bull Tyler's cattle ranch and the nearest reliable water source. Bull now holds the deed to the land. Girded for a fight with BUll, Rose encounters Tanner McCade, an undercover lawman working for rival rancher Ferg Prescott. After Ferg offers to help in her battle with Bull, Tanner starts falling in love with Rose, but he may be in for a few surprises, because he doesn't know the half of what she's capable of. Satisfying as a standalone, this installment will also delight fans of the series. Agent: Richard Curtis, Richard Curtis Assoc. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
