Synopsis

Books 1 & 2 of the Willow Creek Series in one volume. (Historical Western Romance)

The Lawman 

On the run from her ex-lover...
Jilted by a no-show husband...
And now mistaken for a whore in the Diamond Back saloon...

Abigail Thornton doesn't think things can get any worse. That is until a single slap to a man's face starts a barroom brawl that lands her in the last place she expected to be. 

Town Marshal Morgan Avery wants nothing more than to wash away the trail-dust and sleep for a week, preferably with a soft, willing woman by his side. Instead, he gets Abigail Thornton, all one hundred pounds of her thrust at him seconds before a fist connects with his face. Breaking up the fight takes more effort than he wants to admit and when the last man falls he finds Abigail still standing and not looking the least bit contrite. Throwing her into the town jail for the night would salve his wounded pride and then he will let her go. Or that was the plan.

When morning comes he finds himself oddly reluctant to do so. Miss Thornton is hiding something and he aims to find out what, even if he has to bed her to do so. But will one night in her bed be enough? 

 

The Outlaw

Sarah Hartford always dreamed of a grand adventure. She just never expected to find it in the arms of an outlaw. 

When her father's bank is robbed, Sarah doesn't make the gunslingers escape easy. Putting her own safety behind those she hopes to protect backfires when she's kidnapped by one of the escaping men. Now her only hope for survival lies with the same arrogant man who laughed at her while staring down the barrel of her gun. 

Colton Avery spent months planning the perfect heist, every detail fine tuned and executed with precise timing. Nothing could go wrong. That is until he comes face to face with a determined woman holding a shotgun. She aimed at his head and never flinched when she took a shot at him. He wanted her the moment the smoke cleared and he saw her face. 

Robbing the bank, and handing over the gang of notorious outlaws to US Marshals, would be routine and boring. Sarah Hartford made it anything but. Taming the woman who stole his heart the instant he saw her was a challenge he was more than willing to take on. All he has to do now is escape the gang of outlaws he just double-crossed, hideout from an Indian raiding party and elude the town marshal who just happens to be his little hellion's new fiance.
