Wild West Christmas

Romance takes root in the lives of a Texas rancher's four daughters. Charlsey Ames loves being a cowhand until a dandy tenderfoot from the city begins opening her eyes to unexplored territory. Sharpshooter Lucy Ames takes a shot at love while traveling with a Wild West show. Horse-trainer Sarah Ames finds herself falling for a suspicious drifter with a gentle hand. Tracker Bessie Mae Ames is being trailed by a handsome yet guarded Texas Ranger. Will love corral these Lone Star ladies hearts this Christmas?

A Breed Apart
Carson smiled at Sarah’s enthusiasm. He’d never met a woman quite like her. The man who married her could well starve to death, but he’d sure have a capable partner to help him with his livestock.

“What are you grinning at?”

Carson schooled his expression and climbed onto Lobo Rojo. “It sure is a nice day.”

The gelding pranced in a circle as if excited about the chore ahead. Sarah scowled at Carson, making him want to laugh out loud. She sure was a touchy thing, but he admired her gumption and skill.

They rode side-by-side through the ranch yard. A door slammed behind them, and Sarah jumped. Carson looked over his shoulder to see Bess stomping toward them. “Just hold on there, Sarah. You’re supposed to be helping me make pies this morning.”

Sarah shrugged. “Carson needed my help.” She kicked the gelding, and he lurched into a run as if he’d just burst out of a rodeo chute.

“Sa—rahh!” Bess shoved her fists to her waist. “I declare that girl should have been a boy.”
