THE CATTLEMAN'S UNSUITABLE WIFE
Genre: Historical Romance, America
The battle between sheepherders and cattlemen forms the compelling backdrop of Crooks' realistic western and provides a natural conflict between the strong-willed hero and heroine and a plotline to hold readers enthralled.
His father's murder stuns Trey Wells, leaving him with many unanswered questions and determined to find the killer. Trey's father had always allowed Zurina and her family to water their sheep on their land, and though she never felt kindly toward the them, she never feared them, until a band of cowboys shoots her father and slaughters their herd.
When Trey offers to help, Zurina refuses to trust him, but with her brother missing, she has little choice. A fragile bond gradually forms between Trey and Zurina, and though they should be enemies, love blossoms. Still, a killer is on the loose, and neither Zurina nor Trey realizes how close they are to death until it's almost too late. (HARLEQUIN, May, 280 pp., $5.99)
