COLORADO COURTSHIP (4) by Cheryl St. John & Debra Ullrick: Violet Kristofferson is blackmailed into leaving her home in “Winter of Dreams” by St. John. She takes a job as cook and housekeeper for undertaker Ben Hammond and his sister, and must deal with her uncomfortable feelings connected to his occupation. In Ullrick’s “The Rancher’s Sweetheart,” Sunny Weston convinces her uncle to give her a job on his ranch as a cowhand so she can earn the money to keep her own ranch going. She finds her uncle’s right-hand man, Jedidiah Cooper, an unfortunate distraction. The beauty and difficulty of a Colorado winter is brought to life in this pair of delightful stories featuring two appealing heroines.
