GIVE ME A TEXAS RANGER
Readers couldn’t ask for a finer quartet of heroes than those created for these wild-as-the-West novellas that capture the spirit of the Texas Rangers and the women who tame them.
Thomas’ nurse Annalane Barkley proves she’s a real “Ranger’s Angel” when she and lawman Wynn McCord are trapped by outlaws. They escape and when the sweet beauty shares a kiss, Wynn realizes he just can’t leave her. He has to make her his own, but first the outlaws must be brought to justice. Few have Broday’s ability for “Understanding Texas.” Ranger Stoney Burke believes he’s upholding a promise to his best friend when he comes to Texanna Wilder’s aid, rescuing her from an unwanted suitor. The only way to protect her is to marry her. In “One Woman One Ranger,” Miranda puts a little-known piece of Texas history into her story of a feisty saloon owner and the ranger who must first take her into his custody and then claim to have married her. Undercover Ranger Thomas Longbow is in town to expose an illegal whiskey ring when he runs into saddlemaker Laney O’Grady. The little lady is making a special pair of boxing gloves for a renowned fighter and gets herself into “A Perfect Match” by Pace. (ZEBRA, Jul., 400 pp., $6.99)
