Maggie Shayne wins our hearts with THE LITTLEST COWBOY (4), an adorable baby left on the doorstep of a handsome rancher who doubles as his Texas community's local sheriff. Hot on the baby's trail, however, is his beautiful aunt, determined to keep her sister's scuzzy lover from claiming the child. In addition to the suspenseful plot, Ms. Shayne creates a bevy of striking characters who will hopefully star in their own books in the future.
