LONE STAR DADDY (2) by Stella Bagwell: Betrayed by her lover, pregnant and alone, senatorial aide Alexa Cantrell seeks sanctuary at her family's ranch. While her mother and brother are away, new manager Jonas Redman spends nights at the ranch house -- and though she's still hurting, Alexa is drawn to him. But Jonas isn't who Alexa thinks he is. He's an undercover Texas Ranger, investigating a cattle-rustling operation in the area. Once the case is wrapped up, he'll be gone. Some portions of the story (Jonas on the job, for instance) are handled quite well, but others (such as Jonas delivering Alexa's baby and his reasons for not getting involved) are terribly cliched.
