THE TEXAS RANGER'S HEIRESS WIFE
Welsh recreates the atmosphere of 1800s Texas, from the struggles and dangers of ranching to the strong-willed people who loved the land, turning her standard western into an entertaining and solid story.
At gunpoint wasn’t how Brendan Kane wanted to wed Helena, but it was the only way she could get Brendan to the altar. As soon as Brendan saw Helena settled on the ranch she bought, he left and joined the Texas Rangers. In the three years since he abandoned her, Helena has built a thriving ranch. She is almost ready to sever their marital ties when he returns to keep her home safe from marauders and reclaim their love. Both are so fiercely independent and self-righteous it is not easy for Brendan to win Helena back. While the raiders become bolder, Helena must trust her husband or risk losing everything.
