TEXAS TENDER

Author(s): 

Greenwood's 12th and final book
in the Cowboy series is a sweet
romance with even pacing, witty
dialogue and an entertaining battle
of wills.

Now that Will Haskins is out of his family's long shadow, he plans to buy himself a bull and start his own ranch. Only two things stand in his way: the bull is missing and Miss Idalou Ellsworth. Will agrees to help Idalou and her brother find the bull, and soon his good nature and fast hand with a gun land him the job of temporary sheriff.

Attention from all the single ladies in town makes it hard to court the fiery Idalou. Plus, someone is trying to take over her ranch. Will has to find the culprit before blood is shed and before the uncompromising Idalou lands herself in a dangerous situation -- again! (Leisure, Jan., 320 pp., $6.99)
