Good news, bad news—or both?
Mitch Smith is one happy rancher—at least, until a lady P.I. barges onto his property, bent on lassoing him into a family he didn’t know he had. It turns out that his business is built on money from the McCoys—the family with the biggest retail empire in the country. Suddenly his hard-earned success and his independence vanish, and he’s saddled with a million-dollar debt.
P.I. Alison Sullivan is counting on the hefty fee she’ll get once the rugged cowpoke is delivered to the wealthy Missouri clan. Since she’s practically down to her last dime, she’ll do whatever it takes to corral him. Coming from this fiery green-eyed redhead with determination to spare, that’s no idle threat…but she may have met her match in this stubborn rancher!
Christmas, Texas Style
Featuring Leah’s holiday novella: A Texan Under the Mistletoe
Lori Beth Whittaker comes home looking for tradition—and discovers that for the first time ever, the Hooper Creek Christmas festival has been cancelled. She’s determined the festival will go on, but one man stands in her way—Jackson Hooper, her former high school sweetheart and the man she left behind!
And also two other holiday novellas from two other fun authors:
Four Texas Babies by Tina Leonard
To save his parents’ ranch from falling into the wrong hands, Sam Johnston must marry. A quickie wedding to Lily Bartholomew brings more than he bargained for—including some shocking news about his new in-laws. But the biggest shock of all is that the baby on the way is actually four babies, set to arrive just in time for Christmas!
Merry Texmas by Linda Warren
Mariel Todd-Crandall and Grayson Crandall love their daughter, but since their divorce, it’s hard to find time to spend with Chloe. But Chloe’s sick of being ignored, and she knows her parents still love each other. So this Christmas she has a special plan, including a very special tree, that’s going to make Mom and Dad see that Christmas—and every day—should be spent as a family.
The Rich Boy
It’s the biggest story never told…
If Madeline Monroe can dig up enough dirt on the mysterious “Lost Millionaires,” now claiming to be real McCoys, it would prove once and for all that she’s a serious reporter and not just another pretty face. Unfortunately, one of the McCoys is an old flame, so getting her career on the fast track could mean getting burned again.
Alexander McCoy is tempted to turn to Madeline the way he did before. But the awful scandal he’s uncovered has to stay secret, and the glamorous blonde is the last person he can confide in—because she was the first to teach him about being betrayed…
He’s an officer…
When lawyer Lynn Hayes‘s career depends on keeping one of the long-lost McCoy heirs out of jail, she braces herself for a courtroom battle. But the defendant’s rigid sense of duty is the first enemy she faces-followed quickly by her unyielding attraction to the man.
And a misguided gentleman Major Rick Branigan‘s debt to his buddy shouldn’t cost him his reputation, or so says the long-legged beauty sent by the McCoy clan to bring him home to Dependable, Missouri. But when the U.S. Marine Corps is your family you don’t break their code of honor, even for a woman like Lynn Hayes…do you?
The Bad Boy
The only payback he wants is revenge.
Finding he’s the heir to a business empire should be a dream come true. For Cooper Anders, though, it’s about settling an old score. Soon the whole world will know how a high-and-mighty father disowned his son and forced him and his mother into a life of grinding poverty. Now nothing stands between bad-boy Cooper and satisfaction—unless it’s the beautiful woman with a very different plan.
Sara Barnes, vice president of Operations at McCoy Enterprises, has sworn to protect both the company and the family name. Yet the thrill she feels around Cooper—with his blue eyes, broad shoulders and troublemaking ways—says there’s more at stake than just her career. Torn between loyalty to the McCoys and longing for the newest member of the clan, she’s facing an impossible task—and terrified of what she might lose either way.
MacDougal Meets His Match
It was Brendan MacDougal‘s money—not his considerable charm—that caused his last affair to crash ‘n burn. The private and poised Dr. Rose Doeber, however, is no threat to either his position or his pride. Not only is her reputation as spotless as her hospital whites, but bitter experience has left Brendan immune to love. At least, that’s what he thinks right up until the night of the charity ball—when passion erupts and he suddenly recognizes the telltale symptoms.
A touch of fever, an erratic pulse, and Brendan’s vital signs all say it’s time to let down his guard. Behind the doctor’s bedside manner there’s a burning sensuality and an even bigger mystery. But what will he do when he discovers that Rose’s past isn’t perfect, her future is uncertain and even her name isn’t her own?
Welcome to Millionaire, Montana, where twelve lucky souls have won a multimillion-dollar jackpot…
And where one millionaire in particular has just… caught himself a fake fiancée!
Well, doggone it, if millionaire animal doc Jack Hartman didn’t go disappointing the disproportionately high female pet-owning population by popping the question to his plain-Jane partner, Melinda Woods. Why, the odds on the romance-resistant widower remarrying were longer than The Main Street Millionaires winning the lottery! Unless, of course, the venerable veterinarians are trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes by pretending to be betrothed. But sources say the slow dances and even slower kisses shared between the increasingly cozy colleagues simply cannot be contrived. Then again, the incriminating blush on bashful Melinda’s cheeks does confirm rumors of a secret crush. Still, skeptical minds want to know: when is the wedding?
The Rich Girl Goes Wild
He drove her wild…
When Wilder “Mac” MacDougal barged into Ashley Rivers‘ estate, her potently sexy houseguest became as big a threat to her well-managed life as his filthy mountain bike was to her mansion’s pristine floors! Long ago she’d chosen a safe existence, so how dare this charming rogue attempt to sweep her off her perfectly pedicured feet…?
On the lam from an outrageous scandal, Mac had no idea that a certain society-page sweetheart could touch his cynical soul. The reckless billionaire had forfeited his one chance at happiness, so why was he relishing each and every moment he spent rattling Miss Ashley’s prim and proper facade? Could it be that his family curse of loving only once was finally meant to be broken?
The Rich Man’s Baby
Swept off her feet one sun-dappled summer day, Juliet Jones had shared a fantasy-filled afternoon with the rich and powerful Harrison Rivers. But who did this take-charge tycoon think he was, waltzing back into her destitute life after two years to stake a claim on his “rightful heir”? The heartstoppingly handsome bachelor might still leave her breathless with desire, but she’d never let him steal away her beloved little boy!
Poised to take over the reins of his family’s multimillion-dollar corporation, Harrison wasn’t looking for any more complications. Yet it was impossible to deny the intense emotions this brown-eyed beauty and towheaded toddler stirred in his jaded soul. Could love alone bridge the gap between their starkly different worlds?
