Reporter Trish “Mac” McAllister will do anything to get the story of a lifetime . . . although a trip back to 1892 wasn’t anything she even remotely imagined.
After chasing a killer to a ramshackle building, Mac finds a weathered wooden chest. Opening it, she reaches for a pair of broken handcuffs . . . and suddenly finds herself aboard a nineteenth century locomotive with Pinkerton agent Jared Yates.
Jared’s fiancée was killed two years ago at the fashionable Chesterfield Hotel and he’s been searching for her murderer ever since. When his path crosses the odd Miss McAllister’s, he finds an unlikely ally—and lover—in his hunt for justice.
With the sole purpose of gaining information for her news story, Mac agrees to work with Jared. However, losing her heart to the sexy Pinkerton was never part of her plan. When the portal back to the future is opened for a moment in time, Mac has to decide whether a once-in-a-lifetime story is more important than a once-in-a-lifetime love. . . .

Made in heaven
The handsome mine superintendent desperately needs someone to care for his two young, motherless children, and Kate is delighted to take the job. But first the children capture her heart...and then the leaping attraction between sweet Kate and the smolderingly handsome Trev is too powerful to deny. Although Kate longs for the safety of his arms, will she ever be able to accept the danger of his life?
With This Ring, I Thee Flee...
High-spirited Annie Trevelyan leaves the mountains of Colorado behind, seeking fame and fortune, and no one is going to stop her. Not even Colin McBride, who's accompanying her West to make sure she goes to finishing school—and doesn't go astray! The lovely Annie's sure some timely flirtation will soon have Colin wrapped around her finger, but her coolly calculating kiss stokes unexpectedly passionate fires in them both. So now Annie must escape...because Colin's got marriage on his mind!
In watching over Annie, Colin was just doing a favor for a friend. Now that he's tasted the sweetness of Annie's lips, though, Colin wants her for himself—and that means a wedding! He'd once thought only a prim, docile wife would do, but now visions of a fiery wedding night with this independent hellion fill his mind. The trouble will be convincing Annie—and holding on to her long enough to do so!
They are a symbol of the Old West, from the tops of their ten-gallon hats to the tips of their spurs, and an image that sets women’s hearts to quivering. There’s nothing like a cowboy to stir a lady’s imagination—or to inspire love as boundless as the open range. In these four heartwarming romances from today’s top authors, four women set their sights on the cowboys of their dreams—and rope them in. It’s good old-fashioned romance at its finest…featuring men that no woman would put out to pasture.
He was pure trouble for an honest woman...
Mattie St. Clair knows that Clint Beaudry is a dangerous man the moment she sets eyes on him. Though she refuses the tall, dark, devastatingly handsome gunman a room in her boardinghouse, Mattie cannot turn him away a second time when he is carried to her door critically wounded. It's best if she just lets this troublesome stranger mend and move on- considering the unwanted feelings of desire he stirs up within her whenever he turns his deep, dangerous gaze her way.
She was more woman than a man could handle...
This beautiful, strong-willed widow does something special to the hardened ex-marshal with her tender, healing touch -- tempting Clint to reconsider his vow never to let another woman into his perilous life. Despite her stubborn independence, Mattie's barely restrained passion tells him that she's been too long without a good man at her side. And since she and her young son both are in desperate need of a hero, what choice does Clint have -- except to become one?
