The Secret Fire



In the midst of the vast, windswept Texas plains stands a ranch wrested from the wilderness with blood, sweat and tears. It is the shining legacy of Thomas McBride to his five living heirs. But along with the fertile acres and herds of cattle, each will inherit a history of scandal, lies and hidden lust that threatens to burn out of control.

Chase knows he has no legitimate claim to the Circle M. After all, his father made it painfully clear he wants nothing to do with his bastard son or the Comanche girl he once took to his bed. But Chase has his own reasons for answering Tom McBride's deathbed summons. He has a job to do as a Texas Ranger, and a woman to protect—a woman whose sweet innocence gives him new faith that love born in the darkest night can face the dawn of all his tomorrows.

4. "The Loner" von Evelyn Rogers

ISBN: 0-843-94880-9

Erschienen: 2004  bei Leisure Historical Romance


As first born, Stone had always tried to do the right thing, but that hadn't stopped his brother and sister from turning on him. And it hadn't kept the woman he loved from turning him down. In the years since, Stone had learned to go it alone; a gambler was better off that way. He'd returned to the Circle M for the money promised in his father's will, not for the family he'd once fought to protect, and certainly not for the vulnerable beauty his heart could never forget.
