Book 1, Wild Texas Nights
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Fancy Holleday has more nerve than the average cardsharp. No man can resist her smoky voice and violet eyes—and that includes the federal tinstar, Cord Rawlins.
Cord may have tracked her all the way to Texas to recover the U.S. minting plates that she stole, but the Nevada penitentiary is a long ride north, giving her plenty of time to charm, seduce, or just plain outsmart the handsome Texas lawman.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Cord Rawlins is sworn to bring renegades to justice—including the brazen lady train robber who turned the tables on him near Carson City.
Tracking Fancy down is Cord's job, but resisting her persistent persuasions is a matter of personal honor. With Fancy's life in his hands, Cord begins to wonder if his clever prisoner is really as shameless as she pretends. Could her wicked smile be hiding a desperate secret—one that can steal his heart?

"There wasn't a man alive she couldn't charm, seduce, or just plain outsmart." The plot of this book revolves around Fancy Holleday, a former prostitute, who is supposedly so amazing she can use all her wiles against any man and win. Yet, she is thinking the quote listed above as she is walking in freezing temperatures after her lover tried to kill her during their train robbery when she was no longer useful. Then, she was left to freeze to death by another outlaw she had saved from certain death at this very same train robbery. She may have been good at seducing men, but this character proved her idiocy within the first two chapters. The dialogue in this book is horrible, and it left me cringing and shaking my head. This is undoubtedly one of the worst books I've ever read. Fancy describes the Marshall's legs as "stumpy and bowed". Was I seriously supposed to get into this romance when now I think the love interest is short, bow-legged, and looks like a weathered cowpoke?
No your usual story... But really good
I loved the characters all of them, very well written, funny, romantic and entertaining, the plot was good... I will buy the entire series!
Romantic, funny, suspenseful, the characters are a delight! Loved this book, couldn't hardly put it down.
