THE MAN FROM STONE CREEK/A WANTED MAN
The Man From Stone Creek
There was trouble in Haven, Arizona, and Ranger Sam O'Ballivan was determined to sort it out. Badge and gun hidden, he arrived posing as the new school teacher, and discovered his first task was to bring the rough ranchers' children under control. So he started with a call on Maddie Chancelor, the local postmistress, and older sister of a young boy in need of discipline.
It never occurred to Sam that Maddie would turn out to be a graceful woman whose prim and proper stance battled with the fire in her eyes. Working undercover to capture rustlers and train robbers was a job that had always kept him isolated and his heart firmly in check – until now. But there was something about the postmistress that had him tempted to start down a path he'd sworn he'd never travel.
A Wanted Man
The past has a way of catching up with folks in Stone Creek, Arizona. So schoolmarm Lark Morgan and Marshal Rowdy Rhodes are determined to hide their secrets – and deny their instant attraction. That shouldn't be too hard, since each suspects the other of living a lie. Her too–fancy clothes and big–city ways inspire gossip all over town; his blond good looks and impudent grin belong to a man sporting a gunfighter's coat. But Rowdy and Lark have one truth in common: the very real dangers they face. Like the gang of robbers wreaking havoc on the railroad heading toward Stone Creek – the men Ranger Sam O'Ballivan expects Rowdy to nab. And as past and current troubles collide, Rowdy and Lark must surrender their stubborn pride to the greatest power of all – an undying love.
