Paid to marry Beatrix Northroupe for one month so that she can gain rightful ownership of her family’s stud farm, Cord Ranner, determined to head for the hills as soon as possible, finds himself unable to leave this spirited English beauty who needs his protection.
WILD HORSES COULDN’T DRAG HIM AWAY . . .
For Cord Tanner it’s a straight business deal: get paid to be Beatrix Northroupe’s husband for a month so she can finally obtain the deed to her family’s stud farm, Prairie Rose. Once the money’s in his hand, he plans to get as far away from Revolt, Kansas, as a fast horse can take him. But then Cord can’t help but see there’s more to Trixie than English manners and a pair of clear blue eyes. For starters, she’s reckless, courageous, and one hell of a kisser . . .
It took less than a month for Beatrix to realize being married to Cord Tanner would be more than she bargained for. It isn’t just his stubborn-as-a-mule attitude, or the smoldering way he looks at her. There’s something about Cord that makes it hard for a woman to keep her mind on business. Soon it becomes clear there are others interested in her family’s ranch as things begin to get downright dangerous. Fortunately she’s got a man by her side, even if it’s a matter of convenience. Cord Tanner may be a down-on-his-luck cowboy, but he’s also proving to be just what she needs . . .
