His Prairie Duchess, Prairie Brides Book 3
Duncan Cooke had a problem. A really BIG problem. As the next Duke of Stantham, he would have power and position, a wealthy estate and the means to take care of his family for years to come. His father and mother could only dream something like this would happen to their eldest son and now their dream was a reality. So what was the problem? He had to get married in the next thirty-eight days or lose it all. Unfortunately, Duncan lived in Clear Creek. A place where there wasn’t a single female around for hundreds of miles.
Except one. Cozette Duprie could hunt, shoot a gun, and wield a bow and arrow like nobody’s business. Heck, she even helped her father take down a buffalo once. But the buckskin clad beauty had been living life disguised as a boy for so long, she had no idea how to be a girl. And worse, her father suddenly thought she ought to start living like one. But why? Why let everyone in Clear Creek know her secret? And if her father had any ideas of marrying her off, who on earth would want her? No one. For how could any man want a wife who couldn’t utter a word?
Would Duncan be able to beat the deadline and inherit the title and estate? Or be stopped by those wishing not only the title for themselves, but something much more precious?
Her Prairie Knight, Prairie Bride Book 2
Her Prairie Knight AudioNewly released from prison, the last thing Colin Cooke expected to see in Clear Creek was an angel. But there she was, just getting off the stage, and was of course everything an angel ought to be. Beautiful, of exquisite form, and with honey gold curls that bounced when she walked. Unfortunately, she walked straight into the arms of Mrs. Irene Dunnigan! The one person everyone avoided as best they could. At least until they needed something from the mercantile, then they had no choice. The self-righteous, cantankerous woman owned it! How was he going to get acquainted with the exquisite creature while Mrs. Dunnigan roamed about guarding her like some fire-breathing dragon? Perhaps with a little help from his brothers, he’d manage it. But the sort of help he got wasn’t exactly the kind he had in mind.
Belle Dunnigan hadn’t expected Clear Creek to be so remote. It was a far cry from Boston society and she soon learned how hard life out on the Oregon prairie could be. But it wasn’t prairie life that was hard. It was living with her Aunt Irene! The woman ruled with an iron fist and hated everyone. Especially the Cooke family. And unfortunately for Belle, the only decent men of the marrying kind within a hundred miles were the Cookes! With spinsterhood starring her in the face, what was she to do? Even worse, she was terribly attracted to Colin Cooke, the one man her aunt hated most of all.
Will love find a way? Or will it be no match for Mrs. Dunnigan? The bane of Clear Creek!
