If you love historical romances in the Wild West, you'll enjoy the Man from Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller. In the first book of the Stone Creek series, Sam O'Ballivan was a Texas Ranger going undercover as the schoolmaster in Haven, Arizona Territory. He was looking out for robbers who were after gold, when he met Maddie Chancellor, who had a hidden family secret. Things had gotten tense between Maddie and Sam, when he had a job to do, and her mercantile was caught up with financial troubles, especially when there was a family scandal in the county, and it affected everyone. More obstacles were thrown in their way, when they defeated the odds and fall in love. Lovely!
This was a nice and gentle Western romance to heat up any cold autumn afternoon. Haven in Arizona Territory was an ideal name for a small Texas town. Sam was an interesting character, who was a man on the mission. And Maddie was something mystical and unique as well. But I loved the pairing of both of them, when they worked on the same case to save lives, other than their own. Any Texas Ranger would make you hot and crave more of the entire series.
