CAN A SOUTHERN BELLE TAME
THE HEART OF A RUGGED COWBOY?
New Sweet Historical Romance Series from a Debut Novelist:
Readers will fall in love with the Colorado setting and
the spunky Southern belle who wants to claim it as her own.
Crystal Clark arrives in Colorado’s Yampa Valley amid the splendor of a high country June in 1892. After the death of her father, Crystal is relieved to be leaving the troubles of her Georgia life behind to visit her aunt Kate’s cattle ranch. Despite being raised as a proper Southern belle, Crystal is determined to hold her own in this wild land—even if a certain handsome foreman doubts her abilities.
Just when she thinks she’s getting a handle on the constant male attention from the cowhands and the catty barbs from some of the local young women, tragedy strikes the ranch. Crystal will have to tap all of her resolve to save the ranch from a greedy neighboring landowner. Can she rise to the challenge? Or will she head back to Georgia defeated?

It leaves you waiting and wanting book two.”
