Books By Tina Leonard

Cowboy Be Mine

What gets a proud cowboy and a woman who dreams of true love to the altar?

A. A well-thrown lasso
B. Bribery
C. Two shotguns
D. A baby

In Cowboy Be Mine, the correct answer is D. Actually, that's not quite true, either. It was the fence-sitters who contrived to get Bailey and Michael together.

That's right. Fence-sitters.

Named Curly, Chili, and Fred. These gnarly ranch hands plan to spend their retirement being . . . well, retired. Until they're sitting on the fence between Michael's and Bailey's properties one day and notice that more than a fence seems to be keeping Michael and Bailey apart. Of course, they have no way of knowing that it's a baby (or twins, but never mind that right now!) keeping the two apart, but they do know that standard tactics such as lassoes, bribery, and shotguns won't work on this precarious situation.

Cagey old fellows. Roof-worms are the best way to get two stubborn people together in Fallen, Texas, of course!

A Match Made in Texas

In a tiny Texas town, the old folks were determined to trigger a population explosion!

And sexy out-of-towner Jake Madden was the answer to their prayers. No woman could resist his masculine appeal. Plus, he had 'commitment' written all over him: a little boy to raise and a hankering to set down roots. A wife raffle was just the solution to their population problem.

Except Mary van Dooorn, the elected - only eligible - 'intended,' didn't cotton to that. With the responsibility of six younger sisters, she'd never known romance and wasn't looking for any. But relentless matchmaking, Jake's all-male pursuit and her own feminine need were a hard combination to resist in such a small town. She found herself wanting Jake and a life with him, but was she more than a convenient candidate for wife?

When Jill McCarthy's world falls apart, she grasps at the straw of a nondescript ad that reads "Wanted: Housekeeper for Ranch House."
