Five brides for five brothers…at least that’s the deal the Daltons have struck with their boys. Each son must marry in order to inherit a piece of the ranch they love so much.

Hank Dalton yearns to run his own spread, but more than that, he longs for a woman to call his own. Paradise Valley is far from civilization, though, and that makes finding the perfect match difficult. Not many women like being two hours from a major supermarket or mall.

Charlotte Halton is on the run. Poor choices have left her with scars—in and out. After her powerful boyfriend left her drugged and set their apartment on fire, she’s just trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Abandoning all she knows seems like the best decision she’s ever made. At least until her car breaks down in the middle of cattle country.

When a pretty little woman is delivered into Hank’s hands, he believes it was fate that kept him from joining his brothers for a “wife hunt” in the city. But she’s leery of men and hiding something dark. Can Hank tap into the attraction they both feel before she drives away?

When the new ranch hand the Daltons hire asks Cash for assistance, he’s all in—until he learns it involves a Mexican daughter and a marriage license. His first instinct is to run the other direction. But he figures he needs a wife and she needs help, so it’s a damn good bargain.

Maya Perez is desperate to get out of her home city and into the States, where she can make a better life. When her only living family member, her father, sends for her to come to Texas, she’s met by a gorgeous cowboy and an offer of marriage.

Cash figures being hitched to a woman is no different than taking care of cattle, but his bride is driving him crazy. Between her sharp tongue and soft curves, he’s over his head. Finding common ground might be the only way to tame his little bride.

Shelby has pulled up roots—again—and taken her funds from her latest divorce settlement to open a candy shop in Vixen, Texas. She wants better for her son than new men parading through his life because his mom can’t get herself together. The small town is the perfect place to avoid male interest—mainly because there aren’t many available.

When Witt spies the curvaceous new candy shop owner, he suddenly has a sweet tooth. Trouble is, so does every other man in the vicinity, including his brother Kade. Shelby seems to crave male attention, and they flock to her like bees to honey-flavored hardtack, though nothing she says or does seems genuine. Who is she really?

Burning to uncover her mysteries, Witt spends so much time in town that the ranch suffers. Afraid another man will snag her up, Witt sweeps her and her son away.

The Daltons feel like the family she’s never had and the gorgeous cowboy demands entry to her heart, but the fortress she’s built has deep foundations. Will she ever be ready to give her whole self?

Beck Dalton is one of the most arrogant, immature and infuriating men Sabrina has ever met. But he also happens to be the father of her child. Trouble is, he doesn’t know it. Over a year ago she made the mistake of giving Beck a second chance—then a third. Mostly because he made her fire burn hotter and brighter than with any other man. But having toe-curling romps in the hay with him didn’t make her stop wanting to bash him over the head with a large, heavy object.

The part-time school teacher sent Beck into fits of insanity—right before she drove off with his clothes and truck, leaving him naked in the middle of nowhere with nothing but his guitar and cell phone. At least he’d had something to pass the time. Now the woman he’s never forgotten has walked back into his life. And she has a secret.

What she’s holding has blue eyes that scream “Dalton boy,” and there’s no denying the infant’s parentage. When Beck not only discovers he’s a daddy but his child and the mother are homeless, his honor forces him to do the right thing even as he wants to throttle Sabrina.

She’ll let Beck help her get on her feet, but that doesn’t mean she has to like him, does it? Too bad her body remembers every breathless moment spent with the rugged cowboy.

When the Daltons find the herd outgrowing their numbers, they have no choice but to hire a ranch hand. Kade, sent to pick up the hand named Ryan, is happy to have a bachelor comrade to hang around. Being the only unmarried Dalton boy is hard to swallow. But once he sees Ryan is really a little redheaded spitfire with curves for miles, his instinct is to hightail it.

After Ryan’s father died and her mother took off for a life of her own, Ryan grew up fast—and strong. Anything men could do, she did better, faster and longer. So Kade telling her she can’t only makes her more determined to prove herself. She’s also mad enough to spit nails—when she’s not burning for the hunky cowboy, that is.

While they thoroughly dislike each other, they must work together to keep the ranch running smoothly. Kade’s desires for Ryan are sloping toward dangerous, and she’s had enough of the big cowboy getting in her space and not showing what he’s made of. But as a natural disaster strikes the ranch, they’re forced together. Question is, who will come out on top?

When your boyfriend hands you the gift addressed to his other girlfriend…

Well, that’s a doozy of a Christmas downer. Rather than cry or pout, Annabelle’s determined to make a new tradition and what better place than Paradise Valley, Texas on a ranch, where a large family and a happily married college girlfriend are ready to brighten her spirits.

Case Dalton’s been living and working on his uncle’s ranch alongside his cousins for two years now. In the typical holiday spirit, chaos breaks out and he’s designated chief hospitality officer, seeing to a curvy gal who has all the right moves, if only she’d get into the holiday spirit… or him.

When Case lays on some of that down-home Christmas charm, Annabelle can’t help but be smitten by how sweet and attentive he is. Horse-drawn wagon rides, hot cocoa in front of a roaring fire, and her favorite holiday movies go a long way toward creating that new tradition she so craves. But when too much rum hits her eggnog, she finds herself standing beneath the mistletoe with Case poised to do the honors. What she never expects is learning a brand new meaning of holiday cheer.

Family ties run deep in the heart of Texas. Is there room in Paradise Valley for three more Daltons?

Ford Dalton’s luck seems to have run out. The job he loved on the rodeo circuit left him with a back injury, and he was replaced. That’s about the time his fiancée broke things off, leaving him wondering about the next step in his life.

When a frantic call for help comes from his family to come fight a wildfire in Paradise Valley, he and his brothers jump in the truck and head out. After all, what’s family for?

Too bad Ford seems to be the only Dalton with no clue how to smile.

Ford can’t get his mind off the sultry blonde with a passion for horses rivaling even his own. But flirting’s as far as he’ll go. Okay, so maybe he’s up for a date under the stars in the bed of his truck…

Family ties run deep in the heart of Texas. Is there room in Paradise Valley for three more Daltons?

Lilah Sherman was a geeky teen who loved sci-fi—and Easton Dalton. He even kissed her at a Halloween party, but she found out later it was a bet. Now he’s back and working alongside her brother as a hand on his uncle’s ranch in Paradise Valley and whoooeee, is he smokin’ hot. And it turns out he wants to kiss her again, not that she’ll ever let him—or let him live it down that he saddled her with the nickname Lizard Lilah.

Easton’s had some hang-ups recently over a pretty bartender who finally gave in to his advances, only to receive the cold shoulder afterward. But men with a stinging pride know when to walk away, and this cowboy is putting his boots on new soil. The land is all he needs from here on out. At least until he spots a beautiful filly with a familiar hint of strawberry in her blonde hair and a set of lips he’s hell-bent on kissin’.

Each time Lilah lands in Easton’s arms—or lap—she struggles to keep her head on straight, but the cowboy with the wicked gleam in his Dalton blue eyes keeps ripping her off-balance. Running from his advances is the only way to go, especially when he’s only helping out his relatives and destined to leave her brokenhearted. But Easton can be very persuasive, and he knows just how to pluck the strings of this not-so-gawky woman’s heart.

Family ties run deep in the heart of Texas.

Who knew that having the Dalton looks—dark hair and blue eyes—would deem Justus as a trustworthy person? That’s exactly what happens when a friend of the family turns up on the Daltons’ ranch and thrusts a baby at him to watch because nobody else is home. After she leaves, he realizes he doesn’t even know her name—or how to care for an infant.

Tuesday is one of the most sought-out hairstylists in three counties, and she’s got problems. Not only is she raising her irresponsible teen sister’s baby as her own but she is shorthanded in the babysitter department. And boy does she dump a surprise on that cute cousin of the Daltons’ when she asks him to watch the infant so she doesn’t lose her client.

Justus finds himself helping out the busy single mom several times, and he can’t help but admire more than her sexy curves. Tuesday is mouthy and knows what she wants, two things his momma would claim as his traits too. She’s looking to provide a home and a good life for the child she’s adopted, but Justus makes her stop and smell the sweet grasses… as they tumble in them, that is. Things are heating up, and he doesn’t want to walk away. But is he cut out for fatherhood and if so, would this single-minded, strong woman let him in?

It takes a lot to impress a Dalton girl.

And Gracie Dalton is not impressed at all with the fact she’s got to prove her ability as a cowpoke on one of the best ranches in Texas this summer. After all, she’s got the chops from years of working with her brothers and cousins on their well-known ranch. Now she’s pitted against a cocky man with a rodeo belt buckle for each day of the week—not that she’s noticin’.

Hands down, Noble Parker’s going to win a permanent position on the Blackhawk Ranch. No way will he be bested by a woman, let alone one with too much sway in her hips and tempting lips—along with the sharpest tongue he’s ever heard.

Gracie can’t seem to get one step ahead of Noble for long, but she won’t back down from a good challenge. When things go haywire on the ranch, she and Noble have no choice but to ban together and make things work. Seems to Noble, Gracie was right—she IS good at everything—especially kissin’.

Family feud or deep, dark secret? Jessamine Dalton is determined to uncover the reason why one branch of the family tree broke off and headed north to Colorado decades ago. Hitting the road to visit their distant relations seems perfect—she’ll get away from her interfering sisters, and making a proper family tree will double as a Christmas gift for the entire Dalton clan, right? Trouble is, Jessamine’s expected back in time for the festivities… and well, Colorado winters are unpredictable.

Holidays always depress Jake Strahan. While everybody else on the Blackburn Ranch enjoys Christmas cheer, he’s in the barn with the horses who understand him best. So when his fellow ranch hand Gracie asks a huge favor of him—to travel to Colorado and bring her sister home in time for Christmas Eve—he figures why not? He’s got nothin’ better to do.

Now that Jessamine finds herself trapped in the very tight confines of Jake’s truck, she’s got too much time to study the quiet, rugged man. And Jake knows a spirited filly when he sees one and knows better than to try to break her. But maybe it’s the magical snow falling that has him thinking things that are far too sweet for a rough man like him. And maybe Jessamine isn’t really looking back at him with twinkle lights in her eyes.

It’s not easy being a Dalton, let alone the last unmarried one of the Texas bunch. Keziah, or Kizzy, is drained by all the family weddings, and her sisters keep trying to rope and tie her to any old cowboy in the county. To ensure this doesn’t happen, she takes off for the big city and a job as assistant to none other than the smart, savvy and sexy KC Cohen, the mortgage company billionaire who sees her as something more than a cowgirl.

Knox Channing Cohen has achieved his goal—to build his own billion-dollar business from the ground up and without the help of his wealthy family. He’s also managed to break free of his cowboy origins and strike out on his own, far away from the prestigious ranch he grew up on. But when he receives word of his father’s death, he’s back in the saddle… the last place he wants to be.

Kizzy is dragged along as Knox’s assistant to help him deal with the family business. When she learns he’s not only loaded but a damn cowboy too, she can’t be more blindsided. Now she can see all the carved muscle on the man might not be from hitting the gym so much as hard work. Knox wants to sell out the ranch, but seeing the dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty at home around horses has him second-guessing his beliefs about the country… and wondering if he can remind her that she’s a cowgirl at heart.
