NELSON’S BRAND by Diana Palmer (originally published January 1991 in Silhouette Desire #681 and reissued numerous times)

CAN HE GET PAST BETRAYAL?

Allison Hathoway’s life was about healing. And she was good at it. Or had been good at it until the tragedy in South America. Now she couldn’t even fix herself. She didn’t know how to go on, didn’t know what to do, or who to be.

She had that in common with Gene Nelson. After the rancher found out the truth about his father, he’d realized his whole life was a lie. He’d gone a little wild, and saw no reason not to give in to his every desire. And the minute he saw Allison, he wanted her. But underneath their explosive passion, Allison and Gene found comfort in each other’s wounded souls. And a chance to start over.

Also includes bonus book: LONETREE RANCHERS: COLD by Kathie Denosky (originally published December 2003 in Silhouette Desire #1551).

LONG, TALL...AND BLIND?

Abby Clark was sick of being treated like a child. Sure, she may have been just a girl when she came to live with Calhoun Ballenger and his brother, but she had long since grown up and it was time Calhoun realized it. So she devised a plan to prove her independence—and capture his attention.

But Abby’s scheme backfired. She was far from the worldly women Calhoun usually spent time with, and his protective streak only seemed to intensify. How could she make him acknowledge his feelings for her without getting burned in the process?

Tragedy had sent music superstar Amanda Callaway to the Wyoming mountains to heal. What she found was another battle to fight... Quinn Sutton.

Snowbound at his ranch, Amanda was glad Quinn was unaware of her real identity. With a chip on his shoulder the size of the Tetons, the rugged mountain man had no use for the opposite sex -- especially city women who ran in the fast lane.

But what Quinn didn’t realize was how special his world seemed to Amanda. Battling his misconceptions about her, she vowed to prove she shared the same old-fashioned values... and desires. When he learned who she was, though, would she lose him forever.

Penelope Mathews had spent her entire adolescence worshipping the elusive C. C. Tremayne—from afar. Until one night, trying to protect the mysterious loner from landing in a Mexican jail after he had drunk a little too much, Pepi was forced to seek refuge in a wedding chapel—and wound up going one step further by emerging as Mrs. Connal Cade Tremayne!

When C.C. realized what had happened, he was outraged—the last thing he needed was a shy virgin on his hands. The marriage was off; he’d see to an annulment immediately. Yet the more time he spent with Pepi, the more he realized he didn’t want a divorce... he wanted forever.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Diana Palmer takes readers back to Jacobsville, Texas, where Hayes Carson is a man on a mission—for justice.

Bobby Carson had been the only family Hayes had left in the world. A long, tall and serious Texan, Hayes has always suspected Minette Raynor had something to do with Bobby’s death, that the bright-eyed blonde gave his brother the drugs that killed him. As far as Hayes is concerned, neither her looks nor anything else will stand in the way of him righting this grievous wrong.

Minette can’t get handsome Hayes off her mind, or off her back. Even though his investigation of her is annoying, as an undercover DEA agent that’s the least of her worries. Minette dismisses Hayes until she finds herself in great danger, and he’s the only one who can save her. Can she count on Hayes to believe the truth—and save her life?

John Callister and his brother had built a ranching empire in Montana.They’d made their fortune—and they’d made Callister a household name. But now John wants something he can call his own. So he starts over—without the Callister name—vowing to polish a run-down spread in the small, sleepy town of Hollister into a jewel.

But the jewel he uncovers isn’t a ranch. Sassy Peale is pretty and shy with far too much responsibility on her small shoulders. She has nothing of value—except her trust, her faith and her love, all of which she offers, without reservation, to him. As John Callister, he could easily give Sassy and her little family a better life. But Sassy knows him only as a simple ranch foreman. How can he tell her that he can give her all she ever wanted, and in the same breath admit that everything she knows about him is a lie?

“Palmer...is the queen of desperado quests for justice and true love.“ —Publishers Weekly on Dangerous

The life of a paid mercenary makes sense to Special Forces Officer Winslow Grange. The jungles of South America may make his former job as a ranch manager for his friend Jay Pendleton look like a cakewalk, but it’s nothing that the former Green Beret can’t handle.

A woman’s heart, however — that’s dangerous territory. Back in Texas, Grange’s biggest problem was avoiding Peg Larson and all the complications being attracted to the daughter of his foreman would entail. Now Grange will need all his training to help General Emilio Machado gain control of the tiny South American nation of Barrera; when Peg arrives unannounced, she’s a distraction he can’t avoid. She’s determined to show Grange she can be useful on and off the battlefield. Once she breaks through his armor, traversing the wilds of the Amazon will prove an easier task than defending himself against her winning charms....
