Cowboys of Courage
Courage to Follow
He only wanted a simple life...
Apparently, there would be no peach for Garrett Woodward, though he lived on the top of the mountain outside Courage, Montana, steering clear of social situations. But Garrett gets shoved into the role of sheriff when Courage's 20-year veteran sheriff goes missing, only to then be blamed for his murder. For a man as well liked as Garrett, he's floored when the entire town turns against him and refuses to search for more clues. Making on last ditch effort, Garrett decides to visit an old friend to call in a favor and finds himself in a completely different kind of trouble, this time involving his heart.
She was only there to solve a mystery...
But Shakota Clearwater welcomed the opportunity to explore life off the Crow Nation reservation. She longed for more excitement in her life, and used her tracking skills she'd honed since early childhood would offer her new experiences. Of course, she wasn't counting on intense attraction -- and perhaps a connection soul deep -- between her and Garrett Woodward to be one of those experiences. But Shakota has to decide where she belongs before she can give her heart away to a man she doesn't think she can live without.
Courage to Believe
He just wanted to make a living...
It seemed that every time Lucas Graham got a little ahead, something threw him back three steps. With financial problems beyond his control and a ranch he's only just begun to build, the coordinator of Treasure County Search and Rescue in Courage can't catch a break. Just when the thinks he's solved his problems, another arises. It's always a girl, and this one is in a race against time. Gritting his teeth, he heads out into the storm fearlessly, prepared for the worst...or so he thinks. This time, though, the challenge is beyond his experience, and he might be bested.
She was supposed to be on vacation...
With her life just beginning, Gillian Grayson simply chose to visit her aunt and uncle up on the mountain in Courage. She wasn't the most accomplished rider, but with a trustworthy horse, she didn't count on getting thrown and destroying her ankle as part of her vacation. A storm is brewing and she can't hike back to the ranch. She's at the mercy of anyone who might think to look for her. But with her independent streak and a desire to go home and live her dream, she might not have the courage to be truly found.
Courage to Fall
She didn't feel courageous...
Leah Evens might live in Courage, Montana but right now she didn't feel courageous. In one day her whole life was crumbling like a dry cupcake. For 15 years she'd worked at Daisy's diner and hoped to own it someday, just like Daisy wanted. But the elderly lady's sudden death leaves a will with a giant gap...the diner would go to the grandson from Manhattan, along with everything else. Now, Leah has no job and no way to pay her bills, unless sh can convince Mr. New York to let her keep managing the hometown diner.
He couldn't wait to leave...
Easton McClendon hadn't seen his grandmother in years, not since his parents' death. He doesn't have time to waste on small town legalities...not when he has a thriving business in New York. But fate has other plans and he's stuck in Montana for a week at Christmas while the attorney finishes the necessary paperwork. The only bright spot in the whole situation is the beautiful diner manager, Leah. And when she offers to help him sort through his grandmother's antiques to ready them for auction, he can't find a reason to say no. As the hours pass, Easton and Leah can't stop their growing attraction to each other. But will they have enough time to fall in love, and do they really want to?
