Mountain Romance

Red Holden is a cowboy who knows more about cattle than he does about love. But all that changes when he meets Mattie Sharp on the lonely prairie. Can Mattie change his mind about women? The answer lies in Mountain Romance. Here's an excerpt to sample.

But Mattie was already rushing into the cell to embrace him. She
pulled his head down and whispered in his ear. “Play along with me or
you’ll rot in here.” Aloud she said: “You were so brave, darling. I was so
worried that other man might actually kill you.”
