Lone Star Book 2
by Gerry Bartlett

Scarlett Hall followed a job and a friend to Texas, but that cost her more
than she’d bargained for. Now, wounded but determined to get past
one of the worst days of her life, she decides she has to pull
herself together. First step: cover up the physical scars left from
her ordeal. That’s easy. But the emotional scars are proving harder
Then she meets Ethan
Calhoun. This bad boy seems ready to make his own changes and might
be just what she needs to start a new chapter in her life. When he
offers her a job as manager of his new bar, she decides to go for it.
A change of pace and a hot guy who makes her forget her troubles
while she’s in his arms are a great cure. But it soon becomes clear
that danger will be in Scarlett’s life no matter how many changes
she makes. As Scarlett comes face to face with her worst nightmare,
it seems happiness was just an illusion. Maybe Texas is just too much
Lone Star Book 1
A million-dollar idea.
A city girl in the country.
And a man who brings out her wild side…
Anna Delaney is thrilled to leave Boston for Austin, Texas, when her small
tech company is bought out by a conglomerate. Born into a family of
over-protective brothers, this is her chance at true independence—and
a name-making professional breakthrough.
Even when gorgeous billionaire rancher King Sanders forms a one-man
welcoming committee, Anna insists that she doesn’t need a tour
guide—or another bodyguard. But after she narrowly escapes a
kidnapping attempt, she can’t say no to King spiriting her away to
someplace safe…and very private.
Someone wants the valuable software Anna’s developing, and King is
determined to keep her safe until the culprit is caught. The hunky
cowboy lights her up brighter than the Lone Star sky at night, but
neither one of them is prepared for just how wild Texas can get—and
just how hard they’re willing to fight to stay together…
