Renegade is the second book in the Cowboys and Harvey Girls series. It's a sweeping, powerful Western historical romance series, featuring intrepid Harvey Girls and the rugged cowboys who win their hearts.

I hope you enjoy this excerpt!

*** She hadn't seen much of the sheriff since Grace's wedding. He rarely ate in the hotel dining room. She'd seen him a couple of times passing through the lobby, and he'd tipped his hat to her as he continued on his way. Now, once she reached the office door, she hesitated. The window that faced the street was dark, but a dim light was coming from a window at the side of the building. She rapped sharply on the door and after two seconds repeated the action, doubling the force.

"I'm coming," a male voice grumbled, and light flooded the window that overlooked the street. Lily stepped back, and when the door opened, she rushed inside, brushing past the sheriff, who was hooking his suspenders over his broad shoulders.

"Miss Travis?" He ran his hand through his tousled hair. "What on..." He stepped outside and glanced around before returning and shutting the door. "Are you all right?" He looked her over.

"I'm perfectly fine." She touched her fingers to her hair. "I would like to report a possible... situation that requires your attention, Sheriff Daniels."

The man had the audacity to smile just enough to expose those dang dimples.

"This is serious," she informed him.

He cleared his throat and indicated she should take a seat while he took his place behind the scarred table that served as his desk. "No doubt. Why don't you tell me what's got you so riled up?"

"I am not riled up. I am seriously concerned about a friend."

He leaned forward, his eyes studying her face. "I can see that, Miss Travis. Tell me what I can do to help." Both his tone and demeanor had shifted to something more professional and distant.

All of which made her aware that the three small cells at the rear of the room were unoccupied and she was alone with this man at an hour that would surely raise both eyebrows and questions were she to be discovered.

She stood and started for the door. "This was a mistake," she murmured.

RENEGADE by Anna Schmidt

Cowboys & Harvey Girls #2
Meet the women who tamed the West

Second in a sweeping, powerful Western historical romance series from award-winning author Anna Schmidt, featuring intrepid Harvey Girls and the rugged cowboys who win their hearts.


Lily Travis may be a Harvey Girl, but she's a rebel at heart. Too bad her impulsive nature led her to marry a man who promised a life of ease and prosperity...and left the very next day. Now, she's convinced she'll never find true love—not even with the handsome local sheriff she can't get off her mind.

Cody Daniels knows Lily isn't right for a by-the-book lawman with political ambitions. But when Lily's past catches up with her, Cody is determined to defend her honor and show her the future they could have together—consequences be damned.
