Romance Western | Romance Historical

Owen Wheeler is on a mission to capture and bring to justice a man from his past. Hetta Gwynne is a unique woman who thinks all men are the same. Leigh Greenwood's Night Riders series continues with the story of Hetta and Owen coming together. Both are scarred by similar family dysfunctions. Owen is on the trail of Laveau, an evil man who betrayed the Night Riders during the Civil War. Everyone in Pinto Junction thinks Laveau is their savior and is keeping the Army and rustlers away. Hetta meets Owen when he shows up at her best friend's house to rent a room. When he realizes that Hetta doesn't like him, Owen sets out to change her mind, and prove that Laveau isn't the hero everyone thinks he is, and above all, show her she deserves love.

Owen and Hetta bring out the best in each other while spending time working to rebuild her ranch together. Their hard work is interrupted when Laveau comes back to town and threatens Hetta and Owen's safety. Will they survive against Laveau? And can they learn to trust one another to find their true happiness together?

TEXAS BRIDE is the 2nd book in the Night Riders series and well worth the read. Can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series!

SUMMARY

She's the one woman he could never have...

Handsome and devilishly charming Owen Wheeler has always had a way with women, but the war has left him a changed man. He's no longer interested in breaking hearts. Now on the trail of a fellow Night Rider turned traitor, he will stop at nothing to ensure that justice is done.

There's nothing about fiercely independent―and plain―Hetta Gwynne that should make Owen long to trade his vendetta for peace, but something about her makes him feel like the man he always wanted to be. Owen can see a chance for a real future at Hetta's side...if only he could convince her to let down her guard and trust in the passion neither of them can deny.

The war has changed them all, and each of the Night Riders must decide what is more important: love or revenge?
