Lone Star Canyon, Book No. 1370
A public battle of the sexes leads to a night of shocking, private passion.
Sassy hairdresser Nora Darby had a chip on her shoulder the size of Texas. Abandoned by her dad and betrayed by her fiance, she was anti-man, anti-marriage and mouthy about it to boot.

Though the townsfolk considered him the ideal candidate to scale Nora's defenses and soften her heart, the sexy widower had vowed never to love - and lose - again.
But their public battle of the sexes led to a night of shocking, private passion…and an unexpected pregnancy…leaving no-strings Nora and love-shy Stephen staring straight down the shotgun of motherhood and - shudder! - matrimony…
