Steam: Steam Level 5
Welcome to the Wilds of Texas, it is 1891 and Stephenville is bursting with courageous women and rugged men. The Cowboy’s Baby, is a romance as epic as the territory it is played out in. In this, the second book of our series I invite you to come along and meet some of the townsfolk…..
Mariette is unconventional to say the least, a feisty hellion determined to make her own way in a man’s world. She headed out West dressed as a man, in search of riches – and not only found them, prospecting in the wilds of New Mexico, but invested them wisely to create a life for herself, in the growing little town. Wealthy and wise, she is the driving force behind the mercantile success of Stephenville, and her newest adventure is to get a town newspaper up and running. But her frank and often forthright way of reporting the local news doesn’t endear her to everyone. It would appear that many of her neighbours were never happy a woman was doing so well anyway.
Hardy has been out on the land his entire life. The youngest son of a farmer back in New York State he was left to fend for himself when his older brother inherited it all. He wants adventure, and excitement, but even more than that he longs for a wife and family of his own. With no money, no land, and a habit of getting himself into trouble, he has nothing to call his own. But a chance meeting with the elegant Miss Mariette makes him wonder if there just might be hope that he may be lucky enough to have found both!
