If you liked the Magnificent Seven, you'll love the Rock Creek Six! Six elite Confederate soldiers band together after the War Between the States, hiring out their guns to protect lawless towns. Violence is all they know, until they make their way to Rock Creek, Texas. Rico is known as "the Kid" to the other members of the Rock Creek Six. Though he can't hit much with a gun, he is deadly with a knife--and with women. But like all of them, Rico has secrets in his past, which come back to haunt him. Lily Fortier has secrets of her own. She arrives in Rock Creek after winning the local saloon in a poker game and sets about making for herself the life she's always dreamed of having. Once known as the "ebony-eyed nightingale of New Orleans" Lily's beautiful voice has lifted her out of a shack in the swamps. Though she's always worked for others, she has her own place now, her own plans, her own life. She doesn't need a man in it--especially one like Rico. However, over time he proves himself to be more than a decorative, aimless knife for hire. Together they build a business and make a home for both themselves and the two orphaned children who love them. When a Pinkerton agent arrives in Rock Creek and drags Lily back to New Orleans to stand trial for murder, even the Rock Creek Six can't save her. This time, only Rico can.
