About this title


When the prim caretaker of a gang of orphans shows up at his Texas ranch, solitary Jake Maxwell enlists the children in helping him herd his cattle and, along the way, falls in love with their headmistress


Marina Scott fell in love with Ward Dillon at first sight. It was the same for him. The only problem was, Marina was engaged to be married-to Ward's brother Ramon! Marina called off the wedding but an obsessive and jealous Ramon took matters into his own hands. Luisa Dillon protected her favorite son and concocted lies with the intention of driving Marina and Ward apart. Her plan worked and Ward fled for the war, leaving his new bride behind. Ward had no way of knowing what his family was capable of-or that Marina was pregnant. It is seven years later and Marina has come to the Maxwell ranch in Texas Hill Country. She must convince Ward to grant her a divorce so she can remarry and give her son a father. All the old pain and anger resurfaces between them, each feeling betrayed by the other. They were separated by the lies and deception of Ward's family and Ward doesn't know what to believe. Marina simply wants to protect her son from the devastating loss she has already experienced. But it is Tanner, the little boy who waits for the return of his long lost father, who strengthens the bond between Ward and Marina. Tanner doesn't know Ward is his father, but it doesn't take long for father and son to love each other. Once again, Leigh Greenwood delivers an engaging tale of love and family. Ward and Marina's story will touch readers from the very first page. Ward is wonderful as the black sheep of the family, a loner who wants a home and a family of his own. Marina is a charm, both feisty and vulnerable as she tries to do what is best for her and her son. Jake and Isabelle, from the first book of The Cowboys series, return with their family of orphans. Fans of Greenwood's Seven Brides series will be pleased to catch a glimpse of some of those lovable Randolph boys!The Cowboys series continues with the delightful Ward! Leigh Greenwood's new series is already a winner... don't miss it! Leigh Greenwood captivates readers time and time again! If you enjoyed the Seven Brides, you will fall in love with The Cowboys! The bonds of family and the bounds of love... Leigh Greenwood puts both to the test! Don't forget the tissues for this heartwarming chapter in The Cowboys series!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
