Lady Broke by Rachel Donnelly
East meets west when a high-principled
It’s tough being a witness when the last one turned up dead. But Christie Wallace is determined to bring the
gang to justice. Unfortunately, the
law can’t protect her from pistol-toting outlaws or the intoxicating lure of a
dangerous man. But, after escaping the suffocating prospects of an arranged
marriage, she has no intention of allowing her heart to rule her head, even
when temptation comes in the form of an incorrigible lawman named Nat Randall. Everett
Dead or alive—it made no difference to Nat Randall. He’d tried to bring the
gang to trial once before, but the law let him down. It seems frontier justice
is all he has left. But he didn’t count on protecting a bewitching Easterner
whose courageous spirit challenges him as much as her beauty distracts. It’s
not long before he’s torn between pursuing her or the outlaws. Everett
A timeless, rollicking adventure of unlikely lovers, set in the Wild West.

How To Wed An Earl by Ivory Lei
Having regained his fortune, Lucas, Earl of Ravenstone, has to marry in order to keep it. Luckily, he won’t have to search for a wife—he’s known her name since their marriage was arranged in their youth. To fulfill his duty, he travels far from London Society to claim a fiancée who would no doubt be thrilled at the prospect of finally being able to use his name and become his countess.
Penelope Maitland has already been using Lucas’s name—to fend off her stepfamily’s creditors. After wasting decades waiting for him, she reckons it’s only fair she gets something out of her long-standing betrothal before she hears Lucas has married someone else.
When they accidentally meet in a coaching inn, she finds herself fighting dangerous girlhood fantasies about marrying the man of her dreams who broke her heart with his apparent lack of interest. And Lucas finds that in order to keep his fortune, he will have to lose his heart to a woman who is tired of waiting for him.
