The Rock Creek Six
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.
Good friend Lori Handeland and I had a great time with this series of six books. We both love westerns! Six friends, one town that needs their help, six women to love them. Lori wrote books 1, 3, and 5, Reese, Rico and Nate. I wrote books 2, 4, and 6, Sullivan, Jed, and Cash. They are all available in e-format and in print!
For Eden Rourke, making her way from a sheltered life in Georgia to rough and tumble Rock Creek is an easy decision, if not an easy journey. A tenderhearted woman, she’s always been driven to help those in need, including the half-breed Sinclair Sullivan who’s been ambushed and beaten directly in the path of her wagon. Coincidence? She thinks not.
When Sullivan discovers that the woman who saved him is Jed Rourke’s sister, he feels obligated to escort her to Rock Creek. He tells himself that once she’s there she’ll be Jed’s problem, not his, but Eden is not only tender and unfailingly optimistic, she’s persistent. And she’s decided that Sinclair Sullivan is meant to be hers.
Eden doesn’t believe in coincidence, but she does believe in fate.
Hannah Winters is summoned to Rock Creek by a cryptic message from a sister she hasn’t seen in many years. When the stagecoach is robbed, and she and the the passengers are left stranded on the road, she finds herself butting heads with fellow passenger Jed Rourke.
Jed’s old flame has recently become a widow, and she wants Jed to make sure the man who murdered her husband is punished. The accused is a mild-mannered shopkeeper who maintains his innocence. He’s also Hannah’s brother-in-law.
Jed and Hannah find themselves on opposite sides of a scandalous murder case, but at the same time they’re constantly drawn together. Is Hannah the woman who can finally cure Jed of his need to wander? Is he the man to heal the broken heart she hides so well?
Rock Creek is the only place gunslinger Daniel Cash dares to call home, even though he’s surrounded by constant and annoying reminders that the others have moved on. His friends have made lives and families for themselves, they’ve finally left the war behind. He never will.
Nadine Ellington, a girl from his past, comes riding into town with the son Cash never knew they’d created before he left town to go to war. His teenage son who’s decided to become a gunslinger has come looking for a mentor in the deadly man he most admires. The man he doesn’t know is his father.
Nadine desperately wants Cash to convince their child that the life of a gunslinger isn’t for him. She promises her old love anything, if only he’ll do as she asks. While she searches for a trace of the boy she once loved in the hard man who’s taken his place, Cash is faced with the ugly truth that no one he loves will ever be safe.
