Summary

“Do you love me?” 
He reformed her question, and her stomach knotted. Now, he asked too much of her. 
“I asked you first,” she whispered. She swallowed her regret, a wall erecting between them. He wanted those words from her, but she couldn’t say them. For in saying those three words, she’d commit herself to this, to him, and that was the trouble. 
She’d said the vows – to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, ‘til death do them part. She’d said them, though, with a gun at her back and a stranger’s hand in hers. By admitting she loved him, the words took on meaning and held requirements. It meant she’d stay by his side always and maybe never see her family again. She became responsible to him. 
A tear rolled down her cheek. She swiped it away. 
Michael cleared his throat. “I love you, Anne. My question is, why you don’t love me back?” 
----- 
Michael O’Fallen simply wants to survive. A poor Irish boy living in post-Civil War New York, the events of one horrible night send him running far south to unsettled Florida and an uncertain future. Promise-bound to a group of outlaws in an effort to escape his crime, their hidden plans for him loom sinister on the horizon. What is it he’s been brought here to do? 
The oldest of her siblings, Anne Sawyer is the one her poor mama depends on. Her papa is harsh and abusive. He drinks too much and gambles away what little they have. Rumors that he’s lost their house come full circle the night the new owner comes to collect. Except, it seems what her papa gambled this time wasn’t the house at all, but her. 
Carried into the darkness in a stranger’s grasp, she and he are forced to marry with a gun to their backs. But the many dangers they face in their tenuous marriage soon take second place to the darkness in his past. Darkness that might destroy them unless they look to heaven for love and redemption. 
Book 1 of the Florida Irish Series by best-selling author, SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS. A novel.

    Darcy thought his problems were over when Pemberley hatched and successfully imprinted on humans. But baby dragons prove far more difficult than any dragon lore prepared him for. Only  Elizabeth Bennet's notes offer him any help. When his imperious Aunt Catherine takes matters into her own hands, things take a turn for the worse and Pemberley’s life hangs in the balance. He desperately needs more of Elizabeth’s help, but she ignores all of his requests. 
    Elizabeth, though, has problems of her own. After the Bennet family dragon sent Pemberley away, life at Longbourn was supposed to return to normal and Elizabeth get on with the all-important business of marrying the heir to her father’s estate. Except that he is the last man in the world whom she could ever be prevailed on to marry—a bumbling, addle-pated dragon-hater who demands she gives up the dragons she lives for. 
    Can she, with the help of her dragon friends, find her way back to Pemberley before they both suffer their fate from the Dragon Entail?

    Two cattle punchers share a dream of making it big—until one of them is murdered—in this suspenseful western from an award-winning author. Frank Christian and Morg Wheelon were going to build something great. After the two veteran cattle punchers saved up enough to start their own outfit, Frank was to ride down to Texas and buy whatever herd he could, then bring them up the Chisholm Trail through Indian country to the rich grasslands of the Cheyenne in Wyoming. Morg would be waiting with the grazing rights in hand. It was a risky plan, but Frank and Morg weren’t about to give up their dream.   But when Frank arrives with the herd, Morg has been murdered. The land has been stolen by a gang of outlaws, and a corrupt army officer wants to bring Frank down. Frank has never backed away from trouble, however, no matter how long the odds. To avenge his friend’s death and keep their hopes alive, the small-time cowpuncher must become a world-class gunslinger.   A winner of the Levi Strauss Golden Saddleman Award from the Western Writers of America, Luke Short was a master of the frontier epic. War on the Cimarron is one of his most thrilling and unforgettable tales of the Old West.

As word spreads that Coyle is to return, every man in town grabs a gun. But that won’t be nearly enough.   Coyle sneaks back under cover of darkness. He wears his guns, but he hasn’t come to use them. He’s here for Carol McFee, the only woman who ever saw any good in him and needs him desperately now. In a town where every man wants him dead, Coyle will do a good deed—or die trying.   One of legendary author Luke Short’s most popular westerns, Hardcase delivers a pulse-pounding story that twists and turns, and a wide cast of vibrant characters, including the memorable Dave Coyle, who embodies the courage, toughness, and loyalty of American frontiersmen.

    One of the top twenty-five westerns of all time: an action-packed tale about a range war in a violent town—and the honest foreman who risks his life to keep the peace. Phil Evarts is dead, and the Hatchet Range is up for grabs. That’s 70,000 acres of prime turf just waiting for the man rich enough to buy it . . . or the gunman crazy enough to kill for it. Every schemer in town has his eyes on Hatchet, and Bide Mariner leads the charge. An unscrupulous rancher who’ll stop at nothing for cash, Mariner has the money and the guns to take whatever he wants. Only Will Ballard stands in his way—and that means Ballard is marked for death.   The foreman at Hatchet Range, Ballard is an honest man who’ll do anything to keep the ranch from falling into Mariner’s hands. In a town so rotten with greed that even the sheriff is against him, Ballard must stand alone to save this little piece of the American West.   Voted one of the top twenty-five westerns of all time by the Western Writers of America and made into a 1952 Republic film starring Rod Cameron, Ride the Man Down showcases award-winning author Luke Short at the height of his writing powers.
