Dear Reader:

If you enjoyed TEXAS DESTINY, then you’ll be excited to learn that I’ve written Dallas’s story. His search for a woman to bear his son leads him to Cordelia McQueen.

Incredibly shy, she seems an odd match for a builder of empires, but Dallas soon recognizes strength within her demure demeanor, and she unleashes in him the tenderness he has always held at bay. Their marriage of convenience will take them on a journey of discoveries, heartache, and triumph as—together—they learn to reach for dreams and glory.

Look for
Texas Glory

Sincerely,

Lorraine Heath

“YOU’RE SAFE,” SHE WHISPERED.

The mud sucked at Houston’s boots as he hauled Amelia to the bank of the river and collapsed, her body falling alongside his, her breathing labored, his own chest aching as he fought to draw in air. With blinding stars dancing across his vision, he rose up on an elbow and glared at the quivering woman lying beside him. Her lips were incredibly blue in a face that was amazingly white. He pressed his wet body over hers, trying to warm her.

“What the hell did you think you were doing?” he growled, his heart pounding wildly in his chest.

“I was going to save you.”

He threaded his fingers through her tangled hair. She’d lost her bonnet. She was damn lucky she hadn’t lost her life. “You little fool,” he rasped in a voice rife with emotion. “You brave little fool.”

His mouth swooped down to cover hers. Her cold, quivering lips parted slightly, and he thrust his tongue through the welcome opening like a man desperately searching for treasure.

And treasure he found.
