Montana Surrender

Jessica has far too many worries on her mind to be distracted by the sexy on-the-run outlaw, Storm. And Storm has no time to pursue the beauty who invades his hideout; he has to clear his name. Too many barriers stand between the two of them to ever fall in love. Or can they overcome the obstacles?  Backed into a corner after an unexpected spring blizzard decimates her already declining herd of cattle, Jessica knows she has no choice. Despite her vow to never touch the hidden gold — gold she feels is cursed — she can't meet the looming payment on the ranch she inherited from her father. There's no chance of a mortgage extension, either. The bank manager has already assured her in no uncertain terms he won't risk his bank's precious money any further on a woman running a spread. Lord, she should have spit in the manager's face, as her foreman had thought she would!

There has to be more than one rifleman in the ambush that surprises Jessica and her men. But only one paint horse and rider are silhouetted against the setting sun. And only one person — Jessica, the lone woman in the group of cowboys — sneaks out of camp that night to search for her runaway horse. She's not afraid of ghosts, like the men appear to be. It's not ghost arms that capture her on the hillside, though. Definitely not a ghost that haunts her thoughts and dreams from then on as she tries to save her ranch.

Montana Surrender reads like a good old action packed Western movie. Trana Mae Simmons understands the wild land, its untamed characters and brings their complex stories to life. -- Romantic Times Magazine

A wild and adventurous shoot-em-up ride through the Old West, filled with unexpected plot turns and an intriguing cast of unusual characters a reader will remember long after the last page has been read. A winner! -- Michalann Perry, Zebra Books Author

Her spirit is as fiery as the blazing sun, a temper to match. Southern manners dictate he has to save her life, but then she's on her own, out of his life. Or is she?  Southern men! How on earth did the rumors of their gentlemanly behavior ever gain credence? Shanna almost believes that dumb tittle-tattle at first — sensing a haven from the maelstrom of her life in the strong arms of a chestnut-haired stranger in tight denims. But of all the nerve! Just because he saves Shanna and her little brother, Toby, from becoming twin blood spots on the walkway in Liberty, Missouri, doesn't give him the right to step in and discipline Toby.  She's determined to banish the nagging persistence of a man she will, hopefully, never have to cross paths with again. There's another man somewhere in Missouri she has to find — and convince to marry her. She'll have to carry the ghost of the love she develops for Cody Garret with her to her grave.
