A series following the Moreno sisters of Cabrillo as they find their destinies—and true love—at the turn of the century.
She’d given up on love—until a handsome farmer surprises her with an unexpected proposal…
When her father becomes gravely ill, Laura Kemper sets aside her own dreams to nurse him, as a devoted daughter should. She buries her wants so deeply that not even she can see them. But an unexpected offer from a man too charming to resist unearths those dreams… and she might not be able to bury them again.
Marcus Gries fell for Laura the first moment he saw her. He’s been waiting for the perfect opportunity to win her heart ever since. And when he learns of Laura’s circumstances, he’s even more determined to wed her and make all her dreams come true—if only she would let him.
A marriage born in deceit can bloom into true love—or become the latest casualty of an ancient enmity…
Catarina Moreno only wants a few things in a husband: he needs to have his own ranch, be reasonably handsome, and, most importantly, must utterly adore her. Unfortunately her illustrious Old California family has higher standards—ones that Catarina fears no man will ever meet. But Catarina has no choice except to wait for the man who’ll gain her parents’ approval—until an American cowboy rides onto the rancho and tempts her to forget her duty… and herself.
Jace Merrill has always wanted one thing: a ranch of his own. When his powerful father cheats him of his inheritance, Jace strikes out on his own, determined to prove he’s his own man and the bonds of family are meaningless. After many years, Jace’s dream is finally within reach—as long as Catarina’s father never discovers Jace’s true identity… or how irresistible Jace finds his daughter.
Desire can’t be denied and soon Jace and Catarina find themselves in a shotgun marriage. But they’ll discover that ancient vendettas live long in Old California. They’ll find themselves battling old family grudges—and each other—to save a marriage neither wanted.
A wounded woman, a deeply scarred marshal: the closer they grow, the closer danger comes…
A vicious attack has stripped everything from Isabel Moreno: her fiancé, her sense of security, and the life she’d always dreamed of. With the outlaw still on the loose, regaining peace of mind is impossible. Desperate to banish her fears, she agrees to join the hunt for the fugitive… even though the marshal investigating the case is the most unsettling man she’s ever met.
US Marshal Sebastian Spencer is as coldly determined as the criminals he tracks. He’s spent years perfecting his iron self control—perhaps the most important work of his life. Because when he unbends, things break. People bleed. But no one has ever tempted him to unbend as much as the fiercely brilliant Isabel. He plans to apprehend this outlaw in record time before he’s provoked into something he’ll truly regret… like falling in love.
When more than just one lone outlaw threatens Isabel, Sebastian must keep her closer than ever. They’ll find in one another a kindred soul—and each other’s downfall…

Sheriff Joaquin Obregon sees no reason to change his short-tempered ways. After all, an outlaw’s bullet tore his livelihood away—he has nothing to be happy about. But his stubborn nurse won’t take no for an answer… and surprisingly, Joaquin finds himself wanting to say yes to her.
Joaquin can’t imagine reclaiming his life. Mae is determined he must. The battle lines are drawn—and only love can win.

But when Franny stows away on a dangerous hunt for a cougar menacing the ranch, they are trapped together in the mountains of California… alone.
One long night by the campfire, the two crash into a passionate encounter and discover that familiarity can breed more than contempt. Much, much more.
