Publisher's Summary

The book that started the MacLaren family saga.

Niall MacLaren is the oldest of four brothers and the undisputed leader of the family. A widower and single father, his focus is on building the MacLaren ranch into the largest and most successful in Northern Arizona. 

He is serious about two things - his responsibility to the family and his future marriage to the wealthy, well-connected widow who will secure his place in the territory’s destiny.

Katherine is determined to live the life she’s dreamed about. With a job waiting for her in the growing town of Los Angeles, California, the young teacher from Philadelphia begins a journey across the United States with only a couple of trunks and her spinster companion. 

Life is perfect for this adventurous, beautiful young woman, until an accident throws her into the arms of the one man who can destroy it all.

Fighting his growing attraction and strong desire for the beautiful stranger, Niall is more determined than ever to push emotions aside to focus on his goals of wealth and political gain. But looking into the clear blue eyes of the woman who could ruin everything, Niall discovers he will have to harden his heart and be tougher than he’s ever been in his life. Tougher than the rest.

Tougher than the Rest is a full-length novel with an HEA and no cliff-hanger.

Nailed

Western tale, with some wild behaviour by the oh so proper natives resulting in some really dodgy outcomes, all beautifully narrated which makes it worth the time, of what otherwise could've been a droll formulaic rumpus. Won't be continuing with this series but will certainly check out this narrator again. ENTERTAINING

This was a great beginning to a series. Loved the story and the narrator did a fantastic job as always.
Looking forward to the next book.
