Book 1 - Child Bride series Chase — The Tall, Tough Renegade She'd Never Escape His whip cracked the air like black lightning, and Annie Wells knew she'd finally found the man she'd risked her life to locate — her husband! Chase Beaudine was a modern-day bounty hunter who rode the Wyoming badlands, a lean, hard, dangerous man who swore that her story couldn't be true. He was sure the young girl he'd married during a desperate rescue mission five years before had died in an accident only days earlier.
A Reluctant Hero — Annie had to make him believe her, make him remember the heaven and hell they'd shared . . . and make him want her so much he'd help her stay in the States! Stunned by the desire she aroused in him, Chase had to taste Annie's innocent fire, but he never expected to discover an angel gone wild in his arms! Could she persuade her reckless outlaw that he'd captured her spitfire's heart? Loveswept - # 541
