heroes-cowboysThree authors offer separate stories of finding love in the Old West, all with the leading role being a female.

The first story is of a young runaway who sets out to win the monetary prize in a horse race for men only. Winning the race dressed as a man, she finds love among the competition. The second story line follows Isabelle, who works in a saloon and can’t cook or clean, but falls in love with the owner and deals with heartache. The final story is of strong-willed and cocky Andrea, who, as a writer, is looking for more than the next story and finds it with the local sheriff. Traditional Romance novels have now entered into the Old West. —Linda Wommack
