A Bride for Gil Publisher's Summary

Gil Slatter's quick on the draw and has a head for running a ranch - but he's also a lonely man with nothing more than a cot in the bunkhouse at the TXY Ranch to call home. When the ranch's foreman drops dead of a heart attack and the owner picks Gil to take his place, his entire world turns upside down. One day life is simple. The next he's running the entire outfit.

The old foreman's passing means more than just a new job on the ranch, though. He also leaves behind a daughter, a willful young woman named Kate. When Gil drops by to pay his respects, she shocks him with a proposal of marriage...and ends up stealing his heart.

So starts the western adventure of a lifetime. Between wild horses, outlaws, rustlers, an ambitious young landowner with a mean streak, and the flirtatious, scheming wife of the ranch's owner, it's no easy task Gil faces. But with his new bride beside him, he'll take the TXY to new heights of success...or die trying!

    Even the toughest and most cunning lawman in Texas has his limits. With nothing to go on but five bloody bodies, a cracked safe, and an empty jail, Dell works the fringe of his sleepy western town - the forgotten, the invisible, those who often see without being seen. The more he learns, though, the more he wishes he could forget. In search of the truth, Dell finds himself pulled into a dark world of murder, deception, and brutality the likes of which he never imagined.

    All he wants is a job as a ranch foreman. He'd tried in Montana, but ended up in a gunfight with a pair of ugly-looking brothers over a horse. Leaving one dead and the other swearing revenge, Norm figures it'd be wise to make himself scarce. He heads south, to Nebraska. Instead of work, though, he finds something he never expected--a partner. Edith is a beautiful young woman with a sordid past of her own.
