A Bride Rides Herd Matt Reeves arrives at his brother's ranch to find Betsy Harden alone with the little girls during a cattle drive. Will the ladies be too much to handle when Matt steps in for the missing ranch hand?

When the gang traps Ike and his old nemesis, Lauren McClellen, in a cave, they must work together to outsmart the thugs. But will their time together put them in a compromising situation that will threaten both of their good reputations? The Sweetwater Bride Debba McClain takes offense at being offered a wedding in exchange for valuable water rights. But she doesn't like to see a good man's cattle die of thirst--and the rancher Tanner Harden is rather handsome. Texas Tea Luke Reeves has gotten wealthy in the oil business and goes to visit his uncle to convince him to sign over the oil rights to his land. But when he meets his grown up adopted cousin Libby Cooper, he may be forced to give up one dream to win another. Hope for Christmas It might be 2016, but Montana is still a mighty rough place to survive the winter.
