Wyoming Wedding

Karlan Culpepper has worked his entire adult life, and most of his youth, to build up the ranch he knew he would someday inherit. When his grandfather dies, and the terms of his inheritance include he and his three brothers marrying within six months, and at least one of them having a baby on the way within the year, things get trickier. Contacting Dr. Lachele Simpson, a professional matchmaker, seemed the only way to go!
Hope, the oldest of the Quinlan Quadruplets needs nothing more than to get out from under her parents’ roof, and take her sisters with her. She feels stifled, and she wants more than anything to marry. After a long weekend of testing, the four sisters embark on a road trip that would change their lives. Hope quickly agrees to marry Karlan, one of the four brothers waiting for her and her sisters in Wyoming. Will they be able to make their marriage work? Or should they have waited to get to know one another a little better like all their siblings had?

Scotsman's Siren

From the day she was born, Honor Quinlan was forced to live up to impossible standards. Her twin, Grace, was always more feminine, more obedient, and more appreciated, while she was always reminded of how wicked and willful she was. So when she is given the chance to get away from her parents’ iron rule, to move out to the Culpepper ranch in Wyoming—where her older sisters had married the Culpepper cowboys—and to marry rancher, Angus MacFarlane she runs for it.

But no one who was raised the way Honor was escapes unscathed.

All Scotsman Angus MacFarlane has ever wanted is a large, loving family, unlike the one he was raised in. He would give his life for Linda Culpepper and her sons and their ranch, especially when it comes to thwarting the machinations of the dastardly cousin Travis. But when Honor sweeps into his life, everything changes.

For Angus, it’s love at first sight. But can he help her overcome the scars of her childhood and teach her to trust him?
