The Cutteridge Series

All three books in the series! 

Book One: No Greater Glory

Amid the carnage of war, he commandeers far more than just her home…

Widowed plantation owner Emaline McDaniels has struggled to hold on to her late husband’s dreams. Despite the responsibilities resting on her slender shoulders, she’ll not let anyone rip away what’s left of her way of life—particularly a Yankee officer who wants to set up winter camp on her land. With a defiance born of desperation, she defends her home as though it were the child she never had…and no mother gives up her child without a fight!

Despite the brazen wisp of a woman pointing a gun at his head, Colonel Reece Cutteridge has his orders. Requisition Shapinsay—and its valuable livestock—for his regiment’s use, and pay her with Union vouchers. He never expected her fierce determination, then her concern for his wounded, to upend his heart—and possibly his career.

As the armies go dormant for the winter, battle lines are drawn inside the mansion. Yet just as their clash of wills shifts to forbidden passion, the tides of war sweep Reece away. And now their most desperate battle is to survive the war with their lives—and their love—intact.

Book Two: With Open Arms

When her brother rode off five years before to fight for the Union Army, tart-tongued survivor, Callie Cutteridge, assumed full responsibility of their family’s southwestern Arizona territory ranch. Without anyone’s interference, she’s managed just fine on her own. Hardened in childhood by the death of her parents, she hides her heartbreak behind a mask of self-sufficiency. Breaking horses and selling them to the U.S. Army proves she’s neither delicate nor helpless, and she finds comfort in her self-enforced isolation. When a former Yankee cavalry officer arrives claiming to have purchased her brother’s half-interest in the ranch-she is devastated, yet has absolutely no intention of allowing this arrogant stranger to govern one single aspect of her life.
 
Scion of a Philadelphia banking dynasty, Jackson Neale misses nothing about high-society except its delightfully alluring women. His new partner isn’t the agreeable angel her brother, his former commander, led him to believe…but he’s damn well not the useless rake this hellion thinks he is either. For months, he’s looked forward to putting distance between himself and the bloodstained battlefields back east, and arriving at the ranch only to engage in more fighting is nowhere on his agenda. Though he finds his partner’s defiance insufferable, the closer Jackson gets to Callie, the more enthralled he becomes. His quest to find calm stability contradicts sharply with her need for control…yet, still their heartstrings tangle. Passion soon ignites. But how can they transform their hunger into a “happily-ever-after” when all Callie knows how to do is fight…and all Jackson wants is peace?
 

Book Three: An Unlikely Hero

Rugged army scout Dillon Reed has met his match in spoiled Boston debutante Alma Talmadge, but an unwanted assignment escorting the beauty across the wilds of America soon evolves into a journey of monumental change for them both. With killers hot on their trail, the odds of staying alive are stacked against them…and yet, falling in love was nowhere in their plans for survival.
