The McKettricks - Past & Present/McKettrick's Choice/Sierra's
McKettrick’s Choice When news arrived that there was trouble back in Texas, Holt McKettrick left a mail-order bride and his family on the spot. And he never looked back. He just prayed he’d be in time to save the man who had raised him as a son and keep his best friend from the gallows. He knew he’d encounter rustlers, scoundrels and thieves, but he’d never expected to find a woman like Lorelei Fellows. Setting fire to her wedding dress in the town square probably wasn’t the best way to stand her ground. But Lorelei had had enough. She was sick of men and their schemes. All she wanted was to stake her claim on her own little piece of Texas. And with Holt McKettrick as a neighbour, things were beginning to look up. The man was a straight shooter with a strong will, a steady aim and a hungry heart. Sierra’s Homecoming Sierra McKettrick feels like a fraud. She might be moving to her family’s ancestral ranch with her son, but being a McKettrick by blood isn’t enough to make her fit in. To make matters worse, from the moment she met the Triple M’s ranch hand, he’d gotten under Sierra’s skin. With his rugged body and tender compassion, Travis Reid was a temptation she didn’t need or want. But as Sierra begins to form a connection to one of her ancestors, Hannah McKettrick — also a woman with a young son and an inconvenient attraction to the wrong man — she starts to realise there are some bonds that even time can’t break. And there are some charmed places where even the loneliest of people can find home…and love.
