The Duke & the Cowgirl (Western Rebels, Book 3)

Set in 1903 Cody, Wyoming and London, England, THE DUKE & THE COWGIRL is the tale of impetuous Western beauty Shelby Matthews and dashing Geoffrey Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst. When Geoff journeys to Wyoming for one last adventure before an arranged marriage and wins half of Shelby's ranch, neither of them bargain for the outcome!
