Introducing the unforgettable Creed dynasty, transporting us back to a wild, lawless frontier, Johnston brings us a stirring, passionate story of Texas Ranger Jarrett Creed and the free-spirited beauty who captures his heart—a woman sworn to love no man. FRONTIER WOMAN Captured by Comanches as a boy, Jarrett Creed grew to manhood torn between two worlds. But with the young republic under siege from ravaging Mexican armies and marauding Indian tribes alike, he made his choice. Now, as a secret government mission brings the Texas Ranger to lovely Cricket Stewart’s door, he must choose again.
