Jodi Thomas’s novels about a lottery in which love is the prize have won rave reviews from readers and critics alike. Now the New York Times bestselling author presents the fourth and final romance in this unforgettable series.
Years ago, Texas Ranger Jacob Dalton bailed an orphaned girl named Nell out of trouble more times than he could count. But now the kid he once called “Two Bits” has grown into a beautiful young woman—and is in more trouble than ever before.
Wounded in an ambush, Nell refuses to become a burden for her former guardian angel. Unfortunately, her injury has made it impossible for her to handle the ranches she’s inherited, so she decides to get herself a husband. One thing’s for sure: She isn’t about to let Jacob bully her into saying “I do.” When Jacob steps in line for her hand, Nell is forced to weigh her need for his help against a love too strong to allow him to sacrifice his future for her.

Captain Walker Larson received the shock of his life when a beautiful stranger boldly walked into his office—claiming to be his wife. His father may have bought Lacy Larson for him in a “Wife Lottery,” but Walker had no desire for a bride—even one as captivating as the one standing before him. So he promptly sent Lacy back to Cedar Point.
Three years later, Lacy is shocked when Walker shows up on her doorstep—ordered by the military to protect his wife from a killer. Lacy wants nothing to do with the gruff soldier who once drove her away. But despite their different lifestyles and expectations, she finds herself wondering if their marriage was a far better gamble than either of them had imagined…and what it would feel like to be in his arms…

He just barely survives—and now if Sarah doesn’t get him out of town fast, someone is going to make sure Sam Gatlin doesn’t live long enough to enjoy the honeymoon. No matter what he may have done, or how many enemies he has, Sarah feels she owes him. After all, he saved her from a life in prison. But never in her wildest dreams did she imagine that this dangerously attractive Texan would steal her heart and make her want to take the biggest gamble of all…
