Let the Red Devils Come!
by Dave Earnhardt
Braced against the jockey box, gripping her reins, Mary Cawker drove her cantering team of six whispering over wheel ruts, her schooner laden with flour, salt pork, oil lamps, clothing, and fifteen passengers, back from Nebraska City as shadows glinting with steel teeth came rising over the hills . . .

Devil Horse
by Mary Verlinde
When Steve Mason and Shorty Smith start their own ranch, they encounter a horse so wild that no one could ride it. When they discover some of their stock are being killed, they get more than they bargained for from the Devil Horse!

Desolate
by Katie Jordan
Heading home from the cattle drives, Wayne is desperate to return to his wife, Rose. But once there, he finds his beloved has taken in another man in. Will he stay long enough to hear her explanation, or return to Kansas and leave her in the dust?

Chaws
by John H. Dromey
Although Homer and his sidekick Cy were fish out of water, figuratively speaking, the unlikely pair of amateur Pinkertons actually preferred to keep their cowboy boots dry. Even so, they'd do whatever it took—including getting their feet wet and their hands dirty—to catch a crook on a riverboat.

Big Iron
by Rory Halpenny
Arizona Ranger, Methuselah Trayburn, arrives in a small town to confront notorious outlaw Texas Red. The townspeople fear what will happen when the two meet and attempt to persuade him to leave. But he will not go until the showdown has taken place.
