If you liked the Magnificent Seven, you’ll love the Rock Creek Six!
Six elite Confederate soldiers band together after the War Between the States, hiring out their guns to protect lawless towns. Violence is all they know, until they make their way to Rock Creek, Texas.
Mary McKendrick, a headstrong schoolteacher who wants nothing more than to find a home, takes charge when a band of ruffians attempts to destroy Rock Creek. With very few men left in town after the war, Mary travels to Dallas to hire Reese, the mysterious and reluctant leader of a band of guns for hire.
Reese is haunted by the war and all he did during it. The only constant in his life are the five men willing to come whenever he calls them. They will do anything for each other; they are all they have left.
Though Mary prides herself on managing everyone and anything, she can’t manage Reese or her feelings for him. Reese doesn’t believe he is worthy of loyalty and devotion; he certainly isn’t worthy of love. In Rock Creek, Mary McKendrick teaches him differently.

“If your a fan of historical romance books that take place in the mid/late 1800’s that is a western type book then this is a must read!“
“If you like western romances, you can’t fail by trying this series; but be warned, you’ll come to love the town and folks of Rock Creek so much, you’ll hate to see the series end! I did!“
