The Lady's Arrangement
Colleen L. Donnelly
(Help Wanted #1)

Neither Rex nor Regina wants a spouse, but they do have needs.

Ranger Rex Duncan needs a false identity—just long enough to uncover a ring of Kansas ranch thieves. Answering Regina’s ad for a temporary husband, he leaves his beloved red dirt of Oklahoma to assume that disguise. But the most obstinate woman he’s ever known confounds his assignment, and with hair the red color that has always made his heart beat a little faster.

Regina Howard needs a new Mrs. in front of her name—just long enough to reclaim her deceased husband’s ranch, since Kansas law won’t allow women to own property. When Rex answers her ad for a husband who can take orders as part of a brief business arrangement, she finds this stubborn man ignores her every command. Yet a good man is far more than just a name…

An Exclusive Excerpt from The Lady's Arrangement:

I reached for the reins. She yanked them high and behind her. Not so high I couldn’t outstretch her much smaller frame, but out of reach where I had no right to lean. I stared down at her. I hadn’t noticed how green her eyes were until now. Piercing green as they bored into mine. “All right. He’s your son.” I turned to Ted. “We’ll be right back.”

Her stretch relaxed enough that she let me take the reins. I looped them over the saddle horn and set the toe of my boot in the stirrup. As soon as I hit the saddle, she was at the horse’s side, one arm, far too slender for the sleeve that bunched down near her elbow, extended my direction. I took her hand, let her foot have the stirrup, and lifted her up. She slung one leg over the horse’s back and dropped into place behind me. “How long you been wearing trousers?”

“Let’s go.”

“Mrs. Howard, I must insist that you consider…” Mr. Gulliver came near the horse.

Regina dug her legs into Boss behind me, and we were off.

I tipped my hat at Ted as Boss leapt forward. Both of his bosses leaving him behind. He missed, or ignored, my gesture as we sped off, his eyes on the woman behind me.
