Description

" . . .the beginning of what promises to be a marvelous series. Bring on the next five Rock Creek men!"

Romantic Times

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 following the war, Mary hires 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.  Can Mary teach him differently?

Reese is the first book in the six book Rock Creek Six series, written alternately by RITA Award Winning and New York Times Bestselling authors, Lori Handeland and Linda Winstead Jones. If you enjoyed the movie "The Magnificent Seven" or the novels of Linda Lael Miller and Jodi Thomas, give Reese a try!

    This was a great story along the lines of the Magnificent Seven but with a romantic twist. The characters were believable and the way they behaved appear typical of the time in which the story was set. I look forward to reading the next book in this series and although two authors have collaborated across the series I am confident the quality will be maintained. I would recommend this book to anyone who like westerns and/ or the romance genre. This book is a great example of both.
