The fight never ends until someone surrenders.
The second book in Intrigue under Western Skies, Surrendered, threatens Rhyan’s and Carianne’s happy everafter on the sprawling ranch called Sollano in the heart of Nebraska’s 1884 prairie.
Having vanquished his political enemies, Rhyan Cason is anxious to get hometo his beloved Carianne. Then he receives word an anthrax outbreak threatens his ranch. Even as he ponders how he can afford to take a wife, dark secrets from the distant past shake his beliefs to the core and convince him he’ll never be able to find forgiveness or make Carianne happy.
Carianne is stunned when Rhyan breaks their secret engagement. She leaves Sollano, the beautiful ranch house she loves almost as much as its owner, and returns home to Westerfield. While waiting for her shattered heart to heal, she shifts her attention to building the library she’s promised the town.
Even though Colt Holliman offers her a new courtship, circumstances keep drawing her back to Sollano and Rhyan. Torn between her affection for Colt and her love for Rhyan, Carianne realizes almost too late Rhyan’s troubles lie deeper than saving the ranch. He fights an evil that may destroy more than his love for her–one only God can defeat.
