Irish born Margaret Mary Flaherty leaves New York City for Colorado carrying the signed proof her brother needs to keep greedy landowners from stealing his ranch. Joshua Turner, U.S. Marshal, is headed to Colorado to investigate charges of cattle rustling and land fraud.
Their paths cross in the middle of enemy territory, where Marshal Turner comes to the aid when Maggie’s stagecoach is attached by hostile Indians. One look at the handsome marshal, and Maggie swears her destiny’s calling to her from the depths of his brilliant green eyes. One look at the fiery-haired woman with eyes the color of cornflowers and Joshua wonders if he’s finally found the woman who will teach him how to love.
“Poignant…well written and just plain delightful…THE RANCHER’S HEART has definitely found its way to my keeper shelf,”
James Ryan's peaceful existence turns upside down the night he catches young Mick O'Toole trying to rustle his cattle. Running from a dark past of his own, Ryan agrees to take the boy and his ailing widowed mother in.
Widowed Bridget O'Toole's life finally changes for the better the night the darkly handsome rancher opens his home and his heart to her and Mick. But her past is just a day's ride away from town, on a collision course with Ryan's, when her husband returns from the dead, blazing a path of destruction straight toward Bridget, Mick and the new life they've made in Emerson, Colorado.
For fans of this series, Pearl finally gets her own story. If you've read the original story, you'll notice that I've toned down the love scenes so that a broader group of readers might enjoy reading about the resilient Miss Pearl. Don't worry, sparks still fly between Davidson Smythe and Pearl Lloyd, but readers will get to see more of the love that is deep in their hearts for one another.
“Get ready for a powerful and sexy Western romance with a feisty heroine determined to protect those she loves. Add a tough hero with a dark past and you have a romance that doesn't let you go.” Christina Skye, NY Times Bestselling Author
Pearl Loyd would do anything to keep her ranch and protect her girls. When Davidson Smythe shows up on her doorstep claiming to have bought her ranch, she shoots first and asks questions second.

"The latest Irish Western romance is a fun lighthearted historical starring a feisty female with a terrific right-cross and the man of her dreams with a glass jaw." Harriet Klausner
For Readers who have read the first three books in the series, this is John Reilly's story!
John Reilly is expecting a package from home, something light as a feather and twice as sweet. Little does he realize the package isn’t the baked goods he’s been dreaming of but a grown-up version of the thirteen-year-old girl who used to follow him everywhere.
When John Reilly doesn’t return to County Cork, Ireland, Jessi Fahy boards a ship and tracks him down. She arrives in Emerson, Colorado, hot, tired, and dusty, but he doesn’t recognize her. Five and a half years of waiting in vain, combined with a horrendous voyage and the realization that John doesn’t remember her, have Jessi fisting her hand and testing Mrs. Reilly’s secret weapon. With a wicked right cross, big John Reilly goes down like a stone.
In Book 4 of C. H. Admirand’s Irish Western Series, the temporarily disbanded Committee for the Betterment of Emerson is at it again! This time they accuse Jessi Fahy of setting fire to Peterson’s Stable, injuring Mr. Peterson, brawling in public and ruining the good name of the Flahertys’ foreman, John Reilly.
