One of those rare books, the kind the reader doesn't want to end. –Green Bay Press Gazette The first in Fern Michaels' bestselling Texas series, Texas Rich introduces us to passionately compelling Billie Ames. . . Young Billie Ames was naive but a real knockout when she met Moss Coleman at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during World War II. Within a few months she was pregnant and married to him. It was a marriage that brought Billie--and her mother, Agnes--across the country to Austin, to a 250,000-acre spread called Sunbridge, and into the world of the Texas rich. Billie works to acclimate to Texas and her new home at Sunbridge, her role as Moss' wife, and the challenges she faces from her social-climbing mother, her gruff and demanding father-in-law, and the events of the world around her. We see Billie grow stronger in heart, mind, and belief as her children are born, her marriage to Moss changes, and she comes into her own as a Coleman--and a woman in her own right. "A big, rich book in every way. . ..I think Fern Michaels has struck oil with this one." –Patricia Matthews "A steaming, sprawling saga. . .As always, Fern Michaels writes a full story with bigger-than-life characters we would look forward to meeting." –Romantic Times "Fine fare for Fern Michaels's fans!" –The Philadelphia Inquirer 302,000 Words

Riley Hayes, the playboy of the Hayes family, is a young man who seems to have it all: money, a career he loves, and his pick of beautiful women. His father, CEO of HayesOil, passes control of the corporation to his two sons; but a stipulation is attached to Riley's portion. Concerned about Riley's lack of maturity, his father requires that Riley 'marry and stay married for one year to someone he loves'. Angered by the requirement, Riley seeks a means of bypassing his father's stipulation. Blackmailing Jack Campbell into marrying him "for love" suits Riley's purpose. There is no mention in his father's documents that the marriage had to be with a woman and Jack Campbell is the son of Riley Senior's arch rival. Win win. Riley marries Jack and abruptly his entire world is turned inside out. Riley hadn't counted on the fact that Jack Campbell, quiet and unassuming rancher, is a force of nature in his own right. This is a story of murder, deceit, the struggle for power, lust and love, the sprawling life of a rancher and the whirlwind existence of a playboy. But under and through it all, as Riley learns over the months, this is a tale about family and everything that that word means.

Everything’s bigger in Texas–including romance, magic, and danger! Katie Chandler has fled fast-paced Manhattan and returned home to a simpler life, working at her family’s feed-and-seed store in Cobb, Texas. In a painfully selfless gesture, Katie had left the sexy wizard Owen Palmer to battle his demons in the magical realm–after all, Katie just seemed to attract evil, which only made Owen’s job a lot harder. But now it seems that trouble has followed her home: Despite the fact that Merlin, Katie’s old boss at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., has assured her that Cobb is free of enchantmen, (magically speaking), Katie begins to notice curious phenomena. Cobb is being plagued by a series of inexplicable petty crimes and other devilish mischief, and after her experiences in Manhattan, Katie knows “unauthorized magic” when she sees it. As this new darkness strikes deep in the heart of Texas, Owen appears (literally) to investigate. Now Katie’s friends and family must show the bad guys why it’s bad luck to hex with Texas, while Katie and Owen combine their strengths like never before to uncover a sinister plot before evil takes root in the Lone Star State. “Enchanting . . .

This set includes all six books of the Texas Trails Series: Lone Star Trail, Captive Trail, Long Trail Home, A Ranger's Trail, Cowgirl Trail, and End of the Trail. The six-book series is about four generations of the Morgan family living, fighting, and thriving amidst a turbulent Texas history spanning from 1845 to 1896. In Lone Star Trail, as much as Judson "Jud" Morgan dislikes the immigrant invasion, he can't help admiring Wande Fleischer. The immigrant is sweet and cheerful as she serves the Lord and all those around her. Can the rancher put aside his prejudice to forge a new future? Through Jud and Wande, we learn the powerful lessons of forgiveness and reconciliation among a diverse community of believers. In Captive Trail, Butterfield Overland Mail Company driver Ned Bright finds a woman, exhausted and injured, lying on the road. With hard work, Ned discovers Taabe Waipu's identity. He plans to unite her with her family, but the Commanche have other ideas. In Long Trail Home, Riley Morgan takes a job at the Wilcox School for Blind Children in an attempt for a new life after the Civil War. By helping the children and the pretty blind woman, Annie, he begins to find renewed hope. But when the school is in jeopardy of being closed and Annie's secret is revealed, Riley attempts to make peace with God despite an uncertain future. In A Ranger's Trail, Texas Ranger Buck Morgan is called to investigate the murder of Leta Denning's husband at the beginning of the Mason County War. He has ties to a German family involved with Dennning's death, which makes Leta question his impartiality. A tentative trail emerges...one forged by respect and bound by vengeance and forgiveness. In Cowgirl Trail, Maggie Porter is desperate to save her ranch as her father's health fails and the cowboys walk off the job. To everyone's surprise, she turns to the town's women for help. The cowgirls must herd, rope, and drive the cattle to the market. With only two days left, outlaws charge the small band in an effort to start a stampede. Will they lose everything? Where will their help come from? In End of the Trail, a high stakes poker game ends with Brooks Morgan holding the deed to his new friend Will's ranch, a vague promise to "take care of Keri," and Will's mysterious demise. When Brooks finally rides to the Raven Creek Ranch, he is greeted by a rifle pointed right at his chest. This is the "Keri" he promised to take care of. As Will's niece, Keri believes the ranch was promised to her. Keri and Brooks both want to save the ranch, but will their differences make that impoosible?

Tres Navarre for his most dangerous case yet. If you think the academic world is deadly dull, you're half right.... When a controversial English professor is found shot to death, Tres Navarre — P.I. and Ph.D. — is the only local academic crazy enough to accept the emergency opening at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Police assure him they already have a suspect, so while they wrap up the open-and-shut case, all Tres has to do is teach three classes, grade on a curve ... and walk in a dead man's shoes. It should be an easy assignment — but one thing Tres doesn't do is easy. When the evidence in the case starts looking a little too perfect, when the killing doesn't stop, Tres takes on some extracurricular research into the heart of an assassin — and lands in a high-stakes game of gangster honor on the darkest streets of San Antonio's West Side....
