Die Bewohner Midnights haben diesen Ort allesamt aus einem Grund zu ihrem Zuhause gewählt: Das texanische Städtchen ist klein und ruhig. Und damit ein perfektes Versteck. Doch wovor verstecken sie sich? Allein Bobo Winthrop, der Besitzer des Pfandhauses, scheint von jedem in der Stadt etwas zu wissen. Da ist Bobos neuer Untermieter, der seine Wohnung nur nachts verlässt. Oder die Esoterik-Lady, die behauptet, eine Hexe zu sein. Als Bobos Freundin Aubrey verschwindet, fangen die Einwohner an, Fragen zu stellen. Zu viele Fragen, denn plötzlich drohen Geheimnisse ans Tageslicht zu kommen, die besser verborgen geblieben wären ...

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?

"Dell takes you on a fun, wild ride!" —B.J. DANIELS, New York Times Bestselling Author Rough and tumble, cocky and charming, Joe's everything a rodeo superstar should be... And he's way out of Violet's league. Violet Jacobs is fearless. At least, that's what the cowboys she snatches from under the hooves of bucking horses think. Outside the ring, she's got plenty of worries rattling her bones: her young son, her mess of a love life, and lately, her family's struggling rodeo. When she takes business into her own hands and hires on a hotshot bullfighter, she expects to start a ruckus. She never expected Joe Cassidy. Joe came to Texas to escape a life spiraling out of control. He never planned on sticking around, and he certainly never expected to call this dry and dusty backwater home. But Violet is everything he never knew he was missing, and the deeper he's pulled into her beautiful mess of a family, the more he realizes this fierce rodeo girl may be offering him the one thing he never could find on his own.

There’s a secret in Rose Landro’s eyes, a mystery that Special Ranger Tanner McCade is determined to uncover.
