"I've waited years for a husband." Beth stopped in front of Tanner, her hazel eyes flashing indignantly. "To have someone who would wake up in my arms each morning, a baby to rock to sleep. Isn't that what all women dream of? So why am I so bad for wanting the same things?" "You're not as long as you know I'm not good husband material." Tanner took a deep breath and tried not to reflect on what he could see beneath her sheer nightgown. "But you think you can soothe my hurts and make me care about you enough that I'll change my ways." "I don't give a fig about your hurts." Tanner didn't want to stop, "You think that beneath this rough exterior there's a man worth saving, worth turning into a husband. You're wrong." God, how he wanted her even when she was pushing him, making him feel things he'd long forgotten. He still wanted to feel her arms around him, even while he was trying his best to push her away. "I have a man waiting for me. Why would I want a coldhearted bastard like you?" "Because the man waiting for you, doesn't make you feel like this," he said as he pulled her into his arms.

The Outlaw Takes A Bride
Tanner Burnett sat in the stagecoach dressed like a banker, the string tie around his neck feeling like the noose he’d been running from for the last ten years. The wooden coach rocked and rattled along the bumpy road, dust rising from the spoked wheels, through the open window, and settling on the black suit he detested.
God, he didn’t want to be here, dressed like this, waiting. Yet there was no way to change the past, and he didn’t feel like trying. But there was a box of gold on this stage; the contents of the strongbox could go a long way toward his freedom.
He sighed and glanced across the seat at the beautiful young woman with burnished red hair and hazel eyes; she was the only thing about this trip that had been pleasant so far. She’d definitely made the scenery much better than the rolling hills of the Texas hill country.
The other passenger, who sat beside him, was an older woman on her way to visit her daughter. The three of them were cooped up inside this hot dust catcher rolling toward Fort Worth.
The name of the city conjured up images of home and family, images he quickly pushed away. Those memories belonged to another man, another lifetime, and he could never go back. He could never face his family again and let them see the man he’d become.
