Bound and Determined
As punishment for his recklessness, Private Bradley Willis is sent on an errand to help a retired cavalry officer move a herd across Indian Territory.

He’s definitely been saddled with more than he’s bargained for.
Tied and True
Wealthy Marianne Lister is in love with business assistant Calvin Hochstetler, but he can’t see past the difference in their social status.

Cowboys, Action, Humor, and History Collide in Connealy’s Latest

When an explosion kills men and damages the CR Mining Company, the Bodens realize their troubles are not behind them as they thought. Shadowy forces are still working against them.

Cole Boden finds himself caught between missing his time back East and all that New Mexico offers. Sure he fights with his siblings now and then, but he does care for them. He enjoys running the mine and, when he’s honest, he admits that Melanie Blake captures his interest in a way no other woman ever has.

Melanie has been a friend to the Bodens forever. A cowgirl who is more comfortable with horses and lassoes than people, she never expected to find herself falling for someone. Particularly for refined Cole Boden, a Harvard graduate who may not stay long at the ranch. She’s determined, however, to help the Bodens finally put an end to the danger that’s threatened all of them. But will putting herself in harm’s way be more dangerous than anyone expected?

Bestselling Romance — New Western Romance Series from Bestselling Author Mary Connealy

When Cimarron ranch patriarch Chance Boden is caught in an avalanche, the quick actions of hired hand Heath Kincaid save him. Badly injured, Chance demands that his will be read and its conditions be enforced immediately.

Without anyone else to serve as a witness, Heath is pressed into reading the will. If Justin, Sadie, and Cole Boden don’t live and work at home for the entire year, the ranch will go to their low-down cousin Mike.

Then Heath discovers the avalanche was a murder attempt, and more danger might follow. Deeply involved with the family, Heath’s desire to protect Sadie goes far beyond friendship. The danger keeps them close together, and their feelings grow until being apart is the last thing on their minds.

You are one of my top favorite authors! My husband hears all about your stories when I'm reading one of your books. The other day, his work required him to drive a truck to a town on Caddo Lake called Uncertain, TX. He said, "Hey, that would be a great setting for a mystery book." Just thought you might like that idea.

I simply love your books. I have read many of them and I have never been disappointed. They are sweet and heart-warming stories that not only have made me laugh and cry, but they also are a reminder of the wonderful things that God can do. I know that the books are fictional, but in my twenty years of life, I have witnessed the power of God work in the life of real people in similar ways, including me. Thank you, Mary, for being part of your ministry and using your remarkable talent for the glory of God. You better believe that it's impacting people's life. God bless you!

This week I went to the library looking for something different to read. Your book spine caught my eye with its fancy writing and a picture of a cowgirl. Whoo hoo! The book was Tried & True. I finished it in 3 days and absolutely loved it! These 3 sisters are a real hoot! I am heading back for the 2nd and 3rd to read, as I put them on my hold list. Keep up the great work and look forward to reading other stories from you. A new avid reader.

I have been a reader since I learned how. I have read many different kinds of books. I love your western romances so much. I enjoyed them so much. It's nice to read a clean romance with great historical reality.

Mary, I so love your books. I grew up reading "romance" novels and they gave me such a false impression of love and kindness. Reading your books and other Christian books these last several years since I joined the LDS church has been such an inspiration to me. I know the books are just fictitious, but they seem so much more real than the smut I grew up on. I love my Heavenly Father and feel sure he agrees with me that you are one of the best writers of Christian fiction and the best example of Christian love there is today. Bless you for your work and keep it up. 😀
