I am writing a few contemporary western romances set in Colorado. I did turn up the heat level for these books, but they are still pretty clean.
Can a “plain Jane” tame a hot as hell cowboy?
Curt Tucker is used to melting hearts, having romanced his way through town, but what he really wants—the only woman he’s ever truly loved—she’s long gone. Jane Carpenter fell hard for the sexy cowboy, but his bad boy ways caught up with him, breaking her heart into a million pieces.
Now… years later… they are face to face again… nothing having changed. Curt, rugged and handsome, is even hotter than she remembered, weakening her resolve not to fall for him again.
He let her go once, but now… nothing will stop him from making her his forever.

Bandit or lawman… this man will take what he wants.
Having the misfortune of being in a bank at the time of a robbery, Nurse Greta Stock treats one of the wounded gunmen, the man shot right before her eyes. The bandit is a handsome devil with a knowing smile, so she had best watch her step with this one, because he might just steal more than her money.
In Silver River on a job, Travis Brooks ends up in the hospital being treated by a winsome blonde with a pretty smile. Although harboring more than one secret, he is here for a reason. He yearns to reveal the truth to Greta, but he must continue the charade, although it might just be the death of him.
A cozy historical romance.
