Jude and the Barratt Man

When her family leaves Louisiana for Texas, widowed Jude Finley Williams hopes it will mean a start for her, her widowed brother, his eight daughters and her four. But when they learn the ranch they now called home was purchased illegally, Jude must battle with wealthy neighbor, rancher Hughes Barratt for the very roof above her family’s head. When Hughes and four of his sons abduct four of her nieces, Jude declares war. Too bad Hughes takes one look at her and knows–fiery Jude is the woman meant for him!
