The Texas Anthem Series

Kerry Newcomb

St. Martin's Paperbacks

With sweat, blood, and tears, John Anthem carved out a home on the Texas frontier, a ranch that was two days' ride from end to end. But while Anthem made the Slash A in his own image, his sons were born with Texas restlessness in their blood. Cole Anthem went off to fight a war. Billy Anthem has his sights set on goals of his own. Then a Mexican outlaw came after John Anthem--and struck a savage blow against his family.

Now Anthem must turn away from his empire and ride against his sworn enemy. And when he does, he will not be alone. Because when fate and outlaws take on the Anthems, a wounded family will come together--as good men and brave women are willing to fight and die for honor, justice, and the future of their land...
