Rogue Bishop was a gambler and a freelance troubleshooter. He attracted trouble like a magnet. This time the trouble started with a brawl in a small border town in Mexico--and continued with Shamrock O'Terran, who was half child, half woman and all spitfire.

Texas wasn't big enough for gambler and gunfighter Rogate "Rogue" Bishop. He'd been invited to come to Cedar Valley to help settle the range war. But once it was over, the gunhands and hardcases were no longer welcome. Rogue figured that Mexico, some three hundred miles away, was his best bet - and that Ceder Valley would be his last troubleshooting job. Despite the fact that he was on the Texas Rangers' list, when trouble erupted at the Hatchet Ranch, the temptation for one last troubleshooting job proved too great for Rogue. The Hatchet Ranch owner's daughter is missing, and Rogue needs the handsome reward money being offered to bring her back safely to her father. Soon, the blast of six-guns rips across the valley and Rogue Bishop is in the middle of the gunfire

Lew would gamble his life to have either the gold or the woman alone - but now he wanted both! Lew Reagan, the Longrider, did a lot of things he wouldn't have talked about in polite company - if he'd ever been in polite company. But he didn't steal from friends. Now he was on the prod for a former partner - a man as tough and wily and fast as Reagan - a man who'd cheated Reagan out of his share of $40,000 in gold and a good-size ranch. Along the way he'd picked up a girl who had a claim on the ranch herself - and whether she wanted it or not, she was establishing a claim on REagan, too ... whether he wanted it or not

The journey of Texans seeking independence from Mexico was long and bloody, dating back to the historic time when the Mexican government combined the districts of Texas and Coahuila. The Coahuilans outnumbered the Texans five to one, and were able to overrule any legislation the Texas district favored. The result? The Battle of San Jacinto. Amid the chaos, Dain Galway and Cleo were hunted like animals. Though Dain was prepared to meet trouble head-on, one question was uppermost in his mind: why were they constantly forced to hide? Only Cleo could answer that question. The secret was hidden in her birth

Gambler, gunman, knight errant, Rogue Bishop again faces his old foe, Don Ricardo de Risa, the shrewd, ruthless Mexican bandit king in this taut story of danger and pursuit. When Rogue Bishop and Michael McLean wandered into the deserted mining town in Arizona, they were looking for only one thing-silver. Rogue had rescued McLean in the desert; in gratitude, Mike had told Bishop about a cache of hidden coins in an old ghost town. What they found instead was an over-the-border horse-stealing operation-and these bandits were not about to let their two uninvited guests get away alive

Every cattle drive that left Texas met with disaster. Men were killed, herds disappeared, and the few survivors who made it back home were broken and penniless.

His name was Mike Gould, and after losing his own herd, he signed on with a drive that was headed straight for Jayhawker territory. His boss was a high-spirited feline beauty who didn't know the dangers he faced. But Mike knew. Sooner or later, the marauding Jayhawkers would attack and he would be ready for them. Ready with plans that would mean the end of the Jayhawkers' reign. . . or the end of Go-to-hell Gould

Spanish grant by L. L Foreman( Book )

10 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The game of cat and mouse had lasted about a week and had covered many a mile before Rogue Bishop tired of it. His pursuer was Rory Ballinashawn, a lanky cowboy with an Irish brogue who was unwilling to graciously accept his defeat by Bishop in a game of poker. Bishop had stopped and waited, without fear, for the young cattleman to catch up. The problem had to be settled, probably with six-guns. As the two men confronted one another a stagecoach came into view. Suddenly there was a rifle shot, and four American gunmen rushed out to halt the stage. But the holdup was interrupted by a second group of outlaws, Mexicans this time, who drove off the Americans and pulled a woman, a kicking, clawing, screaming wildcat, from the stage. Ballinashawn's and Bishop's chivalry was aroused, and the erstwhile opponents joined forces and went to her rescue. They were soon in the middle of an intrigue involving a pretty young heiress and a Spanish land grant claimed by two ruthless adversaries, each of whom wanted the girl in his power--and Bishop and Ballinashawn out of the way.--P. [3]

Gunfire men : a Western trio by L. L Foreman( Book )

4 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first short story, "Last Stand Mesa," from the San Saba to Dodge City, and many places in between, there were men who remembered Mike McLean -- too many of them. That's why his long dodge is finally over -- and why he now has to make his last stand. "Powdersmoke Empire" sees a wild town -- a hangout for gunmen, thieves, and outlaws -- under the protection of Big Mac. And the ramrod of the mob was Bain Foyle, Big Mac's Number One Man. Honesty was a dangerous luxury here, but for Bain Foyle it would become a priceless necessity. "The Mustang Trail" features Rogue Bishop, who looks exactly like what he is -- a sharp-edged, tougher than nails, gun-slinging gambler. Usually he sticks to poker and bets straight on his own nerve. But this time he's playing on luck -- to catch a horse thief. It's his biggest gamble ever -- a cutthroat game right down to the last chip
