Rogue Bishop was a gambler and a freelance troubleshooter. He attracted trouble like a magnet.

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

When Rogue Bishop and Michael McLean wandered into the deserted mining town in Arizona, they were looking for only one thing-silver.

Spanish grant by L. L Foreman( Book )

The game of cat and mouse had lasted a week and covered many miles before Rogue Bishop tired of it. His pursuer was Rory Ballinashawn, a cowboy who was unwilling to accept his defeat by Bishop at 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 there was a rifle shot, and four gunmen rushed out to halt a passing stage. But the holdup was interrupted by a second group of outlaws, Mexicans this time, who pulled a woman 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

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

5 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 251 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
