about

“Are you sure, baby?”

The father of the bride-to-be noted the concern and confusion on his daughter’s face. Just before her walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overheard a conversation that indicated marrying Sterling Carroll might be a big mistake. Escaping her socialite wedding in Lake Forest, Illinois, she headed west, covering her tracks as she went. In an isolated corner of Wyoming, she swerved her car to avoid hitting a horse and rider on the road, crashing into a tree. She’s rescued by that lone rider – or Ranger, as she fleetingly recalls -- a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance.

Judi just needed some time, to puzzle out the predicament she’d left behind in Illinois. But here she was in the arms of a doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, deep-green eyes and a commanding presence. When Judi dodges his personal questions, not to mention his penetrating gaze, Thomas’ teenage half-sister Becky suggests amnesia as an explanation.  Judi seizes on this foot in the Diamond V door, and stays on as a caretaker for Thomas’ beloved grandmother, who is recovering from hip surgery.  Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as the home health aide Helga slowly unravels. But as she falls hard for her horse whisperer, she fears her secret will only cause him to bolt from her life.  As for Thomas, he knows this impostor is lying, and it wouldn’t be the first time an outsider betrayed his family.  Yet he can’t help but trust this sexy, independent, smart woman who has lassoed his heart.

“Fun and serious all at the same time. Love how the friends intertwine and add new along the way. It was refreshing to read the different stories and having them all come together. Really enjoyed this series!” – 5-star review

“Full of warmth, understanding of human nature, and great characters. They are connected, following the lives of college friends, and by the time you are finished, you feel as if you are a part of their extended circle. A dash of sex here, but not to the point that it overshadows the well thought out storylines. Definitely a feel good experience.” -- 5-star review
