Paperback & ebook, 236 Pages
June 9, 2020 by Wholesome Hearts Publishing


She’s fresh out of jail . . .
He’s fresh out of luck.

Spoiled billionaire heiress Emery Brighton indulges in one mimosa too many, attempts to steal a horse, and winds up in jail. A sentence of community service leaves her at the mercy of strangers on a remote ranch near a small town in Oregon. Adjusting to country life is hard enough, but she has no idea how to handle her growing affection for a surly cowboy and his adorable daughter.

Steady and dependable as the day is long, rancher Hudson Cole just wants to raise his little girl and be left alone. When his grandmother invites a lawbreaker dressed in Louis Vuitton to Summer Creek Ranch, Hud is convinced Grammy has lost her ever-loving mind. Determined to detest Emery, he instead finds himself doing the one thing he vowed would never happen again: falling in love.  

With one foot out the door, will love be enough to convince Emery to stay?

This sweet romance offers a funny, delightful happily ever after adventure in a quirky small town. One-click to read about a meandering goat named Ethel, meddling matchmakers, and a community that feels like home in a story filled with heart, humor, and hope. The book includes a Reader's Guide with questions perfect for Book Club meetings.

“What in the world were you thinking, Grammy? Bringing that drunken ninny here?” he asked, helping himself to a slice of chocolate cake left from dinner. He took a bite as Nell added ingredients to the oatmeal concoction she layered in a slow cooker. “Have you lost your mind? She can’t stay, Grammy.”

“I promised her father and Henry we’d keep an eye on her, Hudson. You’ve got to do this. She’s a young lady in need of our help.”

“I don’t have to do anything. I wasn’t the one making promises when I had no business doing it.” Hud sighed, thinking about the way Miss Emery Brighton had turned up her nose in disgust earlier when the ranch dogs wandered over and sniffed her legs. “From what I’ve seen, she is no lady, and the only help I foresee giving her is a swift kick to her designer-covered backside. What kind of influence do you think she’ll be over Cricket?”

“A good one, I hope,” Nell said, glancing at Hud as she set the lid on the slow cooker and adjusted the cooking time. “Just give her a chance. I think you’ll find she’s not nearly as horrible as you expect.”

“Come on, Grammy. Who are you trying to kid? She got drunk at breakfast, tried to steal a horse, and attempted to bribe a police officer before threatening him. I don’t want her around my daughter.”

“Well, she’s staying whether you like it or not, so you better get used to the idea. Henry and James have been good friends for years and years. I won’t disappoint them.” Nell wiped her hands on a dish towel then gave Hud a look he knew all too well. One that sized him up and found him lacking.
