The sweetly alluring kindergarten teacher is showing the die-hard bachelor a thing or two about fatherhood. It’s her effect on his libido—and heart—that’s keeping him up nights.
Did Grace really think her crush on Logan would magically vanish when she moved in with him and his adorable little girl? Still, she never thought the broody rancher with the intense baby blues would turn out to be the cowboy of her dreams! All she ever wanted was a real home. Could her place to belong be with this unexpected family man?

But how’s the once-burned bachelor supposed to resist the serene, superefficient redhead who has more than his bottom line working overtime?
Justine Walker could do a lot worse than this tropical Eden. And working with Cal is reaping unexpected benefits.

But when Sam gallantly offers temporary shelter after a fire sweeps through town, it’s the single mother who could end up burned again.
The sassy town sweetheart, her adorable daughter and Sam all together under one roof? The divorced businessman even has the perfect flower for a third date with Faith–the one that could tempt him to risk his heart again. Could love be this money man’s bottom line after all?

Perhaps applying to a Help Wanted ad in her wedding gown wasn’t the best way to make a first impression on a job interview! But Kate Scott needed to escape the humiliation of her hastily called-off wedding. Cabot Dixon’s Montana ranch, if not the most welcoming place in the West, seemed like the perfect place to keep a low profile.
Cabot was a rancher—not a couples’ counselor!—and his past experiences with women (plus the dusty wedding dress) told him Kate was a runner. So when his young son, Tyler, attached himself to Kate and made not-so-subtle hints about wanting her as his mom, the single dad wondered what he’d opened himself up to…especially when he realized that he’d do anything to have the runaway bride by his side for keeps!
