Apollonia Lord has devoured historical romance novels since she was a toddler. (Seriously. She nibbled on the edges of her mother's paperbacks as a baby. Now she is a bit more conventional in her reading experiences.) Based in Texas, she is a teacher by day and a writer at night.
Soon after Hester takes the job, she develops feelings for her employer and he reciprocates, but Jonathan is newly engaged. Hester then discovers his fiance is none other than her own stepsister, Melanie, who she hasnt seen in ten years.
Since Hester has taken on a different name and is now a grown woman, she is able to conceal her identity for a while, but not the growing attraction she has for Jonathan. Hester tries to fight the feelings she shares with Jonathan, and to keep her identity a secret, but Melanie finds Hester wearing the locket, causing her to discover who Hester really is.
Will her stepsister ruin everything for Hester, forcing her to leave once again? Or has destiny brought Hester back to the family she left behind and to the man she was meant to have.

The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose—and her mind has been shattered...
When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him—and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past—and the threat that follows in her wake—will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.
