Adriana Montague prayed for a way to escape her impending marriage to an arrogant and conceited man she doesn’t love, but never expected it to come in the form of a vengeful thief who steals her ship and kidnaps her. Christian blames Adriana's father for his family’s misfortunes, and boldly claims he’s robbing her and sailing to South America! But Adriana has a few tricks up her sleeve, and though she’s glad to be granted a temporary reprieve from her wedding, she’s not about to let their voyage resemble a pleasure cruise.
Though she also writes suspense and steamy fantasy romance, Ava Bradley’s favorite books to write–and read–are those of fabled yester-year. She has a special affinity for characters she can identify with; the tomboyish heroines such as Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder of Little House on the Prairie. But regardless of the genre she believes every story is better if there’s a guy who gets a girl in the end. To Ava, a book without a Happily Ever After is like a house without a roof.

It seems the perfect place, since her older half-brother is employed there. There's just one thing in her way – the ranch's foreman, Nate Abbott.
Nate has a ranch to run, a vital roundup to get through, and a bunkhouse full of cowhands smitten from afar with a young lady they all consider Our Sophie. So there’s no time – or reason – to consider exactly what her letters might be stirring in him. Then Sophie arrives in Wyoming.

When a woman with a small child crashes her car into his remote mountain gas station, closely followed by an assailant with a silencer-equipped pistol, Miles Goodwin is forced to come out of his self-induced emotional coma to save their lives. Three years of inactive duty seem like they never happened as the ex-cop springs into action. All at once he’s a police officer again, but Miles hasn’t recovered from the tragic deaths of his wife and daughter. He isn’t prepared to take on a beautiful woman and a golden child who remind him of the family he lost.
Six-year-old Annie is delightfully well behaved, twice as mature and intelligent as most children her age. But she’s never eaten a hamburger, watched Sesame Street, or heard of Tinkerbell, and Lily and Miles witness strange occurrences that make them believe the private research facility where Annie was raised is doing more than routine medical studies.
