Welcome to Ian, book 9 in Farraday Country, a twist on the favorite 7 Brides for 7 Brothers theme set in cattle-ranching west Texas, with all the friends, family and fun that fans have come to expect from USA TODAY Bestselling author Chris Keniston.

For Texas Ranger Ian Farraday, nothing beats catching bad guys, except family time in Tuckers Bluff.  When fate steps in and brings him face-to-face with one curvy—and unforgettable—damsel in distress, all it takes is a stray puppy and a few missing cows to turn his ranch vacation upside down.

Attending a wedding isn't supposed to land Kelly Morgan in jail.  Lucky for her, the Farraday men are always ready to save the day—especially one long, tall Texan. Too bad the embarrassing mishap turns out to be the least of her worries. After all, every woman needs a knight in shining armor once—or twice—in a lifetime.

Sometimes one look is all it takes

Thrilled to be visiting her brother in Kona for the birth of his next child, Madeleine Harper and her parents are all set for a quiet family reunion in paradise. That is if Maddie weren't distracted by the naval officer she keeps—literally—bumping into.

Retired Captain Daniel O'Neil is looking forward to two weeks in the sunny Hawaiian Islands to connect with the daughter he barely knows.  Except his plans didn't include a beautiful stranger he can't forget.

More about Look of Love from the author

I was very excited to bring Nick's sister Maddie and their parents to the island for the birth of Nick and Kara's son.  But I absolutely fell in love with Dan O'Neil. I do so love an officer and a gentleman. It was also a special treat for me to revisit Pearl Harbor and the Arizona memorial. I will note, though it did not happen to me, the story of the foreign tourists was true. I always love playing with the friends and family at the Big Island dive shop and I hope you'll have fun with this little story too!

Currently working on the next book in the Aloha series, Chris is having fun bringing love, romance and a few surprises to Billy's sister Ava and the regulars at the Big Island Dive shop.
