Coast Guard Chief Adam Denton is three things: the fiercest drill instructor, dedicated to serving his country, and a secret romantic. Problem is, his personal life is in shambles. One thing is certain—his job training recruits. A task made difficult by the meddlesome Ms. Tara Knells, and an agenda holding chain of command with a personal vendetta.
Tara just wants to get her life back on track after a devastating arrest that left her on desk duty. So when the opportunity to follow a Coast Guard recruit company lands in her lap, she takes it. If only she could get over her own painful past and history with the organization she's filming, she just might survive the next eight weeks.
Each time they clash, Tara chisels away at Adam's heart until he's completely lost. When they both discover their jobs are in danger, the only thing they have left to hold on to is each other.
She was wrong. Seems no one wanted a female doctor, especially one in mourning. Seeing no other way out, Alice becomes a mail-order bride to a doctor in Hope’s Crossing in the Montana Territory.
Dr. Jeremiah Kilarney, needs help. He needs a nurse to assist him with his patients. Knowing he has to marry the woman or she’ll be inundated with marriage proposals from the lonely miners, he goes to Matchmaker & Co. Specifying his need for a nurse or someone willing to be trained as one, he’s surprised when Alice Carter, doctor, steps out of the stagecoach with her precocious daughter Melly.
Can Alice and Jeremiah have a future when ghosts from her past still hold her heart?
Hope's Crossing can be the answer to their future or the end of their dreams.
