It's 1885 and five preachers sit around a campfire out West, trading stories of unlikely couples they've seen God bring together. This is one of those stories . . .

In which Katie, who has chased off half a dozen suitors with her shotgun, hires a rambling ranch hand who's finding Katie may change his wandering ways.

Everyone in town knows Katie Pearl has no interest in getting hitched. She likes living on her own out on her departed Pa's big ranch, turning down suitors left and right—with a pistol by her side.

But when she needs a strong hand to help with rebuilding her house, Katie hires wandering cowboy Treb Rayburn, knowing he's just in town to make a quick buck and then he'll be off for parts unknown. But Treb's got a heart big as Texas. Their blossoming friendship may change her loner status and his wandering ways for good.

A dog walker with a secret crush and a jilted fireman with no desire to risk watching his heart go up in flames ever again.


Fire Chief Brad Sinclair had his future planned and then his fiancée married someone else and left him and his heart in ashes. He’s started over, seems to have picked up the pieces...but now his brother is getting married and his happy news is stirring up emotions Brad would rather he didn’t feel. When the cute dog walker’s apartment goes up in flames, he suddenly finds himself feeling the heat from attraction and the local ladies who think she’s just what the local hero needs to put his life back on track.


Lulu Raintree is feeling mixed up and out of control—is she a stalker? She’s been obsessed with the gorgeous Fire Chief ever since she moved to town. So much so that she sometimes hides behind bushes just to get a glimpse of him but she avoids coming face to face with him at all cost. When her apartment catches fire there is no place to hide as the handsome hero comes to her rescue.


But things are not as they seem and her past that sent her running to hide in the beautiful beach town of Sunset Bay might be the key to her infatuation with the handsome Brad Sinclair.


Heartaches are hard to get over, can love find a way to mend the broken hearted...and slightly obsessed?

Sometimes a dream might need a rewrite…


Erin Sinclair’s dream of running a successful B&B is on shaky ground. Her tiny Inn is building a good reputation but needs more guest and more good reviews. When a New York Times bestselling author’s agent books the honeymoon suite as a writing retreat it is an opportunity to put The Inn at Sunset Bay on the map. The Nash Bond is coming to her B&B for two months and Erin can hardly believe it. But he has a reputation of being hard to handle when he’s in the midst of a book. And he’s reclusive too. So what is he doing coming to her B&B? And what if she’s unable to satisfy him? What if instead of a good review he gives her a terrible review?


Everything is on the line, is she up for the challenge? She has to be.


Nash Bond needs this book. He needs to get out of the slump he’s in, but a year ago his life changed when he lost his adoptive father, his hero and the words that had once flowed without worry suddenly dried up in his grief. Now his agent is shaking things up by booking him a special room in a special place, her words, and she insist he give it a try. She reminds him his publisher is getting impatient. He knows everything is on the line. He doesn’t like it at all and when he meets the gorgeous, but pushy B&B owner sparks fly. He’s suddenly feeling things he’s never felt before…but with his past he knows all too well that longing for love leaves a person open to pain thus he locked his heart away a long time ago and has no plans to change.


But on the shores of Sunset Bay can romance bloom? Can love heal a broken heart and give him a happily-ever-after he never thought he wanted? Or needed?
