They’re in love, engaged and wildly over scheduled and over extended. There never seems to be enough time in the day for Lora to go to school, learn what she needs to run the corporation her daughter inherited, and take care of the two most important people in her world — her fiancé and her daughter. There are days when she’s not sure she’s eaten or not, much less what important things might have fallen through the cracks.
Chad’s madly in love with Lora and being as patient as he can while she navigates a new world of independence, financial security and being loved by a man she can trust. Seven-year-old Mercy is his daughter in every way that matters to him but he’s eager to make their family connection permanent and secure.
Into the chaos of their too busy lives comes a family emergency back in Texas. When Chad’s father is injured on the range, Chad, Lora and Mercy head for the Blue Star Ranch to pitch in with the spring round up. With the Lowell family gathering to care for each other and help on the ranch, Lora finds the direction she’s been missing. Her vicious ex stole years of her life. Now she has to catch up with the world, and refocus on those she cares for.
Chad and Lora fell in love on the Texas range. Maybe coming back is just what they need to find their way back together … and forward.

Megan Flannigan wants only two things in life: to run her bakery The Rise and Shine, and to avoid the handsome and insufferable Officer Caleb Thornton.
Caleb has made her life difficult ever since he arrested her over a decade ago, and her one wish is that he leaves her alone—while they both continue to deny the attraction that sparks between them every time they meet.
Her wishes are dashed when her bakery is robbed. To make matters worse? Caleb is assigned to the case—and now he’s the officer charged to protect Megan from a dangerous criminal.
Caleb Thornton decided to become a police officer to atone for a tragic adolescent mistake. As part of the famously rich and privileged Thornton family, he’s always been aware of how he can never measure up to his family’s expectations.
As a result, he follows the letter of the law in both his job and his personal life—except when it comes to the beautiful and fiery Megan. She makes him yearn for something more, and she attracts him as much as she frustrates him. When Caleb is assigned to watch over Megan, he’s forced to reconcile the feelings he’s harbored for her for years.
But as danger draws closer to Fair Haven, Megan and Caleb must come to grips with the past—or risk losing the love of a lifetime.
