Marguerite will let nothing stop her from realizing her dream of running a horse-breeding ranch—not lack of money, and certainly not her strong attraction to Booze Kelly. Much as she misses a man’s embrace, a schoolmarm can’t risk everything she has for him.
But there’s nothing Booze loves more than a challenge, whether it’s a new enterprise to begin—or a lady to beguile. Despite her convictions, can Marguerite continue to resist Booze—or will Booze be exactly what she never knew she was missing?
Cultured, elegant German twins, Ava and Ina Biermann, arrive in town to marry the Carmichaels, and Jed and Jethro couldn’t be happier.
But their ma, Penny – toughest and best fighter in the history of Tent Boxing, and all ’round good ol’ gal – ain’t happy about it at all. For one thing, she figures those girls too dang pretty – and for another, their long slender musicians’ fingers look too useless to do any real work.
On top of all that, Opal’s father, the horrible Otis Trigger, has found out where she is! He’s on his way to Come-By-Chance to take his revenge on his daughter, and rob the bank while he’s at it. Trigger’s found just the right man to help him too, and busted the man out of jail – all legal-like.
Yes, it’s the diabolical Slim Jim Murdoch. And the evil man has had plenty of time to plot his revenge on the decent Come-By-Chance townsfolk.
Trigger and Slim Jim are not about to let a pair of long-fingered musicians, the Wilkinsons, ol’ Wally Davis, the Sheriff and Opal, or the rest of the Come-By-Chance crew stand in their way!
The Come-By-Chance books are jam-packed with gun-totin’ adventure, intrigue and true love, all set in 1880s frontier America.

It’s been four years since Jennie’s husband died in a farming accident. Long enough that the elders in her Amish community think it’s time to marry again for the sake of her seven children. What they don’t know is that grief isn’t holding her back from a new relationship. Fear is. A terrible secret in her past keeps her from moving forward.
Mennonite book salesman Nathan Walker stops by Jennie’s farm whenever he’s in the area. Despite years of conversation and dinners together, she never seems to relax around him. He knows he should move on, but something about her keeps drawing him back.
Meanwhile, Leo Graber nurtures a decades-long love for Jennie, but guilt plagues him—guilt for letting Jennie marry someone else and guilt for his father’s death on a hunting trip many years ago. How could anyone love him again—and how could he ever take a chance to love in return?
In this second book in the Every Amish Season series, three hearts try to discern God’s plan for the future—and find peace beneath the summer sun.

Nova no mundo da paixão, lady Valeria Arnold não sabia muito bem o que fazer com o desejo que a arrastava para Teagan Fitzwilliams. Aquele boémio não passava de um patife com a sorte do seu lado, e não era o tipo de homem a quem pudesse confiar o seu coração.
Órfão desde muito pequeno, Teagan Fitzwilliams desprezava o papel que lhe tinha sido imposto pela sociedade. Todavia, até àqueles momentos roubados com lady Valeria, nenhuma mulher o tinha feito sentir assim; ninguém o tinha feito desejar mudar de vida e fazer com que aquela dama fosse sua para sempre.
