He stopped for an accident and stumbled upon the one woman he’d been looking for all his life.

From a Readers’ Favorite award-winning author and the “queen of the family saga” (Aherman) comes The Parker Sisters, a new spinoff of the Married in Montana series. 

To everyone who doesn’t know her, dependable EMT Taz Parker is strong, capable, and confident. However, everything about her job terrifies her. She lives in a small Wyoming town, with five sisters, an overprotective father, and no dating prospects on the horizon, considering the lack of available men in the area. That is until one rainy night, while transporting a patient to the next town, she stumbles upon an accident. 

Jerry O’Rourke is only passing through town when he witnesses a roadside accident. When he stops to help at the grisly scene, there’s only so much he can do, so he flags down a passing ambulance. A pretty EMT stops to help, and Jerry is unable to resist her.

Even though he lives in another state, Jerry seeks out Taz just one more time—but what he encounters is a naive young woman from a big family. Taz is beautiful and innocent, and he wonders where she’s been all his life. When he sets his sights on her, he soon realizes that the strong ties Taz has with her family could make having her far more difficult than he could have ever imagined.

THE PARKER SISTERS begins May 31

Three cowboys you can't resist...all in one place!

Meet Dane, Noah, and Finn Baylor, the hardworking Baylor brothers, and the women they love in a series reviewers call 'classically romantic'.

RUNAWAY HEART

Never lay down roots. It's the one hard and fast rule Ren Maddock has stuck to while trying to get by and stay one step ahead of a past she'd rather forget. When she responds to a job ad in Three Rivers, Colorado, she comes face to face with Dane Baylor, a sexy cowboy who makes her want to throw all her rules out the window, regardless of the consequences.

HOMECOMING HEART

Two years and a few dirty secrets stand between them. Emma Pierce left Three Rivers and never looked back, hoping to forget about the one cowboy she can't resist. Blessed with this second chance, Noah Baylor will do whatever it takes to prove that the only future he wants is the one with Emma in it.

SECONDHAND HEART

Finn Baylor fixes horses, not people. So when Lily Jacobs shows up with her damaged horse in tow, his first instinct is to tell her to get gone. Reeling from the accident that nearly claimed her life and her horse's, Lily's last hope for her horse is the brooding Finn. And though he's done his best to close himself off, Lily's determined spirit means she might be the last hope for Finn's heart.

This book contains the Hearts of Three Rivers: The Baylors series. Each book stands alone as a complete read, but features appearances from other family members who may have their own story to tell in a different book. Amity's stories can best be described as 'sweet western heat', and contain open door bedroom scenes, but no frank language.

This is the final part of Chance and Hope's trilogy. We left them in a good place at the end of Finding Hope. Now it's time to see how their story concludes.

Chance is starting to relax and to believe that he and Hope can have a future together. She's moving to Montana to be with him, but will a visit to Summer Lake help him decide to give Hope a chance—or will he find that he can't let go of the past?

Hope knows she's found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Chance keeps talking about their future, but he's a man who doesn't make promises. Ever. She thinks he wants to marry her, but he isn't asking—and how can he? As far as she's concerned, saying "I do" is the most important promise you can make.

The future is looking bright for these two, but will the past always overshadow it?

Chance Encounter is the first book in A Chance and A Hope trilogy. These books are NOT meant to be read as standalones. If you like your entire story wrapped up in one book, you won't enjoy this one. This one is for you if you don't mind journeying with a character who has some healing to do before he's ready for his forever.

                                                        ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Chance knew love once—a long time ago. She died when they were eighteen and the best of him died with her. Since then his work on a ranch in Montana has allowed him to keep his distance from people and from happiness. Eighteen years later, he may be ready to start living again—maybe. He’s watched all his friends find love and embark on the next stage of their lives. Part of him would like to do the same; part of him would rather cling to the past.

He’s hoping that a trip to the Oregon Coast, and a couple of weeks away from his normal life, might help him figure out how he can move forward and maybe even be happy.

It’s taken him eighteen years to get to this point, but a chance encounter on the beach will make him want to figure it all out in just two weeks.

He’s come a long way, but can he really open his heart up to happiness—and to Hope?

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Chance Encounter is the first of three books in A Chance and a Hope Series.
These are not standalone reads. In fact, when you get to the end of this story, you may be faced with a cliffhanger – or you may not. The choice is yours!

What do I mean? Well, when you reach the end of Chapter Twenty you’ll be left with a warm and fuzzy Happy-For-Now. Then you’ll be faced with a choice – read on, all the way up to the edge of a cliff where I’ll leave you hanging, or stop right where you are. If you love a cliffy, you can have one. If you detest a cliffy, you don’t have to deal with it! And if you hate waiting for the next books in a trilogy, don't worry because the series is complete, you can grab Book Two straight away.
