What happens when you meet a man you can’t take home to meet your parents?

— “Eckhart has done it again-she is a masterful author that leaves you begging for more!” Katie Orost

Author Lorhainne Eckhart returns with a brand-new generation of Friessens in an engrossing romance series about family, commitment, hope, and making relationships work. In this Friessen Family novel, an unexpected proposition leaves a young woman tempting fate, pursuing a love that will inevitably end in heartbreak.

She looked him straight in the eyes, those blue eyes that were so intense. She wondered what they’d be able to get her to do. She was smart, level headed, and not lacking in self-confidence. She loved who she was, she had a family who loved her, and yet here she was, sitting here, discussing giving something to a man she would never have considered giving to anyone.

Living on her parents’ ranch in the middle of nowhere, Becky Friessen realizes most people would give anything to be part of her family and have the kind of love her parents have, but she needs more than quiet and stability. She craves excitement, action, a spark of adventure—and she won’t let anyone steer her into something she doesn’t want to do, living in a quiet piece of the world where nothing ever happens.

That is until she meets a man who shocks her with an indecent proposal that she finds herself actually considering. He’s a man she could never tell her parents about, a man she could never take home to meet the family. However, fighting this insane attraction between them could drive her down a one-way road to heartbreak.

— “The Friessens are Back! Well written and powerful, the characters are unforgettable and you won't be able to put the books down” – Patti. B

— “This book is one of the most emotionally provoking books I have read in a long time. Typical of Eckhart's writing, the characters are realistically genuine and heartfelt and the story is non-traditional enough to cause angst for the beloved Friessen family.” aherman

How do you tell a man there is something wrong with his child?


—    This is by far one of the best books I have read. Lorhainne Eckhart proved herself yet again by pulling you in with a heartfelt story and keeping your attention with the passion that fills the pages. -- ROMANCE JUNKIES

—    I didn't expect I'd fall for the four main characters as hard as I did, but The Forgotten Child is an amazing book, not just for a romance fan like myself, but for single parents who may or may not have a child with autism.-- Reviewer -- Adria

—    A Real Tear Jerker: Omg, I loved this book. I stayed up all night trying to finish it. I cried, My heart broke, I have an 18 year old with autism. This would make a fabulous movie... Tammy

—    "Brilliant, there is no other word for it, heart grabbing, heart warming, gut wrenching, well written well researched, wanted to read it over & over again." - Maureen

In THE FORGOTTEN CHILD, Brad Friessen wasn't looking to love again. But what he got was a woman who shook his lonely bitter world upside down, and touched him in a way no other woman could.

Emily Nelson, ends a loveless, bitter marriage and strikes out on her own. She answers an ad as a cook and live-in caregiver to a three-year-old boy on a local ranch. Ranch owner Brad Friessen hires and moves in Emily and her daughter. But Emily soon discovers something's seriously wrong with the boy, and the reclusive, difficult man who hired her can't see the behavior and how delayed his son is. Emily researches until she stumbles across what she suspects are the soft signs of autism. Now she must tell him, give him hope, and help him come to terms with this neurological disorder--to take the necessary steps to get his child the help he needs.

As their lives become intertwined, their attraction is unavoidable--a connection sparks between them. But just as they're getting close, Brad's estranged wife, Crystal, returns after abandoning the family two years earlier.

Crystal must've had a plan, as she somehow gains the upper hand, driving a wedge in the emotional bond forged between Brad, Emily, and the children. The lengths to which Crystal will go, the lies, the greed, just to keep what's hers, are nothing short of cold and calculating.  Brad fights to save his boy, to protect what's his, and struggles over his greatest sacrifice--Emily, and the haunting question: Has he lost her forever.

The Forgotten Child is the first book in The Outsider Series, the beginning of this romantic family saga of the Friessen men and the women they love, which now spans three series.  The Forgotten Child is a love story between the oldest of the Friessen brother's Brad and Emily, a woman he hires to take care of his autistic child.

He can have any woman, except the one he wants.

“You can't help but fall in love with Neil and Candy. Neil is Candy's knight in shining armor” – Reviewer – April

“It is nice to know that a story can be so powerful that a man can consider a woman's feelings and show her that love can conquer all and be lover's and friends” – Reviewer – Theresa

In THE UNEXPECTED STORM, Candy McRae is barely making ends meet. She's heartbroken and alone with her horses and baby donkey living hand to mouth on the most sought after oceanfront property. Everyone wants it, including the wealthy hunk who owns the estate next door. And when he offers to buy it she refuses. His first mistake was asking her out. His second was not meaning it. Even though he could solve all her problems, she'd rather sell to the devil himself.

Smart and sexy Neil Friessen is quite the catch. He's not only drop dead gorgeous with a body women dream of. He's wealthy, stubborn, arrogant and thoughtful. He attracts women, and million dollar deals, and plans to build a resort on the property next to his. He has the plans, the money, and the resources. The only thing standing between him and his sweet deal is the dark haired beauty who owns the property he wants.

When a storm forces everyone to evacuate Candy refuses to leave her animals, and her property. But it's Neil who shows up, Neil who rescues her. Except by the time he finds her, vulnerable and hurt, they can't get out. Neil is alone with the one woman he's always wanted. And he'll have to choose between this dark haired beauty that fills his dreams every night, and building his million dollar resort.
