Ford Marshall returns to Wyoming temporarily to help his brothers run the Circle M. He's looking forward to some hard work, but also peace and quiet—until Caroline Donnelly hijacks his ranch for her program to help troubled teens.
Now he's got unruly kids to deal with, a thousand chores and a growing attraction to Caroline that he isn't sure he wants to deny. But Ford has nothing to offer a hometown girl. He has to return to his job in the city at some point soon—his brothers depend on that outside income to keep the ranch afloat. So why can't Ford get the idea of a Wyoming wife, and coming home for good, off his mind?
Lynnette Kent lives on a farm in southeastern North Carolina with her six horses and six dogs. When she isn’t busy riding, driving or feeding animals, she loves to tend her gardens and read and write books.

And why, after a two-year hiatus, did he agree to a new exhibit of his work? Most of all, how is it that Dylan can make a city girl like Jess imagine staying at the Circle M forever?
Jess is so busy working on the handsome rancher's defenses that she doesn't realize he is quietly eroding her own. She came looking for a story that would save her job and do justice to Dylan's sculptures. But when it comes to Dylan, Jess discovers that the real story might be about finding her true home.
