Landry Mitchell made a mistake returning to his home town when he was released from prison. The residents of Rocky Ridge, Colorado aren’t the forgive-and-forget type. Now all he wants is to be left alone.


A woman who needs to be needed

Olivia Harding learned the hard way that her worth is measured only by what she does for others. Now, she spends her days caring for orphaned children and those less fortunate than herself.


Olivia is determined to help Landry to rebuild his life, whether he likes it or not. He doesn’t. And he sure doesn’t like the way he’s starting to care about Olivia. He can’t offer her a future when he doesn't have one himself.


As their feelings for each other grow, Landry starts to believe they might have a future together.


Then trouble comes back to town …

About the author

Margery is the author of more than twenty-five novels, novellas and short stories in various genres. Although she grew up as far away from the old west as possible, she has always admired the men and women who settled the untamed land west of the Mississippi. Glued to TV westerns like Maverick, Rawhide and Gunsmoke, and reading stories of Annie Oakley, Roy Rogers and Rin Tin Tin, it was only natural that when she started writing, she wrote what she loved to watch and read. She now lives on a lake in Canada with her husband, and when she’s not writing or travelling in search of the perfect setting for her next novel, you can usually find her wielding a pair of knitting needles or a pool cue.

When Kathryn Higgins learns that her actions may be harming her father’s health, she knows she needs to leave not just his house, but that she has to go far enough away that he can’t persuade her to come home. Although she comes from a wealthy family, she has no money of her own and no way to support herself. Her only option is to become a mail-order bride.


Pete Fallon has always been happily unmarried—until now. All his friends are married and constantly point out that one day, he’s going to be old and alone. He has thought about that lately, and he wouldn’t mind marrying and having a family of his own. But he won’t marry because he won’t allow himself to love a woman who’ll use that love against him. When his friend suggests he get a mail-order bride, he realizes this might be the solution to his problems, as long as his bride understands he will never love her.


Kathryn’s arrival in Sapphire Springs, Texas brings problems of its own. She expects a carpenter and businessman, not a man who has no ambition, is content to spend his days fishing, in his garden or with his friends. Pete, on the other hand, had no idea he’d sent for a woman who grew up in luxury and who has never worked a day in her life.


However, as they get to know each other, feelings grow and Pete starts to think that perhaps he was wrong about Kathryn, that maybe she is a woman he could love.


Then tragedy strikes, forcing Pete and Kathryn to face their pasts, but the lessons they must learn could destroy the life they’ve built with each other forever.
