Born in southern Oklahoma, Meredith Fletcher comes by her restless nature honestly. Her father was a Navy man and often moved the family. She attended a succession of schools and learned to love books. (They were the only things she knew that could be folded up and taken with her at a moment's notice!)
After finishing college, she maintained an interest in history, military, and good books, all of which led her to one day believe she could write her own stories. After being invited by Leslie Wainger to write for Femme Fatale, an anthology focusing on three covert spies for the United States government, Meredith went on to write books for the Bombshell line, including Double-Cross and Look-Alike. She also contributed a story to the anthology, Smokescreen.
Meredith likes to spend time with her friends, either at baseball games, shopping, perusing old bookstores (with a preference for ones with wooden floors) or seeing the sights. Even though she's settled down (somewhat), she prefers new experiences and new hobbies, and will often drop everything to go see/hear/do something she's never done before. She loves motorcycles (fast), boats (fast), and has a man in her life (not so fast!). Naturally, her daredevil nature lends itself to exciting tales of romance.
With the town's busiest sales weekend on the horizon, store owner Keeley North is desperate to find help. So when Connor Rafferty walks through her door, he's an unlikely answer to her prayers. The former rodeo star may be a fish out of water in her shop, but he can rise to any challenge. And right now he's set his sights on finding the son he hasn't seen in five years. Keeley can't risk her heart on a scarred cowboy who's searching for something more. But if she can convince him to look beyond the mistakes of his past, Connor may get a second chance to have it all.
Lorsqu'elle découvre qu'elle attend un enfant, Jill Edwards est à la fois folle de joie et atterrée. Depuis déjà longtemps, Grant, son mari, lui reproche de consacrer trop peu de temps à leur couple et de retarder indéfiniment le moment de faire un bébé. La nouvelle devrait forcément le réjouir, les rapprocher ! Sauf que, depuis des mois, leurs disputes sont de plus en plus violentes ; au point que, récemment, à la suite d'une énième explication, Grant a claqué la porte et résolu de s'installer seul en ville. Seul, vraiment ? Le doute ronge Jill, sans nouvelles de Grant ; des rumeurs courent, qui lui attribuent une maîtresse. Dès lors, blessée dans son orgueil comme dans ses sentiments, Jill redoute que son mariage avec Grant ne soit plus qu'un souvenir — et prend la décision de garder sa grossesse secrète.
