But this single mother has one priority. She’s all Jade has, and she’ll do anything, make any sacrifice, for her child’s future. And getting distracted by a long-lost boyfriend is not on the agenda.
Logan Stafford never forgot the lonely girl from the wrong side of the tracks who broke his heart. Not only is she as irresistible as ever, but her delightfully odd little girl has him wrapped around her finger in no time. Believing they’ve been given a second chance, Logan’s determined to pull out all the stops on the house to prove to them both that he’s a guy they can count on.
But, despite how easy it is to love Logan, second chance is still a gamble Samara can’t afford to take.
*Previously titled Finding Home
Lone Way Home - Kathleen O'Brien
After letting domineering men control her far too long, Abby Foster, plans to do exactly as she pleases. This includes a no-strings weekend fling with Joe Carlyle, if he can forgive her for breaking his heart eight years ago. But Joe's not interested in a fling- this time, he wants forever, and he's got seventy-two hours to make Abby want that, too.
Hometown Hero- Dani Collins
Skye Wolcott always planned to live happily ever after in her hometown of Marietta, but then her marriage imploded in a cloud of scandal. Chase Goodwin has worked hard to get away from his past poverty, but when he comes back to Marietta to help his brother, all the old chemistry he and Skye shared in high school is back. Chase wants Skye to join his fast-paced world, but Skye's a small town girl. Can she convince him that Homecoming is more than a game, and he's back where he belongs?
Sing Me Back Home - Eve Gaddy
Dr. Jack Gallagher hasn't been serious about a woman in a long time, and when the girl who once broke his heart moves back to town, he's not sure if he can take another chance. What's more, they both have teenage daughters now. But there are more sparks between him and Maya Parrish than ever. Can their passionate affair last or will it burn itself out as quickly as it began?
Home For Good- Terri Reed
Joelle Winslow needs her cash share from the family ranch, and fast. But Matt Locke doesn't want to give it to her. Being in Marietta over homecoming weekend makes her realize how much she's missed the ranch... and Matt. Now it's decision time. Will following her dream take Joelle far away from Montana or return her home for good?
Finding Home - Roxanne Snopek
Samara Davis has done it tough her whole life, and now she's back in Marietta with her young daughter, looking for a place to settle down. Logan Stafford is shocked to discover that he's building his high school sweetheart's new house. So much as happened to them both since then, can they really find happiness together?
Austin Sweet is determined to make his wife proud of him again. But he also wants to erase the sting of shame he feels from his parents, to whom he owes a debt of gratitude for arranging for this caretaking job. Getting paid to fix up this disaster is better than living in their basement, sure. But what does he know about bees? Or fixing broken plumbing? Or cleaning a chimney?
But when Austin’s grandfather gives him the farm as a Christmas gift, there’s only one response. Accepting the gift will secure a future that will make his wife even more unhappy than he already is. Refusing the gift will finalize the rift between him and his family, but he’d rather lose them than Melinda. Then he discovers she’s spared him the choice. Austin’s not-so-Sweet side rears up as he determines that he’s done trying to make everyone happy. He’ll get his wife back, no matter what. And they’ll decide their future together.
New Year’s resolutions are great. Announcing them in a crowded bar, with a chocolate martini in her hand? Not Maddie Cash’s finest moment. It’s time this new realtor got serious about her life and this time, she means it.
But when hospital volunteering lands her at the bedside of bruised and battered Mick Meyer, who has no knowledge of Maddie’s reputation – and no memory of the kiss he begged from her during that long, pain-filled night, her best-laid plans are put in jeopardy. It’s not just his sweet tooth that’s tempting her.
The hunky bush pilot with the concussion has an old family property to unload. Making this sale could be Maddie’s professional salvation. But when Mick turns on the charm, she’s in danger of forgetting all her best intentions... on chocolate... on meddling... and especially on men.

When single mother Leda Plett - who’s doing just fine on her own, thank you very much – goes next door to retrieve her wandering pooch, she doesn’t expect to find the neighbor’s handsome brother lounging about like he owns the place. She certainly doesn’t expect him to go after the deadbeat who abandoned her. She’s not looking for a know-it-all white knight with long, lean muscles and a sexy smile. He’s hot, but she’s already been burned.
Rodeo-star turned agent Eric Anders is used to managing people, especially irresponsible males, and he can’t stand it that some jerk has left Leda high and dry. Clearly, the boots-and-sundress wearing mouthy mama needs someone on her side. He could change her life, if only she would let him. And it has nothing to do with the fact that her sparkly exterior hides a spirit that is as sweet as it is strong – and irresistible.
In fact, Leda is more mature than her years. She feels the weight of her mistakes, and wants only to make sure her daughter doesn’t suffer for them. Eric’s hot gaze makes her weak in the knees but Leda’s track record with men is as bad as it is short. Can she trust the cowboy next door?
When Eric’s well-intentioned actions inadvertently reveal a shameful secret from Leda’s past, he realizes she never needed him at all. As he watches her rise above the humiliation, he knows he must find a way to make it up to her, or risk losing the one girl he now can’t live without.
