Once Burned

Henry Hammond and Lindsay Miller are in Northstar for a wedding, but neither of them feels like celebrating. Lindsay has sworn off men until her son is old enough not to be hurt by them, but she’s drawn to Henry, a man devastated after learning that his son isn’t his.

Henry is in no mood to entertain ideas about starting a new relationship, but when Lindsay boldly introduces herself, he’s intrigued. She’s strong and fiercely independent but also vulnerable and burned-out from dating the wrong men. Factor in an immediate physical pull, and they’re in trouble. Past mistakes warn them to keep their distance, but an offer of a one-night stand turns into a week-long adventure that soothes both their hearts.

They may have a shot at the kind of love that lasts a lifetime, but first they’ll have to learn to trust again, and trust isn’t something that comes easily to either of them.

Five years after his wife died in his arms, Aaron Hammond doesn’t think he’ll ever be ready to love another woman, but Skye Hathaway's arrival in Northstar will test that theory.

 

Skye is still reeling from walking in on her philandering husband and his mistress, and with the ink not yet dry on her divorce, the last thing she needs is to get tangled up with a handsome widower and his charming daughter. With those sad eyes and a patient attentiveness, Aaron could be exactly the soothing balm her bruised heart needs, but she has every intention of steering well clear of him… until his adorable little girl decides to take matters into her own hands.

 

Wounded and wary after her failed marriage, Skye immediately captures Aaron’s attention. As he coaxes her out of her painful memories, he finds himself facing an intriguing possibility—that life may yet have a lasting love in store for him. But can he let go of his wife and open his heart fully to Skye? Because Skye won’t compete with a ghost for his heart. She has been competing with other women for her husband for too long, and she deserves better.

A NOTE ON THE CONTENT: The Northstar books are contemporary romances and contain some profanity and sensual scenes that may not be suitable for sensitive readers.

Will an act of selfish brutality bring lifelong friends Beth Carlyle and Nick Hammond closer together… or will the trauma drive them apart?


At the start of her final year of college, Beth’s greatest worries are passing all her classes and enjoying her last months of freedom before she steps into the future she’s dreamed of all her life. When her boyfriend turns violent after a fun night on the town, that future shatters. Forget those kids she wanted and forget ever enjoying a man’s touch again. All she has left is her family’s ranch… and Nick.

 

When Nick jumps in to protect Beth, his future is thrown into chaos. He’s always been sure of his life’s path—when his father retires, he’ll inherit his family’s sprawling ranch. It’s the only life he wants, and he might lose it all if he can’t convince his family he’s doing the right thing by defending Beth in the aftermath of that awful night. As the boundaries of their relationship shift, a love neither expected takes root, but unless Beth can find the courage to keep Nick from facing undeserved consequences, this tentative hope for a future together will wither.

A NOTE ON THE CONTENT: The Northstar books are contemporary romances and contain some profanity and sensual scenes that may not be suitable for sensitive readers.

Lindsay Miller and Henry Hammond aren't looking for love, but a pact to have a little fun together may turn into something a lot bigger… and last a lot longer than her vacation.

 

Lindsay has sworn off men until her son is old enough not to be hurt by them, but on a kid-free vacation to see her best friend married off, she has a chance to remember that she’s a woman with needs and not only a struggling single mother. A casual fling with a willing cowboy might be just what she needs, and Henry fits that description.

 

Devastated after learning that his son isn’t his, Henry is in no mood to entertain ideas about starting a new relationship, but when Lindsay boldly introduces herself, he’s intrigued. She’s fiercely independent but also vulnerable and burned-out from dating the wrong men. A mutual agreement for a one-night stand turns into a week-long adventure, and even after Lindsay returns home to Washington, Henry can’t stop thinking about her. This could be the real deal, but how can he prove that she and her son are more than a rebound family for him when they’re seven hundred miles away?
