Runaway Heart

Hearts of Three Rivers

Book 1

8

Don't mess this up. After a tragic accident leaves him the legal guardian of his young nephew, Dane Baylor finds himself with his hands full juggling parenthood with running his family’s cattle ranch. Desperate not to betray the trust his brother put in him, he reaches out for help.


Never put down roots. It’s the hard, fast rule that has kept Ren Maddock and her teenage sister one step ahead of a childhood they’d rather forget. It’s always been an easy one to follow…until Ren replies to a job ad for a homemaker.


For the first time in years, Ren feels like she could believe in happily ever after at the Baylor Ranch with a cowboy who makes her heart sing. But when her past comes knocking, threatening her new family and her new life, she’ll have to make the choice to run again or stand and fight for everything she holds dear.



This book is a part of the Hearts of Three Rivers: The Baylors series. Each book stands alone as a complete read, but features appearances from other family members who may have their own story to tell in a different book. Amity’s stories can best be described as ‘sweet western heat’, and contain open door bedroom scenes, but no frank language.

About the author

I live in New Brunswick, Canada, on a multi-generational hobby farm with my parents, my husband, and my young son, as well as a flock of sheep, a herd of goats, too many herding dogs, several barn cats, and my three horses.


I’ve loved telling stories my whole life and could even be found telling them into a tape recorder in my grandmother’s basement before I could write them. They always included kissing!


I strive to write real, sincere characters that exemplify the small-town sense of community and family I grew up in.


I am deeply inspired by the magic of Peter S. Beagle’s writings (The Last Unicorn changed my life) and had the privilege of meeting him in May 2014. He was impossibly charming and delightful and left a lasting impression on me.


I love critters, cowboys, and coffee (the order of which depends on the day you ask me), and I still believe in unicorns. I hope you enjoy my books!


xoxo,

Amity

Two years and a few dirty secrets stand between them.


For as long as she can remember, Emma Pierce has wanted to leave her sleepy hometown behind. She finally succeeds…and two years later, finds herself back in Three Rivers and face to face with the reason she left—a cowboy she can’t resist.


Noah Baylor has made his fair share of mistakes, and letting the girl next door leave him in a cloud of dust ranks near the top of that list. When Emma rolls back into town, he vows not to let this second chance go to waste. He’s a different man now, who knows what he wants…and what he wants is his best friend, Emma Pierce.


He’s hurt her enough, but the only future Noah wants is one with Emma in it, and time is running out for him to prove it before she walks away for good.

Widower Finn Baylor’s specialty is troubled horses, not troubled people. So when Lily Jacobs shows up with her damaged horse in tow, his first instinct is to tell her to get gone. Still trying to piece himself together, the last thing he needs in his life is a woman who won’t take no for an answer, especially when all he wants to do is say yes.


Reeling from the accident that nearly claimed her life and made her horse unpredictable and dangerous, Lily is desperate to find some kind of normalcy. Out of options, Lily’s last hope for her horse is the brooding Finn, and despite his gruff demeanor, she’s not giving up.


Though he’s done his best to close himself off, Finn finds Lily getting under his skin, and her determined spirit might be the last hope for his heart.

A Cowboy SEAL's Redemption (Travis Nelson & AJ Fletcher) COMING EARLY 2020

It only took eight seconds for Nate Montgomery’s bull riding career to go from brilliant to burned out. Back in Three Rivers with no money and no prospects, he needs to regroup and build an identity for himself that doesn’t involve being thrown around by 1500lbs of fury. He finds reprieve in a familiar package of curves on the other side of the bar at the local watering hole. She’s tall, full-bodied, and sweet, and Nate will gladly come back for a second taste.


Single mother and perpetual girl-from-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks Layla Sullivan is barely holding together the life she’s building for herself and her son. She’s got shift work, squeaky cupboards, a big fat secret, and no time for Nate Montgomery to come waltzing into her life, making her wish for things she can’t have. But this cowboy is as bull-headed as he is sexy, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that having an extra warm, handy body in her house isn’t a bad thing—especially when it belongs to her baby’s father.


When Layla’s family drama comes back to bite her, exposing her secret and threatening the happy little bubble they’ve created, Nate feels bound to repeat the sins of his father. But he’s never been one to give up, and this little family might be just the new life he’s looking for.

Banks Montgomery takes his job as youngest sheriff ever elected in Three Rivers very seriously; the residents of the small town are his family and he takes care of them accordingly. Along with his small horse breeding operation, he’s a man with a plan—one that doesn’t include the distraction of a woman, least of all one that turns up out of nowhere and isn’t what she seems.


Pregnant and abandoned in Three Rivers, Norah Clarke needs to come up with a plan, and fast. Fortunately, she’s always been quick on her feet, and she and the town go way, way back. That doesn’t, however, prepare her for the town’s nosy (and devastatingly handsome) sheriff and all the surprising ways he makes her feel.


When the distraction Norah brings proves to have painful consequences, Banks will have to decide if his comfortable, predictable life is worth putting on the line for the sake of his heart.
