Bonnie O'Mara shouldn't have let herself get involved with anyone. She wasn't free. She wasn't safe. She wasn't even named Bonnie. She was only a desperate stranger hiding out at Bell River Ranch, hoping to remain anonymous and stay alive a little longer.

Then she met boyish, irreverent Mitch Garwood, Sheriff Dallas Garwood's younger brother. Mitch hadn't ever met a problem he couldn't charm his way out of...or walk away from. He was the last man on earth who'd want to get mixed up with trouble like her.

But she'd underestimated Mitch. Falling in love with this mysterious, vulnerable woman made a man out of him. When she had to run again, he ran with her. He spent an amazing year at her side, determined to protect her even though she would never tell him from what.

One morning, he woke up, and she'd vanished without a trace. When his frantic searching led nowhere, he dragged his broken heart back to Bell River, and somehow, with the help of his family and hard work, he survived. He's even starting to believe he might love again, someday.

But then, one cold Colorado night, Bonnie O'Mara returns...

THE SUBSTITUTE BRIDE: Once upon a time, Marly Akers had believed that, for better or worse, people made their own luck… 

Marly wonders how she could ever have believed it. Jilted and pregnant, she’s come back to Marietta with her tail between her legs, the blow to her ego huge as she begins working at her family’s small newspaper, the Copper Mountain Courier, and sharing a tiny apartment with her disapproving mom. 

Things can’t get any worse. Or maybe they can. Drake Everett, who secretly captured her teenaged heart and then publicly trampled on it, decides to make her re-acquaintance. Though Drake isn’t the sharp, funny, cocky, arrogant rich boy of yore. These days he seems sharp, funny… and supportive and decent, and Marly realizes she could fall for him all over again… if she listens to her heart. But what about her reporter’s head, which has sniffed out a story that paints Drake as the sweet talker she’s always known…?

THE LONG WAY HOME: At eighteen, Abby Foster had been the cutest little rich gal in Marietta, Montana. She could make boys do whatever she wanted—especially sweet, wild, penniless Joe Carlyle, who adored her. But a lot’s changed in the eight years since Abby broke Joe’s heart by marrying the rich guy her domineering father chose for her. Her father has died, and the “perfect” husband has bolted, taking all the money. More importantly, Abby’s grown up. She’s vowed to stop listening to other people and follow her own heart instead. 

Right now, her heart tells her to return to Marietta. The wildfire she felt in Joe’s arms has haunted her, and, though she doesn’t expect forgiveness, she hopes maybe he, too, would enjoy a brief, no-strings affair. If they can share just the seventy-two hours of Homecoming weekend…well, maybe then they’ll both find it easier to forgive, forget, and move on. 

But when she sees him, she realizes how naive that idea was. The years have changed Joe, too…and the passionate, powerful man he’s become isn’t someone she’ll ever forget. This time the heart she breaks may be her own.
