It might be the pride of hard work on rugged terrain, the welcoming community, or the memories–but wherever the folks of Morgantown may roam, they have a way of coming back to the ranch . . . 

There’s a reason Jackson Lymond left the Air Force, but he’s not telling a soul. He’d rather keep things simple while trying to start a new life helping his older brother on their northern California ranch. At least Morgantown’s flirty local bartender can keep his mind off the past–that is until he runs into Daisy Miller.

Daisy doesn’t really expect Jackson to remember her. Back in school, she did her best to blend in–and pretend she didn’t have five brothers who’d hogtie any boy who even looked at her. These days though, she and Jackson might have more in common than just their ranching relatives. After all, they both left home only to return. Trouble is, under the watch of her fiercely protective family, Daisy is longing for some privacy. Letting Jackson into her life could make that even more difficult–or it might be the second chance they’re both looking for.

Titles in The Millers of Morgan Valley series include – The Second Chance Rancher – The Rancher’s Redemption –

(Note: The Millers of Morgan Valley is a spin-off series of The Morgan Ranch series.  While some characters from the original series do make appearances in the spin-off series it’s not really necessary to have read The Morgan Ranch to enjoy The Millers of Morgan Valley – but – it is a great series that you really shouldn’t miss if you love Modern Western Romance, in my opinion.)

If you can’t stand the heat… 

Lam Draeger’s deep wounds from the death of his young son and his subsequent divorce were still healing when he was saddled with his running his family’s cattle and rodeo stock ranch and the responsibility of raising his siblings and keeping them out of trouble. His every moment is devoted to running the ranch and business smoothly. He’s had no time to mourn his many losses or try to rebuild his personal life. And romance? Out of the question, no matter how sweet the temptation. 

…don’t fall in love in the kitchen 

Single mom Gwen Hobbs is right back where she swore she’d never be – cooking in the kitchen at the Draeger ranch just like her mom before her. But since her fiance and the father of her daughters walked out on her, taking all their savings with him, she’s forced to be practical. So she vows to ignore the attraction that hums between her and Lam and to stop dreaming of becoming a chef. But when Lam suggests she audition for a cooking competition, Gwen realizes that not all her dreams are out of reach, and her growing hopes extend far beyond a professionally tricked-out kitchen.

Titles in the Draegers of Last Stand, Texas series include – Sweet on the Cowboy

(This series is part of the Last Stand, Texas group of connecting series.  (think Marietta, Montana– Tule Publishing’s other large set of somewhat connecting series set in a fictional town)

He’s the man she left behind, but never forgot… Laurel Moore might have had to leave her prized job as an assistant chef in one of NYC’s swankiest restaurants to take care of her brother and mother after her father’s death, but she’s not giving up on her dream. Nope. She’s going to turn her father’s debt-ridden, greasy spoon bar and restaurant into a destination gastropub that will bring life back to her small, struggling town.

Laurel faces resistance on all sides, but it’s running into her first love, reformed bad boy Jonah Gardiner, that really throws her off her stride. Worse, he’s more tempting than ever. Spurred on by Laurel’s rejection a decade ago, Jonah cleaned up his act and became an academic and psychologist, who helps everyone understand their feelings except himself.

He can think of a million reasons why he and Laurel need to stay at arms’ length, but when she shares her new recipes with him, it seems like foreplay. And that’s just the beginning… Can he and Laurel seize a second chance or will she destroy the peace he’s worked so hard for?

Titles in The Van Allen Brothers series include – Forgive MeForget Me
