First in a new series from the New York Times bestselling author of the hugely popular Sweetheart Sisters novels! At heart, Elizabeth Palmer is a practical Jersey girl. And her life reflects that-until everything suddenly falls apart. In a bid to change her luck, the intrepid reporter accepts a job to write a story on a reclusive quarter horse breeder in Chatham Ridge, Georgia. To her surprise, she finds herself settling into the warm, inviting town-even joining the Southern Belle Book Club-and craving the company of the rancher she's there to interview… Hunter McCoy has good reason to keep his distance from the determined reporter. Tragedy has taught him to stick to things that don't require his heart. But he can't seem to resist the vulnerability he detects beneath Elizabeth's tough demeanor. But when Hunter is faced with the possibility of a terrible loss and shuts Elizabeth out, she will have to prove to Hunter that having somebody love you can heal all wounds… From the Paperback edition.
Shirley Jump is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Sweetheart Sisters novels, which include The Sweetheart Secret, The Sweetheart Rules (A USA Today “Must Read”), and The Sweetheart Bargain. She spends her days writing romance and women’s fiction to feed her shoe addiction and avoid cleaning the toilets. She cleverly finds writing time by feeding her kids junk food, allowing them to dress in the clothes they find on the floor, and encouraging the dogs to double as vacuum cleaners.
