Zach Turner knows this woman means trouble: Maybe to his town. Possibly to his friends. Definitely to his heart. Something about this simmering Southern beauty does crazy things to his committed bachelor status, taunting him with possibilities far beyond his dedication to his sometimes dangerous job. So when Savannah’s dark past follows her to town, wreaking havoc with both their lives, Zach will fight for all he’s worth—for a love he can’t afford to lose.

Sweeping passions, family drama, and searing scandal play out at the magnificent Silver Creek Ranch as the heirs to a powerful dynasty seize their legacy of love.
Oldest son Ward Knowles feels the sprawling California ranch in his blood. And now that the family business has expanded to include a popular resort, he’s working harder than ever. Silver Creek is his legacy and his life, which is fine for the ruggedly sexy ladies’ man and committed bachelor. Love and trust don’t come easily for Ward since he lost his heart to a gold digger—until he meets a shy, unpretentious beauty whose sweet grace is about to turn his jaded heart into a hungry one.
Tess Casari has found sanctuary at Silver Creek, working as an assistant to Ward’s mother, Adele. Grateful for her busy new life running the ranch’s spa and resort, Tess can escape the heartbreak, humiliation, and secret shame of her failed marriage. The last thing she needs is temptation—especially from a man who reminds her so much of the husband who shattered her faith in love. But passion and destiny are about to change the rules for two people who have stopped believing in the healing power of love.

Author Ruthie Knox on Balancing Independence and Dependence in Romance
March 19, 2013
One of the most beloved archetypes in romance is the “Protector” hero. He’s big, he’s bad, he’s strong, and he wants to save the heroine from the bad guys. Or her ex-husband. Or her own terrible judgment. Sometimes all three!
Just when things have really gone to hell in a handbasket, the Protector shows up with his muscles and his hotness and his don’t-give-a-damn attitude toward inconvenient aspects of life like “rules” and “inappropriate use of force” and “pajamas,” and he just kind of storms the castle and fixes everything.
Yeah. Um, this is not that book.

Something to wet your whistle & bring in the New Year, Elise Sax . . .
Certain to appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich, Jennifer Crusie, and Katie MacAlister, Elise Sax’s hilarious series debut introduces matchmaker-in-training Gladie Burger, who stumbles into a dangerous quagmire of murder and red-hot romance.
Three months has been Gladie Burger’s limit when it comes to staying in one place. That’s why Gladie is more than a little skeptical when her eccentric Grandma Zelda recruits her to the family’s matchmaking business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. What’s more, Gladie is also highly unqualified, having a terrible track record with romance. Still, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has “the gift.” But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy.
When Zelda’s neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family’s drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor’s death was murder. It’s not too long before she’s in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she’s unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?

Guest Post: De-Stressing in Autumn by Elisabeth Barrett + Giveaway!
Things have been crazy for me lately. Work, writing, kids, school projects, my own projects, birthdays, anniversaries…it’s been a little nuts at the Barrett household over the past couple of months. Now, this isn’t a complaint. I’m grateful for so many things (like the successful release of Blaze of Winter and my wedding anniversary, of course—Mr. B, are you reading this?), but my Google calendar (color-coded for each family member, natch) looks like a patchwork quilt, I’ve started to put little post-it notes up everywhere so I remember what I’m supposed to do when, and there have been times when I’m not sure whether I’m coming or going. I haven’t forgotten any of the kids…yet…but there are plenty of other things I have forgotten (like the field trip forms—sorry!).
What’s more, it’s not just me. I feel like everyone has been feeling this way lately, and it’s not even holiday season yet. When my friends and I get together, we mostly compare our crazy calendars, talk about our insane schedules and lament how busy we all are. Several friends have confided that they just want to “get away from it all.” And here’s the kicker: It doesn’t seem to matter whether or not kids are in the picture.
I love autumn (hello, Deep Autumn Heat, anyone) and want to enjoy the season, so what’s a gal to do? Read more
