Eight years after fleeing Christmas Falls because of a high school prank gone wrong, Ashley Brooks receives a mysterious letter from her mentor asking her to come home. She arrives to face all she left behind—her family, her friends, and the rich boy she’d loved who would never date the girl from the wrong side of town.
Brent Donnelly, high school jock, brainiac, and dutiful son did everything right until the day Ashley returns to Christmas Falls. With one look at the girl who got away he questions all his life choices, including following in his father’s footsteps in the family business.
Faced with a potentially devastating decline of tourism in their hometown, Brent and Ashley must work together to save the magic of their town, but when Ashley discovers he still has feelings for her best friend she must finally face the real reason she left Christmas Falls—to try to heal her broken heart.
If there was such a thing as an urban legend in Cotton Creek it was Grady Judd. He’d broken the heart of every woman he’d ever kissed and he’d kissed a plenty. Many tried to rope him, tie him down and drag him to the altar, but Grady wasn’t the marrying kind. In fact, no one was quite sure what kind of man Grady was. He showed up now and again, tended to his ranch and then would disappear just as fast and never utter a word as to where he’d been when he came home again.
He was a sexy temptation, rolled up in a fine male package, and was all too willing to deliver a night of pleasure. He was also completely unwilling to let anyone inside his impenetrable wall. It was all fun and games or nothing at all.
Until he showed back up in Cotton Creek this time to discover that he’s not the only heartbreaker in town, which leads to a whole new game and an entirely new question. Could Grady Judd finally have met his match?
A man hiding from his past and a woman running from hers.
Two people from different worlds who know one another only from what they have shared with one another in Facebook messages. They’ve never heard the other’s voice, or seen a photo.
Analise Becke writes romance with western heroes, men she has dreamed up by combining the looks of her favorite western actor with the qualities she discovers in her online chats with the Texas rancher, Riley Morgan. She’s cooked up more than a few fantasies about Riley over the last year, but knows them for what they are — fantasies of a lonely woman whose marriage is falling apart.
Riley looks forward to the online chats more than he is willing to admit but has never considered asking what she looks like. She’s just an online friend. Yeah, they have a connection, but certainly not enough to even consider that a face-to-face meeting will spark anything other than a solidification of their friendship.
Riley Morgan and Analise Becke are in for a big surprise – actually a series of surprises. Their lives are about to be turned upside down as passion and danger come to Cotton Creek, Texas.
And they say nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek.
“I stared out at the majestic vista before me and thought, if God lived anywhere, it’d be here. And then I looked down at the dead body at my feet.”

Being the only cop in town who can investigate the growing number of crimes puts Maggie in an even deeper quagmire.
