Carlson does the best he can to raise his four-year-old daughter on his

everything he wants in a woman, including her ginger-red hair. He finds
it hard to keep her out of his arms—especially since she doesn’t mind
being in his embrace. But from his experience with women lately, he’s
learned that some don’t want a ready-made family. This one seems
different, and he’s falling hard. But, there’s his little blue-eyed
girl, and he’ll protect Destiny’s heart with everything within him.
Until he knows for sure…

home to the small town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on
her mind. When she is hired by a local rancher to help with his ranching
magazine, she finds herself profoundly attracted to him, and the
feeling is mutual. The thing is, her sexy boss comes as a package deal,
and his little girl is immediately drawn to her. It’s not just about two
hearts taking a chance now—or two people falling in love… Nora has to
be sure of what she wants before she takes on the cowboy and his child.
