Linda Lael Miller
The only wide–open space Rance McKettrick wants to see in his future is his hometown in his rear view mirror. The down–to–earth ex–rancher is determined to make a fresh start with his two young daughters – and leave his heartbreaking loss and family's successful corporation far behind. He sure doesn't need Indian Rock's free–spirited new bookstore owner Echo Wells confusing his choices... and raising memories he'd rather forget. But her straightforward honesty and reluctance to trust is challenging everything Rance thought he knew about himself. And when their irresistible attraction puts their hearts on the line, Rance and Echo must come to grips with who they really are to find a once–in–a–lifetime happiness.
