Overview: It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.
“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”
However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a creative bone in her body. In school, math and science were her best subjects, and when it came time to pick a major in college, she chose business.

…is a baby. A baby of her own. At thirty, she longs to break away from the constraints of her life. Longs to reach out for her heart’s desire. She’d prefer marriage as well, but there’s no man in Dundee, Idaho, she’s interested in marrying.
Then one winter night she and her best friend, Rebecca, go to Boise with the intent of finding a man for Delaney. She meets a handsome stranger named Conner, a man who might be able to provide her with the solution she needs…and the baby she wants!

A Family of her Own: Pregnant . . .and alone?
When Katie Rogers returns to Dundee, Idaho, it’s not because she wants to. It’s because she’s disillusioned, broke — and pregnant. She was going to make something of her life in the big city. Instead, she’s paying a high price for trusting the wrong man.
Booker Robinson is the man she didn’t trust, the man she’d left behind in Dundee . . .and the first person she sees when she comes back. But despite Booker’s notorious past, he now has a successful business and a home of his own.
He’s also spent two years getting over Katie. She’s the last person he wants to see. But when her parents refuse to take her in, she doesn’t have anywhere else to go, and Booker soon finds himself with a roommate — one who needs a father for her baby . . .
Katie’s vowed she’ll never trust the wrong man again. But sometimes a man isn’t everything he seems. And sometimes he’s more…
A Home of Her Own: When Lucky Caldwell was ten, her mother, Red–the best-known hooker in Dundee, Idaho–married Morris Caldwell, a wealthy and much older man. It didn’t last, of course, but Morris’s kindness was the highlight of Lucky’s life.
Mike Hill, Morris’s grandson, doesn’t feel too well-disposed toward Red or her kids. He believes they alienated Morris from his family. Even Morris’s Victorian mansion, on the property next to the Hill ranch, wasn’t inherited by one of his grandchildren. Instead the house went to Lucky, who left it sitting empty for years.
Now that Red and Morris are both dead, Lucky has finally come back to Dundee. She plans to restore the derelict place–and to look for her real father, who has to be one of three men named in her mother’s diary.
That means Mike has a new neighbor.
One he doesn’t want to like…
Stranger in Town: The car accident was Hannah Price’s fault–a few seconds of inattention that changed Gabe Holbrook’s life forever, destroying everything he’d been or ever wanted to be. He was a man who’d had it all. Intelligent, handsome, talented, rich, he’d been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Now he’s come home to Dundee, the small town where he was raised, but he’s a stranger to the people who once knew him. Folks think he’s bitter and withdrawn; he knows he’s just focused on recovering. But thanks to Hannah Price, there are some things that can’t be fixed.
Hannah has been struggling to recover from that fateful night, too. Unlike Gabe, she sustained only minor injuries. But she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to forgive herself for making a mistake with such far-reaching consequences. Especially when Gabe becomes her older son’s football coach, and she begins to fall in love with the man she nearly destroyed…

She’s thrilled when she lands a job at Dundee High teaching history–until Isaac Russell, the man who triggered the unraveling of her marriage, accepts a temporary position teaching science. Then she’s tempted to quit. Reenie doesn’t care if the whole town admires Isaac…and she won’t admit that, secretly, she admires him, too. She doesn’t want to see him or his sister in "her" town.
But a friendship with the most unlikely woman leads to a relationship with the most unlikely man….

Dakota isn’t Tyson’s kind of woman. But the more he sees of her–and the more he sees of his son–the harder he wants to hang on.
