Four-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock has never met a romance sub-genre she didn’t like. The author of over eighty books enjoys writing a wide range of stories, most recently focusing on sexy contemporaries and small town family sagas. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook perfectly–love is worth fighting for. A frequent speaker at regional and national writing conferences she enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her fiction writing skills to her intensive study with friend and fellow author Catherine Mann. When she’s not writing, Joanne enjoys travel, especially to see her favorite sports teams play with her former sports editor husband and three athletic-minded sons.


After the passing of her beloved grandmother Fleur has returned to Catamount to settle her estate with her personal and professional life is in disarray. She didn’t plan on staying as she wants to keep as much distance between her and Drake as he was responsible for her leaving town five years earlier, but fate had other ideas.

Drake wants to purchase the ranch that Fleur’s grandmother owned but he also knows that he is probably the last person she wants to sell it to because of the past. It is only a matter of time before the sparks of antagonism turn into sparks of a different kind, but will the past be the one thing they can’t overcome?

The characters draw you in and have you invested in their happy ever after and leave you wanting the next story in this series.
