The women of Bliss County have a pact--to find husbands. The right husbands.

One already has: Hadleigh Stevens, who married rancher Tripp Galloway a few months ago. Now Melody Nolan thinks it's her turn. Melody has recently found success as a jewelry designer, and her work is the focus of her life. She's not exactly unhappy, but she wants more. She's always been attracted to Spence Hogan, the local chief of police, but she's convinced that Spence, a notorious charmer, isn't what you'd call husband material.

Spence is a good cop who isn't scared of anything--except love. And he's done everything he can to preserve his reputation as a womanizer--a reputation that keeps marriage-minded women, including Melody, at bay. And yet...there's something about Melody he can't forget. Something his heart can't ignore.

Review quote

Linda Lael Miller creates vibrant characters and stories I defy you to forget.-#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

Miller has created unforgettable characters and woven a many-faceted yet coherent and lovingly told tale. -Booklist on McKettrick's Choice

Miller's name is synonymous with the finest in western romance.

-RT Book Reviews

Full of equal parts heart and heartache, Miller's newest western is sure to tug at the heartstrings from the first charming scene to the last.

-RT Book Reviews on Big Sky Summer

Miller's down-home, easy-to-read style keeps the plot moving, and she includes...likable characters, picturesque descriptions and some very sweet pets.

-Publishers Weekly on Big Sky Country

A delightful addition to Miller's Big Sky series. This author has a way with a phrase that is nigh-on poetic...this story [is] especially entertaining.

-RT Book Reviews on Big Sky Mountain

A passionate love too long denied drives the action in this multifaceted, emotionally rich reunion story that overflows with breathtaking sexual chemistry.

-Library Journal on McKettricks of Texas: Tate

Miller's prose is smart, and her tough Eastwoodian cowboy cuts a sharp, unexpectedly funny figure in a classroom full of rambunctious frontier kids.

-Publishers Weekly on The Man from Stone Creek

Miller's return to Parable is a charming story of love in its many forms. The hero's struggles are handled in an informed and heartwarming way, and it's easy to empathize with the heroine's desire to start an independent, new life in this sweetly entertaining and alluring tale.
-RT Book Reviews on Big Sky River

Miller's third Stone Creek novel gets as hot as the noontime desert. Miller's portrayal of Sarah as a strong, independent woman sets this novel apart from customary tales of the damsel in distress and the rescuing hero...Well-developed, personable characters and a handful of loose ends will leave readers anticipating future installments. --Publishers Weekly on The Rustler
