Zadie Larkford, recently graduated from an Eastern women’s college, lives a quiet life in her hometown of Franklin, Virginia. Content to spend her days painting by the river and watching her friends marry, she is shocked to learn that her father has promised her hand in marriage to a complete stranger. Ultimately unable to disobey, she leaves her childhood home to travel – unaccompanied – to Creed’s Crossing, Wyoming to meet her betrothed.
Raised in a seafaring community in North Carolina, Duncan Lorde made the decision to leave his father’s prosperous fishing venture to make a life for himself in the west. Determined to succeed in the treacherous and unpredictable pursuit of cattle ranching, he has land, a small cabin, and a herd. All he needs now is a wife–a good woman who will cook, clean, and provide him with strong sons to help on the ranch. When Zadie arrives in Creed’s Crossing, the young daughter of his father’s old friend is far more independent and strong-willed than he expected.
The young would-be-couple has barely begun to forge a bond when the forces of man and nature collide, impeding Duncan and Zadie as they struggle to fulfill…
A Rancher’s Request
I’ve known a lot of women and dated plenty, but I never dreamed I’d wind up with someone who wasn’t Deaf. I saw Savannah in the restaurant one night and she smiled. The day I caught up to her on campus, I was excited. Then in less than a minute, my hopes crumbled. When I told her I was Deaf, her expression changed. I thought she’d walk away from me. She didn’t. That’s when I fell in love with her. Men don’t like admitting to being struck by cupid’s arrows. It doesn’t sound macho, but I was hit hard. I knew I’d marry her.
Being a Deaf man in a hearing world and asking Savannah to be a permanent part of my life was more than a little intimidating. Convincing her to step into my world gave me one more problem to overcome as I pursued a career where most people considered hearing a prerequisite.
I’m no longer that little boy who wasn’t invited to the birthday party because I was different. I’m Deaf. I’m proud of who I am. It’s not an excuse. It’s a reminder to be better, to try harder, and to find my own success. This is my story of perseverance and the pursuit of the near impossible.
Three wonderfully wintry tales of true love!
A Cowboy’s Holiday
With no plans for the holidays, Hannah joins her friend Jeremy for Christmas at his family’s ranch. More than snow is falling as two friends discover romance between the snowflakes.
Christmas at Mariner’s Cove
It was just a little fib. Celine Colburn wasn’t expecting Prince Charming because that was the stuff of fairy tales. But when she met Frank Cresson, she found herself instantly drawn to him. Just as they were getting to know each other, she becomes a witness to a horrendous motorcycle accident that leaves him unconscious. And lies have a way of growing.
The Charity Auction
Elke prepares herself for a disappointing night after getting conned into being part of a holiday fundraiser until Jeremy’s bid proves to her that good girls sometimes do finish first.
Brad Shoemaker was blindsided when he discovered that love could be silent, and Kathryn “Ryn” Demary is mute. But when Mayor Bruno Giovanni is forced into early retirement, he chooses Brad to run in his place. Ryn is determined to campaign at Brad’s side, but instead of being an asset, she just might be his biggest liability. Ryn finds herself campaigning not just for Brad to become mayor but also for his love. Politics can get dirty and Ryn’s caught in the middle.
Matilda “Matt” Berwyn, forced to live disguised as a boy in a mining town, longs to escape and blossom into the female she's always wanted to be. But her desire to leave Homestead Canyon escalates when she realizes she's being stalked.
