This is the first book about the Harte siblings and the book starts with two nine-year old plotting how to become sisters and their parents married.

Ellie moved to town three-months ago, wanting to be her own boss finally by buying the vet practice in town along with her daughter Dylan but things have not been going that well since the traditional ranchers don't like that she sometimes even practices acupuncture. She is called to school, to be asked to chair the Valentine's Day committee to raise
Very good "Parent Trap" type of story. Dylan Webster and Lucy Harte are fourth grade girls who have become best friends since Dylan and her mother moved to town. They are such good friends that they've decided that the next step is to become sisters. But to do that, they're going to have to find a way to get their parents together. So without their knowledge, Ellie and Matt get volunteered to co-chair the annual Valentine's Day school fundraiser.

To say they aren't pleased is an understatement. M

I enjoyed this book as I do all her work. I love the cowboy romances. She has a great way of writing the romantic parts where you, as a reader, feel them down to the core. That first kiss between the main characters..Whew..I felt it myself. Ellie, the vet in town, that comes from California with her new ways of treating animals is shunned by many of the ranchers. Matt tries to win her over, but Ellie keeps pushing him away. It was refreshing to see the female character having the relationship "i ...more

In Thayne’s romance novel, rancher and single father Matt Harte has been roped into helping with the planning of the annual Valentine’s Day dance. And just his luck, his partner in this venture is none other than recent transplant Ellie Webster, a woman for the life of him he couldn’t keep his eyes off of.

Ellie is well aware that Matt doesn’t want her in his town or around him, but she plugs away with the planning because of her daughter. Much to her dismay, she must also resist the sparks that

Can anyone get past their past

An enjoyable story of 2 little girls and their single parents each of whom believe that love means being dependent on a person who will hurt you.

This is a story about being hurt and in pain, from others and trying to rely only on yourself rather than allowing yourself to fall in love and become a family

I'm not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.
