Whether it is historical, western, or contemporary, it is always a romance that a reader will never forget when USA Today Bestselling Author, Jo Goodman writes a tale. She is one of those very few imaginative storyteller’s that can have readers at ‘hello.’

This new story offers readers not only romance, but a creative and emotional blend of family, love, friends, and the forces of fate can do to another. In this particular story, the main characters of Thea Wyndham and Mitchell Baker are told that they have become ‘joint’ guardians of their late friends’ three children. Not exactly an easy task, seeing as that these people are not married or dating each other - heck, they barely know each other - and what they do know of each other makes them want to run in the opposite direction and NOT take care of children as a ‘team.’

Mitch is one of these strong characters who will not take help from anyone. No matter what happens or appears in his life, he wants to find a way to take care of things all by himself, and Thea has a tendency to offer aid and financial assistance which makes him go absolutely nuts. Thea soon finds that she is completely and utterly frightened to take over the task of raising these children. Not only that, but she has to be friends and partners with Mitch, and both of them are already in relationships with other people who may just not understand why they would possibly take up this responsibility.

Readers will be able to share in the spectrum of human emotions - literally - with this incredibly funny, warm and caring tale. They will watch as two people who live in completely different worlds seem to find a point where they not only work well together, but they also WANT to work together for a very long time to come. The plot offers humor, drama, romance - absolutely everything a reader could ask for!
