Wade Dalton was having a very bad day.

His five-year-old had accidentally set the kitchen on fire. His daughter was surly, as usual. The baby hadn't been fed yet. And his mother—aka "The Childminder"--had eloped...with a scam artist. Could it get any worse?

This has enjoyable characters and the happy ending you are guaranteed when you read a Harlequin romance. Wade Dalton's children play a major part in here and give it a nice touch. A lovely romance for anyone who loves contemporaries.

Cuando pensaba que nada podría irle peor… apareció ella.

Pues que apareciera la bellísima hija del artista ofreciéndose a cuidar a los niños hasta que volvieran los recién casados. ¿Podía confiar en ella y dejarla vi

I’ve read, and for the most part loved, RaeAnne Thayne’s other series Hope’s Crossing and Haven Point. I decided it was time to go back and read some of her older stuff. I’m happy I did. Even as this story played out pretty much as expected, it was still a joy to read.

Wade is a man’s man and seems to have an old-fashioned view on gender roles, although he never outright says as much. It doesn’t seem as though he thinks the traditional female roles (cooking, child rearing, etc.) are beneath him;

Cold Creek #1

It's story about Wade, a widower with 3 children who had to face reality: his mother ran away with a stranger revealed to be Caroline's father. Caroline came to Cold Creek in order to find his father who ran way with her client, Wade's mom.

When Wade struggled with his current condition: without his mom to handle his children like she used to be and lot of works in the family ranch. Caroline offered him some help after his children made some scene that need an extra attention. Althou

Falling in love with a family, not just the man.

A little too predictable, for my taste, but a pleasant romance. Her father was a grifter and she travels to the ranch to prevent him from hurting one of her clients and the client's family. As she starts to care for her client's son and his 3 children, she finds herself caring for the entire family more than she expected.

Light the Stars is what reading for pleasure should be. It's an enjoyable story with likable characters and has a happy ending. It was pretty well done too. The kids have realistic traits, there's some drama, and I liked the way Wade redeemed himself after Caroline packed up and left on her crutches. Reading this has prompted me to look for more 'feel good' books.

Enjoyed the story. Love the characters, especially the kids. I’m a sucker for cowboy love stories!

I’ve been interested in reading RaeAnne Thayne for awhile now. Glad I did... she didn’t disappoint.

Caroline and Wades story starts out of their parents running off to get married. Caroline helps care for his children and falls in love with him and his children. Is a wonderful love story on a ranch. Definitely will fall in love with them as you read the story.

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.
