...family, community and the journey home...
All Benjamin Quincy wants is to make a stable home for his ten year old daughter in the town he grew up in and left in bitter disappointment. Young and hot headed, he made a mistake. Eleven years later, he’s a divorced, single dad with a troubled child, and a lot to make up for.
Sydney Marshall has finally snagged the perfect job at a coveted travel magazine in New York. Does she care that her ex has returned to the tiny town of Rosewood with a precious daughter who’s not hers? Does it matter that every time he comes near, her heat flutters madly like in the old days? No! Her bags are packed; plane tickets are stashed in her carry on bag; the adventure of a lifetime is about to begin.
There’s only one problem. Life and Rosewood have a penchant for interfering in the best laid plans.
Ten years before Madrid, Jane Donovan is a kid growing up in an orphanage and flirting with the wrong side of the law. Looking for the family that has eluded her, she has a choice to make. Live her mother's doomed life, or get off the streets. Finding the courage to reach for her dreams isn't easy, but in the end, will she take the road that will give her everything she's always wanted?
There’s no place like home, and to Gunnery Sergeant Jane Donovan, home is the US Marine Corps. But, she’s made a mistake. A tragic mistake that cost an orphaned kid from the poorest part of Madrid his life. Because of a little insubordination and disorderly conduct on her part, she’s about to lose the one thing she values most. The family and good life she’s forged in the Corps. Now she has one option. Put her future in the hands of Dr. Chase Russell, or become a civilian. The choice is hers.
Chase Russell has royally screwed up. Busy chasing a lucrative book deal that would legitimize his theories about treating war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and let’s face it, give him a certain amount of fame too, he missed a client’s cry for help and subsequent admission to the hospital for a failed drug overdose. That the client was his brother makes his arrogance more reprehensible. In the aftermath, he leaves his lucrative practice in Chicago to start over on a lovely, neglected Central Oregon ranch, looking for the peace and sanctuary he craves, but hardly deserves.
When the Marine arrives, nursing a cranky hip and an even crankier disposition, he wants nothing to do with her, but the fun is just beginning. Between helping two runaway kids, and taking the stubborn Marine through play therapy, what’s an ex-counselor to do, but make sure this hero finds her way home.
Leaving behind his military life to take care of his orphaned nephew, celebrating Christmas is the last thing on David Randall's mind. Assigned a temporary “secretary”, a mis-fit for the job if there ever was one, Charlee Banks soon realizes there's one Christmas proposal she'd better get right.
