On his thirty-sixth birthday, Wade Dalton's mother ran away. This might not be such a crisis, except his mother has helped Wade raise his three young children since the death of his wife two years ago. And with Marjorie's typical flightiness, she picked the worst possible time to pull one of her stunts and disappear with a man she met on the Internet, just when life on his Idaho ranch is at its most chaotic.
Wade knows just the person to blame for his current predicament: Caroline Montgomery, the California life coach who has been working with his mother for the last few months, filling her head with all kinds of nonsense about following her passion and reaching for her dreams. When Caroline shows up at the Cold Creek Ranch looking for her missing father -- who turns out to be his mother's new beau -- Wade is immediately suspicious. Any woman who can so quickly charm everyone on his ranch -- including him -- must be up to no good. [from author's web site]
