Book One: JUST LOVING GERALD.
That damned man. This is not good.
She isn’t ready for her late husband’s best friend now.
Widowed Rhea Masterson is finally finding her footing again after losing her husband so suddenly three years ago. Life is good—her sons have all married and are making her the grandchildren she adores. She is happy now.
Until he came back home, anyway.
Retired general-turned-diplomat Gerald Talley is moving his overly rigid hiney in right next door. The man is militant, bossy, arrogant, clueless and just a real pain in the neck.
Seeing him brings the memories of the only man she would ever love. Gerald and her husband had been almost inseparable for decades. And it hurts to remember…
He is used to making things happen. Fixing things that are broken.
That isn’t happening now.
He’s failing where it matters most.
His daughter had suffered a horrible trauma two months earlier—but Marin needs more help than Gerald is equipped to give. He is not used to failure—and he’s not about to fail his daughter ever again.
There’s only one woman he can turn to.
Rhea. As maddening as she’s always been, he needs her now. More than ever.
Rhea’s the one person who can reach his daughter in her time of greatest need, and neither Gerald nor Rhea are ready to let Marin keep breaking the way she is. Now these two need to team up to fix this… Before Marin slips further away.
Along the way, they realize the truth:
Maybe… life isn’t over when you lose the one you love.
Maybe you can fall in love again—with the friend you’ve never realized you’ve had right next to you all along.

Book Two: FOREVER HOLDING PHIL
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO START OVER.
When her late husband’s family starts harassing her and almost abducts her two-year-old, trauma counselor Glenna Carnes knows she has only one real choice.
It is time to leave Finley Creek behind—and start a new life elsewhere. Glenna makes the difficult decision to ask for help getting out of Finley Creek for good. Her friends have one place in mind where they know Glenna and her three little girls can build the kind of life Glenna has always dreamed about for her children.
When her friend Robin reveals that’s her own hometown, Glenna says yes to life in a small town.
She just had to find a job there first.
And…a place to live. Fast.
HE’S DOING A FAVOR FOR A FRIEND, THAT’S ALL.
When Masterson County rancher Phil Tyler discovers his late wife’s sister Robin living in Finley Creek, he’s thrilled to finally know what happened to the young girl he’d last seen twenty years ago. Robin is family, and there is nothing a Tyler won’t do for family.
Now Robin needs a favor. Her best friend is in trouble. And that best friend is standing there, with a plea for help in her big green eyes.
Hiring Glenna as his housekeeper seems like the perfect solution for both of them.
Phil has been planning to hire a housekeeper anyway. Now he has. Things would work out just fine.
HE’S A TYLER. TYLERS HELP OTHERS WHEN THEY CAN.
Except…having the beautiful single mother just down the hall has this rancher getting hot for his housekeeper in a way the widower never expected to burn again.
GLENNA HADN’T COME TO MASTERSON LOOKING FOR ROMANCE WITH HER NEW BOSS—BUT SHE’S FOUND IT.
Romance—well, Glenna wasn’t exactly good at it. Nor was she good at sudden change. Neither were their children.
Between them, she and Phil have eleven kids—and not all of them were happy with Glenna’s presence on the Tyler Ranch.
That complicates things—for both of them.
HE HAS A CHOICE TO MAKE.
Phil knows his son Phoenix is still healing from his mother’s death—but Phil can’t spend the rest of his life alone, or let the grown man Phoenix is now dictate Phil’s choices.
Now Phil and his son are at a stalemate. Phil’s not going to budge an inch.
Glenna…makes him feel like he’s actually living again. Phil never expected to feel that way again after burying his wife.
He isn’t about to let Phoenix ruin that—or let his son chase Glenna and her girls away, just when they need him the most.
But he’s not ready to give up on his son, either.
It will take all of Glenna’s skills and compassion to help bridge the gap between father and son.
She’d just have to safeguard her own heart in the meantime…
Because when Phil’s arms go around her, everything feels right—for the first time in a long, long time.
