When Cassidy McCullough gets off the bus in Busted Spur, Arizona, it's with a certain amount of trepidation. After living for years in Seattle, coming home to the slow pace and rural beauty of her hometown is a bit of a shock to the system. But not as big a shock, it turns out, as it is to see G.W. Benton again, and realizing her attraction to him hasn't gone anywhere while she's been gone. This is terribly inconvenient...after all, Cassidy's made the long trip home under the guise of needing advice on her big-city wedding plans, but in reality hoping her best friend can calm her doubts about her fiancé---definitelynotto resurrect the lifelong crush on the cowboy she's tried hard to forget. But something about the sunlight, the sweetness of the air and being back amongst the ones she loves most has Cassidy seeing more clearly than she has in a long time, and wondering if it's time she stopped denying the truth in her heart.
The daughter of a town marshal, Linda Lael Miller is a #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of more than 100 historical and contemporary novels, most of which reflect her love of the West. Raised in Northport, Washington, Linda pursued her wanderlust, living in London and Arizona and traveling the world before returning to the state of her birth to settle down on a horse property outside Spokane. Linda traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she sold Fletcher's Woman in 1983 to Pocket Books. Since then, Linda has successfully published historicals, contemporaries, paranormals, mysteries and thrillers before coming home, in a literal sense, and concentrating on novels with a Western flavor. For her devotion to her craft, the Romance Writers of America awarded her their prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Hallmark Movie Channel is developing a series based on Linda's Big Sky Country novels. Her latest book, Forever a Hero, a March 21, 2017 HQN Books release, is the third in her Carsons of Mustang Creek series. Her first mainstream Civil War novel will be published in May 2018. Dedicated to helping others, "The First Lady of the West" personally financed fifteen years of her Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women, which she awarded to women 25 years and older who were seeking to improve their lot in life through education. She anticipates that her next charitable endeavors will benefit four-legged critters.
