A Cold Creek Secret
by RaeAnne Thayne

A woman looking to start fresh finds much more than she bargained for when she crashes into a tired soldier’s fence in New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne’s A Cold Creek Secret

Just back from a tour of duty, all Major Brant Western wants is a hot meal and a warm bed. What he doesn’t need is the stunning socialite in disguise who’s just shown up at his family’s Cold Creek ranch. Scandal trails Mimi Van Hoyt—aka “Maura”—everywhere she goes. But once Brant discovers her secret, how could he turn her away?

Being stranded in the middle of nowhere in a blizzard is not Mimi’s idea of a fun time in the Tetons. Then why is she starting to think this sexy soldier could be more than her shelter from the storm? And the more determined Brant is to protect her and her unborn child, the more she believes that this honorable, irresistible military man is the only man for her.

Originally published February 2010 in Silhouette Special Edition #2025 in mass market paperback and eBook and May 2017 as A Cold Creek Secret & Not Just a Cowboy in mass market paperback and eBook.

RaeAnne Thayne's Bio

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. Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged. After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist. Through it all --- through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor --- I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love. I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try --- their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 40 books later, I've come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the "that's-it!" feeling I get when a story is flowing. I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains. Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can't imagine my life any other way. I love to hear from readers.
