Dillon Sheenan refuses to be tamed… 

After three years running the family ranch, sexy thirty-year-old Dillon Sheenan has a one way plane ticket out of Montana. He’s eager to put small town life, with its emphasis on brides, babies, and families, behind him as he’s certainly not interested in being a dad, or even ready to settle down. 

Beautiful single mom, Paige Joffe, juggles a lot, between running Main Street Diner and coping with her money-pit of a Victorian on Bramble Lane. She doesn’t have time for anything but taking care of the loves of her life, Addison and Tyler, and working to pay down bills. But one date–and an incredibly hot kiss–with Dillon Sheenan wakes her up and makes her dream again. 

Until she finds out Dillon’s already bought his ticket out of town… 

Is Dillon about to break the heart of the only woman he’s ever loved?

  • Sweet Contemporary Romance!

    By Cpitcock
    Dillon Sheenan did what was right a few years ago and left his emerging company in order to go home to Montana and run his family's ranch while his father was ill. One of his brothers has stepped up to take over the ranch now, so Dillon is excited to be able to go back to Texas, where he intends to salvage what is left of his company. Paige Joffe is a woman he's greatly admired, and he is determined not to get attached to her right before he leaves. Aside from his move, he doesn't want to be a family man. As Dillon and Paige realize the other is just as strongly attracted, and as their feelings grow, they have to re-evaluate the direction of their lives. This was a very sweet story. I thought both Dillon and Paige were great, and her children added a great deal to the story. The storyline was interesting, and I enjoyed the way everything was resolved. I thought it was a great contemporary romance! Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
  • Couldn't put it down

    By kerryacroucier
    One that I could not put down. Dillon Sheenan came home Marietta to take care of his sick father and the family ranch, giving up his career and his company. Now, the company is begging him to come back and fix things, and the ranch is in good hands now that his brother is home. Dillon just needs to wrap things up and head back to Austin. He just couldn't help telling his long-time crush how he felt. Paige Joffe is a widow with two children. A California girl, she moved to Marietta to give her children a chance to know their Grandparents. She is struggling to be a good mom, run her diner, and keep their old Victorian from falling in on them. She isn't looking for a man or romance, especially not a younger guy like Dillon. Dillon never wanted to get married or have kids, and he never planned to get involved with a Mom, especially now that he is leaving town. Best laid plans never work, and as Dillon spends more time with Paige and her kids, the more he likes them. He just needs to figure out if he is in for the long haul. I love the Sheenan brothers. Each brings his own personality to the table and it takes a strong woman to tame them. Jane Porter has done a wonderful job writing two strong, flawed and believable characters. The story grabs you and pulls you in, and when you hit the end, you are still looking for more. I loved the return to Marietta and the visit with old friends and look forward, impatiently, to the next visit! *I received an advanced copy from the Publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
  • Loved it!!

    By SBart79
    This book will leave you smiling well after the book has ended. What's not to love the Sheenans and Marietta Montana. Dillon had returned to Marietta when his father's health was deteriorating three years ago, but now it is time to return to Austin Texas for his job. Paige, is a single mom and owner of the local diner. Dillon is not looking to get involved with a single mom, that is one thing he does not want is children. Things don't always turn out the way you have your life planned. Let you heart lead the way! I so loved these two characters. Paige was so strong, and did not like asking for help or depending on other people. Dillon has a bigger heart for family that he even knew. I highly recommend this story of Dillon and Paige. I received this book from netgalley for an honest review.

  • love is worth it

    By momof3boysj
    Sometimes, love is all about timing. Sometimes, timing gets in the way. In this story, Paige and Dillon must figure out if they can go the distance for love, ignore all the obstacles and excuses, and let love, and their hearts fulfill their destiny. It's a long road, and each must concede a little, but in the end, it's worth it. Love wins! A family is formed. And, that makes a fabulous romance! This is a fabulous and well-written story of a slow burning love, kindled with grit and determination, flaring into the love of a lifetime! I was provided a copy by the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion!
