Welcome to Heart Falls—a place for family, friends, and a second chance to fall in love.
A stand alone novel in a new trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.
Wealthy rancher Finn Marlette’s move to Heart Falls to fix what went wrong between him and Karen Coleman just got complicated. Suddenly he’s got five months to get his new dude ranch up and running, or lose the place to a hated rival.

New agenda: Show up on Karen’s porch, tell her they belong together, and offer her a job.

After a lifetime of following the rules and other’s dreams, Karen’s determined to find her own path. The last thing she needs is to get involved with Finn again—it was only a secret fling, and she still fell hard.

But the summer job he offers is tempting—it’s a chance to work with men who truly appreciate her ranching skills. Finn’s determined to tempt her into remembering all the delicious sexual appreciation between them as well.

Wild horses can’t keep them apart, but sabotage and too many secrets might…

  • It’s great to be back in the saddle again!

    By T.Friese
    Welcome back to Heart Falls. Karen and Finn’s story remind you that sometimes good things come to those who wait. And worth the wait it was! Vivian Arend knows how to mix up some personal baggage to overcome, family drama, sizzling sexy times, an adorable kitten, and sabotage to create a kick arse heartwarming story. I can’t wait for Zack and Julia’s story next. Received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
  • Second chances

    By Nicholell
    I’m a huge fan of second chance romances and Arend does it well. Years ago Finn meet Karen while helping on her families ranch for the summer. Romance ensued and even though they both knew it was temporary they developed feelings for each other but family issues got in the way. Finn has worked hard to build a life so he could come back for Karen and now they have their second chance but it doesn’t come easy. I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait for Zach’s story next. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    If you are into dirty talk definitely Finn is your guy. It’s going to be hard to wait for the next book but you get a juicy story with this book.
  • Second chance romance with a twist

    By charlligirl
    Wow, this was not the story I was expecting. I knew Karen's story would be good, but this was great. Second chance romance with a twist. I love Finn and Zach's mentor. Even from beyond, he is still pulling strings. And still challenging the men, both mentally and physically. And what a reward. For everyone. But this story left me wondering if Karen ever comes to terms with her father and her feelings. And how will they handle certain family members once they start having their own children. I think there is still more story to tell. I'm hopeful that we can get another story a few years down the road once they have started their family.
  • Lost Loves!

    By 12toot
    There’s not much better than a book about families and ranching. Even though we met Karen and Finn in previous books, it was nice to get to know them a bit better with their story. Karen has had a lot of expectations placed on her, whether it was by others or the ones that she placed on herself. It was nice to see her being able to shake those off and find out what she really wants in life. Finn always seemed to know what he wanted but unforseen family situations delayed and seemed impossible to meet. This was an easy read, which can be a welcome relief in dealing with daily life. Can’t wait for Julia’s story!
  • Perfect Quarantine Read

    By JFinCA
    This Story is rich with interesting side characters and challenges from the grave involving property and money. Finn is trying to rekindle his relationship with Karen and they face many obstacles including meddling sisters, problematic fathers, a feisty kitten, a broken leg, wild horses and a greedy evil man. But sweet love wins out; and family and friends always have your back.
  • Page turner

    Love the Whiskey Creek girls. Mystery’s answered, secrets brought to light and sexy cowboys what more can you ask from a book. This book was well worth the wait couldn’t put it down
  • Finding Joy

    By singneon
    Great series with family and friends connections that are all bond together with love, trust and respect. Finn & Karen's story provided the opportunity for their second chance and bridges the 5 year gap. Their story is heartwarming, suspenseful and steamy. Finn is very determined and has his work cut out for him getting a second chance with Karen but he is up for the romancing challenge. Karen is independent, a little stubborn, super smart and has her own agenda. Turns out these secret lovers are ready to reveal all...eventually. Invigorating read, love this series and looking forward to the next. I was provided a free copy without obligation and am voluntarily reviewing.
