She's been a stranger to love . . .  Could he be the stranger to change that?
For his teenage son, Wyoming cowboy Dax will do anything -- even become a role model at dating. Enter the perfect stranger: an Easterner, visiting for just two weeks.

But soon Hannah, no longer a stranger, becomes the greatest danger of all to this rancher's stubbornly solitary heart.

Emotion and romantic comedy blend in the tale of a single father whose desire to help his son turns his heart inside out in Book 3 of the contemporary western romance Bardville, Wyoming series by USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn.

Three strangers arrive in rugged Bardville, Wyoming. They're never the same … And neither are the people of Bardville.
