"They must overcome tragic pasts to find the love that will heal their wounded hearts!"
Reeling from loss and heartbreak, Stella King is desperate to escape painful memories. The position of nanny on an isolated ranch in British Columbia’s rugged Chilcotin Plateau seems the answer to her prayers.
Cattle rancher, Dawson Wheeler, has worked hard to overcome grief and build a predictable world for his young daughter. The last thing he needs is the all-too-attractive Stella disrupting the smooth running of his ranch, especially now that disturbing incidents are happening on his property.
Defending his land against those who want to gut it will be a challenge, but the biggest threat of all may be to his heart.
READ AN EXCERPT
The back of his neck itched. "You're Stella King?" Of course she was. Who else would be waiting here at this time of night? Once again he glanced at the photograph clenched in his hand—gray curls, thick glasses, sixty years old. This was the Stella King he'd hired. The itching amped up to a full-out assault.
She stood and held out her hand. "Nice to meet you, Dawson."
He stumbled back a step, his worst fears confirmed. This gorgeous woman was the nanny he'd hired to look after Deirdre.
Her light blue wool sweater did nothing to hide the rounded mounds of her breasts. Her legs looked a mile long in the white denim, skin tight, designer jeans tucked into a pair of knee-high, high-heeled, black leather boots. Her perfume wafted on the evening breeze, a heady mix of spring flowers and something subtle but decidedly feminine.
He struggled to swallow, but his throat was parched, his tongue as dry as old leather against the roof of his mouth.
Silence stretched between them. An owl hooted from a nearby tree, crickets chirped in the tall grass lining the ditch, and still he didn't move as the ramifications of what he'd agreed to engulfed him.

FUN FACTS ABOUT AUTHOR C.B. CLARK!
Favorite ice cream: chocolate
Favorite type of music: Country and Western, especially old time country music. There’s something about a good old song by one of the greats like Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, or Waylon Jennings that soothes my soul, especially in these stressful times.
Celebrity crush: My first celebrity crush was William Shatner from the Star Trek television series. When I was a kid, I wrote him a fan letter and received an autographed photo from him (or maybe his assistant).
Favorite movie: I just watched The Longest Ride starring Scott Eastwood (a clone of his handsome father), Britt Robertson, and Alan Alda. The movie is based on a Nicholas Sparks’ novel and features a champion bull rider’s rocky romance with a fine arts student. The tears flowed, but I loved every minute of the movie.
Interesting hobbies: I love being out in the wilderness, and I’ve started following deer trails through the forest searching for deer sheds. It’s like looking for hen’s teeth, but exciting when I find an antler. My son’s dog loves to chew antlers.
Messy bun or neat/tidy hair: Tidy hair—often a pony tail.
High heels or Sneakers: Always sneakers.
Fantasy vacation: Canoeing the Thelon River in the Arctic. This remote river, more than 400 kilometers from any settlement, wends through the northern tundra, an area of stunning wilderness.
