Her worst enemy…
Could bring her heart home
Heather Stanhope wants to despise the man who now owns the ranch her family lost. But Matt Burton is raising his late sister’s adorable twins, loves horses, and is known for his loyalty and honesty. Sneaking into Adelaide Creek for her friend’s wedding, Heather hopes to avoid Matt, but fate and family have them crossing paths. Heather knows falling for Matt means risking her heart, but it’s a risk she can’t resist.
Virginia’s books feature characters who could be your neighbors and friends. They come in all ages and struggle with everyday life issues in small-town environments that almost always include water—oceans, lakes, or rivers. The mother of two grown children, you’ll find Virginia with her nose a book, walking on trails or her neighborhood street, or she may be packing her bag to take off for her next adventure. And she’s always working on another story about hope, healing, and second chances.

Heather’s eyes sparkled as she turned to Lucy. “Oh, wait till you see our dresses at the wedding.” She raised her eyebrows and gave Lucy an intimate smile. “They are sooo pretty. I can’t wait to wear mine.”
Lucy giggled the way she did when Matt used his whole face to exaggerate a point. Seeing Lucy happily talking to Heather played havoc with his feelings. He could almost feel his heart growing and taking up more space in his chest.
Dinner talk went from the wedding plans to the excitement about Charlie and Bethany’s new house in town.
After they said good-night on the sidewalk, Matt settled the two sleepy kids in the car and enjoyed the silence. The only glitch in the evening had come in the middle of dinner when Heather’s phone buzzed and her face brightened when she checked the screen and quickly responded. Maybe her smile had faded a little when she’d typed her response, but it could be she had business to attend to.
Wishful thinking. It was likely a text from her boyfriend. Matt tried to convince himself he had no reason to care one way or the other. She was here in Wyoming, and a boyfriend back home didn’t mean Matt couldn’t casually enjoy her company. Still, he envied the guy who could make her face light up like sunshine.
