"How do you choose between your heart and your responsibilities?

Merry Hurst, a fierce widow and single mom, is determined to give her young son the life he deserves—including a male role model who will stick around for the long haul. She can't afford to fall for a man who isn't planning to stay in Huckleberry Falls, so she might as well stop dreaming about Carlisle Wyndham. If only it were that easy!

Carlisle Wyndham is determined to develop the avalanche-proof transceiver that could have saved his wife's life. He's glad his daughter has made a new friend, but they’re only staying in Huckleberry Falls long enough to complete the project. When he meets the young boy’s mother, Carlisle’s not prepared for how alive she makes him feel.

But he has pressing responsibilities pulling him back to England while Merry’s require her to stay. Do they dare risk getting involved only to say goodbye?"



By the time Carlisle returned with a bundle of hay, he wondered if he should have changed his clothes before coming. Had he known he’d be attending such an event, he’d never have worn his dress coat. The thought brought to mind one of his grandfather’s lectures on proper dress for families that were members of the peerage. What would the old man say if he could see Carlisle now? It made him chuckle.

“What are you laughing at?” Merry asked as she tied something around the crossbar for the tall scarecrow’s frame. “We want in on the joke.”

At first, Carlisle wasn’t going to tell her, but the three happy and expectant faces loosened his lips. He set down the pile of hay and extended his arms from his sides. Grace giggled.

“You can be the scarecrow, Papa!”
