For readers of Linda Lael Miller and Susan Mallery comes NewYork Times bestselling author Joan Johnston’s sizzling contemporary Western romance, where power, money, and rivalries rule—and love is the best revenge. WHILE HE SEEKS A HAVEN, SHE SEARCHES FOR A PLACE TO CALL HOME
After a tragic accident leaves Delta sergeant Connor Flynn a widower, he faces the toughest fight of his life: battling his in-laws for custody of his two young children. To win he’ll need a make-believe bride to take care of the kids while he runs his Wyoming ranch. Who better than a woman he already knows and likes—his late wife’s best friend?
Ruthlessly forced from her home by her powerful father, King Grayhawk, Eve needs somewhere to go . . . and so does the herd of wild mustangs she’s rescued. Connor’s offer sounds like the answer to a prayer. But Eve has a guilty secret she’s guarded for years: She’s always been in love with Connor.
Now forced to live under the same roof as her heart’s desire, Eve must hide the love that has never died, while Connor vows to resist his growing need for a woman who was forbidden fruit during his marriage. Can two lonely people set adrift by fate and haunted by guilt find redemption in the healing embrace of love?

As part of the Bitter Creek series this arc centers on King Greyhawks spoiled daughters nicknamed King's Brats and Angus Flynn's boys nicknamed those Wild Flynn Boys and their family feud that started years ago. It is another great book by Joan Johnston, like the three first books in the Bitter Creek series the families are feuding, unlike the original feud it hasn't gone on as long as the Blackthorne and Creed feud did but the hate runs deep between King and Angus.

Another author who has been around for a while but took me until this book to fall in love with. Joan Johnston captivates with Sinful, book 13 of her Bitter Creek Series (seriously whee hae I been). And in some ways it's the Hatfields and the McCoy's revisited.. only these families are actually way more dysfunctional..
Eve Grayhawk was one of the princesses of the county, her father "King" has pretty much ruled his corner of the world. Well except for his ridiculous feud with Angus Flynn and it's bled over into their children's lives. Even to the point that a teenage crush was denied... Now Eve's life has changed and the ranch she always called home has been given to a half brother. Sure her father's still alive but she needs to find somewhere else to keep her beloved rescue horses and the only place to turn? Connor Flynn that boy she could never have is a widower now and sparks are still...
