Cat is a Calder through and through: proud, headstrong, intelligent, and extremely beautiful. When her fiancé is accidentally killed, she retreats to the family homestead to mourn, vowing never to give her heart to another man. But one reckless night with a handsome, gray-eyed stranger changes her life forever -- and gives her a son with striking gray eyes.

Cat decides to raise the child on her own, but the town treats her as an outcast when they learn she is an unwed mother. Cat is gossiped about meanly, and it takes all her pride to hold her head up and ignore what she knows is being said behind her back.

But Cat cannot ignore the new sheriff. It isn't his rugged good looks that cause her heart to skip a beat when he first arrives in town -- it's his striking gray eyes. It seems impossible, but the man she never thought she would see again is now a part of her life.

Cat finds herself torn between her promise to her first love and powerful, unexpected feelings for her child's father. Cat must decide: Will she take a chance on a new, true love?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dailey has written a tale as clearly branded with her imprimatur as the herd on the Triple C Ranch…By turns an old-fashioned western, complete with cattle rustling, and a thoroughly modern romance, this update on the Calder family shows Dailey gamely back on the horse and riding well.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Entertaining. Fans of the series will find it comforting to return to the Triple C Ranch in Montana to pick up the family saga, which Dailey has done well to keep alive.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “Dailey [has been called] ‘queen of the Western romance,’ and this book proves it.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Both complex characters and a compelling plot line—one infused with a suspense element that Dailey conveys as effortlessly as the essence of a Montana ranching community that will charm the reader throughout…Fans who fell in love with earlier Calder novels will be delighted with this latest chapter in the family chronicle.”

About the Author
Author Janet DaileyJanet Dailey's first book -- a Harlequin romance -- was published in 1976. In the twenty years since, she has written 89 more novels and become the third largest selling female author in the world, with 300 million copies of her books sold in 19 languages in 98 countries. Her most recent bestsellers, Masquerade, Rivals, and Heiress, have all sold more than one million copies each. She is known for her strong, decisive characters, her extraordinary ability to re-create a time and place, and her unerring courage to confront important, controversial issues, like alcoholism and sexual abuse, in her stories.

All of her novels are meticulously researched, an endeavor she shares with her husband, Bill Dailey. The couple met in 1963, when Janet worked as a secretary for the construction company Bill owned. The two travel extensively to scout story locations, and have visited all 50 states; these days, they are likely to fly, but miss the time when they drove cross country, a trailer attached to their car. Janet Dailey also reads voraciously about every aspect of any subject she writes about; as she remarks, "Accuracy is important in genre fiction; you have to get it right, zero in on the real details. That's the way to make writing come alive and not irritate the readers with carelessness."

When they are not traveling, the couple spend time at their home on the shore of Lake Taneycomo in Branson, Missouri. It is the part of the country Dailey loves best, partly because, she says, "The people around me are more interested in their problems and their lives, and that sort of keeps me in touch with reality. They think it's nice that I write, but they really couldn't care less."

Allison Janney has been featured on Broadway (Present Laughter), in films (Big Night and First Wives Club) and on television shows on all four networks.

About the Narrator

Judith Ivey was born in 1951 in El Paso, Texas. She was not quite yet a Tony Award–winner, but already a prolific Broadway and stage actress when she made her film debut appearance as Steve Martin’s love interest in Arthur Hiller’s The Lonely Guy. She then went on to star as Jennifer Jason Leigh’s older sister in the southern gothic thriller Sister, Sister. She came to star (despite her impressive resume) as what would be her better remembered role, Texan B. J. Poteet in the last season of Designing Women. Other notable characters she has played in film include Keanu Reeves’ mother in Devil’s Advocate, one of three intrepid psychics investigating a haunted house in Stephen King’s three-part miniseries Rose Red, and the recurring role of Debra Messing’s mother-in-law Eleanor Markus on Will & Grace.
