about the book

He’s never known love…

Until a chance encounter.

Rodeo cowboy Lucky Harper is only making a short stop in idyllic Violet Ridge. So how did he go from being an outsider to pretty rancher Elizabeth Irwin’s wedding date—and her fake fiancé—in one night? For the first time, this lone cowboy is suddenly part of a real family. But even he’s not lucky enough to find family and love by accident…or is he?

From Harlequin Heartwarming: Wholesome stories of love, compassion and belonging.

“I insist you attend my wedding. It’s the least I can do. It won’t be any trouble adding an extra seat. Elizabeth’s not bringing anyone to the wedding. You can be my personal guest.”

Elizabeth blanched at her father’s observation, while her brother burst out laughing.

Lucky tugged at his T-shirt. It was getting harder by the second to find some graceful way out of staying. He didn’t belong at such a fancy event. “Elizabeth? I could really use your help.”

What was he doing, expecting someone he’d only known for a few hours to read his mind and come up with a convenient excuse for his departure?

“He can’t be your personal guest,” Elizabeth blurted out. Color flooded her cheeks.

Lucky let out the breath he didn’t realize he’d been holding. This wedding was an important family occasion. Thankfully, someone had seen sense. He was already counting the minutes until he was on the road.

“Because he’s already my plus-one.”
