Welcome to Heart Falls, where there's more at stake than the future of the Silver Stone ranch.

A standalone novel by New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.

With the ranch teetering on the brink of disaster, accepting an invitation to the gala of the year is a top business priority for Luke Stone. Having a significant other on his arm isn’t merely a good idea, it’s a necessity. Doesn't matter that he’s currently single—there’s a logical solution. Kelli is easy company, a vital part of ranch operations, and willing to sing Silver Stone’s praises all day long. She’ll be perfect.

Kelli James has kept a lot of secrets over the eight years since she boldly walked onto the ranch. Her biggest challenge, though, has been hiding her crush on the sexiest cowboy she’s ever laid eyes on. When Luke informs her they’re headed to the mountains for a week-long, work-related event, she’s not sure what to expect.

That he signed her up to play the part of the perfect rancher’s bride-to-be wasn’t it…

    I got so excited reading this book. It took by surprise the whole plot since I thought Dustin and Kelly might heat it off.... but i gotta day Luke and Kelli is indeed much better. Kelli has always been a mystery character and see it get the spotlight was very refreshing. I’m looking forward for the upcoming installment!!! You will love this story a lot.

    I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Ms. Arend has done it again. I couldn’t put it down. Finished it in 24 hours! Luke and Kelli have amazing chemistry. Their story slowly unfolds and you can feel the energy between them. I loved the surprise development that unfolds. The way secrets were revealed and how the characters have a chance to heal past hurts was genuine. I enjoyed how you can sense who is next up in the series even before the end of the book is near. Never once does it take anything away from the story at hand. It just brings me closer to the characters. This was sweet and steamy. Great addition to the series.

  • Love everything about this

    By singneon
    Excellent!!! Very well written romance story, I love both characters. Kelli is bold, hard working, sassy and grateful. Luke is such a gentleman, a bit more reserved or rather has an one track mind focused on not losing his family ranch. A few days away from the ranch handling ranch business, helps clear the “air” a bit and Luke really makes you long for the opportunity to fall for this cowboy. Their story really touches the heart, their chemistry is off the charts & their antics are at times hilarious. They are very well matched also have great family circle on the ranch, very supportive & upfront. I love that the author focuses on plot and the couple without all the "extra" drama that is so overwhelmingly popular these days, it keeps you on track with the plot and lets you settle down into their story, love that. I requested a free copy and am voluntarily reviewing.
