Nicole Thomas is determined not to follow in the footsteps of her father. Instead of pursuing dangerous thrills as he did, she runs a risk-free antiques store, and protects her grandmother and sister. But when Andrew "Ace" Conners returns to their town of Reliance, Montana to settle his aunt's estate, Andrew finds himself tempting Nicole to take the biggest risk of all. Linda Ford, softcover, 170 pages.
Nicole Thomas runs her antique store as she runs her life - risk-free. She's determined to protect her grandmother and sister, even if it means her own desires must go unanswered. Her father died pursuing dangerous thrills, and she'll never abandon those in her care as he abandoned her. Andrew "Ace" Conners returns to Reliance, Montana, to settle the affairs of Aunt Millie - the woman who should have rescued him eighteen years ago following the death of his alcoholic mother. Ace knows the love of family is not for him, but Nicole determines to unlock his heart. He can't help falling in love with the dynamic, compassionate woman, and yet he knows his life is full of risks - risks Nicole can't bear to take. Could their hearts be crying out for the very thing they fear most?
LINDA FORD draws on her own experiences living in the Canadian prairie and Rockies to paint wonderful adventures in romance and faith. She lives in Alberta, Canada, with her family, and she writes as much as her full-time job of taking care of a parapelgic and four kids, who are still at home, will allow. Linda says, 'I thank God that He has given me a full, productive life and that I'm not bored. I thank Him for placing a little bit of the creative energy revealed in His creation into me, and I pray I might use my writing for His honor and glory.'
