I CROSS MY HEART (4) by Vicki Lewis Thompson: This fun entry in the popular Sons of Chance series stars ranch hand Nash Bledsoe, who is back in town and getting on his feet after splitting with his wife — who drove him crazy by quoting from the bestselling self-help books by Bethany Grace. Fire in the distance leads him to check out the neighboring ranch of a recently deceased hermit, whose stressed and mourning daughter has set fire to his lounger in the front yard. By helping her renovate the unkept house and place the ranch for sale, he discovers she is none other than Bethany Grace. She is the complete opposite of what he expects, and they strike up a sizzling affair.
