Gunnery Sergeant Jane Donovan’s home is the U.S. Marine Corps. Unfortunately, she’s made a mistake, a tragic mistake that cost the life of an orphaned boy she’d been watching out for. Now, she only has one option to save the career that she loves: Put her future in the hands of Dr. Chase Russell.

Dr. Russell has problems of his own. While he was busy chasing a book deal that would allow him to speak about the treatment of veterans suffering from PTSD, he missed a client’s cry for help. In the aftermath of his own mistake, he leaves his lucrative practice in Chicago to start over on a lonely, neglected ranch in Oregon. When Jane arrives at the ranch with a painful hip and a cranky disposition, Dr. Russell wants nothing to do with her, but the fun is just beginning. This ex-counselor soon finds himself helping two runaway kids, and making sure that this stubborn heroine finds her way home. (SUSAN LUTE, March, 251 pp., $2.99)
