Publisher Description

He came for his son. He never expected her.

A sexy, intriguing stranger arrives unexpectedly at her Wyoming ranch, threatening the one thing Cambria protects more fiercely than her heart -- her family.

Bodie's discovery that he fathered a son 17 years ago starts a search that leads him to the warm and welcoming Weston family. But his response to one member of the family is far more than he ever expected. The sparks between him and Cambria are real ... and so is the danger to his hopes for their future if she finds out why he's really in Wyoming.

"It's one of those books that when you finish, you think, I'm definitely going to read that again and everything else this author has ever written!" - Live, Love, Write

Family is the core of the first book of this series, but family is not necessarily simple. As one reader review states, A Stranger in the Family "mixes love, family and complicated situations together. I could not put this book down."
