Originally published as The Valentine Two-Step in 2002, New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne—and her trademark warmth and charm—returns to the town of Salt River!
Single father Matt Harte learned the hard way not to trust women. His wife left him because she couldn’t deal with ranch life—so the last thing he wants to do is plan the annual Valentine’s Day dance. His daughter, Lucy, has plans for her father; she’s determined to get him to fall for beautiful vet and recent Salt River transplant Ellie Webster.
Ellie knows that Matt doesn’t want her in his town, let alone on the too-small dance committee of two. It’s not as if she wants to spend all that one-on-one time with the rugged rancher, imagining what it would be like to be his partner—for real…

Another fine book by RaeAnne Thayne
Two people, one scarred by an unfaithful wife & the other abandoned as a small child & raised moving from foster home to foster home. Neither expected to ever give their heart to another person who might inflict pain the way they had already experienced. Two 9 year old daughters that became instant best friends, one desperately wanting a mother, the other just as hungry for a father. It wasn’t at all hard to see the plot almost from the beginning. Stir in a “mystery” person trying to scare the newcomer away, a mystery that anybody could solve in 30 seconds. Yet, with all of that being said, I really enjoyed the book. Even if the plot is a foregone conclusion, it was still a very enjoyable book. I’ve enjoyed all of the RaeAnne Thayne books that I’ve bought. This one was no exception.
