Former surgeon and self-professed life-long bachelor Evan Manning has one thing on his mind—to reclaim the career that a car accident stole from him. But when he's forced to return to his hometown of Red River, Evan comes face-to-face with the gorgeous woman who's haunted his dreams for the last year—the woman he rescued from the burning car that injured his hand. Now Evan needs her help. In a month, he'll have the job opportunity of a lifetime...he just needs a wife to get it.
Artist Grace Matheson is down on her luck again…until she walks into Evan Manning's office. When her sexy former hero hears that she needs work, he offers her a job and a home—if she'll pretend she's his fiancée. Grace knows she shouldn't fall for him. Once the month is up, Evan will be back to his old life. But the more time they spend together, the more real their feelings become—and the more likely heartbreak is.
Each book in the Red River series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 A Risk Worth Taking
Book #2 The Best Man's Baby
Book #3 The Doctor's Fake Fiancee

I love small town romance!
Grace Matheson and her son were in an accident and were both saved by Dr. Evan Manning. Over a year later she and her son finally track him down to say thank you. As it happens, the doctor Evan was filling in for needed a receptionist and Grace just happened to be looking for a job. Evan offered it to her and as part of the job, he needed her to pretend to be his fiancee for one month. He was applying for the position of CEO of Medcorp and Medcorp is very family oriented. A little wary of the deceit, she agrees. Being Evan's fake fiancee and working with him every day is going to test Grace's self control. She must keep reminding herself that he's leaving and he doesn't want to be a small town doctor with a ready made family. After meeting and spending so much time with Grace and her son, will Evan still long for the big city life or can he be satisfied with a small town practice?
This is a small town feel-good story with smart women and gorgeous, sexy men. I love stories with a strong sense of family.
