It was only supposed to be a temporary home…

He interrupts her plans…

When police chief Anson Curry returns a lost little girl to her frantic mother, his only goal is to ease the single mom’s anxiety. But it doesn’t take long for Tess Harper’s amazing child to have Anson wrapped around her little finger—and for Tess to have him thinking about a possible relationship. As for Tess, she’s tempted—even though she had planned to be in Oak Hollow, Texas, only temporarily. But after losing her father and brother in the line of duty, Tess thinks Anson’s job poses too much of a risk to her heart. And Anson has no plans to get involved with someone who’s planning on leaving.

5-Star Amazon Review

“I was drawn to this story by the cover. It didn’t disappoint! I loved this book!”



“I absolutely loved A Sheriff’s Star. Both Anson and Tess are moving away from their demons in the past, and little Hannah along with Nan is making it easy for them to trust and fall in love. The only bad thing about the story is that it ended.”
