Book Description

A heartwarming novella from Maureen Child, the USA TODAY bestselling author of Charms…

The menfolk of Buckshot, California are rattled – Emma Taylor is back from finishing school, and she wants to fancify them. She insists they wear suits to the annual Valentine’s Day dance. Suits! When Emma sets her mind to something, she don’t give up. Look at how she chased Sheriff J.T. Phillips for years before her pa finally sent her away!

J.T. would do anything for Emma now that she’s all grown up – he’d even learn to dance. She’s the most breathtaking woman he’s ever seen. But when she offered her heart to him once before, he broke it… will she ever trust him with it again?

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, yet Wonderful read March 17, 2012

I was able to purchase this book when it was free. It did not disappoint. The characters are likeable, it moves quickly and yet it sucks you in. JT and Emma were characters with a back story, but that is what makes you root for them. If you like quick, good reads, this is a must!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a feel-good, heartwarming tale with a cute twist at the end, this is the story for you. And I had to hold off the happy tears at the end. If it makes me want to cry, I know it's good. =o)

3.0 out of 5 stars Just an okay book March 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read this author before and have enjoyed her books. I had a hard time reading this short story. The girl character Emma was really annoying. She just seemed very immature. The love between her and J.T just didn't seem real. The book started with her back in an old fashion town after being away for 2 years in "finishing school", there was never a hint of passion or love between the characters so it just didn't feel real when he was trying to get her and she was trying to avoid him. Their seem to be no younger people in the town, all the characters Emma was planning this Valentines dance for seemed to be 60 and older. Nothing in this book did it for me. More like 2 1/2 stars

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money May 20, 2014

I've read other books of her's and they were good. This book didn't even seem like it was from the same author. Greatly disappointed. It's mostly dialog and not entertaining dialog at that.

I got it for free. Not really a western fan but it wasn't bad. I would give the author another try if she writes more then just westerns.

More About the Author

USA Today best selling author Maureen Child is the author of more than one hundred romance novels and novellas. Maureen is a seven time nominee for the prestigious Rita award from Romance Writers of America. (Think Oscars for romance writers).

One of her novels, A POCKETFUL OF PARADISE, was made into a CBS-TV movie called The Soul Collector, starring Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Greenwood and Ossie Davis.

Maureen was not only on the Texas set to watch her characters come to life in front of the cameras, she was also tossed into the last scene by her husband and the producer, who both thought this would be a fun way to humiliate an author!

When her kids were small, Maureen started writing as not only a way to stay sane, but in the hopes of finding a job she could do and stay at home with them. Sanity is still an issue, but she did manage to write her way into a career she wouldn't trade for anything.

Over the years, she's written under lots of different names and she prefers the term 'pseudonym' to 'alias'. As Ann Carberry, she wrote western historical romances. As Kathleen Kane, she wrote not only Americana romances, but western paranormal romances as well. As Sarah Hart, she wrote one really spectacular western paranormal that is still one of her favorites. And once, Ann Carberry even wrote a Victorian historical which she absolutely loved doing.

Under her own name, Maureen writes short contemporary novels for Silhouette Desire--books she loves to write because of their fast pace and condensed story telling. Maureen is also writing funny, contemporary paranormal romances for NAL and darker paranormal stories for Silhouette Nocturne.

Life is busy but when she isn't writing you can find Maureen sitting under her 'thinking tree', coming up with new ideas for even more stories. When she isn't dreaming up a new book or writing a current one, Maureen loves to travel. Her favorite vacation spot is Ireland, with Scotland coming in a very close second. She and her husband love a good road trip and Maureen's looking forward to the day when she can actually drive to Ireland. Talk about the best of both worlds!

Maureen, a native Californian recently moved to the mountains of Utah and is learning how to live with snow! Visit her online at
