It is up to him to decide whether children's injuries are from legitimate accidents or stem from neglect or abuse...the latter two of which will result in removal from the home environment. His deep longing for children of his own makes it especially difficult to see mistreated children, and he finds one case particularly troubling... Kathy L.

Dance wants nothing to do with it, even as Constance's bridesmaids prescribe that a little harmless flirtation is just the thing to take her mind off of her truant groom. Stephanie Berget: Gimme Some Sugar Pastry chef, Cary Crockett, is on the run and finds the perfect hiding place at the remote Circle W Ranch. She has to convince ranch owner Micah West she's up to the job of feeding his hired hands. The overwhelming attraction she feels toward him was nowhere in the job description.
