When the River's End Ranch series ended after sixty (yes, sixty!) books, the same authors decided to continue our stories in a nearby town. Quinn Valley and the ranch located there is closely connected to River's End Ranch; the characters and setting overlap. The Quinn family is five separate branches of five siblings each, and our romances revolve around these cousins. My first several books in QVR are characters introduced in the RER universe....
Caroline's Quinn Valley Ranch books:
In the years Andrew McIver has been an engineer at River’s End Ranch, he’s watched his friends and colleagues find love time and again…but despite his many first dates, no one special has kindled that spark for him. And he’s reached the point in his career where he’s tired. He needs a change, although he won’t admit it to his sister. She’s the only family member he still speaks to; he might be a member of the sprawling Quinn family, but he hasn’t spoken to any of them in years. Especially not his Uncle Bob…
Rachel Chakrabarti is the Assistant General Manager for the Quinn Hotel and Spa, and her boss, Bob Quinn, has put her in charge of finding a new chief engineer. But that stress is nothing compared to the way her heart pounds when she meets her date for the first time; Andrew is gorgeous and capable and a brilliant kisser! But once she figures out who he is, she decides it’s up to her to force a reconciliation between Andrew and his uncle.
And that’s when everything goes wrong.
With Thanksgiving only days away, can Rachel patch things up with the man she’s coming to love? Can she help Andrew see that family is the most important thing to be thankful for? It’s going to take one determined lady and one brilliant engineer to fix this forever!
It's taken years, but elementary-school librarian Heather Shulman is finally where she wants to be in life. Memories of her abusive ex have faded, her two kids are happy and healthy and involved in more extracurricular activities than she can follow, and she's made peace with her family. Yes, she's pleased...and it only meant giving up on one of her dreams.
Her scriptwriting was never going to be famous anyhow. And by taking commissions to re-write Shakespeare's plays for her son's teen theater program, she gets to practice, at least. The program's Valentine's Day production of Twelfth Night is going swimmingly...until the lead's uncle shows up!
Jack Raven is one of Hollywood's heartthrobs, and he's got a secret. That persona is just a mask to hide his true self, Jonathan Ravenwing. And as Jonathan, he agrees to help with his niece's Shakespearean performance, even though he's much more comfortable with the black-leather-and-explosions type of theater! But the longer he stays in small-town Idaho, the more he resents having to pretend to be someone else, just to be successful.
Who would've guessed a divorcee librarian from a small town could find love with an American legend? But these two have more than just their careers standing in their way. Get ready for a legendary Valentine's Day!
