A lady farmer and a disgraced detective--will what starts as an arrangement turn into something more?

Leigh Hawthorne, a widow and local farmer in Tucker Springs, Massachusetts, answers an unusual letter from a man out west, who wants to marry a woman with ranching expertise. Hoping to find a better life, Leigh embarks on a journey to Chance City, Oklahoma.

Fired for breaking Pinkerton rules, former detective, Cyrus Decker, just wants to live a quiet life as a cattle rancher. The problem is that he knows nothing about ranching—and his bank account shows it. Dogged by Chance City’s sheriff to join his staff, and plagued by money woes, Cy desperately needs help to turn their ranch around. He hopes that Leigh is the answer to his prayers.

Brought together by necessity, will Leigh and Cy find love or will their attempt to find lasting happiness meet with disaster? Join the Chance City adventure as its citizens battle opposing forces and mayhem in their searches for love and a brighter future.

About Robin Deeter (Scranton, Pennsylvania Author)

Robin Deeter

Robin Deeter fell in love with the written word the day she picked up “The Black Stallion” by Walter Farley, and that love affair continues to this day. In high school, she realized she could do more than read good stories; she could learn to write them, too. She went on to hone her craft with the Creative Writing Program through Full Sail University.

But her first love was entertaining, so she tried her hand at singing and acting. But Motown and Nashville didn’t call, and Hollywood and Broadway ignored her. So, she concentrated her creative juices on writing to entertain others. And she’s been writing ever since.

In between writing her historical western and contemporary romance novels, she still pursues her love of music and theatrics with local performances. She currently writes two book series; the Chance City Series and the Paha Sapa Saga. She’s also involved in several other multi-author series and has more novel ideas that she’s exploring.

If you can’t find her writing or performing locally in Pennsylvania, where she resides, you’ll catch her sporting the Black and Gold and cheering on her Pittsburgh Steelers. Sign up on her website, for email alerts and to be entered in contests.
