Carson Merrill loves only one thing more than Lone Creek Ranch—high school sweetheart Jessica Tate. He has plans to marry her, until one fateful night a devastating accident nearly kills her brother, James, and claims the use of his legs. Jessica flees to Nashville, blaming Carson for her brother’s paralysis. She avoids him—and James—for more than a year.
Jessica returns to Lone Creek as one of the top producing land developers in the area, and she has one goal—to banish Carson forever from her memory while taking what he still loves—Lone Creek Ranch. But God has other plans—to draw the two together in a development project that will satisfy both their desires, and help them to reclaim the love they once shared.

LONE CREEK RANCH
Another great series by Mary Manners. The characters are always well written. You like to get to know them. Think what I like most about Mary's books is they are romance books but they are a clean romance. But most important of all they are spiritual also. Read these novellas leaving one and feeling good. Mary writes from the heart.
