In Catherine Anderson's newest installment in the Harrigan family series, an unlikely couple is brought together under circumstances that defy all reason....

Tragedy has struck the Harrigans--Quincy's beloved sister-in-law Loni is gravely ill and nearing death. Quincy, like his brothers, feels helpless to save her, and the clock is ticking. Then, with perfect timing, a winsome red-haired woman named Ceara O'Ceallaigh mysteriously appears on Quincy's property and insists that Loni can be cured. Only Quincy, she says, as the sole remaining Harrigan bachelor, can make it happen—by marrying Ceara.

To Quincy, Ceara is a charming and quite likely deranged spinner of dreams who can't prove she's telling the truth. But how can he pass up any attempt to restore Loni to health? Against all better judgment, he decides to marry Ceara. Maybe he's making the worst mistake of his life. Or maybe he's opening himself up to possibilities that defy explanation...and will send him on a miraculous journey toward enough love to last forever.

Harrigan Family Novel #3
January 2009
ISBN-10: 0451225716
ISBN-13: 978-0451225719

I'm posting something purely for fun, a DISCARDED LOVE SCENE that never made it into the final version of this book. I hope you enjoy getting a sneak preview of Rainie and Parker in a scene that might have been, if only it had worked.

"It's back to Crystal Falls, Ore., as the next Harrigan brother meets his romantic denouement. When opening an Anderson novel, readers encounter great characterization as well as complex emotional issues. Poignant and funny, yet laced with danger, this is a truly enchanting read." — Romantic Times BOOKviews

"A damaged but ultimately resilient heroine, a strong, intuitively caring hero, and an intensely loyal, rowdy family who protect their own quickly draw readers into this tense, well-crafted, riveting tale that keeps the suspense on target. Anderson's novels often address serious issues, including women escaping abusive situations. A powerfully compelling story of survival, healing, and hope, this is the third in the Harrigan family stories and one of the author's best to date. Anderson (Morning Light), who lives in rural Oregon, is noted for her sensitive, insightful, family-centered romances." — Library Journal

Known for her "heartwarming, gently sensual" (Library Journal) novels, New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson brings us another emotionally compelling story about the hard-as-nails, fiercely loyal Harrigan family.

Faking her own death is the only way Rainie Hall can hope to escape her brutal, murderous husband. Now, with a new identity, she finds refuge in the rural community of Crystal Falls, Oregon, where she starts work on a horse ranch run by rugged, dangerously good-looking Parker Harrigan.

Parker's word is his honor, and he can't tolerate liars. When he realizes that Rainie hasn't been truthful with him, he's furious, then concerned. Clearly she's a woman in trouble, and if she'll trust him, he'll do right by her. But as their initial attraction blossoms into a deep and thrilling passion, Rainie fears that she can never escape retribution from the man who has sworn to kill her. Parker swears to protect Rainie no matter what, but even he can't help wondering whether all his strength and ingenuity can save the love of his life from a determined psychopath....

Best Ever Contemporary Romance Books

"Crusty Clint Harrigan (of the same Harrigan clan as Anderson's Sun Kissed), is, at 37, a Catholic cowboy who's sworn off romance. The arrival of a cute Catholic clairvoyant in his hometown of Crystal Falls, Ore., challenges his resolve and his skepticism. Seer Loni Kendra MacEwen, still a virgin at 31, is shocked when she bumps into Clint at the grocery store. He's the dream cowboy she's had visions of her whole life, and she has recently connected those visions to visions of Trevor, an endangered boy who (along with his protective Saint Bernard) was lost in the Shoshone Wilderness Area after a river accident killed his mom and stepdad, an Oregon senator. Loni tells a resistant Clint he's the only one who can save Trevor, and soon the hunt is on. Though pillow (and saddle) talk threaten to overwhelm the action, veteran romance queen Anderson infuses the plot with all the warm and fuzzy woo-woo of TV's Ghost Whisperer." —Publishers Weekly

"Heartwarming." —Library Journal

"Superbly written." "Romantic through and through." —Booklist

Born with second sight, Loni MacEwen must warn the handsome rancher Clint Harrigan that his son is in danger—except he doesn't even have a son. Then the drama Loni predicted unfolds on the news: an orphaned boy is lost in the wilderness. As Loni and Clint help in the search for the boy, they begin to form a bond of their own...
