The guarded rancher is falling hard for Lana, but it can only end in heartbreak. Unless Sly can trust her with the secrets that keep him from believing that, just maybe, they could have a future together.

Leave The Past Behind

That's life lesson number one for Jenny Wyler. Which is why she's sequestered in the middle of rural Montana teaching in a one-room schoolhouse. Saddlers Prairie is good and far from the ex-fiancé who ran when he discovered the truth about her family. And from now on, Jenny would keep silent about her past!

But for Abby Dawson, a kindergartener in Jenny's class, silence isn't a choice. Not only shy, the little girl may be mute, and her father Adam needs Jenny's help. Determined to give the child a voice, the pair work together while denying their powerful attraction. Besides, what could a cattle rancher and big city teacher have in common anyway? Besides their love of a five-year-old girl. And the damaging secrets they are both hiding secrets that are bound to leak out.

To Mark Engle, it's simple. There's Los Angeles-success, money, excitement-and there's Montana. So when he finds himself stuck playing small-town M.D., Mark is less than pleased. The only appeal is clinic receptionist Stacy Andrews, a big-city escapee in love with Saddlers Prairie and its neighbors-are-family feel. Too bad rural and close- knit are exactly what Mark's looking to evade.

Stacy knows Mark's type too well. A career-driven man like that would never put a tiny community-much less a wife and family-first. So why is she hoping he'll stay? No one can overlook the chemistry between the pair, and soon the whole town conspires to push them together. But it'll take more than matchmaking for Mark to change his life plan, even if his heart truly belongs in Montana.

A Chance To Prove Himself 

Learning that she was adopted is the biggest shock of magazine writer Sarah Tigarden's life. Falling in love with champion bull rider Clay Hollyer is a close second. Years ago, she shared a sizzling kiss with the handsome rodeo star, only to hear that he was a player who enjoyed toying with women. After her profile of Clay called him on his caddish behavior, she never wanted to see him again. 
But as Sarah searches for her birth mother, Clay is unexpectedly by her side. Can this really be the same guy she condemned as a womanizer? As she gets closer to learning the stunning truth about her biological mom, Sarah also finds herself getting closer to Clay. Her head tells her it's a mistake...but her heart isn't so sure.

Ann Roth's latest Saddler's Prairie title does not rely on other tales or characters in the series to move it along. Her characters have compelling stories carrying them forward, and their passion is strong and convincing. Also, the obstacles and discoveries in Sarah's quest are realistically portrayed. --  4 1/2 stars   Affaire de Coeur

THE RANCHER SHE LOVED is a lovely heartwarming story. Modern adoptions are intent in maintaining privacy at seemingly all costs. But finding out your heritage is something worthwhile and important to many adoptees. The road to discovery can be rocky at times but in the end hopefully rewarding. Ann Roth masterfully tells the tale of an adopted adult on a mission. The folks you meet along the way will win your heart. -- Fresh Fiction

"What Exactly Are You Asking Santa For?"

"It’s A Secret. How Do You Spell Mommy?"

Nothing is more precious to Ryan Chase than five-year-old Maggie. She’s the reason the widower moved to Halo Island in the first place—he wanted to get away from his hectic, work-all-hours job so he could spend more time with his daughter. Ryan will do anything to make sure Maggie is protected from hurt, which means no attachments to anyone who comes into their lives—and plans to leave.

As soon as the holidays are over, Tina Morrell is going back to Seattle to her busy job, and hopefully a big promotion. Her career has always been the most important thing in Tina’s life...that is, until she meets the adorable Maggie and her incredibly hunky father. But Ryan won’t let Tina get close—even though his daughter seems to be bringing them together.

As the spirit of Christmas descends over the island, it’s the wishes of one little girl that may be granted!

Everything Was Planned Down To The Last Detail...

When Cammie Yarnell agrees to do a wedding at the Oceanside Bed and Breakfast, she knows the tough part will be keeping a smile on her face. Not too long ago she’d planned a walk down the aisle at the sumptuous B and B herself—and called it off. Worse, she’s working this event with Curt Blanco, the photographer who knew all about her fiancé’s cheating and kept it secret, betraying her trust as a friend.

Except Romance

Yet her anger starts to fade once the showers and dinner parties bring her closer to the man. Now Curt’s misguided belief that he’s bad for her is standing in the way of Cammie’s trip to the altar—with him.

Mitch Matthews was a regular guest at the Oceanside B and B, but had never before arrived without a beautiful woman at his side. This time he was here alone, to work on his book. So why, if he'd come here for solitude, did he want to spend so much time with the B and B's vivacious owner, Fran Bishop?

Fran had been drawn to Mitch for years, but she wasn't kidding herself—friendship was as far as their relationship would ever go. The gorgeous, charismatic motivational speaker wasn't the type to settle in the sleepy Pacific coast town of Cranberry, Oregon, especially with a woman like Fran, who wanted not just a husband and children, but solid roots.

Could this certified catch be looking at Fran in a whole new way? It takes an extraordinary event for him—and for Fran—to find out!

Beautiful Stranger

To an outsider, which Clint Strong was, Flatville seemed like any other small town. It had its busybodies, its local scandals...and an unassuming boarding house for stranded journeymen like him. But Alison O'Hara, mistress of the manor, was like no woman he'd ever met...

Suddenly, Clint was acting like the man of the house. Repairing squeaky hinges, chopping wood...kissing Alison with a possessiveness and passion that scared them both, especially Alison. What man had hurt his woman? What man had abandoned Alison's pint-sized little girl who loved ponies and pizza, and who pulled on Clint's rusty heartstrings? And could Clint transform from stranger in a small town to permanent husband and daddy?

Entrepreneur Will Stone was a competent exec, but when he became guardian to the son he'd never known about, Will did the only thing he knew--he hired help. Will employed nanny Dena Foster to parent his son, but soon he wanted more from this nurturing beauty--for himself!

Despite a bad marriage that made him mistrust women, Will warmed to Dena. Her gentle ways took the trepidation out of parenting, and Will grew closer to his son. But he also wanted to erase the doubt he saw in Dena's eyes about his feelings for her. Was being a successful businessman, caring father and loving husband too much to ask for?

"FATHER OF THE YEAR is a beautifully crafted tale about three vulnerable souls who definitely deserve to be loved. Amazingly talented author, Ann Roth, excels in penning an emotionally stimulating novel that will have readers hooked from the moment Will finds out about Harry. Ann Roth's FATHER OF THE YEAR is a story about family and strong bonds, about love and forgiveness. Warm characters beautifully portrayed, surrounded by deeply compelling emotions and vivid descriptions, all add up to make this a highly recommended romance!"

School for Men

The males of Elk Hills were clueless about how to treat females. But in her five-week class, psychotherapist Zoey Dare vowed to enlighten them, and the town's women would reap the benefits. Not Zoey, though. She'd long since given up on love and settled for helping others.

Every Class Has Its Bad Boy

Unfortunately for Zoey, hers was macho, unnervingly attractive Cole Tyler, who steadfastly refused to change but loved to ruffle her feathers, make her blush and generally charm her socks off. Their headstrong tug-of-war yanked Zoey dangerously off balance...until she collided with Cole's gorgeous chest and sexy smile.

But just who was reforming whom? And who was learning the best lessons about love?

"At times, Zoey sounds a little extreme, yet she's the perfect foil for Ann Roth's sinfully delicious Cole. Colorful secondary characters add sparkle."

Sometimes Losing Everything…
Learning of her husband Stephen’s fatal heart attack is the worst thing Mary Beth Mason can imagine--until she learns about the other family he left behind. Another wife, another daughter, another home hundreds of miles away in Seattle. For twenty years, Mary Beth’s life centered around pleasing and loving Stephen, socializing with his lawyer friends, taking part in the exclusive San Francisco clubs and guilds he prized, and raising their daughter Aurora while he was away on “business.” Having promised to take care of her forever, he left her instead with mountains of debt and a house mortgaged to the hilt.

Is The Only Way To Find Yourself…
But amidst the piles of unpaid bills, Mary Beth discovers some unexpected gifts—a fierce determination to begin again, a strength she never knew she possessed, and a most unlikely ally. Out of the ashes of a lie, she starts to create the life—and the family—she’s always wanted. A life built on trust, honesty, and perhaps even love…

"Another Life is a glorious celebration of the strength and resiliency of women. Ann Roth has a graceful writing style, sets an even pace, and has created outstanding characters.

In some families, there is pain and loss...

When sisters Margaret, Rose, and Quincy Lansing receive the tragic news that a car accident has claimed the life of their mother, they must return to their childhood home--and to one another's company. Although they are shocked and heartbroken, none of the Lansing sisters is eager to be back. For the painful memories they thought they'd left behind have suddenly resurfaced...

But there is also an unbreakable bond of love.

The Lansings were never a close or loving family. And each sibling had long ago found her own means of escape--Margaret into her lab work, Rose into her "perfect" marriage, Quincy into her acts of rebellion. So when crisis forces them together again, they discover that they know as little about one another as they did about their mother. And in unraveling her secrets, they find not only revelation, but also strength, hope, sisterhood, and a chance for love...

"Ann Roth touches the heart with a relationship story about sisters, loss, seeking maturity, and discovering that special bond that comes only with family. I read every page and loved it." -- Debbie Macomber

"This is my first book by Ann Roth, but it will not be my last. She's written a touching, beautiful story capturing the unique love shared by sisters. The sisters learn to share their burdens, fears and dreams with each other in a very realistic tale of overcoming a less than perfect childhood. The rejection felt as a child growing up, and remembered as an adult, is not always as it truly was experienced." -- Fresh Fiction

"Dysfunction is the hallmark of the Lansing sisters' lives and relationships in Roth's family drama. The primary character in this novel is the late Susan Lansing, whose deeply troubled psyche has etched permanent scars in her daughters' lives. As the action takes place over a short span of time, family secrets are revealed at a fast and furious pace. Roth definitely does drama!" -- Jill M. Smith, RT BookClub

"Award winning author Ann Roth has absolutely captured the complex relationship of sisters and shares it with her readers in such a clearly caring way. She demonstrates through dialog and character studies what drives each of the Lansing sisters and why they are the way they are. As a reader, I was totally immersed in the sister's struggles to let go of their unhappiness and become whole and loving with each other. MY SISTERS by talented Ann Roth evokes tears, laughter and contentment and is a must read for the whole sisterhood of women." -- SingleTitles.com
