The Triplets' Secret Wish

Dear Reader,

People dream big in Texas. The bigger, the brasher the goal, the better. This is the case for Emma Lockhart and Tom Reid. United from childhood, they dated all through high school and college, and even planned to marry. After they finished business school at a prestigious Ivy League college.

Unfortunately, life happens when you are busy making other plans. Tragedy struck. Tom could no longer hold up his end of the bargain. Emma sympathized with her fiance’s plight, but not to the point she was willing to summarily give up all their mutual ambitions. Whereas Tom wanted new dreams. Unable to broker a solution, they broke up and went their separate ways.

Six and a half years later, Emma is back in Laramie County. Big degree and sought-after apprenticeship under her belt, she is no closer to fame and fortune than when she left. Tom, meanwhile, is living the dream. Sadly, he is a widower now, but he has three adorable four and a half year old sons. Two thriving businesses. The family ranch and commercial real estate.

For months, they are able to avoid each other, but when Tom becomes Emma’s landlord, and is tasked with possibly helping her achieve the pursuit that drove her out of his arms, he has a decision to make. As does she. For she has fallen in love with his triplet sons, and they want her for their mommy. What is a woman to do when she knows she can’t have it all? Or can she….?

I hope you enjoy this story as much as I loved writing it.

Best wishes,
Cathy Gillen Thacker

Their Texas Christmas Gift

Dear Reader,

There are times when it is easy to know what to do. Others, when trying to figure out what is right, is a lot more elusive.

This is the situation that Faith Lockhart Hewitt and Lt. Zach Callahan find themselves in. Faith has been fostering five-month-old Quinn ever since his birth mother died. She is days away from adopting him when Zach Callahan arrives. The Navy SEAL has just discovered he has a baby boy, and he very much wants to be part of Quinn’s life. But there is a hitch. He is still active-duty military and will not be there to care for his son. The only fair thing to do…the only right thing… is to let Faith help him raise Quinn.

Unfortunately, their plan is not as easy to implement as they hope. Before they know it, they are married. That, too, seems simple enough. They won’t be together more than a few weeks or months a year. So it ought to be easy to just be co-parents, and friends, and leave it at that, right….? 😊

I hope you enjoy this Christmas story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Happy holidays to everyone!

Best wishes,
Cathy Gillen Thacker

Their Texas Triplets

Dear Reader,

Families. Both a blessing. And a burden. When we need them and they are there for us, helping and supporting, we are incredibly grateful. But when they don’t agree with what we’re trying to do….it is way too easy to become irritated.

No one knows this better than cowboy/rancher Cooper Maitland. He loves his little sister dearly and was even her guardian for a time. But he’s never agreed with any of her plans. And he really doesn’t like it when she leaves her one year old triplets in his care—without even asking first! After all, what does he know about babies?

Luckily, his next door neighbor and former nemesis, Jillian Lockhart, knows a lot about little ones. She is much more understanding about what his sister has done. Plus, she doesn’t mind doing the neighborly thing and helping out with the kids. Even going so far as offering her home for them to stay in.

Cooper is grateful for Jillian’s help. He really comes to depend on her friendship. But when their attraction for each other flames wildly out of control, things start to get really complicated. Was it love drawing them together, or merely the false intimacy that comes from weathering any sort of trauma or hardship together? Only time, and their hearts, will tell.

I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Best wishes,
Cathy Gillen Thacker
