Rancher Staten Kirkland, the last descendant of Ransom Canyon’s founding father, is rugged and practical to the last. No one knows that when his troubling memories threaten to overwhelm him, he runs to lovely, reclusive Quinn O’Grady…or that she has her own secret that no one living knows.

Young Lucas Reyes has his eye on the prize—college, and the chance to become something more than a ranch hand’s son. But one night, one wrong decision, will set his life on a course even he hadn’t imagined.

Yancy Grey is running hard from his troubled past. He doesn’t plan to stick around Ransom Canyon, just long enough to learn the town’s weaknesses and how to use them for personal gain. Only Yancy, a common criminal since he was old enough to reach a car’s pedals, isn’t prepared for what he encounters.

In this dramatic new series, the lives, loves and ambitions of four families will converge, set against a landscape that can be as unforgiving as it is beautiful, where passion, property and pride are worth fighting—and even dying—for.

Ellen ButlerI’d like to begin by thanking Jen at Romancing the Book for having me. I always enjoy reaching out to new readers. For you Romancing the Book fans, I’ve decided to share my Top 5 Places to Visit Before I Kick the Bucket. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to a number of fabulous cities here in the United States as well as internationally, but there are still a number of places and wonders of the world I would love to see.

Top 5 Places I Need to Visit Before Heading to the Big Spa in the Sky

5.  Portland, Oregon – I’ve never been to the Pacific Northwest, and I have relatives who live there. (I know, shame on me.) So, Portland will hopefully happen sooner rather than later.

4.  Hawaii – I’m addicted to the HGTV show Hawaii Life. Each week I jealously watch strangers purchase half-million dollar shoeboxes and I want to be them. I mean, really, who doesn’t want to spend a few weeks in paradise, much less the rest of their lives?

3.  Amsterdam – When I was in grad school I bypassed a chance to spend a semester in the Netherlands in order to graduate early. Yup, you guessed it, one of the biggest regrets of my life. What was I thinking? I’ve traveled all over Europe but still haven’t gotten to Amsterdam. Now it’s a nagging little voice in the back of my head that I’d love check off the bucket list.

2.  Argentina – When my father was a child he spent his childhood years growing up in Buenos Aires, and a few years ago he returned for a visit. The stories I grew up with, along with the photos from his recent trip,make me long to see the Spanish-style architecture and embrace the laid-back culture. Long live tango!
