Where Love Lives: The Inheritance

Where Love Lives Final(1)“Threadleaf Phacelia”

One night changed them both forever. … As Zoe and Matt tussle over the best use of a billionaire’s bequest, a deeper question looms: Will one night stand in the way of their spending the rest of their days together?

Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt Halderman he ran out on a spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met. Now he’s found that a chance meeting with billionaire Harold Hopewell has resulted in an inheritance that will allow Matt to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for rodeo horses at the end of their lives.

Zoe Parisi hasn’t forgotten Matt or the night he walked out on her. She lost her head that night, but it’s been squarely back on her shoulders ever since. She’s a doctor now and is on track to take over an established practice in Knighton, Wyoming. She’d been sure when she decided to settle in Knighton that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever and with a bunch of money.

Zoe wants nothing to do with Matt or his good looks … but his money’s a whole different matter. She could use those funds to make desperately needed improvements to medical care for all the people around Knighton.

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming – and so do the women.

The Inheritance Project

You met Zoe in “Jack’s Heart” and her grandparents Ruth and Hugh Moski have appeared in each of my Wyoming Wildflowers stories. You can see Matt at the start of his rodeo cowboy career by reading the emotional second-chance-at-love story of Kalli and Walker in “Rodeo Nights,” a prequel to “Where Love Lives.”

And here’s another exciting element of “Where Love Lives”:  Not only is it Book 6 of Wyoming Wildflowers, it’s also part of a very special multi-author project called The Inheritance. Matt Halderman is one of several people to receive a surprising inheritance. The eccentric Harold Hopewell has left an unusual will that details bequests of all sorts, tailored to people he encountered from all walks of life.

The Inheritance stories tell how these bequests affect the life – and loves – of 15 of those people. These first books will be released in 2016 – two in March, then one a month, with stories from Judith Arnold, Jean Brashear, Mary Campisi, Kathy Carmichael, Margaret Daley, Donna Fasano, Amy Gamet, Teresa Hill, Julia Kent, Trish McCallan, Lisa Mondello, Deb Salonen, Kathryn Shay and Pat Van Wie.
