No one is a stranger in Caribou Crossing, a small Western town made for healing and second chances...
She's raising her son on her own, but that's just fine with Lark Cantrell. Caribou Crossing's fire chief comes from a long line of strong, independent women--who have lousy luck with men. Lark's ex-husband walked out when Jayden was born with cerebral palsy. No matter--Jayden, now ten, is a bright, terrific kid, and the love of her life. When it comes to men, Lark is content with the occasional casual hookup; there's no room in her heart for more disappointment.
Major Eric Weaver is in Caribou Crossing for one reason: to complete his rehabilitation so he can return to active service. Haunted by what went down in Afghanistan, his wounded soul isn't healing as quickly as his body. But it's almost impossible to resist the appeal of the sexy, feisty fire chief and her plucky son--not to mention the friendly, caring small town way of life. In Lark's loving arms, the scarred soldier begins to believe he may finally have found his true home... Praise for Susan Fox's Caribou Crossing series

Fox’s fifth Caribou Crossing novel, set in British Columbia, proves again that she knows what women want in a contemporary romance. When Fire Chief Lark Cantrell—tough, sexy, six feet tall, and divorced—has to rescue “mouthwateringly hot” Canadian Armed Forces Major Eric Weaver out of his burning rented farm house, her action sets off a physical passion that shakes them both. Eric is a recent amputee due to injuries sustained in Afghanistan, and he’s trying to get a handle on his PTSD. Lark’s happy with her warm family life with her mother and her son, who is taking riding lessons to help control his cerebral palsy. Lark also has sworn never to let her sexual needs, satisfied in carefully orchestrated one-night stands, interfere with her professional and family responsibilities; and Eric intends to go back to active service, which his army-brat boyhood convinced him was anathema to family life, so he won’t consider marrying. But their stunning chemistry might change all their plans. Fox fleshes out this steamy mating dance with substantial secondary characters and skillful plotting, making this one hot romance to remember. Agent: Emily Sylvan Kim, Prospect Agency. (June)
