For as long as anyone can remember Seylah Wickes-Barnes has been at the side of August Leclaire, her best friend and the boy her fathers took under their wing.

Now a grown woman and looking for love, Seylah's deepest regret, and secret, is quickly coming to surface: She has been in love with August for as long as she can remember.

For years she has been content in her role as secretary to the Sheriff's department in Gold Sky, Montana. Mostly for the opportunity to be around the men of her family, and the one who still owns her heart. But there is no denying that the woman behind the desk is far more suited to wielding a gun and keeping the peace. If only she could convince her fathers to see her in a new light, as a person worthy of a deputy's badge.

Determined to put her past behind her, Seylah gives her attentions to a handsome new arrival. One who sweeps Seylah off her feet-quite literally. Things are almost perfect until August suddenly declares his intent to court her. Can she trust that August's affections are true and not inspired by jealousy?

Amongst gun fights and forbidden kisses, childhood friendships mature into a love built on forever and intimate desire in this tale of friends-to-prickly-allies-to-lovers romance.

"Find the place where love exists and ask for room."

Florence Wickes-Barnes's reputation proceeds her in Gold Sky, Montana. Seen as dramatic and too passionate for her own good, none could have predicated just how much her heart yearns for a love as steady as that of her mother and two fathers. But Florence's approach of aiming to fit two unattached men together like mismatched puzzle pieces does little for her in the way of love and courtship. Her desire for wedded bliss seems impossible until her mother imparts a bit of wisdom to her..."find the place where love exists and ask for room."

It seems impossible until she spots Ansel Ortega and Brenden Black across the assembly room. Two men new to town and obviously deeply in love. Florence knows the town will accept another triad, but can she escape the doubts of her past to trust Ansel and Brenden with her heart? Florence will dare to ask for space in their love, but will the lovers find room between them for Florence?

Between the opera house and snowy hills of Montana three people find space in their hearts for each other and a beautiful triad develops to rival even the love of Julie Baptiste and her husbands.

Visit historic Gold Sky for another dose of out-sized HEAs and joyful frontier living, where diversity reigns supreme.
