"Charming, witty, and fun. There's no better read. I enjoyed every word!" --DEBBIE MACOMBER, #1 New York Times bestselling author


When it comes to business, Avery King always comes out on top. So after a very public breakup, work is the perfect excuse to flee the Windy City for the gentle breezes of Aspen, Colorado. Her mission: acquire the land of a rundown mountain ranch. Avery expects an easy win . . . until she meets the rugged and irresistible rancher who won't give up his property without a fight.

Bryce Walker is stunned by the stubborn beauty determined to get what she wants. But what she wants is his last connection to the life he used to have. Bryce has plans to return the ranch to its former glory and no way will he sell his family home. Yet the more time he spends with Avery, the more her sweet touch makes him forget his painful memories. Now Bryce must decide whether living in the past is worth losing his future . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 20, 2015 – Richardson's debut packs a powerful emotional punch. Chicago executive Avery King has just broken up with her boyfriend rather publicly, and she needs to leave town quickly. She heads to Aspen, Colo., where Bryce Walker's family ranch is on her to-buy list. Bryce has no interest in selling; he's still mourning his wife's death, and all he wants to do is cling to his heritage. Expecting to charm Bryce out of his property, Avery is the one who ends up surprised when she falls deeply in love with the rugged widower. As she empathizes with Bryce, Avery battles with her father, who is determined to acquire the land at any cost. Richardson's deft characterization creates a hero and heroine who will elicit laughs in some places and tears in others.

Customer Reviews

No Better Man

This small-town mountain love story is a perfect summertime beach read. Romance readers will flip for chapter 22. Avery King is smart, rich and a great softball player to boot. But she seeks more than the high-powered executive life she has lived under her father’s reign as a Chicago real estate tycoon. What Avery needs is Bryce Walker and his tight-knit middle America community seated in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. This book is as much a love story between two people as it is a new romance with an old way of life. Charming and fun! Can’t wait for October when Richardson’s next book in her Heart of the Rockies series comes out: Something Like Love.

An amazing romance!

I love Avery and Bryce. This is a beautifully written heartfelt romance. One of my new favorites!
