On her drive from Chicago to Indian Rock, Arizona in a hot pink Volkswagen Bug, Echo Wells picks up a ragged dog who once she washes the dirt off the mutt turns out to be a female white Lab she dubs Avalon. In Indian Rock, Echo plans to open up a bookstore the town¿s first, next door to the Curl and Twirl combo beauty parlor and baton-twirling school owned by her landlady Cora Tellington. When businessman Rance McKettrick learns from his mother-in-law Cora that an independent bookstore was coming, he tells her no way will it survive. Though he is a terrific father to her twin grandchildren, Rianna and Maeve, Cora worries that Rance has not moved on since the death five years ago of Julie, a woman they both loved him as her husband while her as her mother. Echo hits it off with Cora and her grandchildren from the first meeting. However when she and Rance meet, sparks fly immediately as both are shocked by the attraction they fumblingly hide from one another though his female relatives gleefully see the obvious. --- The incredible cast makes Linda Lael Miller¿s contemporary romance a superior reading experience that will garner the superb author many award nominations. Cousin to the hero of the first McKettrick¿s Men tale (see MCKETTRICK¿S LUCK), Rance avoids love treating it like a plague as he remains scarred from his Julie¿s death until now. The eccentric Echo brings joy into the lives of Cora and her grandchildren with her enthusiasm for life emulated by her sidekick Avalon. Readers will treasure this wonderful entry in the McKettrick saga as Rance and Echo insist they're not in love, but Cora, Avalon and the girls know otherwise. --- Harriet Klausner

What is this? Publication date of this book is most certainly NOT 02/2012, this is an old book with new cover. This is false advertising!!!!! I purchased the same book twice due to new publication date and new cover mistakenly thinking this was a new book by Linda Lael ...

I purchased the same book twice due to new publication date and new cover mistakenly thinking this was a new book by Linda Lael Miller. Whoever is doing this either the publisher or Barnes and Noble... this is WRONG!!!!!!! If this continues I most certainly will NEVER purchase another book by this author. As readers and paying customers, we certainly deserve honesty.

    WOW! What a great story.

    After reading 'McKettrick's Choice' I was ready for another great Miller book. 'Pride' was even better than 'Choice' and I couldn't put it down until it was finished. You won't be disappointed in this series or in this book.

    Wonderful Read!

    One rainy night at a truck stop, one pink Volkswagen Beetle, one lost, wet dog and one exasperated woman declaring to the Universe that she did NOT need a dog, and I was hooked. Of course it didn't hurt that she met a handsome widower with two adorable, typical daughters. I couldn't wait to get to the finish and was sad when I did--sad that there wasn't more to read. You romance readers know the feeling. I'm buying the sequal as soon as I can.

    I absolutely love Linda Lael Miller's series books. I get so wr

    I absolutely love Linda Lael Miller's series books. I get so wrapped up in each family that I hate to finish the last book of a series. This book (as well as her other books), have a feel good ending and just the right amount of sexual tenderness.

    An enjoyable series.

    Good western romance for those that are looking for 'true love' in their stories and some sexual tension.
