    “All pop novels ought to be as hard to put down as Marrying Mom”—from theNew York Times bestselling author of The First Wives Club (People). When Phyllis Geronomous decides to relocate from Florida to New York to be very (very) close to her grown children, panic erupts. She’s witty, she’s decisive, and she’s very (very) difficult. The kids decide to take matters into their own hands and start a search for a generous gentleman of means—regardless of criminal record—to take their mom off of their hands and out of state. Starting with a makeover and a suite at a swanky hotel for mom, siblings Sigourney, Bruce, and Sharon put their plan into action. “The premise is pure TV farce, fueled by Goldsmith’s clever dialogue and acerbic one-liners . . . Goldsmith steers the principals to an ultra-happy ending and an inescapable conclusion: all families are dysfunctional, but every dysfunctional family is wacky in its own way” (Publishers Weekly). “A raucous comedy . . . Goldsmith keeps readers laughing . . . [She] has scored another hot book and showed us yet another side of her versatile personality.”—Naples Daily News

Only trouble is, a few flashes of memory make Falcon wonder if he's already married. He can't imagine abandoning a wife. But his pa did just that--twice. When Falcon claims his inheritance in the West, Cheyenne is cut out of the ranch she was raised on, leaving her bitter and angry.

    Soon it's clear someone is gunning for the Hunt brothers. When one of his brothers is shot, Falcon and Cheyenne set out to find who attacked him. They encounter rustled cattle, traitorous cowhands, a missing woman, and outlaws that take all their savvy to overcome. As love grows between these two independent people, Falcon must piece together his past if they're to have any chance at a future.
