Rachel Swift is a woman on the run. Max and Rye Harper are just the men to catch her.

A stalker sent Rachel's world reeling. Now she's running for her life, and Bliss, CO, seems like the perfect place to hide. Bliss is a strange little town, filled with artists, nudists, and the occasional conspiracy nut. It's a good place to start over.

Horse trainer Max and Sheriff Rye gave up on their dream of finding one perfect woman to share long ago. Rachel walks in, and they're both in love and fighting their true natures. When Rachel's past catches up with her, all of Bliss is in danger. Can Rachel stand up to the man who took everything? Rachel is done running. It's time for her to get back in the saddle and ride.

Welcome to Bliss, Colorado. Please, don’t shoot if you think you see a Bigfoot. It’s probably just one of the hairier men from the local nudist commune. If you’re concerned about potential alien abduction we have a resident “expert” who has tinfoil hats to spare. If you happen to be a political activist, you’ll appreciate the Friday lunch corner show by our friendly neighborhood Vegans. “Tolerance is our catch phrase”. Rachel says it best: “It was the weirdest little town”.

I so want to move to Bliss, Colorado! Ms. Oak has a skill for creating not only heart-warming, leave you breathless stories but entire communities that make the reader want to pull a Mary Poppins and jump right into the book. Take for instance the first book in the Nights in Bliss, Colorado series, Three To Ride. Rachel Swift has been on the move for more than a year when she runs out of gas in the quaint little mountain community of Bliss. Thanks to a stalker she has had to not only change her name and her appearance but she’s been too frightened to put down roots or get close to other people. In walk twins Max and Rye Harper along with the quirky yet welcoming close knit haven of Bliss.

Do you like a brooding "don’t cross me" alpha hero? If so, you’re going to love Max Harper. Max is known in the community for having quite a temper until he meets the shy and beautiful new waitress at Stella’s. Rachel has a way about her that makes Max want to not let her see him as a “bear” but as a potential forever kind of man. He suspects that she is running from something or someone and sets out to win her trust as well as her heart. When Max starts explaining how to break a skittish horse, like Rachel, I got a little breathless and tongue tied. The dialogue in this novel is priceless.

Max’s twin brother, Rye, is the sheriff of this odd little town. Rye is typically the more charming half of the twins. He’s easily attracted to Rachel from just seeing her across the room but as he watches how she handles his brother he quickly loses his heart. Max and Rye have a history of sharing women that hasn’t always ended well. I think you’ll love how their story comes together. They’ll have to come to grips with their need for each other when Rachel’s past catches up with her.

Rachel and the twin’s story isn't the last you’ll hear of Bliss. Thankfully! The follow-up story, Two To Love is already out and Ms. Oak has noted that she is writing One To Keep right now! I can’t wait to read it! Pick up a copy of Three To Ride today! I think you’ll be ready to move to Bliss by the time you finish reading the last page!
