Debbie Macomber's special warmth and heart shine in this classic novel of letting love find its way home.
After watching the man she loves walk down the aisle with her sister, Cathy Thompson needs to get away. Alaska—beautiful, remote, and far from bitter memories—sounds like the perfect place to start over. But a brand-new life comes with brand-new challenges . . . namely Grady Jones, a pilot and single dad who has a solution to both their problems: a marriage of convenience.

Grady isn't looking for love. He tried that once and failed. He just needs a wife, and Cathy is smart, easy on the eyes, and adored by his daughter. But Grady doesn't count on the way Cathy gets under his skin, the way she makes him want to be a better husband and father. Grady didn't think he had any more love inside to give, but Cathy proves him wrong. With his wife by his side, this pilot learns to soar on the wings of a future neither of them dreamed possible.
BONUS: This edition includes excerpts from Debbie Macomber's Last One Home and The Inn at Rose Harbor.

Excerpts-
  • From the book Chapter One

    Cathy Thompson's long nails beat an impatient tempo against the Formica countertop as she waited.

    "Yes, I'll hold," she said, and breathed heavily into the telephone receiver. Her deep gray eyes clashed with Linda Ericson's, who sat at the table, a large newspaper spread over the top.

    "Any luck?" Linda whispered.

    A voice at the other end of the line interrupted Cathy's response, and she straightened, her fingers tightening around the phone. "This is Cathy Thompson again." The inflection of her voice conveyed the irritation. "Would it be possible to speak to Grady Jones?"

    "Grady's in the air," a gruff male voice informed her. "Be with you in a minute, Harry," he said to someone who was obviously waiting in his office.

    "When do you expect him back?" Cathy asked in her most businesslike voice.

    A lengthy pause followed, and Cathy could hear the rustle of paper in the background. "Thursday afternoon. Will you hold the line a minute?"

    Cathy's sigh was full of exasperation. Cradling the telephone receiver against her shoulder with the side of her head, she pulled out a piece of paper and a pencil. As she looked up she happened to catch a glimpse of the school play yard. The sights and sounds of the last recess of the day drifted in through the open window. Her gray eyes softened as she unconsciously sought Angela Jones. A frown creased her narrow forehead as she discovered the pigtailed first-grader leaning against the play shed, watching the other girls jump rope. Angela always seemed to be on the outside looking in.

    "Do you want to leave a message?" The harried male voice came back on the phone.

    "I've already left four," Cathy snapped.

    "Listen, all I do is take the message. If Grady doesn't return your call, it's not my fault." He hesitated. "Are you the gal from the school again?"

    "Yes, I'm the gal from the school again." She echoed his words, doing her best to disguise her frustration.

    "All I can tell you is that Grady is flying on assignment. I'll tell him you phoned."

    The man wasn't to blame if Grady Jones didn't wish to speak to her, and Cathy's reply was less agitated. "Please do that." Gently, she replaced the receiver in its cradle.

    "Well?" Linda looked up expectantly.

    "No luck. It's the same as before. They'll take a message, but he won't be back until Thursday afternoon."

    "What are you going to do?" Linda asked, concern knitting her brow.

    Cathy shrugged. "Maybe it's time I personally introduced myself to the elusive Grady Jones. He'll have a hard time not talking to me if I show up at the airfield." Cathy had done her research well. The school information card had been sketchy. The card listed the father's occupation as pilot, employed by Alaska Cargo Company. No business phone number had been given, and when Cathy looked it up in the yellow pages she found a large commercial ad. The fine print at the bottom of the advertisement stated that Grady Jones was the company owner. The information card had stated that Angela had no mother. Cathy had found the comment an interesting one. How could any child not have a mother? It could be that Angela's parents were divorced. What Cathy couldn't understand was how someone as unconcerned and uncaring as Grady Jones could have been awarded custody of the child. Cathy had tried on several occasions to contact him at home, but the only adult she had ever reached was a housekeeper, who promised to give him a message. Cathy had stopped counting the times she'd left messages for him.

    "After all the trouble you've gone through, I'd say that's about the only way you're going to get his...
