First novel in the Huntington series
Fourth-grade school teacher Amanda Huntington said good-bye to her high school sweetheart when she realized he had fallen in love with someone else. Now, a year later, she wonders if she'll spend the rest of her life alone.
When she meets Blake Simmons, Amanda finds her life turned upside down. Blake doesn't seem like the knight in shinning armor she always imagined. With two adorable children in his care, he is locked in an ugly battle of wills with their troubled mother and worries that the children he has come to love will be lost for him forever.
Will Amanda's relationship with Blake and the children only cause her more heartache? Or does she need him just as much as he needs her?
What Others Are Saying
"Sweet scenes, good characterizations . . . Nunes explores important issued of family, addiction, and true love . . ."
I just wanted you to know I got your book Winter Fire and loved it so much! I just couldn't put it down! I look forward to the rest of the series. Your talent is appreciated so much!
Rachel Ann Nunes always delivers a solid, enjoyable read with characters the reader can identify with. My favorite part was the way she accurately dealt with the tangled foster care situation and the confused emotions the children had to deal with. Like Rachel, I've been a foster parent. It's rewarding, but puts a person's emotions through the wringer. The only thing worse is to imagine children growing up who are never loved, even briefly. Definitely worth reading.

that will follow the Huntington siblings, Amanda, Mitch, Tyler, and Kerrianne. In all the books, young
children are in some way responsible for getting the main characters together. Savannah (Savvy) Hergarter,
a character from many of my other books, will also be in these novels (she's growing up!).
This is the first book I've published with Deseret Book. I love working with them!
