While growing up, Louise Bergin was the girl with her head buried in a book. She wanted to live the adventures she found between the covers—especially the promise of happily ever after at the end. In college, she learned to fence in case some day she wrote a historical novel. She also studied accounting as her back-up career. When her hero appeared, he was an Air Force officer, with whom she had three children and the life she’d longed for. She finds the time to write because the military movers taught her that you really only have to clean your house once every three years.

Can two reluctant hearts work together to create a winning season?
