Gavin Miller, the billionaire author of a best-selling thriller series, struggles with a grim secret: he hasn't written a word in more than a year. Writer's block is killing his spirit and jeopardizing his contracts with his publisher and his Hollywood producers. Prodded by his agent, Gavin reluctantly agrees to see Allie Nichols, a sassy physical therapist tasked with treating the novelist's severe neck and shoulder pain - and maybe his writer's block, too.

I just knew Gavin would have the best story! I knew the pain he displayed throughout the series would have the most painful back story. But the love of a good woman will always bring a man back from his torment. I've read all of Nancy Herkness books and can't wait for her next

Family. Responsibility. Stability. As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister, Gabby, is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn't have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him. If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau's loft weren't so damn tempting.

Love This story, so unexpected! For once in the series the couple was not torn apart by a misunderstanding. Maybe because they were older and more mature. And who wouldn't want one more time with a loved one that has past on. Kristin Proby is one of my favorites. When a new story is about to be released, I stay up to down load. Ms Proby is truly a treasure

I love the Sinclairs they are complicated but when there is trouble they rise to the challenge with no questions asked.
I'm looking forward to Evans story the most complicated brother of them all.
He had the most exposure to the horrible father so we should see what twisted the children the most.
We saw some in Gradys story so now that we are closing in on the family this next book will be really something!

We also have Chole from the Billionaires Obsession series arriving November 10 2015. That we give us sometime until the family Sinclair arrives!

Thank you Ms Scott. Can we maybe have a Sinclair Christmas Story sometime soon? Please,please?

What made the experience of listening to Daisies in the Canyon the most enjoyable?

the story about the sisters touched me deeply. I have two sister, we aren't close. I think if we ever had to work through tears,fears and hard work as these three did we could be closer.

What did you like best about this story?

During the storm and the cows rushed the house how they pulled together and show the men in the story that they could get the job done without the big strong men.

Which scene was your favorite?

The big bull sitting on the porch and the moonshine scene. BEEN THERE!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Cooper asked Abby to marry him. The was the most beautiful scene I've ever read. That scene made me cry, if I'm ever ask that question I hope it's as special. Oh there is nothing like a Southern man!!

Any additional comments?

I was saddened to see that there is only two stories in this series. I'm hoping Carolyn Brown will revisit the canyon again in the future
