Dear Inga, I'm thinking it is not good for my baby and me to stay much longer in Whistle Creek, Idaho. The sheriff is showing altogether too much interest. I suppose I should feel flattered, for Carson Barclay is not only strikingly handsome, but a man of character and faith who has shown Keary and me considerable kindness. But I'm afraid his affections are ones I cannot return. The secret I bear makes a future with him impossible. Yet Inga, when Sheriff Barclay is near, it's everything in my Irish heart that wishes otherwise. Your friend, Mary Emeline. Malone Idaho: mountainous, rugged. Men go there to find their fortunes in the silver mines - and lose their pasts. But, as Mary Malone discovers, sometimes the past is not so easily shaken. It will take a good man's strong, persistent love to penetrate the young immigrant's defenses and disarm the secret that makes a hostage of her heart. "In His Arms" is book three in the "Coming to America" series about women who come to America to start new lives.

Robin Lee Hatcher (www.robinleehatcher.com) discovered her vocation as a novelist after many years of reading everything she could put her hands on, including the backs of cereal boxes and ketchup bottles. However, she's certain there are better plots and fewer calories in her books than in puffed rice and hamburgers. The winner of the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction, two RITA Awards for Best Inspirational Romance, and the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award, Robin is the author of over 45 novels, including Catching Katie, named one of the Best Books of 2004 by the Library Journal. She enjoys the beautiful Idaho outdoors, books that make her cry, and romantic movies. She is passionate about the theater, and several nights every summer, she can be found at the outdoor amphitheater of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, enjoying Shakespeare under the stars. Robin admits she is spoiled because her daughters and their families live in Boise, so she is able to be a doting mom and grandmother whenever she wishes.
