Fourth and Long

A cowboy contractor, his ex-wife, and the son he never knew he had…

In this heartwarming tale of love, loss, and redemption, Kate Donnely is forced to face the consequences of her past actions. After keeping her son Reid's existence a secret from his father, Brett Murphy, for seven years, she embarks on a journey to reunite them.

Driving down a dusty road to Three Rivers Ranch, where Brett is rumored to be working, Kate's emotions threaten to overpower her as she struggles to find the courage to tell Brett the truth.

Upon arriving at the ranch, Kate finally comes face-to-face with Brett, the man she had married just before his deployment to Afghanistan. He thought they were divorced.

He was wrong.

As she introduces him to Reid, their vibrant seven-year-old son, she is met with anger and disbelief. Despite his initial shock, Brett refuses to let Kate take their son away, insisting that Reid deserves to have a father in his life.

He convinces Kate to stay in Three Rivers for the summer so they can have a second chance at building the family he didn’t know he had. He still loves her, and he adores being a father—but he has to find a way toward forgiveness.

Oh, and he’s still active in the Army and could be called up at any time.

Will their love be enough to heal the wounds they've inflicted on one another? Or will they allow the bitterness of their past to tear their family apart forever?

This gripping romance is a testament to the power of forgiveness and the unbreakable bond between a parent and child.

Dive into this emotional journey of love and rediscovery that will leave you yearning for a love as resilient as Kate and Brett's.
