Summary: It has been five years since Joe Cartwright took Bella Carnaby as his wife and nearly twenty since he first met Rosey O’Rourke – a woman he knows his father loves, but one that life and time has conspired to keep away from the Ponderosa.

Rated PG-13 for western violence and brutality and mild adult language
Author’s Note: This story will make more sense if the reader is familiar with both Wet Bottoms, Warm Heart series (Bella Carnaby) and Blood and Bread (Rosey O’Rourke) series.
