Rachel was such a loser. Growing up with Tourette’s Syndrome has taught her that. Who could possibly want someone who contorted their faces in bizarre twitches or snorted at random? Not even Mike, the man who had promised he loved her, had been able to put up with it. She broke up with him when she caught him cheating on her during their great overseas experience, promptly flying back home to hide and lick her wounds.
James was the manager for the 850 acre farm she and her brother Simon had inherited. She liked James. He’d always treated her nicely, like an honorary little sister, and she’d had a crush on him forever. Not that she could ever tell him. She wasn’t going to set herself up for rejection ever again.
But when it seems that someone is out to harm her, can she count on James to come to her rescue?
Set in rural New Zealand, this epic romance will thrill you and keep you captivated, enchant you with charming detail and inspire you, as learning to overcome adversity ultimately is Rachel’s Journey.

It’s My Ranch? by Misty Malone
Jake Hamilton thought he had his hands full when he inherited his grandfather’s ranch at a young age. But he was shocked two years later when he was told he was to inherit his neighbor’s ranch, as well, with one proviso. He was to watch after his neighbor’s 19-year-old daughter, keeping her safe and providing a place for her to live until she married.
Jake didn’t know Loretta that well, but her lack of safety bothered him immensely. The first time he met her she was on his land, doing something so dangerous he instinctively pulled her off her horse and across his knee for a spanking. Neither of them were happy to hear the conditions of her father’s will, but out of respect for him, Jake was determined to do as her father wished.
She fought him every step of the way, until after ignoring his safety rule yet again she finds herself in serious trouble. Now she has to hope he cares enough to go looking for her and can find her in time.
Late Blooming Lily by Bryony Kildare
Forty-three and divorced, Lily Amis has put all her time and energy into building her business as a graphic designer. When her elderly aunt dies, leaving Lily responsible for cleaning out and selling her rural Montana home, it’s just a hitch in Lily’s well-organized life. She’ll be out of Montana in two months. Tops.
That’s what she thinks, anyway, until she meets Rob – the rancher next door. Rob tempts Lily on every level. His casual authority reawakens long buried dreams and desires, and when she discovers he finds the girlish submission in her heart every bit as exciting as she does, the banked fires of her sexuality reawaken to a roaring heat. Although she revels in the strict care and loving tenderness that he offers her, waking up to life forces Lily to face everything she’s left behind. When a fit of artistic inspiration causes Lily to defy both Rob and the orders of her new physician, kind but strict Dr. Mitford, Lily has quite a reckoning to face. Can Rob and Lily’s new love survive the pain that she has suppressed for so long?
