After a decade of travel and living out of a suitcase, Emmalynne Peters is fed up with the world of modeling.
Her heart calls her in another direction and she finds herself in the town of Longreach, Queensland. A land baked dry under relentless summer suns, washed away in raging floods, and burned to a crisp by savage fires.
Where men were bred tough, had work roughened hands and big hearts – men like Nick Johnson.
So, on March 3rd, she packed her bags for the last time and walked away – straight into the Australian outback, a place where she’d always thought she belonged.
Has Emmalynne not only found the land she’d been pining for, but also the love of her life? Would the month of March turn out to be one she would never forget?
Come and discover the rugged outback and the people who give it beauty and life.

 

 

 

My name is Susan Horsnell and I write sweet and spicy Western Romance.
You’ll find Mail Order Brides, a Mail Order Governess and even a Mail Order Ranger just to include the males of the species.
There are knock ’em down, drag ’em out fights, gruesome murders and a gun toting, cussing, female saloon owner. I also have two books which explore how a blind child would cope on a ranch in the days of the Wild West.
In every book there is a beautiful heroine and a dashingly handsome hero. Sometimes their happy endings seem unlikely but they do eventually get there.
I hope you enjoy exploring my books and look forward to hearing from you.

A Stranger’s Arms

CHERYL WRIGHT

I am a multi award-winning Australian author who spent thirteen years contracted by traditional publishers. At the beginning of 2017, I decided it was time to self-publish.

This has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, and to write books I want to write, and believe my readers would like to read.

I write mostly western romance these days.

I’ve taught writing for many years, and have written several non-fiction books about writing. I’ve worked as an editor for publishers, coached writers one-on-one, and have appeared at writer’s conferences in Australia and New Zealand.

I have been married to my own real-life hero for 42 years. We have two grown children, and six grandchildren.

Our household would not be complete without our wonderful pets, which includes two elderly cats and our beautiful dog Bindy, who loves long, leisurely walks. We are also fostering a puppy, who will ultimately go to an Autism school.

My hobbies are tenpin bowling and papercrafts, and surprisingly, going to the gym.

BOOK SUMMARY

He can seduce with a single glance.

Peering down at a sea of fans, rock star Mitchell Davies can’t deny the innocent beauty of a woman in the front row. He’ll stop at nothing to get to know her. When a public altercation leaves her weak and defenseless, he takes the opportunity to be her savior.

She’s been sheltered from the world.

Alana Shelton wants to spread her wings and experience life away from her restrictive upbringing. But she isn’t prepared for a gorgeous stranger to sweep her off her feet while at her most vulnerable.

Attraction will bring them together, but their pasts will try to tear them apart.

He wants to teach her how to trust, but she’ll show him how to love.

In a glamorous world of rock-and-roll, only time will tell if they’re up for the challenge.

BLURB

Hot. Strong. No sugar. Raw sexual emotion, revenge and redemption. If you want a sugar-coated romance Savage Possession is not for you. In colonial Australia it took hard men like Martin Mulvaney to tame a harsh land.

A sweeping tale of love’s triumph over tragedy and treachery in frontier Australia.

A mistaken identity opens the door for Martin Mulvaney to take his revenge on the granddaughter of his mortal enemy.

An old Scottish feud, a love that should never have happened, and a series of extraordinary coincidences trap two lovers in a family vendetta that threatens to destroy their love, if not their lives.

EXCERPT

Chapter One

Australia – North Eastern Victoria 1870’s.

Alistair was in trouble. With the powerful bond she shared with her twin, fear coursed through Beth’s body. She drew in a shuddering breath and tried to still her trembling hands by twisting an escaped tendril of hair from her plait. How many warnings did her brother need before he stopped consorting with outlaws?

Standing in the doorway of their split log cabin, she squinted into the distance. A lone horseman flashed into her line of vision. With a hammering heart, she waited. Was it friend or foe? Should she dash inside and grab grandfather’s gun?

The rider drew near. It was Alistair. Running to the track snaking along the side paddock, she struggled to lower the slip rails so the horse could pass through.

“Quick, Beth!” He leapt from the saddle. “Get the mare out of sight.”

“What happened?” Dread clawed at her throat with cruel fingers. Her stomach knotted up. What had her brother been up to now?

Without a word, he dashed off.

Her hand trembled as she picked up the trailing rein and led the sweating, foam-flecked mare into the barn. Something terrible must have happened. One of their best horses ridden to the point of exhaustion. She unsaddled the mare and turned her loose before sprinting back to their cabin.

Rushing to the kitchen, she found Alistair stuffing a sack with bags of flour, salt and sugar.

Frantically, she grabbed his arm. “What’s wrong?”

Pale and agitated, he stared out the window. “I have to get out of here. The mounted police are after me.”

“The police? You’re in trouble with the law?”

After he filled the sack, he dropped it on the floor and paced up and down, banging a fist against his open hand.

MARK TO HER HEART

51cgtedbq4l

BLURB

When Maxine’s not working as a disability carer, she’s at an AFL game. The sport she has grown up loving. One night after a game, she meets one of AFL’s most eligible bachelors—captain of the Blues. The tall, dark haired, grey eyed god is the sort of man she would usually stay far away from. But when he leads her out on the dance floor, she finds that’s the one thing she can’t do.
He’s funny and charming. A dangerous mix. A mix Maxine can’t risk her heart on. After a night of passion unlike any she has ever known, Maxine runs. She hopes she can put it all behind her as a one-time event, but fate has other ideas in store. No matter how much you try you can’t run from some things.

Mark has spent his whole life trying to be the best he can be and live up to his father’s expectations. Now he’s finally at the top of his game; if only his team could just win then maybe his father would be proud. But with power and leadership comes other things: groupies—those fake, power and money hungry women who would do anything to get their claws in a top player like himself.
When he was younger he was happy to take what they so willingly gave but now he’s over it all. He wants something real. Like he feels for Maxine. One glance at the woman has his body burning up. And now he’s found her, he plans on keeping her. Well, that was ‘til she slipped out of his apartment as he slept.
With only a first name to go on, Mark holds little hope of ever seeing the beautiful Maxine again. But maybe, just maybe, fate might help a man out.
Finding her might be the easy part but keeping her may just be harder than marking the ball.

MY REVIEW

Mark to her Heart is a good 5* read.

The story is set around an AFL club in Victoria and Mark is the worshipped Captain. Worshipped by everyone but his father. He plays the game only for his dad. He’s tired of the Groupies, the Hanger Ons, the proverbial Pains in the Asses.

Maxine is a woman who cares for the disabled and loves her AFL and beloved Bulldogs. She’s a long way from being a Groupie and doesn’t set out to get herself noticed. But, noticed she is and Mark isn’t about to give up on the girl who tries hard to do a runner out of his life.

I know Ashlea, she is passionate about her football and the Bulldogs. It is very obvious this book has been written with both passion and knowledge. Loved it.
