Contemporary Romance

Bourke, a small country town in outback Australia, home to the mighty Darling River.

Where skies are bluer than blue, flies and Mozzies abound and wide open spaces and fresh country air regenerate the spirit.

It was this small town her heart led her back to after fifteen long years away. The place where Ruby’s heart had always belonged.

Securing a position with the Flying Doctor Service and working for a local doctor was like a dream come true – she was ready to give back to the people who had done so much to help her.

Her own home, jobs she loved, a family and friends she adored. Life was good, until…..

Phil was a man who had grown up with Ruby and he’d had his eye on her for years.

He’d intended to marry her as soon as he had qualified as a cop and she had qualified as a nurse.

So, what caused everything to go so horribly wrong?

Will a disaster bring them together?

Or will they forever be separated by mistakes from the past?

Title: March
Series: Calendar Cals Series
Author: Susan Horsnell
Genre: Australian Rural Romance
Release Date: May 12, 2019


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.




Hi Everyone

Sorry I have been out of the loop for a bit.

There was a family emergency, and due to her sudden illness and need for nursing home placement, I needed to pack up her home ready for sale.

In the meantime – I have two new releases in May.

The first is called Eight Letters and releases on May 1. It is set in and around Sydney NSW Australia.

Links will be posted when live so keep an eye out.

“Caitlin, get your fat arse out here now and take your brother out of my sight before I knock him into next week!”

I scrambled from beneath the threadbare blanket, paying no attention when my back screamed in pain, protesting at sleeping on the cold concrete floor.

We were living in an abandoned unit block in Pyrmont, not far from the fish markets and within walking distance to my brother’s school and the supermarket I worked at. It had been almost a year since we’d relocated after being evicted from a run-down house about a kilometre down the road. We’d been in that one for almost six months before the landlord got tired of mum not paying the rent. It was the story of my life. I can’t recall ever being in one place for more than twelve months, so the fact a year was fast approaching in our current home made me nervous. I’d also lost count of the number of schools I’d attended.

…..I was on my patch of land now and stopped to peruse the area.
A thunderous noise pierced the previous quiet and I spun to my left to see a huge gray and white bull headed straight for me. He was closing the distance between us much too fast for my liking. I stayed where I was, hoping he would swerve and not barrel straight through me.
I guessed it was Nero, the big pussycat as mum had called him. He didn’t appear to be slowing as he cleared the bridge and continued straight for me. City girl here – I had no idea what I should do. So, I held up one hand and shouted, “Whoa,” as loud as I could.
He tossed his head and backed off on the speed. By the time he was close enough to touch, he had slowed to a walk and stopped.
I reached up and patted him. “You must be Nero.”
The huge bull snorted and I reached out to scratch behind his ears. He obviously liked it because he began leaning into my touch, ensuring I continued.
“Like that, huh?”
When the sound of an engine echoed from the distance, I peered around the bull to see a quad bike headed my way.
It came to a stop nearby and holy hell, the man who stepped off it was the epitome of tall, dark and sexy. Very, very sexy.
He stomped towards us, an angry expression on his handsome face.
“God damn it, Nero. That’s it, I’m sending you to the fucking sale yards. Someone can make dog meat out of you for all I care. I’m sick and tired of having to chase after you.”
I stepped around the side of the poor animal who was being threatened with being turned into dog meat.
I held out my hand. “Hi, I’m Emmalynne.”…….
