He’s got a history of bad decisions—is he finally about to make the right one?
Jesse Hargreaves can’t outrun his notorious bad boy reputation. Betrayed by a woman he trusted, he retreats to his hometown, Wirralong, to serve as his brother’s best man and rebuild his life. But change isn’t easy, and it’s even harder when Jesse has to fight his fierce attraction to the maid of honor—a woman well aware of the darkness in his past.
Beautician Serenity Strachan’s flippant one-liners and vibrant hair colors are armor to protect her fragile heart. She’s always crushed on Jesse, but she’s determined to keep him and his sordid past at an arm’s length. That’s easier said than done when Jesse asks Serenity to help renovate an old property. And when they’re trapped underground in a tunnel cave-in, their emotional barriers fall faster than the tunnel walls.
When the rescue arrives, they question their new emotional intimacy. Can Serenity trust this new Jesse with her heart? And can Jesse trust that Serenity will ignore the lure of a fortune to keep his secrets safe?
Titles in the Outback Brides Return to Wirralong multi-author series include — Matilda Next Door by Kelly Hunter – Maeve’s Baby by Fiona McArthur – Serenity’s Song by Cathryn Hein – A Nanny Called Alice by Barbara Hannay
The Can You Read A Series In A Month? Challenge is back for September! This Challenge is going to help me achieve at least one of my ‘New Year’s’ group of Challenges I accepted for 2020. If you’d like to join in on the fun the link to the information page at Berls’ and Michelle’s Because Reading is Better than Real Life website is in the graphic over <– there and in the written link above.
I’m going to complete Kristen Ashley’s ‘The Three‘ Paranormal series, the titles include “Until The Sun Falls From The Sky” – “With Everything I Am” – “Wild and Free”. I’ve devoured Ms. Ashley’s Dream Man, Rock Chicks, and Chaos series, and re-read them often… but I haven’t branched out, although I’ve intended to. (given that these three titles have been on my Kindle for over a year -yeah, intentions are good, follow-up bad)
It’s been a crazy decade this year, hasn’t it? 2020 certainly kicked butt and took names for me, and I’m pretty certain for many, many more people around the globe. Quarantine has been odd, in the sense that I really thought I’d get more reading done – truth is, I haven’t. Not the ‘get the TBR tower of doom under control’ level of reading I was hoping for. And it’s now officially September 2020, so that project will probably pass over into 2021.
I’m going to finish at least one series (actually, it’s a trilogy) that’s been sitting on my Kindle for a while now. Surely I can finish a dedicated trilogy in one month. As crazy as it may seem, I’ve actually begun to put my pure personal enjoyment reading in my daily planner – ARCs get priority, real-life needs to be dealt with, but the ‘for me’ reading has dropped… so I’m going to take it back for at least this one event.
