Once for All Time

March 23, 2015

Twice a week for the last three years, nurse Clotilde Collins has worked with the handsome Doctor James Thackery at St Alma’s Hospital, but she’d never dream that he was actually interested in her! Besides, she’s been dating a young surgeon, Bruce Johnson, for some time now, and as soon as he finds the right practice to buy into (he’s very fussy about that; he wants into Sir Oswald’s practice, not some penny ante bunch), her father will give them the money for him to do so, they’ll be wed, and happily ever after, right?

The Moonshiner

March 18, 2015

Joan Yelland is just sick of it, okay? She’s sick and tired of being the wealthy socialite her mother has raised her up to be. She’s just got to get away for a while, okay? Just a break, really. So she flies from the social whirl of Sydney to her godmother’s home on a cattle station in the north of Australia. Landing in a DC-3, on a dirt strip in the middle of nowhere, the well-turned-out beauty starts an adventure she’ll never forget! On the two-day trek to her godmother’s home, in the company of their cantankerous niece Shelley, she fords a flooded river on horseback, and camps out in the bush overnight, hearing the didgeridoos off in the darkness, and meeting one of the reclusive “moonshiners” when she takes a short walk away from camp in the evening. Arriving at Lantana Station just as a cyclone hits, the adventure is just beginning!

March 09, 2015

Cole Sawyer, Army Ranger, has just returned from a devastating tour of duty in Afghanistan.  He blames himself for the death of a group of soldiers, because the suicide bomber that he didn’t shoot was a woman; he hesitated a beat, and that was all it took.  He reacts on instinct the day he sees a bank robbery start to unfold, but moments later, the real robbers escape, with Lisa Meador’s toddler son! Frantic to save her child, she and Cole engage in a pursuit that will cross Texas.
