Outback Dreams, Rachael Johns , 2013 single work novel

'Faith and Monty are both looking for love...but they’re looking in the wrong direction. Faith Forrester is at a crossroads. Single, thirty and living on a farm in a small Western Australian town, she’s sick of being treated like a kitchen slave by her brother and father. Ten years ago, her mother died of breast cancer, and Faith has been treading water ever since. She wants to get her hands dirty on the family farm. She wants to prove to herself that she’s done something worthwhile with her life. And she wants to find a man...

'For as long as he can remember, Daniel ‘Monty’ Montgomery has been Faith’s best friend. When he was ten, his parents sold the family property and moved to Perth, and ever since, Monty’s dreamed of having his own farm. So for the last ten years, he’s been back on the land, working odd jobs and saving every dollar to put toward his dream. Now he finally has the deposit. But there’s still something missing...

'So when Faith embarks on a mission to raise money for a charity close to her heart, and Monty’s dream property comes on the market, things seem like they are falling into place for them both. Until a drunken night out ends with them sleeping together. Suddenly, the best friends are faced with a new load of challenges...

'Monty and Faith are both ready to find a life partner and settle down, but have they both been looking in all the wrong places? ' (Publisher's blurb)

Driftwood, Mandy Magro , 2013 single work novel romance

'To Taylor Whitworth, knowing that she’ll never meet her biological father is devastating. All she knows is he was a stockman and she yearns to be like him … to become a jillaroo. So she hits the road, destination unknown, until she happens upon the town of Driftwood.

Life-burdened Jay Cooper is a cowboy, his passion for the outback and his bad boy image inherited from his forefathers. The whole town whispers about him, but Jay doesn’t care – that is, until his rough and tumble lifestyle is stopped dead in its tracks when he happens across Taylor on a deserted country road.

'Soon their mutual love of horses begins a wonderful friendship that develops when Jay offers Taylor a job as a jillaroo on his cattle station.' (Publisher's blurb)

The House on Burra Burra Lane, Jennie Jones , 2013 single work novel romance

'Just ten days after her fresh start in the isolated Snowy Mountains, Samantha Walker trips over a three hundred pound pig and lands in the arms of Dr. Ethan Granger — and the firing line for gossip. It was hardly a ‘date’ but sparks of the sensual kind are difficult to smother in a community of only 87 people. Now there’s a bet running on how long she’ll stay and what she’ll get up to while she’s in town.

'Ethan has his own issues — Sammy’s presence in his childhood home brings with it painful recollections of family scandals and a bad boy youth. When the gossip around them heightens, his life is suddenly a deck of cards spread on the table for all to see. Then Sammy's past catches up with her... and it looks like all bets are off.'
