New Release ~ Jewel of the Kimberley by Erin Moira O’Hara

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00075]

This is the exciting and action packed book 3 in HRW member Erin Moira O’Hara’s Steele Ops series.


Nick Flanagan had two passions—his fiancée, Ava, and flying Black Hawks. Then he was accepted into a special unit within the SAS, it was a dream come true. That dream cost him Ava. In the four years since, he’s lived hard and fast. Now, having discovered a treacherous lie, Nick wants Ava back. First though, he must contend with a rival, who has an agenda of his own.

Ava Mitchell’s parents had been cool and distant her whole life, so when she fell for fun loving Nick Flanagan, he became her world. After three wonderful years together, Nick joined the SAS and cancelled their wedding. Devastated, Ava walked out, hoping he’d resign and come after her. Several weeks later her biggest fear became a reality when she received word he’d been killed.

Now a successful designer, Ava is about to risk her heart again when the unimaginable happens—Nick walks back into her life. Can she trust the man she once adored, or will he and a band of smugglers destroy her life? To survive she will need a miracle or perhaps a team of heroic commandos.

New Release ~ Joanie’s Dilemma by Marianne Theresa


This is book twelve in the Bindarra Creek series by HRW member Marianne Theresa. Congratulations Mary.

When you leave the future to fate–anything can happen! 
As far as small town gossip goes, Joanie believes she’s crossed the line. Working out how to pay back her late husband’s gambling debts didn’t include sleeping with her best friend’s cousin on the night of the funeral.
Nash Johnson isn’t the marrying kind, so when he does offer marriage after their one night together, Joanie is suspicious and wants no part in alleviating the man’s guilt. She has to move on with her life and look to the future.
But when a new woman arrives in town, she sets more than a cat among the pigeons. For Joanie, trust takes on a new meaning, but who can she depend on when she feels those close to her have let her down. Can she trust her best friend, can she trust the man who says he loves her?
Then just when she thinks the future is full of promise a surprising complication arises, and nothing prepares her for the life changing consequence she never saw coming.

Joanie’s Dilemma takes place in a small rural/country town in outback Australia. Like many tiny towns, Bindarra Creek is a town on the verge of becoming obsolete, until the government offers a scheme to enrich the township’s coffers, and bring new life back into it’s dying soul.

With the help of 13 authors, this is exactly what this little town need. Love life and romance is once more alive and well in Bindarra Creek.

Belated New Release ~ Return to Jacaranda Avenue by Kerrie Paterson


Let me say a very big heartfelt sorry to Kerrie for not putting this up soon. No sure where my head was by it definitely wasn’t paying attention to new releases.

So if you get the chance get out and have a look at this wonderful novel

A pastry chef returns to her roots and discovers that the flavour of first love improves with age.

Twenty-five years ago, Polly and Matt were in love—but their relationship came to a traumatic end following the death of her best friend.

Now Polly Chappell has moved back to her home town to open a patisserie and care for her elderly parents, and the last person she wants to see is Matt Enright. Until she actually sees him, that is…

Their attraction turns out to be stronger than ever, but both have their reasons to resist rekindling their romance—until someone attempts to run Polly out of town with escalating threats and vandalism, and Matt’s protective instincts surface.

Will the secret she keeps bring them together—or get them killed?
