The Landowner's Secret Sonya Heaney Summer of Love Promotion

Read the first two chapters.

New South Wales, 1885

When Alice Ryan wakes to find thugs surrounding her cottage, on the hunt for her no-good brother, she escapes into the surrounding bush.

It is wealthy landowner Robert Farrer who finds her the next morning, dishevelled, injured, and utterly unwilling to share what she knows. With criminals on the loose and rumours that reckless bushrangers have returned to the area, Robert is determined to keep Alice out of danger, and insists on taking her into his home-despite the scandal it may cause. Convincing her to stay on with him for her own safety, however, is going to take some work.

What Robert doesn’t expect is his growing attraction to the forthright, unruly woman staying in his home. Before either of them can settle into their odd new situation, their home and wellbeing come under threat and they will need to trust each other to survive. But they are both keeping secrets, secrets that have the potential to ruin their burgeoning love, their livelihood … and their lives.

Rereading Favourites

Books HD

I’ve been noticing something for a while now, and I get the impression I’m not the only one who does this:

When I reread, so often the titles I pick up I rated three or four stars on Goodreads, rather than the best-written books I’ve read.

Maybe I didn’t particularly love the main characters, but I loved the angst-filled storyline. Or maybe some of the dialogue is so smart or so funny, but the plot is a mess. Or maybe there’re a couple of scenes I love to pieces, even if the rest of the book fell short.

It’s across every genre: romance, and not romance. Historical fiction, paranormal and urban fantasy, suspense, contemporaries.

I wish I could remember where, but a while ago I read an article that said there’s such thing as a “five star book”, and such thing as a “great read”, and that they often don’t match up.

Luckily, they often DO. I have a favourites shelf on Goodreads with over a hundred books on it.

However, sometimes an author can write a book I otherwise dislike, but I just keep on picking it back up to reread because they’ve captured something like nobody else has managed to.

Weird.

Book Feature: Her Outback Surprise by Annie Seaton

Note: I am featuring some of the review books I’ve had for a while, but run out of time to do a review for. That’s not to say I’m not going to read them; it’s just that I’ve fallen behind, and think the authors deserve an appearance here!

Her Outback Surprise by Annie Seaton

Angie Edmonds is content with life in her small town. Being alone doesn’t bother her. Really. Until Liam Smythe, the man who broke her heart, shows up at her vet clinic with an injured puppy. Unfortunately, he’s just as irresistible as she remembers. In an attempt to prove to him that she’s moved on, somehow a little white lie begins…

When Liam returns to help run the family farm, his enjoyment of the slow life in Spring Downs surprises him. After all, he’s used to the thrill of chasing the next big story. Running into the girl he’s never been able to forget is unexpected, and he’s shocked to learn she’s getting married–to someone who’s not him. She’s off-limits, but Liam can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous vet and what could have been. But convincing her he’s changed will be harder than finding a needle in a haystack.

As much cover information as I can share at the moment!

The first lesson any author learns about publishing is that you’ll go weeks without hearing from anyone – and then you’ll hear from everyone at once.

It’s been a busy twenty-four hours, with a tentative title for my next book decided on (I’ll share it when I know for certain what it is), and the information for my cover designer submitted.

So, I thought I’d share a few pieces of information about the next book:

 

  • It will be out in March 2020.

  • You haven’t met the hero yet.

 

  • The story begins in September of 1887, which is two years after the first book ended.

 

  • There is more engagement with the Indigenous community than in book one.

 

I actually didn’t set out to write a trilogy. However, after I got working on the first one I realised there were other characters whose stories were unfinished. “Second Book Syndrome” is a term in the publishing world to imply the second one is the hardest. I’ll see how I go!
