April's Rainbow

Cathryn Hein
Free sample

From the spectacular beauty of Victoria's lush western districts comes this deeply emotional story of grief, courage and love.

When shy farmer Tristan Blake is given free rein to manage iconic local property Rainbow, he soon finds himself living his dream. Even more so once the farm's dark-haired artist owner April Tremayne arrives. April is mysterious and slightly wild, with an air of tragedy, and Tristan is captivated. The more involved he becomes with April and her eccentric projects, the harder he falls for her. April might believe the price of love is pain, but Tristan vows that is one thing she'll never experience with him.

But even the sweetest dream can turn dark. April is haunted by the very heartbreak she'd come to Rainbow to heal, and as her demons tighten their grip, Tristan is torn between keeping his promise or betraying the woman he loves. And the risk of either choice is losing her forever.

Praise for April's Rainbow

"April's Rainbow is a really beautiful story exploring terrible grief but from a very interesting perspective which sets it apart. It's heartbreak and love, despair and fragile hope that packs an emotional punch that will stay with you." 1Girl2ManyBooks

"...April's Rainbow is a tender and emotional love story, and definitely one where you may just need tissues on standby." My Written Romance

"Twists in the story and emotions that tug on the heart. A read that is heartfelt one moment, comical a time or two and enjoyable reading throughout." Talking Books Blog

About the author

Cathryn Hein is the best-selling author of twelve rural romance and romantic adventure novels, a Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year finalist with Santa and the Saddler, and a regular Australian Romance Reader Awards finalist.

A South Australian country girl by birth, Cathryn loves nothing more than a rugged rural hero who’s as good with his heart as he is with his hands, which is probably why she writes them! Her romances are warm and emotional, and feature themes that don’t flinch from the tougher side of life but are often happily tempered by the antics of naughty animals. Her aim is to make you smile, sigh, and perhaps sniffle a little, but most of all feel wonderful.

Cathryn lives in Newcastle, Australia with her partner of many years, Jim. When she’s not writing, she plays golf (ineptly), cooks (well), and in football season barracks (rowdily) for her beloved Sydney Swans AFL team.

When runaway bride, Sadie Archer’s car breaks down on the outskirts of Mule Hollow, Texas, she’s not exactly dressed to fix the blown tire. Then again, she hadn’t planned on this road trip or her life falling apart a week before her wedding. But now that she’s hit the road, destination unknown, Sadie’s decided it’s time to disappear for a while and find out exactly what it is she wants out of life. But first she needs to change her flat tire and that is easier said than done when one is wearing…

A bunny suit!

Ex-cowboy star Rafe Masterson thinks he’s seeing things at first but yes—that is definitely a female head sticking out of the furry white bunny suit, tangling with a spare tire. A cowboy who guards his heart carefully, he’s still always willing to help someone in need…even one wearing white fur from top to bottom. Completely captivated by the unusual woman, Rafe senses she’s in trouble in more ways than the flat tire. He’s part owner of the New Horizon Ranch and offers her a job as cook—even though they don’t need a cook.

Sadie accepts even though she can’t really cook but this is the perfect answer to her needs right now…and how hard can it be anyway?

These two might be down-on-love but love hasn’t given up on them and the Matchmaking Posse of Mule Hollow has just gotten them in their sights...

Single males in need of a bride for a day? This is strictly an at your service business proposition. . . Do you need the eyes of a woman to help plan and/or set up an event with your personal interest and taste in mind, but with an added touch of your bride—if you had one—then call Bride for Hire and let me do the work…
 
Jilted twice Bella Reese has no plans to find out if three’s the magic number. She’s done with men. But she’s always loved the idea of being a bride, setting up house, planning parties making sure things are pretty and homey-the perfect nest for a home…and she’s determined not to give up on that dream. Six months after her final wedding fiasco she’s turned a new leaf and opened her business, Bride For Hire. So far she’s been amazingly busy with corporate events with no “homey” entering the equation. Until now…

After being jilted by his ex, Rancher Carson Anderson will never make the marriage mistake again. But now his daughter is turning four and he wants to make her fourth birthday special and redecorate his ranch house to make it more “homey” for a growing little girl. The irony of his situation is he lives on the outskirts of Bride Texas the legendary home of the jilted bride…a small town south of Fort Worth.

When his cousin Cooper Presley shows him the ad from a Fort Worth newspaper it’s everything he’s looking for—even the plainly stated—absolutely no romance involved. Carson makes the call.

It sounds like the perfect plan until he meets Bella.

Can you ever really leave the past behind? Australian author, Cathryn Hein returns with a heartfelt romance about loss and new beginnings.

A compelling rural romance, with a healthy sprinkling of suspense and family drama.

Jasmine Thomas should feel safe in her cosy cottage at Admella Beach after finally putting an end to an ill–advised romance. But her perfect sanctuary is shattered with the arrival of hand–delivered threatening notes. Someone has discovered her secret.

When the notes escalate to vandalism, Jasmine's anxiety rises. But in such a small place, telling the police would mean the whole town finding out.

Digby Wallace–Jones is stumbling through the motions of life, wrapped in a fog of grief since his fiancée Felicity died. Withdrawn from his family, Digby doesn't care about anything beyond his loss. But in a chance meeting with Jasmine, his sister's best friend who he's known forever, even he can see the tension she carries. Worried and feeling protective, he continues to drop by, but it's more than that. Jasmine soothes him; and, unlike the rest of his family, he can talk to her about his pain without fear of judgement. But as much as he likes Jasmine, Digby's enduring love for Felicity means he has nothing left to give and he pushes Jasmine away.

Jasmine knew they were supposed to stay friends 'with excellent benefits' but she can't help her wayward heart from falling for this tortured, kind and sexy man. How can she ever loosen the grip Felicity's memory has on Digby's soul and remind him he still has a life ahead of him?
