About the author

Cathryn Hein is a best-selling author of rural romance and romantic adventure novels, a Romance Writers of Australia Romantic
Book of the Year finalist, 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.

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 Withdrawn from his family, Digby doesn't care about anything beyond his loss.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?

 She came to the outback to marry the love of her life. She just didn't expect him to be her fiancé's younger brother.

When Meghan Flanagan, a vet-nurse from Townsville, moves to Brigadier Station in outback Queensland to marry the man of her dreams, she is shocked to discover that perhaps her fiancé isn’t the man she wants waiting for her at the altar. The man she's destined to marry, just might be his younger brother.

Cautious of women after a disastrous past relationship, Darcy is happy living on his beloved cattle station, spending his spare time riding horses, going to rodeos and campdrafting. He didn't expect the perfect woman show up on his doorstep. Engaged to his brother.

With the wedding only hours away, Meghan must make the decision of a lifetime. But, her betrayal could tear the family apart. She knows all too well the pain of losing loved ones and being alone.

Now that she has the family she so desperately wants; will she risk losing it all?

Set in the drought stricken plains of Julia Creek, North Queensland and the coastal city of Townsville this is a rural romance that will leave you asking: Will she marry the right man, for the right reasons?

Q&A with the author

What makes The Brothers of Brigadier Station special?

A- It's a story set against the rugged beauty of Outback Queensland. I live in Townsville and have close friends in Julia Creek so I made the characters and locations authentic and charming.

 

What authors inspire you?

I was inspired to write Australian rural romance by some of my favourite authors and friends. Rachael Johns, Mandy Magro, Allissa Callen just to name a few. These are the kinds of books I like to read.

I also love Western romances. Some of my favourite authors include Janet Dailey, Nora Roberts and fellow New Zealander Leeanna Morgan.
