Revisit Swallow's Fall in this beautiful short novel from Jennie Jones about an ex-military man, a single mother and the impossibility of dreams coming true.

Fatalistic, long divorced and doing her best to give her children a good life, Lily works two jobs in her hometown of Swallow's Fall, saving every spare cent for the day she can lease the empty corner shop on Main Street. She longs to open it as Turnaround Treasures, a second-hand shop bursting with rescued country curios—but there aren't enough spare cents and Lily's dream is slipping away.

Ex-Navy diver Nick Barton arrived in Swallow's Fall a year ago to quietly reunite himself with civvy life. Recognising an instant attraction to Lily, Nick backed away fast. Given his track record of an unhappy ex-wife and the baggage that comes with a Special Forces career, Nick doesn't think he stands a chance with shy, reserved Lily. He can't be with her – but that doesn't mean he doesn't see her.

Lily has spent her whole life cheerfully giving to others. When Nick offers her the ultimate chance for a turnaround, will Lily's fear of being 'second hand' ruin the opportunity of forever love for both of them?

Book 1 in The Rangelands series.

A remote outback home where she can become someone new–and maybe find a forever love?

Rachel Meade is a woman with a past she wants to escape from. Finding herself in Mt Maria, a small outback town in Western Australia, she thinks she's found a place to stay.

Before she knows it, Rachel is corralled into helping with the Tidy Town competition by the Dramatic Society widows who have a tendency to gossip and take charge. It's not in her plan, but she finds herself allowing friendships to develop. She's even more surprised by her growing attraction to the town's engaging senior police officer.

Ex–detective Senior Sergeant Luke Weston knows anything and everything happens in the country, and he's seen it all–stolen chickens, pub fights and alleged cheating for the Tidy Town competition are only some of puzzles Mt Maria offers Luke. He's been playing for Rachel, thinking maybe she's the one. Then he gets news that the Crime Squad are looking for her, and he's ordered to get close and stay close. Is Rachel in trouble, or is she the trouble?

Luke is fighting his attraction to a woman he might have to take into custody, and it looks like he's going to be arresting more than one person before the end of the week. Luke needs to restore peace in his corner of the outback, but he knows he's not going to get out of this without getting his heart busted.

With her past catching up with her, Rachel has to decide whether it's time to cut and run again, or whether this time she's found the person–and the place–to finally heal her heart.
