Renny Kudrow, Director of the Kihali animal orphanage in Kenya, is a brilliant scientist and an expert in animal communication. But human communication?
Not so much, thinks Starlite Higgins, the orphanage's wildlife vet he has hired over the objection of others who think a woman is not up to the job. Renny is prickly, remote, critical, and Starlite, anxious to please and accustomed to success, is unable to win his approval.
When Renny and Starlite are forced to work together to rescue a lovable baby rhino from poachers, they must face the secrets they both hide--and the attraction they can no longer deny.
Meet the brave and lovable baby rhino, Zuri (the word means “beautiful” in Swahili), Doris and Maisie, the wise and caring elephants, and Boozie, a mischievous young goat. Get to know string bean-skinny Jomo and strong, athletic Muthengi, the Kenyan wildlife experts, Ian Stewart-Montgomery, the witty, handsome half-Kenyan, half-English photo safari guide, and all the other human and animal friends who find a home at Kihali.
A KISS AT KIHALI will appeal to readers who love animals, adventure and tender love stories about second chances.
A KISS AT KIHALI is suitable for a wide range of readers and contains no sex or cursing.

Ruth Harris is a talented writer who has come up with a novel so entertaining and interesting you won’t have to hide if someone asks you what you’re reading.” —West Coast Review of Books
“Fast-paced, superior fiction with a zinging sense of style. A skillfully written, highly commercial “page-turner” Love And Money is also a series of carefully drawn character studies and insightful psychological portraits.
“Love And Money focuses on three major characters. Deedee Dahlen is a million dollar heiress, ‘born late, as if she knew ahead of time how complicated her life was going to be and needed all the time she could get to prepare for coping with its difficulties.’
“Lana Bantry, Deedee’s illegitimate sister, was born ‘six weeks prematurely, as if she couldn’t wait to get out into the world and take charge.’
“Slash Steiner, a ‘man from nowhere who makes it big and becomes Deedee’s husband and Lana’s lover.
“Harris makes these characters and the joys and tragedies of their lives exciting and believable. With a narrative style that is crisply precise and descriptive, an unerring ear for dialogue and an overall tone that is strongly reminiscent of Susan Isaacs, Harris has written a terrifically satisfying ‘good read.’” —Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel
