Seattle socialite Julia Dorsey has it all—prestige, money, magnificent Morgan horses, and a powerful, brilliant husband. But Julia's life is a nightmare of domestic violence and terror, and only an act of courage can save her. Will the price be too high? When mysterious Heck Dillon enters her life, Julia's fears return. Who is he? Can she trust him? As Dillon offers her quiet strength and protection, Julia begins to believe in hope for a new future, thanks to her discovery of a horse rescue in need. But the old life still haunts her and, before she can move forward, she must face her past.

One broken heart. One battered soul. No one said life would be fair or easy. Quiet, Peruvian-born artist Cassie Lopez learned this the hard way. Betrayed by the man she planned to marry, she shut herself off as far away from all but her closest friend from college… Until the night Luke Denton came crashing into her Colorado mountain sanctuary with a vengeance. Confused by her heart's response to this kind and gentle man, Cassie pushes herself to help the cowboy recover quickly so she can send him on his way. But Luke’s patience and understanding threaten to break down the very defenses she needs to survive in this world after he's gone. Search-and-Rescue worker Luke, who lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident, also knows firsthand of the unfairness of life. He keeps his own nightmares at bay by focusing on his rescue activities, most recently adopting and working with abused and neglected horses. Can two wounded people find trust and love together? Do nightmares end where dreams come true? SPECIAL NOTE: This book contains a number of chapters that focus on the continuing journey of Adam and Karla Montague. Rather than publish it as a separate short novel, Kallypso Masters chose to incorporate them into Luke and Cassie’s story. But it’s a bonus for readers who get an enormous book—for a much longer Rescue Me Saga visit with some of the couples you love!
Get ready to play some Texas Hold ‘em... Things are getting tricky for sexy Sadie Hollowell, about to be forced into a bubblegum-pink bridesmaid dress for her little cousin Tally Lynn’s wedding.

She needs a rescue plan now. And good-looking stranger Vince Haven might just be the perfect ‘date’ she needs to get her family off her back. But moody ex-Navy SEAL Vince Haven is only stopping by Lovett to visit his crazy Aunt Luraleen. ‘No strings attached’is his motto, and he’ll be damned if he acts as any woman’s fake date! Sadie’s out of luck again - but when Vince’s aunt makes him an offer he can’t refuse, he could be hanging around town for a while. And if Sadie gets that date after all, she might just get more than she bargained for!
Starting out in the early 50's with a not so common childhood, Eunice Rush seemed destined from the very beginning to write a book. Living on a small island with no running water, electricity or indoor plumbing may seem odd but - it was a very important time of her life without which her future destiny may be been very different. In fact, the book will cover many events (most of them WHY ME LORD! type) that shape her destiny. Little did she know that it would take over 50 years and tons of God's wonderful creatures to help transform her life in preparation for her future line of service! Starting out as the only child of the owners of a fishing and hunting camp in northern Minnesota, she learned at an early age to entertain herself in a variety of ways. She also realized early in life that animals were her most constant friends and fun to train. Throughout this book you will follow Eunice through years of antidotal events that shaped her life - many of them with animals. Among others antidotes, you will laugh your way through the cat - who, much like Peter was able to walk on water (at least for a short time), the chickens with custom made spats, the training of goldfish, and share the sorrow of the not so happy events surrounding Charlie the Chick. Come join Eunice, where everyday on the farm is an event, and where every horse performance is exciting and it's all in God's plan.
Of all animals, horses are believed to have the greatest ability to mirror human emotions, and their natural empathy can be a powerful antidote to human stress. In horses that have been rescued, the ability to connect and give back to those who saved them is heightened. In Horse Rescue we meet Sue Spence, who founded Horses Helping Humans as a result of rescuing little Larry, a pony who helped her through the healing stages of breast cancer and led her to change her life direction. There's Rebel Morrow, whose journey to the Sydney Olympics with her rescued horse, Groover, is nothing short of miraculous; and Michael Williams, in and out of prison for twelve years and finally seeing some light through the Horses for Hope program. These, and twelve other rescuers celebrate the special bonds and unique experiences they have witnessed and share what they have learned from their equine companions. Joanne Schoenwald ran her own registered horse rescue charity in south-east Queensland. She is a writer with a passion for the cause. 'What brings me joy, what makes my heart sing, are the inspiring, goose-bumping, enlightening rescue stories of exhilarating triumph, quiet meditative wisdom, life-changing moments and powerful self-healing and self-realisation.'
