The Long Paddock by Alissa Callen

Country girl Cressy Knight has convinced the small-town Woodlea grapevine that she's moved on from Denham Rigby, the cowboy who left her behind. Now it's time to move on for real.

All Denham wanted was to be with Cressy forever, but a dark family secret left him no choice but to run. But when faced with Cressy's desperation to save her drought-stricken farm, he can't keep his distance. As they work together droving on the long paddock, their old attraction burns. But will Cressy be prepared to risk her heart for a second time?

Second Time Sweeter by Ros Baxter

The last thing Genevieve Jenkins needs on top of two kids, a sick mother, a deadbeat ex and a heap of bad debt is for Mr Love of Her Life to ride back into her small home town of Sweet Pocket.

One-time bad boy Brodie Brown is back in town on a mission of mercy, but he can't let this town-or the girl who broke his heart - get under his skin. When the town's future is secure, he'll ride away again - back to his life and his future, and away from the girl who could make both worthwhile.

A Heart Stuck on Hope by Jennie Jones

With nothing left for her in Sydney, and no diagnosis for her daughter Ali, Adele packs her bags and moves her small family to the rural town of Dulili. In no time Adele finds herself drawn into the community - and into an unexpected friendship with her landlady's grandson.

Tom is only back in Dulili to help his grandmother and make new plans. Plans that don't include his grandmother's new tenant. But as Adele and Ali effortlessly work their way into his heart, he realises there are two crucial elements he left out of his plans - hope and love.

Ros Baxter

Ros Baxter has been writing since she was eight and penned a whimsical series of short stories about a race of tiny people who lived on a rainbow. While a few things intervened - a career in social policy, four children - Ros started writing again in earnest three years ago. In that time, Ros secured a two-book deal with Harper Collins Australia, published Sister Pact (a romantic comedy co-written with her sister Ali), been a contributing author to the e-anthology URL Love, and finaled in the STALI competition.

Ros writes transporting stories about love, family, friendship and women in all their glorious strength and contrariness. She loves to turn up the sizzle, throwing heroes and heroines into screwy and sometimes fantastical situations and watching how they take the heat. Ros lives in Brisbane's North with her husband Blair, four noisy children under eight, a neurotic dog and nine billion germs.

Alissa Callen

Alissa Callen is a country girl happiest living far from the city fringe. She draws inspiration from the countryside around her and from the resilience of local bush communities.

Once a teacher and a counsellor, she remains interested in the life journeys that people take. Alissa lives with her family on a small slice of rural Australia in Dubbo NSW.

Jennie Jones

Born in Wales and now living in Australia, Jennie Jones loved everything with a romantic element from an early age. That’s why she became an actor before she started writing. She toured the UK in all the grand old theatres, becoming someone else for two hours, eight performances a week and loved every second.

Now, Jennie loves writing rich, warm-hearted and refreshing stories of adventures of the heart. She’s a self-confessed would-be small town country girl and longs for the day when she and her family can set up home in a cute country cottage in the middle of a huge field. Until then, Jennie is enjoying life a five minute walk to the beach. She can hear the ocean as she types her stories.

She says writing keeps her artistic nature dancing and her imagination bubbling and like acting, she can’t envisage a day when it will ever get boring.
