Garrett Saunders' world changed two years ago on a road in Afghanistan. Back home, he feels like a stranger. As he struggles to find his place in the world, he meets a horse destined for the slaughterhouse and a woman bent on rescuing the strays of the world, including him.

Blair Greyson moves to Masonville to look after her ailing grandfather and give her rescue horses a home. Right away she butts heads with a surly former Marine. Despite a rocky start, they come to an agreement: Blair will board Garrett's rescue horse and he'll help with repairs around her farm.


Garrett finds purpose working with Blair—and falls in love with her. But she's hiding a secret. Can she forgive herself and accept Garrett's love, or will she let guilt and regret continue to rule her life?

He pushed himself to his feet, disconcerted by his unsteadiness. He made a few halting steps toward the gate as Blair ran into the yard.

“I forgot my sweater,” she said, grabbing the garment from the back of a chair and slipping it on. “It’s cooler than I thought. Are you sure you don’t want to watch the fireworks with us?”

“No, I—”

His words were cut off by a loud explosion, and his only thought was that he had to protect Blair. He grabbed her and threw her to the ground, covering her body with his. He was under attack. Why was Blair in Afghanistan? How could he keep her safe?

Through the chaos and noise, he heard her muffled voice beneath him. “Garrett, you’re crushing me.”

He shifted his weight slightly. “Shh. I’m sorry. You have to stay down and quiet. I can’t let them hurt you.”

She stopped struggling. “Who’s going to hurt me?”

“Can’t you hear the mortar fire? I have to protect you.”

Her hand rubbed his back in gentle circles. “It’s all right, Garrett. It’s only fireworks. It can’t hurt us. We’re safe here.”

He lifted his head and looked around. He was in Cole and Lauren’s back yard in Masonville. There were no bombs, no shelling, no Taliban. He looked down into Blair’s face, into the pity in her eyes. He rolled off her, disgusted with himself.

Disgusted and scared. He was losing his mind.

Lauren didn't intend to sleep with her brother-in-law Cole on the day of her husband's funeral. But now that she is pregnant, she's not sorry. Cole's given her a baby, a long-wished-for miracle. He's been her friend forever, though she never told him or anyone else how unhappy her marriage to his cheating brother was. And she's afraid to tell the small town that considered her husband a hero that the baby isn't his.

Cole's been in love with Lauren since he was sixteen. It kills him that everyone believes the baby is his dead brother. All he wants is to claim the baby, and Lauren, as his own. Though she marries him, will Lauren's heart ever be his?

Lauren must tell the truth or risk losing Cole. Is her newly discovered love for him greater than her fear of scandal in her hometown?

Cole wrapped her in his arms. He held her securely, whispering reassurances. “It’s all right, Lauren. Don’t cry. It’s going to be okay, sweetheart.”


She clung to him; her face buried against his neck. How wonderful to be held, to be touched. It had been so long—


What was she doing? This was Cole, her friend. She pulled away from him. “I’m sorry.”


“You don’t have anything to apologize for.”


She turned away and tried to wipe the tears from her face. After she got her tears under control, she made herself smile at him. “Do you remember the homecoming dance? The time I tripped in my new high heels and sprained my ankle?”


“Of course, I do. You couldn’t walk, so I carried you from the school gym to Billy’s car, and he drove you home. I remember you were a lot heavier than you looked.”


She swatted his shoulder, hiccupping laughter mixing with her tears. “Very funny. I was trying to make a point.”


He wiped the tears from her cheek with the pad of his thumb, his dark eyes full of tenderness. “So what was your point?”


“You’re a good friend. You’ve always been there every time I’ve needed you, and here you are again. Thank you.”


He stared into her eyes but said nothing. She couldn’t look away. He continued to stroke her cheek with his thumb, the tiny caress acting like a balm to her battered heart. She placed her hand on his cheek.




They reached for each other in mutual need. He pulled her against his chest, his mouth descending on hers in a hungry, urgent kiss. She sighed against his mouth, and he brought her closer. He wants me. It had been so long since someone had wanted her. Only her.

Jana Richards has tried her hand at many writing projects over the years, from magazine articles and short stories to full-length paranormal suspense and romantic comedy. She loves to create characters with a sense of humor, but also a serious side.  She believes there’s nothing more interesting then peeling back the layers of a character to see what makes them tick.

When not writing up a storm, working at her part-time day job as bookkeeper, or dealing with dust bunnies, Jana can be found pursuing hobbies such as golf (which she plays very badly) or reading (which she does much better).

Jana lives in Western Canada with her husband Warren.

We do realize how hard it is for a lot of households with so many being out of work. We hope that these lists (adults next) will help at least give the kids some enjoyable reading and quiet time. If, you can please remember to leave a review if the kids like it. Also, when you get back on your feet, that you might continue to remember the different authors on these lists and be repeat customers.

My hubby and I get nothing at all for this we just enjoy reading and we have always encouraged our children and granddaughter to read. It can open many doors for them at school and in their imaginations too.


Now, sorry to tell you will not be seeing us on Instagram anymore and we are still debating on Facebook since they own both now. They have frozen us out of both accounts for spamming and for being a business. Saying we added the same book too many times. I will say it may have been seen on my personal page twice only because of the way they changed their set up again. And Amazon froze me out because I named another book bank that provides me with the books for the different publishers to source them out. All happening within weeks of each other. We are sorry if we were. It's just we do read a lot and now what else is there.

Now, I will say we did add several books at a time but we read a lot of books. But we have had our blog since 2013 and have been doing it the same way since then. I kid you not since then every time I go on, I never know what they have changed next. I am always learning a new way of having to post and get it seen. 

They are always promoting their business side which I never looked at and they might be made because of that. But we went from hundreds of people getting to see our blog down to 20 then over a course of weeks it would build-up to the 60ish. Found out that of the over 300 likes we have they would only allow about 25 a day see them. So now when I got on just to look to see what is happening they have just about pulled everything we have done since we have started.

I have to say this has been eating me up and affecting my health over it. All we have ever wanted to do is promote reading and independent authors. It is really funny that this all came about on the day that I posted the free reads for you all. I did notice since I have a lot of authors that I get the newsletters that Amazon has now launched their own free website for free books for which you must sign up for.

So, for now, and maybe always we will only be posting here on Pinterest, Twitter, and BookBub, I do have Goodreads also.
