Passed down through the same family for over a century, the remote sheep and cattle station of Broken Creek has recently been taken over by global agribusiness company Carnarvon Holdings. Now Carnarvon has sent its best troubleshooting manager, Tess Drummond, to turn the property's failing fortunes around - fast. When Tess arrives to take the reins of Broken Creek she's faced with a couple of nasty surprises. For starters, her head stockman, Nate McAdam, happens to be the same gorgeous stranger she hooked up with - and ran out on - a few weeks before. As if that wasn't bad enough, Nate was supposed to inherit Broken Creek until his stepfather ran it into the ground. Now the last McAdam on the station leads a team of men whose bonds have been forged through hell and high water and whose mission is to see off Carnarvon and Tess so he can take his rightful place. A genius with farm work - and women - but a disaster in the office, Nate is everything Tess believes a farmer shouldn't be. Determined not to give in to her growing attraction to him, Tess sets out to do her job, but she soon finds herself caught up in the battle of her career. This irresistibly entertaining novel combines romance, suspense and an unforgettable cast of characters.

Read this classic romance by New York Times bestselling author Penny Jordan, now available for the first time in e-book! Once bitten, twice shy. No man would make a fool of Angelica again — not after the way Giles had treated her. She certainly wasn’t interested in the attractive and charming Daniel Forbes. Although Daniel was at least honest enough not to offer her protestations of undying love. But when he let Angelica know — in a way that only Daniel could — that he found her a highly desirable woman, Angelica finally began to realize just how hard it was going to be to resist this man’s brand of persuasion… Originally published in 1990.

Carolyn Kolb provides a delightful and detailed look into the heart of her city, New Orleans. She is a former Times-Picayune reporter and current columnist for New Orleans Magazine, where versions of these essays appeared as "Chronicles of Recent History." Kolb takes her readers, both those who live in New Orleans and those who love it as visitors, on a virtual tour of her favorite people and places. Divided into sections on food, Mardi Gras, literature, and music, these short essays can be read in one gulp or devoured slowly over time. Either way, the reader will find a welcome companion and guide in Kolb. In bringing her stories up to date, Kolb's writings reflect an ongoing pattern of life in her fascinating city. Since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, some of these things remembered will never return. Some of the people whose stories Kolb tells are no longer with us. It is important to her, and to us, that they not be forgotten. Kolb, and her readers, can honor them by sharing and enjoying their stories. As Kolb says, "When things fail, when the lights go out and the roof caves in and the water rises, all that remains, ultimately, is the story." This collection of such stories was made with love.

Every chapter ended with so much drama and mystery I had to keep reading until I was done. - Janet Po “Grafton brings mystery and fast-paced action into one neat package. "One Last Time" is written like a cable show and is one great ride. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up!” - Nancy Myers “Kinsey’s storytelling feels as real as Nora Robert’s. I picked up "One Last Time" and finished it in one sitting. - Mark Vetta “Kinsey Grafton does a fantastic job at keeping you hooked and engaged. I look forward to more from this talented author.” - Sue Mcdonald “Grafton is my new favorite author!” - Vince M. Sandy Brown grew up reading Nancy Drew and now she is the real life version.
