Country at Heart by Mandy Magro -- A wounded soldier and a free spirit, both determined to follow their dreams -- but can they resist the call of true love? The Army and his dearly beloved explosive detection dog Indy are Dean's life -- he can't imagine doing anything else. Although physically and emotionally tested by the death of his mother in a recent accident, and by his father's wish to have him home, he is still determined to fulfil his lifelong dream of protecting the country he loves. But life has other plans for Dean when he and Indy are wounded in action in Afghanistan and sent home to heal. Free-spirited Summer has never wanted for anything, with her successful father aiming high for her future at any cost. Much to her father's dismay, instead of pursuing the career he's planned for her she intends to open her own yoga school and meditation centre. But she has agreed to spend one last summer with her parents, at their luxurious beachfront holiday home.Home Truths by Louise Forster -- London-based chef Jennifer Dove loves her exciting, fast-paced life and she has every intention of returning to it ASAP. This trip to Tumble Creek -- middle-of-nowhere Australia -- is just a blip, a trip out of time, to visit her sister and niece and farewell her beloved Uncle. But barely hours into her stay, she disturbs an intruder in her uncle's house, is questioned by police, and finds a pair of fluffy pink stilettos in the bedroom. Things are not all they seem in Tumble Creek, and much as she tries not to, Jennifer is sucked in to the mystery surrounding her uncle. Who is his girlfriend Veronica, and why is she not here? What are the locals hiding? And why can she not get sexy local Calum McGregor out of her mind?Breaking The Drought by Lisa Ireland -- When a smooth-talking, sophisticated city girl comes striding into town on her stiletto heels, he's the last person who wants to notice... When Jenna McLean gets roped into attending a matchmaking ball in a small country town, she holds no illusions of meeting the man of her dreams. A no-nonsense magazine editor, Jenna doesn't believe in leaving love to chance, which is why she's developed Marriage Material -- a fool-proof framework for husband hunting. Shearers and farmhands need not apply. Sheep grazier Luke Tanner has met women like Jenna before, and knows not to waste his time. With the drought dragging on and bushfire season around the corner, the last thing he needs is a spoiled city girl like Jenna adding to his problems. He'll help out with the ball because it's good for the community, but he won't dance, he won't flirt, and he definitely won't be matched.
