Release day: The Next Season

1 December 2014

Today is the official release of The Next Season by Rachael Johns (ebook, Harlequin Australia). Here’s the blurb:

The Next SeasonSometimes going home is the hardest thing you can do…and sometimes the hardest thing turns out to be the best.

When Zoe Bennett’s boyfriend cheats on her, leaving her homeless, jobless and practically broke, she returns to the only place she’s ever felt safe and at home – Wildwood Point. She hopes to heal her heart and find a job to get herself back on her feet – but she has forgotten how small Wildwood Point is.

Until a couple of months ago Shaun Elliot’s life was sweet – a job he loved and big plans for the future. Until, that is, his long-time girlfriend turned down his romantic New Year’s Eve marriage proposal in front of all their family and friends. Angry, hurt and feeling like he is the laughing stock of small town Wildwood Point, Shaun has sworn off relationships while he works out what to do with himself and his life.

The last thing he needs is to find his high school sweetheart stranded on the side of the road. She broke his heart when she left him seven years ago, but he’s never been the type to ignore someone who needs help…

Rachael dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I had so much fun writing a Christmas novella set in the fictional town of Wildwood Point last year that when my publisher suggested writing a linked novella this year, I jumped at the chance. I decided to write last year’s heroine’s younger brother Shaun’s story. Now Shaun is a surfer AND a fabulous carpenter and in addition to these very sexy traits, he’s also the kind of guy who can’t help rescuing animals and people. He has a massive dog who plays a fun part in the book who he rescued from the side of the road and the book begins with him rescuing his high school sweetheart from a similar situation. I had so much fun with Shaun and Zoe and his dog. Theirs is a sweet reunion romance in tone, although there are a few spicy scenes as well. I also hope those who enjoyed reading The Kissing Season last year, will love the glimpse they get into Hannah and Matt’s lives again. 

You can find out more about this book at Rachael’s website.
