Release day: The Wild One
Today is the official release of The Wild One by Janet Gover (paperback, Choc Lit). Here’s the blurb:
Iraq war veteran Dan Mitchell once disobeyed an order – and it nearly destroyed him. Now a national park ranger in the Australian outback, he’s faced with another order he is unwilling to obey Photographer Rachel Quinn seeks out beauty in unlikely places. Her work comforted Dan in his darkest days. But Quinn knows darkness too – and Dan soon realises she needs his help as much as he needs hers.
Carrie Bryant was a talented jockey until a racing accident broke her nerve. Now Dan and Quinn need her expertise, but can she face her fear? And could horse breeder, Justin Fraser, a man fighting to save his own heritage, be the one to help put that fear to rest?
Sometimes, the wounds you can’t see are the hardest to heal …
Janet dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Dan Mitchell is my favourite hero. When we first met in in the earlier novel Flight To Coorah Creek, he was rescuing a young woman trapped in some underground caves. I liked him then and just didn’t want to say goodbye to him. And I was worried about Carrie Bryant – the jockey who was hurt in a race fall in that first book. I wanted to be certain she recovered. I just didn’t want to leave the town and the people in it. So I wrote another book about Coorah Creek. This is a book about four wounded souls. Former serviceman Dan he has come home from Iraq haunted by terrible memories. Carrie has recovered physically from her fall, but has lost her nerve. Photographer Rachel Quinn has no home. She lives in her car trying to pretend she’s not running away from her past. Justin Fraser has been in love with Carrie since the first time he saw her ride, but he is about to lose his heritage and everything he holds dear. The four of them have just a few days to save a herd of wild horses. If they succeed, they might just save each other too. Although this is the second Coorah Creek book, you don’t have to read the other one first. Each is a separate story that stands alone. As for me – I still don’t want to leave Coorah Creek behind. You see, there’s the policeman, Max. He has a story he wants me to tell too …
