Release day: Lone Heart Pass
Today is the official release of Lone Heart Pass by Jodi Thomas (A Ransom Canyon romance)(paperback, hardback and ebook, Harlequin). Here’s the blurb:
Where family bonds are made and broken, and where young love sparks as old flames grow dim, Ransom Canyon is ready to welcome—and shelter—those who need it.
With a career and a relationship in ruins, Jubilee Hamilton is left reeling from a fast fall to the bottom. The run-down Texas farm she’s inherited is a far cry from the second chance she hoped for, but it and the abrasive foreman she’s forced to hire are all she’s got.
Every time Charley Collins has let a woman get close, he’s been burned. So Lone Heart ranch and the contrary woman who owns it are merely a means to an end, until Jubilee tempts him to take another risk—to stop resisting the attraction drawing them together despite all his hard-learned logic.
Desperation is all young Thatcher Jones knows. And when he finds himself mixed up in a murder investigation, his only protection is the shelter of a man and woman who—just like him—need someone to trust.
Jodi dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Some books come into my mind fast, at full gallop. Lone Heart Pass was like that and I loved writing it. Many nights I was up later than planned because I wanted to see what happened next. I opened the story with two people. Jubilee’s world is crashing down so she goes to the only place she’s ever felt safe—a tiny ranch near Crossroads, Texas. Charley thinks he’s messed up his life and is struggling to get it right for once. He’s broke, she’s desperate to make this last chance work, so they agree on a partnership that might just save them both. Only, goals never come easy. He’s trying to raise a daughter alone and she has a sister who runs away from her marriage. Charley’s big heart makes him stand up for a homeless boy in danger as Jubilee and Charley’s love begins to grow. By the way, readers are going to fall in love with the kid, Thatcher Jones. He’s 14 and hunts rattlers to earn his lunch money. This story is filled with a forever love story, danger, and lots of laughs as people scarred by life form a family. Ride along with me to Lone Heart Pass, where the moon shines over the opening in the pass only at midnight and the legend is, if you wish hard enough, your true desire will come true.
