Misfortune comes to us all in some form...
For Natalie Cameron, misfortune came in the most unspeakable way imaginable, now she must try and rebuild her life while fighting her own dark demons, the town speculation, her arrogant brother and her raging desire for the kindest man she's ever met.
Natalie Cameron, along with her young daughter, Dallas, is on the run from a past that threatens to destroy her sanity. When her car breaks down on the side of a two-lane Texas road, Jack Kinsen, her parent's ranch foreman, unknowingly comes to her rescue. His kind eyes and sincere charm make him an easy target for Natalie's trust issues and pent-up aggressions. But it doesn't take her long to realize that her attitude towards him has a lot less to do with jealousy and a lot more to do with the fact that his closeness sets her on fire like no one else ever has. His sincerity begins to disarm the front she guards so vigilantly. If she isn't careful, she could find herself lost to him....
At first glance, Jack Kinsen is fascinated by Natalie Butler Cameron and her child with her most curious gift. Natalie is the beloved only daughter of Jack's employers and he's not only baffled by her indifference to him but mystified by her unwarranted anger. She starts to awaken something primal within him, but will his compassionate nature be enough to break down the walls she hides behind or are her wounds simply too deep to heal?
Just as Natalie's fate begins to turn around, unknowing danger lurks on the horizon. Natalie's disturbing past is about to make an unexpected return...and with vengeance.
Abundance is a charming novel that will sweep you away with romance, drama and suspense as it expresses the depth of raw human emotion and the strength it takes to overcome tragedy.
Return to Abundance
For some, tragedy can be their downfall...
For Nathan Butler, committing the ultimate sin became his!
Living a life of solitude and regret changed him into someone darker, more callous.
Beneath his tough exterior, Nathan Butler has become a throbbing wound of raw anger, fighting with the aftermath of what he did to protect his family. Just when he’s convinced that he can never feel normal human emotions again, sensations start to stir within him at the sight of Jordan Tate, his sister’s best friend, and he’s not so sure he’s ready to feel them…
Jordan Tate is all too familiar with tragedy...
She’s on a mission to save Nathan Butler, her best friend’s brother, from his own condemnation. When he places a help wanted ad in the paper, she makes him an offer that’s simply too good to refuse, despite both his and her own misgivings. In doing so, she’s forced to deal with the fury that seems to be both bone-deep yet always lying just beneath the surface of his skin as well as his condescending tone and infuriating sarcasm. As if that weren’t enough, a slow, burning desire starts to smolder inside her just waiting to be unleashed…
Jordan has always considered herself a strong-willed woman with a spine of steel, but she starts to see soon enough that she may have finally met her match!
Can these two stubborn star-crossed souls overcome their despicable pasts, face their uncertain futures… and fall hopelessly in love? Or are some hurdles just too strenuous to surmount?
Let this heart-warming tale make you laugh, cry and swoon as we return to Texas and catch up with the gang in Abundance.
