Midnight Whispers/Carol Warburton
"With the loss of her father, Jessamyne Clayborne finds herself without any family, except for her estranged brother Robert, who has long since sought his fortune elsewhere. though nervous, Jessamyne takes passage on the next ship to Australia, hoping to reunite with Robert in the untamed Outback, the wildest of lands.
But before landfall, a horrific storm sweeps her from the ship, leaving Jessamyne for dead. When the Mckade family finds her and nurses her back to health, Jessamyne is befriended by Brock, their handsome son. In time, Robert is located and she is reunited with her long-lost brother.
Her reunion with Robert is a bitter mixture of disappointment and dread as she witnesses the unnerving lapses in his character and receives a chilling reception from his wife, Olivia. As she uncovers layer upon layer of intrigue and deceit, Jessamyne soon finds that she must make the heartbreaking decision between her only remaining family and true love."
I have several books from Carol Warburton. I love her style of writing. It has love, compassion, intrigue, fears, betrayal, and suspense!! I recommend you read all of her books! This one so far has got to be my favorite and it was also the first book I read of hers.
Jessamyne is afraid of horses and for a good reason. But when she is put in a place where horses are a must she has to try and overcome her fear. Thank goodness Brock is around. And not just for his good looks and love of family! These two characters when put together cause electricity! (romantic electricity).
When she finds her brother Robert, she is put in a situation where she cant trust him. Things take a turn for the worse when she discovers he is not who she thought and that he has kept secrets from not just her but his wife.
It was easy for me to step into this book and put myself in Jessamyne's shoes and experience all her emotions. She is definitely a woman I would look up too, and would love to be friends with. Not to mention, who wouldn't want Brock???!!! ;)
