The House on Burra Burra Lane
by Jennie Jones
Dr Ethan Granger is a little reserved so I’m going to talk about him behind his back. Swallow’s Fall in The House on Burra Burra Lane is his home town and he’s the vet. He’s thirty-four years old. He’s 6’ 5” (for those using metric only - that’s tall). He has sandy, wind-swept hair (he puts a comb through it every morning but he’s outdoors every day, so he just looks - you know – manly and adventuresome all the time).
Does he consider himself heroic? He said, “No. Not at all.” But there was a masculine blush on his tanned face as he answered because Swallow’s Fall newcomer, city-girl Sammy Walker was standing at his side, so I’m thinking he’s amenable to one woman thinking him heroic.
However, there were problems in his past, and the possible consequences of those and the attraction he feels to the city-girl have put him in the unsure position of not knowing what’s going to happen next. Or how he’ll cope.
A dilapidated house, a city girl looking for a tree change, and a rugged vet with a past. Just another day in rural Australia…

— and the firing line for gossip. It was hardly a ‘date’ but sparks of the sensual kind are difficult to smother in a community of only 87 people. Now there’s a bet running on how long she’ll stay and what she’ll get up to while she’s in town.
Ethan has his own issues — Sammy’s presence in his childhood home brings with it painful recollections of family scandals and a bad‐boy youth. When the gossip around them heightens, his life is suddenly a deck of cards spread on the table for all to see. Then Sammy's past catches up with her... and it looks like all bets are off.
But wait there's more:
