Cassandra is the beautiful, yet analytical daughter of a wealthy attorney. Destined to follow in her father's footsteps, her life of privilege suddenly shatters, and she finds herself with no home, career, or money. A glimmer of hope arrives in a letter from the grave, promising a happier existence. Cassandra stands to inherit over half a million dollars if she can live in the sleepy little town of Nantahala for six months. Falling in love, however, was not part of the deal, and without warning, she finds herself fighting for two lives.
A man with a traumatic past is able to turn his life around and is happy with his chosen career as a whitewater guide. Everything changes, though, when fate hurls a woman into his path. His carefree life is in turmoil, and his former weaknesses threaten to overtake him. Will he be strong enough when tragedy strikes and is once again in danger of losing everything he loves?
While "Land of the Noonday Sun" is part of the the Southern Romantic-Suspense collection, it is a stand-alone story that can be read on its own. All the stories in the collection have slight connections so you can read each book individually - without a cliffhanger - then continue the journey and meet new protagonists with different issues and tragedies to overcome. Each story has a mystery, there's always a gentle message, and above all, there's always romance and suspense.
