Welcome to Levenham, a small town that's big on heart, hope and happiness. If you like ruggedly rural heroes, smart heroines, colourful local characters and plenty of romance, this is your home.
Three complete stories.
Book 1: ROCKING HORSE HILL
Who do you trust when a stranger threatens to tear your family apart?
When Emily Wallace-Jones's brother arrives home with a secretive new fiancée, Em is determined not to treat Felicity with the same teenage snobbery that tore apart her relationship with her first love, Josh Sinclair. A man who has now sauntered sexily back into Em's life and given her a chance for redemption.
But as Felicity settles in, suspicions are raised about her intentions toward Em's beloved Rocking Horse Hill. Though worried for her future, Em sides with her brother and Felicity, until a near tragedy sets in motion a chain of events that will change the family forever.
Book 2: SUMMER AND THE GROOMSMAN
It's Levenham's wedding of the year but unlucky-in-love Harry Argyle has more on his mind than being groomsman.
After nearly colliding with horse while driving home to the family farm, Harry Argyle comes face-to-face with its pretty owner, Summer Taylor, and doesn't hold back his annoyance. But that has nothing on the horror they both feel when Harry's wedding party books a session at the day spa where Summer works and they find themselves paired.
Realising he's over-reacted, Harry vows to set things right but Summer isn't about to easily forgive the man who called her horse stupid. Can these two find love or will Summer's wayward horse put his hoof in it again?
Book 3: SANTA AND THE SADDLER
He's found the girl of his dreams, but she's just passing through. Can he turn fleeting Christmas magic into forever?
Windmill fabricator Danny Burroughs doesn't have time to wait at the local saddler—no matter how pretty the girl behind the counter—he's juggling two jobs as it is. But his little sister has her heart set on a unique piece of saddlery for Christmas and he can't let her down.
When super-cute Danny arrives at the saddlery Beth Wells is temporarily managing after midnight wearing a Santa suit, a broad grin and pleading she make his sister's present, Beth makes a deal—she will take the order in exchange for Danny's help. Except this flirty Santa's idea of helping involves more than stacking shelves, and their smouldering attraction soon becomes a blaze. Will these two chance-met strangers find the courage to gamble on their love? Or will Danny's dream girl leave nothing behind but a sweet Christmas memory?
About the Author
A South Australian country girl by birth, Cathryn loves nothing more than a rugged rural hero who’s as good with his heart as he is with his hands, which is probably why she writes them! Her romances are warm and emotional, and feature themes that don’t flinch from the tougher side of life but are often happily tempered by the antics of naughty animals. Her aim is to make you smile, sigh, and perhaps sniffle a little, but most of all feel wonderful.
Cathryn was born horse mad, which is little wonder with three generations of jockeys in the family. After scoring her first horse at age 10, upon whom she bestowed the eternally romantic name of Mysty, Cathryn spent the rest of her teenage years in equine bliss riding pony club and hunt club, and competing in eventing, dressage and showjumping until university beckoned.
Armed with a shiny Bachelor of Applied Science (Agriculture) from Roseworthy College she moved to Melbourne and later Newcastle, working in the agricultural and turf seeds industry. Her partner’s posting to France took Cathryn overseas for three years in Provence where she finally gave in to her life-long desire to write.
All of Cathryn’s novels have been finalists in the Australian Romance Readers Awards and the 2014 awards also saw her in contention for Favourite Australian Romance Author.
Cathryn currently lives in New South Wales at the base of the Blue Mountains with her partner of many years, Jim. When she’s not writing, she plays golf (ineptly), cooks (well), and in football season barracks (rowdily) for her beloved Sydney Swans AFL team.
