THE HOPE SERIES
A RAY OF HOPE
What you lose in the fire, you’ll find in the ashes
Stuart Mackenzie's mission is to save the world, one fire at a time. When he arrives in the small seaside town of Groenbosbaai on South Africa’s Garden Route, he doesn’t realise how true the saying will be.
Stuart has dedicated years of his life to the International Fire Rescue Team. He has little time for love or relationships. A life-changing meeting with the local town doctor has more significant consequences than Stuart could ever imagine, reminding him of things he buried in the past.
Hayley Evans has given up on love. She doesn’t want to experience another heartache. After all, she’s already lost her husband to cancer. So she buries herself in her studies and work, but her return to Groenbosbaai to join the family practice brings more than she expected. She finds herself and the peace she so desperately needs.
Can their meeting offer more than a ray of hope for Stuart and Hayley?
A LITTLE HOPE
What’s a woman to do when she catches her boyfriend in the act with her best friend on her antique table... on her birthday?
Find the nearest pub in Glasgow to help drown her sorrows, of course. Throw in a bad boy, and she'll accept him as an early Christmas present.
What Jenna Meyer doesn't need is to be rescued by a good guy. Or maybe she does. Why else would she wake up in a stranger's bed the next morning and accept his offer that's too good to refuse?
Ben Alexander is rebuilding his rugby career in Scotland, far from the heartache he left behind on an African farm.
His close-knit family worries about him. Rescuing Jenna gives him the perfect solution to get them off his back. As his fake girlfriend, she will make this Christmas easier to bear. It's a win-win situation for both of them.
Can two broken people find some festive cheer and a little hope for the future?
