Summary

Jack Harrison's monotonous life as a dairy farmer's son is at an end. Early rises, days spent at the mercy of his parent's chores—he's yearning for adventure. Jack's graduated high school and days from marking a major life milestone, his eighteenth birthday. His future seems set in stone until Jack uncovers a truth which implodes life as he knew it—a mother and father who share no biological connection to him, the truth laid bare in a pocket-sized journal. Angry and sore-hearted, Jack makes a naïve, drunken decision to vanish from a twenty-four-hour service station in Dalby all so he can keep a promise to Ellie—to attend the New Year's Eve rodeo at Mitchell, an event he always thought they'd attend together. 
     With everyone in Jack's life either dead or a liar, Jack hitchhikes and works odd jobs, meandering around Western Queensland collecting clues to locate his biological father. Through the power of the Australian Bush Telegraph, Jack uncovers his roots. His mother was a Jillaroo, his grandfather a legend of The Outback, tough, fearless and unlike the parent's who raised him. 
     All Jack wants is the truth, who is he? The more he learns, the more his greatest fear threatens to manifest. Can Jack live up to his mother's legacy?

    Protecting those in trouble is what Army Ranger Garrett Harding does best. But after helping a feisty redhead toss a couple of losers from her Idaho bar, the woman is anything but grateful for his assistance—in fact, she seems to know him. Worse, she almost certainly hates him. 
    The only thing Rachel Maguire wants is to send this smart-mouthed, muscled military man packing. She knows Garrett has his own reasons for staying, so when he offers Rachel a deal—two days to prove his worth or he leaves—she reluctantly agrees. Despite wanting to loathe him, Rachel finds herself drawn to his quiet confidence…and the way he fills out a t-shirt. 
    But when Rachel receives a phone call from the past, everything changes. The stalker who destroyed her life ten years ago is closing in once more. Refusing to put anyone else in harm's way, Rachel hits the road hoping to lure danger away from those she loves. But Garrett won't leave this sexy spitfire to face her stalker alone. He'll do anything to protect her. Even if it means risking his life—and his heart.
