SARA News ~ a whollota sass going on

In the meantime, hold onto your hats, this issue has a lotta Sass going on....

Debut release!!!

Emily Hussey has her debut release, The Red Heart from Steam eReads.

Arriving in Alice Springs was the start of a dream job for Kathy. As a newly qualified pilot, she was anxious to prove her abilities not just to her new boss and colleagues, but also to the characters that she met on her daily flight runs.

She was delighted to find out just how friendly the locals could be – well most of them. Brandon Woodleigh, a local station hand was contemptuous of the young city woman who was clearly out of her depth in the alien and harsh environment. Kathy vowed to keep out of his way and with a bit of luck, after her early encounters, she wouldn’t see him again.

Except she did – and he wasn’t who she thought he was. But that didn’t make him any less unpleasant. He had a knack of turning up wherever she was whether in town or out bush and each encounter left her feeling scorched in more ways than one.

Trish Morey has a new release, Second Chance Bride as part of the Montana Born Brides series by new publisher, Tule Publishing Group.

Scarlett Buck has always been flaky in comparison to her sensible twin sister Tara, so nobody is really surprised when Scarlett spends all her money on a one way ticket to Australia to be with the man she’s met on the Net. But she hasn’t reckoned on the guy already being married, or her mom getting sick, and now she needs money for a flight home to Marietta, MT—quick. Signing on with Bella's Belles in Kalgoorlie isn't be the proudest moment in her life but it will get her home fast. After all, it's just sex.

Or is it?

Mitch Bannister's ex is about to marry his best friend, and he could really do with a cold beer and a hot woman. But the cowgirl he takes a shine to at Bella's is surprisingly skittish, and in the end he leaves without hooking up.

Later, when Mitch spies the cowgirl in the local pub begging for a job, he shrinks into the shadows--he's not looking for complications, and something tells him that Scarlett Buck is a whole handful of them. But soon it's clear she's not just trouble, she's in trouble, and like it or not, he's not about to turn his back on this stray from the States. Especially if she can do him a favor in return. After all, it's just a helping hand.

Or is it?

An exciting New Adult romance about love catching up to you no matter how far you run… 

When injury destroyed her dream of playing college basketball, Aubree Taylor fled overseas. Now she's finally home again and ready to move on with her life. Until she runs into Hunter Stone on her first night out, the only guy who's ever meant anything to her – and the last person she wants to see.
Since she ran out on him two years ago, Hunter hasn't been able to get Aubree off his mind. The sexy football star has had girls all over him for years, but Aubree is the only one to have ever seen behind the cocky persona he puts on for the crowd.

Despite her attempts to keep her distance, Aubree is unable to resist the strong attraction between them and it isn't long before they fall into a passionate relationship. She has never been afraid of a challenge, but Hunter's arrogance and inablity to trust are testing her to her limits. Aubree must decide whether to follow her heart and lower her guard…or risk losing the best thing that's ever happened to her.
