Find Your Way Home

Jackie Ashenden. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $8.99 mass market (312p) ISBN 978-1-72824-731-1

Ashenden (Pregnant by the Wrong Prince) pairs a driven Texan businesswoman with a sexy single father in rural New Zealand in this page-turning enemies-to-lovers contemporary romance. Izzy Montgomery is out for a change after her fiancé dumps her and she’s booted from her job—so when her brother mentions an opportunity to work for an adventure tour company in Brightwater Valley, New Zealand, she’s on the next plane. Pure Adventure NZ’s owner Chase Kelly is determined to bring new blood to his tiny town, but he and Izzy and Chase instantly clash—until all the ways they’ve gotten under one another’s skin morphs into untamed passion. But Chase’s wife abandoned him and his 12-year-old daughter, Gus, six years earlier, leaving Chase afraid to believe in Izzy’s commitment to them. If she can’t convince him, their romance may be doomed. Ashenden’s well-shaded hero and heroine force readers to care for them, while Gus steals every scene she’s in. Those who like their heroes alpha to the core will fall in love with this sexy and sweet tale. Agent: Helen Breitwieser, Cornerstone Literary. (Apr.)
