The Scent of Promise

A family farm, financial hardship, forgiveness, and fortitude.

With her thirtieth birthday just around the corner and a dream promotion on the cards at work, rising show jumping star Hannah Simpson has the world at her feet—until a series of events changes her life forever. A disillusioned Hannah answers the call home to the family farm in South Head, New Zealand, only to be shocked by what awaits her there.

When a handsome shearer turns up at the farm gate, he seems like an answer to her prayers… except for his dubious history. Although undeniably capable, not to mention pulse-poundingly attractive, the last thing Hannah wants in her life is another man of questionable integrity. One disastrous relationship is more than enough to put a girl off men forever.

But with no other options available, Hannah must recruit the shearer’s help if she’s to get the struggling, debt-ridden farm back on its feet.

Could diversifying into flower growing be a solution? Or is she headed for a lavender-scented disaster that could see Hannah lose her home, her farming future, and her grandparents’ hard-won and precious legacy?
