Brenda Novak has introduced us to the New Horizons Boys Ranch in her latest Silver Springs Series, a ranch to give troubled teenagers a second chance to turnaround and a chance for a new lease of life.

UntilYouLovedMe-SilverSprings#3-July2017

“Until You Loved Me” is an emotional journey of an abandoned baby boy Hudson King, now an NFL superstar and rich to the core. And he owes Aiyana and The Horizons Boys Ranch for his giving him a purpose and direction to his life. Yet his past haunts him with unanswered questions. A chance encounter with a scientist though gives him some reprieve, and surprise, surprise, a chance at becoming a father.

Ellie Fisher the scientist wants one night to ride the wild side, to forget a nasty breakup with her fiancée and she sure lives up to it with Hudson King. And that one night of being wild and naughty makes her pregnant and a chance of motherhood.

Pro-sportsman, public figure, handsome Hudson King meets the quite, nerdy, workaholic, no-idea-about-sports Ellie Fisher. Sparks fly, attraction flares and now a child bonds them together under the same roof, giving them a chance at love and forever. Practical and analytical Ellie supports Hudson through the drama and the trauma of his past, and the ever kind and generous Hudson makes sure Ellie is being treated with love, care and respect.

A beautifully narrated story of support and care, love and understanding, redemption and fulfillment, “Until You Loved Me” is a perfect blend of emotions and romance that gives Hudson and Ellie their happily ever after. Brenda Novak is an amazing writer that I admire and enjoy her stories when she blends real life experiences to the story, adding that twist of charisma and genuinity.

Brenda Novak has set her bar pretty high with “This Heart Of Mine”, which happens to be my super top favorite story of hers…and will remain so forever. Having said that she has introduced us to the Silver Spring series and The New Horizons Boys Ranch in the first book of the series, “Finding Our Forever”, another emotional and engrossing series, and the second book in the series, “No One But You”, will take you on another ride of forgiveness and love, with Dawson Reed and Sadie Harris at the center of this heartwarming love story.

Having being acquitted of murdering his foster parents, all Dawson Reed wants is to build his farm, bring his special needs sister back home and live a quite life, away from the judgmental eyes of the Silver Springs townsfolk. Easier said than done, when he hires Sadie Harris to be a caretaker and housekeeper for her sister.

Trying to finalize her divorce with her abusive cop husband, Sadie Harris needs is a decent job to get keep custody of her son, and be independent and build a steady life with her son. Accepting a job as Dawson’s housekeeper has the town gossiping and her abusive ex becoming dangerous and evil.

It started a bit slow for me, but once the story got into the thick of things, the plot moved with great strides. Another wonderful story by Brenda Novak, of two people who find love amidst danger and gossip, who care for each other and courageous enough to defy threats and go to any lengths to keep each other out of harm’s way. This story questions our morals and opinions about life changing incidents, about giving people second chances, of being influenced by power and judgments, and of forgiveness and love.

A story that needs to be read to fully enjoy it’s content. And when Elijah, Gavin and Aiyana make an appearance that is just the sweetest icing on the cake!

Brenda Novak’s latest release “Finding Our Forever”, is a an emotional journey of revelation and family, love and support as Cora Kelly tries to settle into the life of the New Horizons Boys Ranch as an art teacher. But her motivation behind taking the job is to get to know her biological mother, and maybe get some answers to questions that had haunted her for a while.

FindingOurForever-BrendaNovak-Mar2017

The New Horizons Boys Ranch is Elijah Turner’s salvation and his adopted mother Aiyana is one person he would lay down his life for… unconditionally. Getting over a traumatic past and using those experiences as lessons, Elijah is driven to helping troubled teenagers get a second chance at life. The ranch is his life yet, when Cora comes aboard, he cannot deny his interest or the spark of attraction.

What started off as a behind the doors affair soon sees the light of the day, and Cora’s guarded secret only makes it more complicated. But Elijah being the sensitive and understanding guy of the hour, he may be the one to smooth things over, helping Cora confront her past and make a future together.

“Finding Our Forever” is a story of forgiveness and acceptance, regrets and redemption, love and support as each Brenda Novak starts off the Silver Springs series with an emotional love story. Elijah and Cora make a truly wonderful couple as they try to make their relationship work with patience, understanding and trust.

Brenda Novak’s “Whiskey Creek Series” has been and is one of the most coveted reads, full of small town charm. Residents with warmth and support fill Whiskey Creek. There are stories of romance and love to be told, regrets and redemptions to be faced and support and friendships to be fulfilled.

DiscoveringYou-WhiskeyCreek#10

The Amos brothers have had it rough with a father coming out of prison and taking residence with them. Yet they have managed to beat odds to make a positive life for themselves. And they have found love to keep them in line and give them a purpose to life.

“Discovering You” is a revelation of attraction between Rod Amos and India Sommers. They share a similar past of wild life and insecurities that seem to forge a bond between them. India Sommers moves to Whiskey Creek to make a fresh start for herself and her daughter. Rod Amos is working hard to leave behind a tragic past and move past the judging eyes of the town.

Two lost souls come together to test the waters of attraction, two people want to protect each other from their painful pasts, and two wonderful people will do anything to make sure no one gets hurt.

“Discovering You” is another wonderful story of love and caring, family and loyalty, support and solidarity. And Brenda Novak gives India and Rod another chance at love and redemption as they overcome the dangers of the past and put behind the guilt to look forward to a future together.

 

Brenda Novak is one brilliant writer/author I have the pleasure of reading. She’s a maestro at weaving heartfelt romances with tasteful flavor and with equal vigor she churns some amazing mysteries that grips her readers from page one to the very last line.

“The Secret Sister”, book one of her Fairham Island series brings Maisey Lazarow back to her hometown of Fairham, SC. Reeling from a bitter divorce, Maisey comes back to build her shattered life back and rebuild her relationship with her troubled brother Keith. Coming back also brings back memories of pain and a mother that she wants to avoid. Coming back also puts her in front of Rafe Romero, her first love.

TheSecretSister-Aug2015-BrendaNovak

Rafe Romero comes back to the island to heal and raise his blind daughter. He’s built his life back, albeit a few scars and pain. Coming face to face with Maisey brings up a whole bucket load of emotions that he’s not ready to face. But with him renovating the cottage and living next door to Maisey only makes so much more difficult to stay away from her.

With Rafe and Maisey thrown together, rekindles feelings long buried and the possibility of love and forgiveness. As they try to deal with their feelings, Brenda surprises us with a twist in the story as old pictures bring back memories of a sister that Maisey vaguely seem to remember.

And now with mystery added into the equation, “The Secret Sister” takes the readers on a roller coaster ride of pain, love and forgiveness.

I can’t wait for Brenda Novak to give Keith his closure on pain and a chance at love.
