An Ostrich A Day
When she learns that her uncle, Ike, left her a ranch in his will, Blaire Mackenzie travels to Arizona, only to find, to her horror, that the ranch is populated by ostriches, not cows. And, despite her determination to make a good impression on the staff, Blaire can’t seem to do anything right. From falling on her face to having her hair pulled by the ostriches, she gives everyone reason to laugh.
Ranch manager, Burke Dunham, finds himself laughing with Blaire one minute and fuming at her the next. He struggles with anger whenever Blaire mentions selling the ranch and moving back to the city. Burke knows how much effort Ike put into building his dream–and wonders why any man would trust that work to a woman.
In spite of her rough start, Blaire begins to enjoy the peace and quiet of the desert, and Burke finds himself learning to trust her. Can Blaire find contentment on an ostrich ranch? Can she put a bad relationship behind her and accept her growing love for Burke? Will Burke overcome his past and give his pain to God?

Thor Larsen has had his share of deceit. Owning a large, successful company has brought him much unwanted attention from ill-intentioned women. Now, his secret is safe, and he lives as a simple backwoods guide. His heart is as remote as the untamed wilderness he loves. But when their paths cross, both Jazmyn and Thor must come to terms with their past, in order to allow the Lord to work in their future.
