ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Aspen Crossroads

Title:  Aspen Crossroads
Series:  A Whisper Canyon Romance #1
Author:  Janine Rosche
Publisher:  Berkley Books
Release Date:  August 24, 2021
Genre:  Western Romance

To protect those most vulnerable, Haven Haviland must trust her heart–and her regrets–to a mysterious newcomer in this moving contemporary romance. 

Few in the community of Whisper Canyon have actually met Jace Daring, a handsome recluse who lives at Aspen Crossroads, the farm at the edge of town. But that doesn’t stop the rumors about the multiple women who live with him. He must protect the truth–that his farm-to-table restaurant will provide new livelihoods for women rescued from human trafficking–or he risks the safety and futures of those relying on him. But he can’t do it alone. 

Haven Haviland has always been everyone’s safe place to fall until one mistake closes her counseling practice and leaves her open to the town’s gossip. Trusting men has gotten her in trouble before. However, accepting Jace’s job offer to mentor the rescued women seems like the perfect way to right her wrongs. 

When the mayor’s campaign to clean up Whisper Canyon targets Aspen Crossroads, the restaurant comes under fire, dangers from the women’s pasts are awakened, and Haven’s sins are exposed for all to see. Jace would sacrifice himself to save Haven and the women under his care, but his efforts might not be enough. And in the end, it might not be the women most in need of saving after all.

EXCERPT:

Haven placed the chick in his hands, his rough skin catching slightly on hers. Following her father's advice, she looked the man straight in the eye to let him know she could hold her own. Not that the guidance had worked for her so far. Here she was, unemployed with no job prospects, covered in salmonella, and debating custody arrangements for a chicken.

"Thanks, miss. I'll take good care of her."

"Audrey."

His forehead wrinkled. "Thanks, Audrey."

"No, I'm not Audrey. The chick is Audrey. Hepburn."

Confusion turned to amusement. "How about Audrey Henburn?" His eyes pierced hers. She couldn't tell their color in this light, but they crinkled at the corners and warmed her straight through. An image of the two of them sitting beneath a tree as the chicks hopped around their legs appeared in her head, but she quickly dismissed it. Her judgment, or lack thereof, was troublesome these days. A man, especially one like this, was the last thing she needed.

"That'll do." She stepped away from him and searched for words as he loaded Audrey into the box with the others. "Make sure the others are nice to her."

"I have a strict no-bullying policy in my coop. I even have a friend that knits sweaters for them. Audrey will get the nicest one."

The reality of his words jabbed Haven right in the gut. "Tell your friend to make Audrey a pretty black one. Maybe add a string of pearls."

"Will do." He had a great smile.

Haven spun on her heels and ducked out of the tent before she made more of a mess in her life.
