JILTED
Mira Australia, June 2012

She left him at the altar, but her heart was always his...
After more than ten years away, Australian soap star Ellie Hughes returns to the small country town of Hope Junction, determined to remain anonymous while caring for her injured godmother, Matilda.

But word spreads fast in the tight-knit community. It isn't long before the people of Hope's are gossiping about the real reason for Ellie's visit and why she broke the heart of golden boy Flynn Quartermaine all those years ago.

Soon Ellie and Flynn are thrown back together again, forced to deal with the unresolved emotions between them. For Ellie is not the only one with secrets. Flynn has his own demons to battle, and Matilda is hiding something from her much-loved goddaughter.

When all is uncovered, can the ill-fated lovers overcome the wounds of their past? Or is Flynn destined to be jilted again?
 
"Now that's what I'm talking about. You want really good Aussie outback romance? Jilted is the book to read." - Kate Cuthbert, Romance reviewer

"I really can't fault Jilted - I was drawn in by the emotional experience of the characters, their internal conflicts seemed very real and I think they were overcome in a natural, realistic way. If you haven't picked up one of the many rural lit novels on the market yet, then perhaps you should start with Rachael Johns! A tear-jerking, moving love story set in a small country town, bound to have you anxiously awaiting another title by this Australian author." - Jayne Fordham @ Australian Bookshelf

"I expected cute and fun. I did not expect deeply emotional, beautiful, and so well-written that I could feel my pulse rate raise and lower as the story had its highs and lows. This book has everything." - Christi Snow @ Smitten By Reading

"Jilted by author Rachel Johns was amazing, this book reeled me in from get go. The writing was flawless and the way book started out was pretty unique. I liked the buildup to Ellie and Flynn finally running into each other literally 10 year after Ellie had jilted Flynn at the alter with out a word or an explanation, this is where the story takes off." - Sara @ Harlequin Junkie

"A rare species-an outback romance that fits squarely into the romance genre without losing its character. The setting is familiar but not intrusive, and the story navigates some very emotional territory." - Kat @ Book Thingo
