A ranch owner in Texas Hill Country, a horse trainer, and a romance for the ages... Dwayne Carver is set to inherit his family´s ranch in the heart of Texas Hill Country, which would be great if his first love wasn´t raising and training horses. In order to keep up with his ranch duties and fulfill his dreams of owning a horse farm, he hires top trainer Felicity Lightburne. Felicity, wracked with grief over the death of her father, can´t stand to stay on her family farm anymore, so she takes the job at Grape Seed Ranch sight unseen. She shows up in her red mustang only to be confronted by three wild bulls who´ve broken free. When Dwayne intervenes, she´s smitten. It doesn´t matter that he´s her boss, or that she dunked him in the small-town Texas festival the day before, or that he has tremors in his right arm from a military injury. They get along great, and she can envision herself on this new farm - at least until her mother falls ill and she has to return to help her. Then she realizes that the ranch wife life isn´t one she particularly wants. And it´s all Dwayne has to offer her. Can Dwayne and Felicity work through their differences to find their happily-ever-after?

A few hundred years ago, Cascadia Island didn´t even exist. Like the Washington seacoast, it was rock submerged beneath the Pacific. A massive earthquake changed that, exploding the rock upward, making it land - unstable land, according to seismologist Dr. Doug Lam.Lam has spent years researching the Cascadia Subduction Zone. He published a theory that the unrelieved tectonic strain beneath the idyllic landscape of Cascadia Island could be triggered with modern construction processes - with catastrophic results. The paper was disregarded, even ridiculed, by his peers and by mega wealthy developer Mick Walker, who stands to earn millions from the construction of a luxury resort on Cascadia. The elegant casino, hotel, and convention center will reap millions for him even if the tiny island only lasts for a short time...When a series of earthquakes begins to shake the Northwest Corridor, Doug´s worst fears are confirmed. In an attempt to convince Walker to evacuate Cascadia immediately, Doug hurries to join guests arriving for the resort´s grand opening. As the tremors wreak havoc across the Northwest coastal area, the military is left with too few resources to assist the people on Cascadia. Convinced that the island will be in ruins within hours, Doug reluctantly calls upon his girlfriend, Jennifer Lindstrom, president of Nightingale Aviation - a major medical transport helicopter company - for help.With snow falling, visibility dropping, and winds increasing, Doug embarks on an impossible mission with Jennifer and Nightingale´s helicopters to evacuate over 300 people, while smaller earthquakes continue to herald the approach of a catastrophic tsunami.John J. Nance hurtles readers along a nail-biting quest to rescue hundreds of stranded vacationers and resort staff. Meticulously researched, and with the signature authenticity only a veteran pilot could provide, Saving Cascadia is a hair-raising thriller of awesome magnitude. 1. Language: English.
