A Fractured Land

by: Melissa A. Volker

Left with a huge debt by her runaway ex-husband, Lexi Taylor is out of money and out of luck. In search of a new beginning and determined to be on her own, she moves back home to sleepy Graaff Reinet to run the inn at Apricot Farm. Free of the problems of her old life, Lexi finally feels she’s getting back on track—until American Carter O’Brien arrives in town.

South Africa is a long way from his home in Texas, but it’s the fresh start Carter needs—and his last chance. A former musician and the wayward son of an oil industry tycoon, he has been sent to the Karoo Basin to search for shale gas, and is expected to succeed. Harboring some serious mistakes in his past with his work and his ex, Carter can’t afford any distractions, no matter how beautiful.

Carter was prepared for potential problems—fracking protests, angry farmers, violent resistance to his presence—but fighting his attraction to Lexi wasn’t one of them. But as Lexi gets drawn in to Carter’s work and his life, the pair must confront danger from an unknown enemy in the Karoo . . . and from their own hearts.

Melissa Volker was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, to an American mother and a South African father. She is a reader, writer, blogger, recycler, and an anxious stand up paddler.  While taking a break from a career in beauty therapy, she studied creative writing.  She now writes romantic environmental fiction, blogs about writing and surfing, and occasionally writes for surf websites. She lives in Cape Town, on the warmer, False Bay side, where the white sharks are numerous.  When not writing, she surfs her stand up paddle board and does her best to avoid the sharks. When the writing is done and the wind is onshore, she works as a beauty and massage therapist in her studio. She shares her home with a patient husband, two smart daughters and a very naughty Burmilla cat.   Melissa A.
