About the Book:
Dale Winters rode in the great charge at Beersheba in the final months of The Great War and has never forgiven himself for surviving. His younger brother did not. As a result, guilt-ridden, Dale gives up the passion in his life – horses. If his brother could no longer ride the animals he loved so much, then neither would he. A shattered man, Dale returns to his home in Western Australia.
Emily Castle, late of Arizona, inherited one-half of the Castle Winters Sheep Station in Western Australia when her Uncle Charles passed away. For years, through his letters, her uncle had regaled Emily with tales of the exploits of the boys he had fostered. With a heart full of hope and happiness, she moves to her new home and an inevitable meeting with the amazing and adventurous Dale Winters.
But the man who comes home from the war is not the one she envisioned in her dreams. Broken promises and a vow made to a dead man have stolen away his joy of life. Then Emily wagers her share of the station, and herself, on a horse race and becomes unable to ride. Will Dale learn, before it’s too late, that some promises are meant to be broken?

Praise for The Lighthorseman:
4 1/2 Stars - GOLD Phenomenal - In a class by itself....
"The characters in this glorious saga are complex, fascinating and often reflect the desolate backdrop of the surrounding territory. Jones' story of love, loyalty and honor is nicely sprinkled with humor. SENSUAL."
~ Romantic Times BOOKclub Magazine
"This [The Lighthorseman] was an amazing story. Ms. Jones' lyrical prose will place the reader in the desert of Palestine or the outback of Western Australia. Ms. Jones is an author to watch."
~ Kristi Ahlers, Independent Reviewer
"This historical tale with a supporting romantic subplot is a timely terrific look at the human cost of war based on a real unit and their famous charge (see the movie The Lighthorsemen for more insight). This gripping character driven tale takes no prisoners as to who truly sacrifices vs. who patriotically calls for others to sacrifice through the anguish of the battle fatigue syndrome protagonist. Only the patience and nurturing of a loved one can provide solace and even that may not be enough."
~ Harriet Klausner, Independent Reviewer
"The Lighthorseman is a tale that pulls at the heartstrings and one I recommend."
~ Romance Reviews Today
"Ms. Jones has written characters that are multi-dimensional and engaging. The story is fast paced and fun while at times heart-wrenching... I would recommend The Lighthorseman to all fans of historical romances with great characters, a wonderful story and a truly interesting setting."
~ The Romance Readers Connection
"The Lighthorseman is a very moving story. With Dale's and Emily's emotions so vividly depicted, my heart went out to them. Emily is just darling. She is a true savior for Dale and Dale is an honorable passionate man. Their relationship grows beautifully and sensually throughout the story until it's tender conclusion. I was very moved by The Lighthorseman. It is a dramatic story with two wonderful characters."
~ Nannette, Joyfully Reviewed
