Title: Unexpected 

Series: Summer Ranch Book 1 

Authors: Ana Balen and Allora Ryan 

Genre: Small Town Romance







Life didn’t turn out how Addelyn Black thought it would. Being a single mom to a five-year-old is not something girls dream about. She wouldn’t change it for the world. But one thing was missing, and she didn’t expect to find it in the shape of Jesse Summers.


Jesse Summers has everything he ever wanted. At thirty-five he owns his own Ranch, a loving family and lives in the most beautiful place in the world. There’s only one thing missing. It took him a long time to finally see what was staring him right in the face.

They say, the best things that happen are unplanned. And to always expect the unexpected. Could this be true for Addelyn and Jesse? Or is it all just Decorah magic?

Ana Balen was born in Zagreb, Croatia, where she still lives with her husband, their son (read boss!) and the son’s pet rabbit named Shhh! (or some other gibberish that’s the favorite of their son for the day.)
She spends her days driving her husband up the wall (when he can’t get her ass up from the bed in the mornings), reading and daydreaming, or following orders from a three-year-old. In the hectic life she leads (and loves every second of it), she never thought about writing. But, then one day a name popped in her head, then, the snippets of things, and she sat down and started typing. Next thing, she wrote a book. And now, she’s about to release her seventh!


Hi, I’m Allora, and if you haven’t noticed already, I am a romance author! I am new to the book world and Unexpected is my first book and it’s co-written with author Ana Balen. I come from the north side of Dublin’s Inner city, I have children and I enjoy long walks on the beach where I get a lot of ideas for my stories. Thanks for visiting!
