The From Kenya, With Love Series

From the moment I began writing the first book in this series, The Promise of Rain, I knew that I’d be returning to Kenya’s Serengeti. There’s a magnificence and warmth about the Serengeti…an overwhelming, awe-inspiring power…a raw beauty. But it wasn’t only the setting that drew me in and brought back memories of the years I spent as a child in Africa, it was the characters who I grew to love and understand. It all came from the heart. Every word.

These individuals…from my heroes and heroines to the secondary—yet impactful—characters in the series…all embraced something greater than they were. They gave of themselves and faced the odds, making them stronger. They inspired me in a very real way. Because of what I unearthed in writing these books and because I couldn’t turn my back on any of it, I fostered an orphaned elephant in Kenya this year.

All three books in my ‘From Kenya, With Love’ series center around themes of love and family…and finding both when and where it’s least expected…and most needed. The first book in the series also paralleled the importance of family and loss of loved ones with the heartbreaking losses suffered by elephants at the hands of poachers. The second, After the Silence, dealt with grief and bridged the gap between two different cultures and countries…showing that love has no boundaries. 

I knew when I wrote The Promise of Rain that the rugged, Indiana-Jones-like, Serengeti bush-pilot, who was devoted to helping search for and rescue wildlife, would need his happily ever after. I can assure you that, at that time, Mac Walker had absolutely no idea that his future would bring shared custody of his orphaned teen nephew and his sister-in-law…a woman who always played it safe and hated his risk-taking ways. But what Tessa Henning discovers will endanger them all and change her forever.

Like I said, finding love and family in the wilds of Africa. Get swept away by the unexpected!

This third book in the series, Through the Storm, brings us back to the stunning Serengeti and, in a more adventurous, romantic suspense way, tackles the dangerous world of illegal ivory trade and brings us back to the plight of the elephant. And of course, through that storm, the characters discover their inner strength, family and true love.

Many thanks to all of my wonderful, supportive readers! May you always be inspired and surrounded by love.

The biggest risk she'll ever take…

Tessa Henning is no damsel. But she's definitely in distress. If her husband really is involved in the ivory trade, he'll come after her when he finds out what she's uncovered. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Mac Walker. Stubborn, fiercely independent, danger-loving bush pilot Mac Walker—with whom she shares custody of their orphaned nephew. Though Mac's no knight in shining armor, he can keep her and their nephew safe in the Serengeti while they wait out this storm. But he can't protect Tessa from the strange weather brewing inside her, stirring up feelings for Mac she wishes she could ignore.

Does following her passion mean losing her way?

Marine Ben Corallis is an expert at facing death, but nothing comes close to the terror that grounds him when his wife is killed in a car accident the day he returns from duty. He's left to raise an infant, a toddler and a ten-year-old girl who hasn't uttered a word since her mother's death.

It's hard not to care for the widowed marine with three young children. Yet he's still grieving, too burdened with guilt to fall in love again. And Hope Alwanga's future as a doctor awaits her on the other side of the world, in Nairobi. If two such opposites can't agree on a common country, how can they ever create a safe place to call home?



After a childhood enriched with exotic travels and adventures (both in books and real life), USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Rula Sinara is now settled in rural Virginia with her husband, three boys and crazy but endearing pets. When she's not writing, she's busy attracting wildlife to her yard, watching romantic movies or researching trees on her garden wish list.

In addition to being a coffee addict, she's also a 2015 HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner, a 2014 National Reader's Choice Award winner and double finalist, a 2015 Golden Quill Award Runner Up and a 2015 Book Buyers Best third place recipient.

  1. What an interesting place to have grown up. And, how do you foster an orphaned elephant? I have always wanted to go to Africa but I don't have the money to go. Maybe I can dream of it while reading your books. Sadly, my sister was killed in a plane crash in Nairobi many years ago when she was only 32. She was on a safari hop. This was a wonderful review.

    1. Linda, I'm so very sorry to hear about your sister. Something similar does happen to the heroine in this book. Hugs!

      As for fostering...The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has a page on their website where you can foster. It includes a list of all their orphans, from infants to teens, and their individual stories. Once you foster (donate to the elephant's care), they send you a certificate and updates from the keeper's diary. I also follow them on social media to keep updated.

      I was so excited to hear, just a few days ago, that Obama put a near complete ban on all ivory trade.
