The Rhino Fund Uganda was established with the aim of restoring extinct rhinos in Uganda’s wildlife. In 2005, the first breed of white rhinos was brought into Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, a private ranch donated by a well-wisher to act as a breeding site for the critically endangered species. Over the years the population of the rhinos has been slowly but steadily increasing, a visit to the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to see the invaluable creatures is worthwhile.

They roped him into leaving Arizona and taking on the job of getting a struggling ranch in North Carolina back on its feet. He didn’t expect it to be something beyond his ability. He also didn’t expect Rusty Blackhawk to be a woman. Or a witch. Rusty had no choice but to take the Russell’s offer and partner up with them. She had to hang onto her ranch, and this was the only way. She wasn’t expecting to like Clay Russell. She sure wasn’t expecting to want him. Neither of them expected the passion that would explode between them or the danger that would threaten their lives. They were both in for surprises. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mace Earl Finn.

It's a ranch in the middle of nowhere...where thoroughbred stallions stand at stud for breeding. Gina's husband Manny is thinking of investing in the place, but the studs that own the place seem more interested in Gina than any business deal. She and Manny want kids, but he's infertile and lost interest in sex. So, while Manny does his due diligence, she lets them take her hard and unprotected. It's satisfying, but then Gina learns that Manny has some specific ideas about breeding her to get an heir, and what proper breeding is really all about. PG excerpt:As she dressed, Gina thought about how weird it was to be in South America. The only time she’d ever had any thoughts about going to South America was when she saw news stories about the Carnival in Rio. And now she was in Argentina, and even stranger, on a horse ranch, miles from anything. She was a city girl, and this definitely was not a city. She stood and looked out the window and saw an open plain with some mountains shimmering in the distance. “Why are we here, Manny? Why a ranch?” He scowled. “To see the horses.” She laughed. Manny didn't care about horses. In fact, he didn't know shit about them, except that he seemed to have a way of knowing when the fix was in at a race. He liked going to races and usually won. “When did you start deciding you wanted to be around horses?” That earned her a snort of derision. “Never. I don’t want to be around them. It’s the business I’m interested in. Don Miguel and his sons know everything there is to know about these thoroughbred horses. He knows how to breed them and raise then. The good ones, the ones properly bred and cared for, are worth a fortune. He knows how to make sure the owner of expensive mares produce valuable offspring. So I'm interested." "If he knows all that, why would he want you involved?" Manny gave her a smug smile. "Because Don Miguel doesn’t know shit about running a business. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Butler.
