A love story. With animals.

When's the last time you fell in love with a baby rhino?

An uplifting and inspiring story of animal rescue that will warm your heart.

Renny Kudrow, Director of the Kihali animal orphanage in Africa, and Starlite Higgins, the orphanage's wildlife vet, fall in love with a beautiful baby rhino named Zuri but not--they think--with each other.

Lanky, dark-haired Renny Kudrow, Director of the Kihali Animal Orphanage in Kenya, is a brilliant scientist, a noted television personality, and an expert in animal communication. But human communication?

Not so much, thinks Starlite Higgins, the talented young vet he has hired over the objection of others. He is remote and critical, and Starlite, anxious to please and accustomed to success, is unable to win his approval.

When Renny and Starlite set out on a dangerous mission, they rescue an injured baby rhino whose mother has been killed by poachers. Upon their return to Kihali, Renny and Starlite must work together to save the irresistible little orphan.

Under their tender and expert care, Zuri recovers physically and psychologically. She becomes a local celebrity adored by her human and animal friends while Renny and Starlite find an unexpected second chance at love.

A KISS AT KIHALI is a "memorable" read that will appeal to readers who enjoy clean romance and who care about the environment and the noble efforts of those who work to guarantee the future of endangered species.

(A KISS AT KIHALI contains no sex or cursing.)

When was the last time you fell in love with a baby rhino?

So chic in her red blanket!


  1. Hi Ruth - The story sounds so inspiring ... I love it - saving wildlife and their environment is so important ... I'd love to read your book ... cheers Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary—Rhinos—like elephants—face extinction. Horns and tusks are worth more than gold and the illicit trade in wildlife is 3rd only to drugs and weapons. If we don't work to save them now, they will be gone forever, lost to greed and stupidity. I hope you enjoy A KISS AT KIHALI! :-)
