Read the first two chapters.

New South Wales, 1885

When Alice Ryan wakes to find thugs surrounding her cottage, on the hunt for her no-good brother, she escapes into the surrounding bush.

It is wealthy landowner Robert Farrer who finds her the next morning, dishevelled, injured, and utterly unwilling to share what she knows. With criminals on the loose and rumours that reckless bushrangers have returned to the area, Robert is determined to keep Alice out of danger, and insists on taking her into his home-despite the scandal it may cause. Convincing her to stay on with him for her own safety, however, is going to take some work.

What Robert doesn’t expect is his growing attraction to the forthright, unruly woman staying in his home. Before either of them can settle into their odd new situation, their home and wellbeing come under threat and they will need to trust each other to survive. But they are both keeping secrets, secrets that have the potential to ruin their burgeoning love, their livelihood … and their lives.

New Contract – Signed!

It seems the Harlequin team is in a hurry to get things done before the holidays hit. I was told to expect a six-week wait for my contract to arrive. Instead, I received it two days after I signed the deal!

It’s always a good feeling when – after so much work – you get to sign something with such a great publisher’s name on it.

What a great Christmas present. 🙂

As much cover information as I can share at the moment!

The first lesson any author learns about publishing is that you’ll go weeks without hearing from anyone – and then you’ll hear from everyone at once.

It’s been a busy twenty-four hours, with a tentative title for my next book decided on (I’ll share it when I know for certain what it is), and the information for my cover designer submitted.

So, I thought I’d share a few pieces of information about the next book:

 

  • It will be out in March 2020.

  • You haven’t met the hero yet.

 

  • The story begins in September of 1887, which is two years after the first book ended.

 

  • There is more engagement with the Indigenous community than in book one.

 

I actually didn’t set out to write a trilogy. However, after I got working on the first one I realised there were other characters whose stories were unfinished. “Second Book Syndrome” is a term in the publishing world to imply the second one is the hardest. I’ll see how I go!
