Overview

When her attempt to thwart a gang of international artefact thieves goes horribly wrong, curator of the Katherine Bay Art Gallery, Ashlyn Mullein barely escapes with her life...
she never factored in being caught...
Snatched from the clutches of a sadistic gangster, in a dark alley in the dead of night by Jace Mullein, Ashlyn decides he's the lesser of two evils...and flees with Jace, hiding out in the rugged ranges of the Coromandel...

In a ruthless gangster's sights, cut off by her wealthy high achieving family, Ashlyn accepts Jace's offer...he'll be her bodyguard twenty-four-seven—if she marries him... a two edged sword as she's thrust into the midst of the baffling undercurrents within the dynamics of Jace's dysfunctional family...

Ashlyn quickly learns to trust Jace to protect her from her demanding family and an ever increasing danger... Then, in one horrifying moment she learns about Jace's past... it's too late for her to retreat, but now she is forced to question everything about the man she has come to love.

Does she mean anything to him at all? Or is Jace using her only to exact a twisted revenge for past slights?

Meet the Author

I have lived in New Zealand’s beautiful farming country all my life. After growing up in rural South Auckland I married Martin, and together we’ve farmed sheep, cattle, dairy cows and run a kiwifruit orchard. This rural lifestyle provides a rich source of settings and inspiration for my stories.

For many years we’ve been based in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region – an area famed for productive land, generous rainfall, beautiful beaches, abundant seafood and lush verdant growth.

The Bay, stretching from East Cape to the tip of the Coromandel Peninsular, was named by Captain James Cook in the 1700′s when local Maori tribes provided his crew with food and hospitality, a trait that persists among its inhabitants to this day.

An ardent fan of romance, I love exploring human hopes and frailties, aspirations, love and laughter. Why Romance? To me, first and last, family matters. And Romance is all about reaffirming and celebrating family values.

I enjoy reading and writing about people who overcome adversity and commit to a relationship. I firmly believe there are romance heroes because I have one at home.

As a mother of five, sister to six siblings, and aunt to twenty (and that’s only on my side of the family) I know that the best things in life never come easy. Intimate experience of grief and anguish of life’s trials and the joy of overcoming tragedy shine through in my emotionally gripping novels.

Writing has always been a major part of my life. For years I wrote a Country Comment column for The New Zealand Herald and freelanced on local and regional newspapers in the Bay. Years living in small towns with all their joys, trials and tribulations add an extra dimension to stories.

    Wonderful

    Couldnt put it down! There was never a dull moment while reading this. Hope to read more like this. It cost me a night of sleep, but was worth it! I want to thank BN for having so many free and inexpensive books for us (seniors) to be able to read. I have had very few free or less than 3.99 books that I didnt enjoy. I usually limit my purchases to 3.99 or less because of my fixed income. If I read one of a series that is really good, sometimes I will go a little higher, but if not for BN and the kind authors, I would not be able to read nearly as much. I spend lots of my time searching for free books. To come upon one as good as this is not uncommon. Thanks a lot. J A F
