THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD SAVE HER...

Special Forces agent Carter Rawlings was back--and Dani Marlow's world was spinning in his wake. The local arson attacks for which she was being blamed were only part of the problem. The feelings Carter's reappearance had ignited threatened far more dangerous territory--a past she tried to keep hidden, especially from him. With the trouble on her land and Carter's tantalizing presence, Dani had to think about her future. Did she want to keep avoiding the truth--that she loved Carter and wanted to make a life with him--or could she finally face the stakes head-on, deal with her enemies and seal her heart to that of the only man she's ever loved?

Meet the Author

Fiona Brand has been a bookaholic ever since she was old enough to turn pages, but she didn't begin writing until after the birth of her second child. She gave herself two years to get published. Five years and several rejections later, she finally sold her first book, Cullen's Bride, to Silhouette Intimate Moments.

Other than writing romance, Fiona considers her life to be "Joe Average" ordinary. Before the writing career, she spent eight years working for the New Zealand Forest Service, where she learned the true meaning of power --holding the keys to the stationery cupboard and controlling the petty cash.

When the power rush ended, she tried the other end of the spectrum--absolute slavery--and took up having children. When her youngest son turned three, she set about teaching herself the business of writing. She figured that after spending eight years as a clerk, she could spend at least that much time trying to get a novel published.

Fiona's always lived in the country, and presently resides in the Bay of Islands, a subtropical fishing and diving paradise, with her two sons. As for pets...so far there are two goldfish and a budgie, but with a change of location looming in the near future, at least two cats and a dog are planned as welcome additions to the family.

Because of the sheer isolation of New Zealand travel is always on the itinerary, especially with most of her family residing in other countries, but Fiona has found New Zealand hard to beat. She says it has all the extremes a writer could wish for, from rugged cowboy country and snow-covered alps to rainforest and white sandy beaches...and besides, it's home.

When she's not writingor doing normal household things (like cleaning the budgie's cage and the goldfish tank), Fiona likes to spend her spare time with her children or catching up with friends. Her leisure activities include reading, walking, cooking, gardening, watching movies with the family, protecting her laptop from game-hungry kids, and of course, shopping. She's thinking of starting a daytime tai chi class to get out of the house and mingle with "normal" people who have "lives," and periodically tries to meditate in search of the elusive silence within.

Unfortunately, she hasn't found that silence yet. Somehow there's always a grocery list in there, or a "feeling guilty because you haven't done this" list, or she gets hungry, or else a kid comes in.

You can write to Fiona, who would love to hear from you, at: Fiona Brand, PO Box 18240 Glen Innes, Auckland 1130, New Zealand.

    Disappointing!

    I anxiously awaited Carter's story expecting it to be in line with the stories about Ben McCabe and Gabriel West (both keepers)- what happened! Carter's character wasn't well developed (a waste of a stud muffin!) and there was very little romance. The story line was ok but I expected so much more. I'll be rereading the keepers!

    Not in line with rest of the series

    I was anxiously awaiting Carter Rawling's story to finish off Fiona Brands' Lombard-SAS series, but I was greatly disappointed by High-Stakes Bride. Fiona Brand wrote this book in a totally different style from the previous books about the SAS team (ie Gabriel West). It was as if the story was written to be submitted separately from the Lombard-SAS team stories but changed the character names to submit for the final story in the Lombard-SAS series. Few references were made to the former SAS team mates and she had none of her hot love scenes in the book (either that or my copy was defective), and she usually writes sceens that sizzle. The story itself is a good story and will keep you enthralled and guessing to the end, but as Carter Rawlings' story it just did not tie in very well to the previous stories in the series.
