From debut author Mary Brock Jones comes a sweeping historical romance about growing up and getting what you really need, set against the harsh landscape of the New Zealand gold fields.

Newly arrived on the Otago Goldfields of 1863, a young Englishwoman is caught between two men: the younger brother who needs her and the man who loves her.

The goldfields are rough and dangerous, especially for a woman, but Nessa's brother Philip, like all miners, hopes to makes his fortune, and her place is by his side. But the fields hold more than a few surprises, including the acquaintance of Mr John Reid, a local run holder who comes to their aid.

John Reid takes one look at Nessa Ward and knows that he wants her – in his home, in his bed, in his life – but she is hell–bent on putting her brother's needs before her own. All he can do is protect her as best he can, and never give up hope that she will return his love.

About the Author

Mary Brock Jones lives in New Zealand, but loves nothing more than to escape into the other worlds in her head, to write science
fiction and historical romances. Sedate office worker by day; frantic scribbler by night.

Her parents introduced her to libraries and gave her a farm to play on, where trees became rocket ships and rocky outcrops were
ancient fortresses. She grew up writing, filling pages of notebooks and filling her head with stories, but took a number of detours on
the pathway to her dream job. Four grown sons, more than one house renovated and various jobs later, her wish came true.

Her books have made the finals list for the Romance Writers of Australia RUBY awards, the RWNZ KORU awards, and the RWNZ
Clendon awards.
