What would you give to be free?
Georgiana da Silva is catapulted out of the Victorian drawing rooms and into a world of danger when she escapes her fiendish fiancé to engage in a mad dash across the world to save her brother before an unknown assassin can find him. Meanwhile, Captain Harry Trent is setting sail for New Zealand. With a mission to complete and the law on his heels, he’s got enough trouble of his own without further complications. Thrown together, unable to trust anyone, Georgiana and Harry are intent on fulfilling their missions despite the distractions of the other. But liberty comes at a price and the closer they get, the more they must question the true cost of being free.

Editorial Reviews

Historical Novels Review
Bell has plotted a very successful romantic adventure... Georgiana is a lively, likeable heroine who is given a social insecurity that adds a touch of depth to the character. Bell skilfully uses her unusual circus/acting background to advance the twists and turns of the corkscrew plot involving the opium trade, a gold rush, lost heirs, murder and other bits of skulduggery.
The Bookbag
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, with its heady mix of romance and adventure, with plenty of twists in the tale. The love story was very sweet and the tantalising 'Will they, won’t they?' aspect of the tale showed how adept the author is at playing with the emotions of her readers.

ZANA BELL grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe and studied English Literature at the University of Cape Town. After travelling for several years doing a wide range of jobs, she immigrated to New Zealand where she now lives with her family and cats in a small harborside community. She began writing, just for the fun of seeing whether she could actually complete a novel and immediately became hooked. Research is her primary love and writing gives her an excellent excuse to be obsessive or just plain nosey. She enjoys writing in a variety of genres but has a particular fondness for all things historical.
