Overview

From the multi-award-winning Australian Author, Anne Rouen, comes her third Australian Outback Romantic Suspense novel set in Western Queensland in the 1990s.

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************Secrets of the Rock picks up from award-winning novel Winter at Medora Downs a decade down the track ...

After both her best friends found true love and moved on, Jo realised it was time she made the life-changing decision to resign from her thankless job and lonely life in Sydney and move to the far reaches of Western Queensland.

Following in the footsteps of her friend Sarah at Medora Downs, Jo takes up the job of governess on a neighbouring Outback station, Emerald Hills, and is delighted to discover her charge is a bright, gifted eight-year-old named William.

It's not only William who steals Jo's heart: the rugged beauty of the Outback landscape captivates her, and she soon discovers a secret hideaway at Rainbow Rock, perfect to put her love of painting into practice, and William's genius of geology to the test.

There's only one problem: Jo and William aren't the only ones in on the secrets of the rock. It holds many stories for many people-some beautiful, some frightening-and it doesn't take long before both its splendour and chaos rain down on Emerald Hills.

It is then that Jo finds herself enmeshed in the workings of an underground drug cartel and, at the same time, the magic of a surprise romance, not realising how dangerously entwined both secrets are.

Will the Secrets of the Rock bring true love or cost Jo her life?

About the Author

Anne Rouen—the nom de plume of Lynn Newberry—is the award-winning author behind the successful historical fiction series, Master of Illusion and, more recently, a set of standalone contemporary historical fiction romance and suspense novels set in the Australian Outback.

Lynn is a retired Australian country woman, currently living in the north-west region of New South Wales. A graduate of the University of New England, she is a former teacher, dressage rider and cattle breeder. A life on the land, including eleven years in Outback Queensland, has mixed nicely with her penchant for writing romantic suspense in historical settings.

More recently, Lynn exchanged her farm for a delightful small acreage on the edge of a village, where she writes full time. As horses and writing are her greatest passions, Lynn now embraces an idyllic lifestyle, since she has time to delve into the historical research she so loves.

Writing as Anne Rouen, Lynn self-published her historical romance/mystery series Master of Illusion with great success, winning four literary awards across the entire set. Book I (Master of Illusion Bk I) and Book III (Angel of Song) achieved Silver (2014) and Bronze (2016) respectively in the Global Ebook Awards for Modern Historical Literature Fiction. Book IV (Guardian Angel), the final in the series, was awarded Silver (2018) in the same category and Bronze (2018) for the Global Ebook Awards Best Ebook Cover.

Lynn has seen continued success with the Global Ebook Awards with her Australian Outback romance novels. In 2022 Winter at Medora Downs achieved a Gold Medal for the Best Ebook Cover, Silver for Best Suspense Fiction and Bronze for Best Modern Historical Literature Fiction in a contemporary setting. Wild Kingdom scooped the pool in the 2023 Global Ebook Awards with four gold medals (Best Ebook Cover, Best Historical Literature Fiction—Contemporary, Best Romance Fiction Historical, Best Western Fiction) and the prestigious Dan Poynter Legacy Award for Best of Fiction.

Lynn also achieved a Highly Commended in the 2011 Rolf Boldrewood Literary Awards for her short story The Scent of a Criminal and a Commended in the 2018 Thunderbolt Prize for Crime Fiction for The Min Min Light.
