Author: A. Coenraad
From a dark and twisted upbringing, Jessica Hardy schemed and plotted to become rich and powerful, no matter what the cost, but her plans, almost at fruition, came unstuck because of her half-brother’s fractured grip on reality. This story reflects on the instant attraction that two people experience when fate brings them together due to bizarre circumstances involving kidnapping and greed. Although they come from different worlds, they find an undeniable connection that would be tested to its limits.
Born in Brisbane and spending her life in Queensland, A. Coenraad has always had a fertile imagination and had dreamed of becoming a full time author. Growing up, her mother always said she should write fiction as some of her colourful tales, mostly conjured up to escape discipline, truly astounded her. Graduating from short stories and novellas, the dream has been realised with this, her first novel.
