An innocent beauty Hannah Burnes has spent six months in hiding from a past that is relentlessly chasing her down. With no-one to trust, alone she must find a way to prove her innocence and free her brother from a framed conviction. Wealthy detective Deklin Routh, with a heart of a hero, knows what he wants in life, until he finds it he is more than happy to remain a bachelor. A chance meeting forces Hannah and Deklin’s worlds to collide but can Hannah accept the help that the sexy detective is offering? Can she trust him with her life and that of her brothers? Together, they must move quick to find the evidence needed to put the real killer behind bars, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the search becomes. Minute by minute as they race closer to justice Hannah begins to question whether she can trust Deklin with her most guarded possession. . . . her heart.
The love of books was bred into me as a child and now as an adult nothing has changed. One day with the encouragement from my husband Sidney I decided to stop daydreaming and pick up the pen, beginning my first novel with the hope of one day publishing my own intriguing stories. I live in Yeppoon, a beautiful relaxed coastal town in Central Queensland Australia situated off the Great Barrier Reef with my husband and four boys. When I am not writing or running about after my energetic boys I love to read, go to the beach or take the family on camping trips.
