With the pristine beauty of the Whitsundays under threat, can they expose the truth in time?

Australian author Annie Seaton brings to life a new area of romance — Eco-Adventure. Perfect for fans of Di Morrissey.

When Olivia Sheridan arrives in the Whitsundays as spokesperson for big mining company Sheridan Corp, it should be a straightforward presentation to the town about their proposed project. But when a handsome local fisherman shows her what ecological impact the proposal will have, Olivia is forced to question her father's motives for the project.

Struggling with newly divided loyalties, Olivia is thrown further into turmoil when she is mistaken for a woman who disappeared more than sixty years before. When it becomes clear that Captain Jay is also keeping secrets, Olivia realises that there is more to these sunshine–soaked islands than she ever expected.

Seeking to uncover the truth, Olivia is drawn into a dangerous game where powerful businessmen will stop at nothing to ensure their plan goes ahead, even if that means eliminating her...

Against the epic Far North Queensland landscape, this is the story of two women, separated by history, drawn to Whitsunday Island where their futures will be changed forever.

About the author

Annie Seaton lives near the beach on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. Her career and studies have spanned the education sector for most of her working life, including a Masters Degree in Education, and working as an academic research librarian, a high school principal and a university tutor until she took early retirement and fulfilled a lifelong dream of a full-time writing career. Since 2014 Annie has been voted Author of the Year (2014) and Best Established Author (2015 and 2017) in the AusRom Today.com Reader's Choice Awards. In 2018 Whitsunday Dawn was voted Book of the Year by AusRom readers, and also finalled in the ARRA Romantic Suspense book of the year awards.

Each winter, Annie and her husband leave the beach to roam the remote areas of Australia for story ideas and research. In 2016 they visited the Undara lava tubes. The Undara lava tubes stretch for 160 kilometres—indeed Undara is an Aboriginal word for ‘a long way'. Ancient roof collapses have formed a network of caves where plants and wildlife thrive in unique ecosystems. This fascinating geological marvel inspired Undara, and the story of Emlyn Rees, and the Carlyle family.

“Into the Shadows feeds into that yen for the dark, damaged hero like catnip for felines.”  ~Dear Author

Rule #1: Don’t fall for your crime boss father’s favorite killer

NADIA fell for the most feared hitter on her late father’s payroll. Thorne’s a lost cause—as dangerous and damaged as they come, but she’s not sorry. Without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful boy.

Now Thorne’s burst back into her life after being gone for two years, arrogant and demanding, making himself right at home. She can’t let him figure out Benny is his…so she enlists a friend to play their son’s daddy.

THORNE knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer willing to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her way back when was the hardest thing he ever did, but it was the only way to protect her. Now his undercover mission has thrown them back together…and it drives him crazy to see her with another man…and another man’s baby.


"It's going to be hard for another book this year to impress me more than this one... Into the Shadows is suspenseful, gritty, violent, sexy - everything I want in a romantic suspense." ~Smexy Books 

"Wow. I loved this book! This is one of my best books of the year and has reminded me why Carolyn Crane is one of my favourite authors. With Into the Shadows she has crafted a book that was emotionally intense, full of action and hot as hell."  ~Under the Covers 

"This is one of those reviews in which I just want to tell you "buy it, read it, and thank me later", but I know that doesn't work with you greedy people. So let me tell you why you should follow my advice... Because this book will rock your socks off!"  ~The Bookaholic Cat
