 Ben Fitzgerald knows all about battling demons. He was an alcoholic at the age of seventeen…

Through sheer hard work and determination, he’s managed to put his past behind him and is now a successful lawyer at Sydney Legal. The law firm has an enviable reputation and Ben prides himself for being willing to fight for people the world has given up on. When he discovers nursing students are graduating from Richmond University without the ability to properly read English, he doesn’t think twice about taking action, despite the enormity of the claim.

When Ben runs into an old flame who is now employed at his law firm, his world is turned on its end. Ben hasn’t seen Abby Brown since they were teenagers. She’s one of the few people who know about his past. They were young lovers with a dependence upon drugs and alcohol, living on the streets.

Concerned she might reveal his secret and struggling with an attraction to Abby he doesn’t seem able to control, Ben is determined to avoid her at all costs. He’s worked hard to secure his comfortable position at Sydney Legal. He refuses to allow anyone to jeopardize it.

In an effort to distract himself, Ben files a lawsuit against Richmond University. As far as he’s concerned, the college bigwigs are failing in their duty of care – to their nursing students who have paid handsomely for the privilege of their degree and to the patients who will ultimately receive their attention. An error made while reading a medication chart could prove fatal – in fact, it already has.

Then Ben discovers Abby’s brother is the head of the nursing department at Richmond University. Jeff Brown is directly in the path of Ben’s missile. Will he listen to Abby’s pleas for mercy on behalf of her brother, or will Ben do what he must and destroy the man’s career?

Will Abby ever forgive him if he does? Will he forgive himself if he doesn’t…?

 Isobel Donnelly has a perfect life. Married to a renowned orthopedic surgeon, she also has a successful and satisfying career as a pediatric nurse at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Life couldn’t get any better.

But then her babies arrive and the husband she adores turns into a cold and angry stranger. Her perfect world is shattered the first night he hits her.

Now, she’s trapped in a violent marriage with nowhere to turn. Her husband has threatened to kill her and the kids if she ever dares to leave. In public, they’re the perfect couple, but inside, she’s slowly dying… 

Mason Alexander has relocated to the city to take up his dream job as a pediatric doctor at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Recovering from a failed marriage, he’s determined to put the change of scene to good use. The distractions and demands of his new job are just what he needs to get his life back on track.

Then he runs into Isobel Donnelly and his world is once again turned upside down. He’s loved her since they were children. She’s the reason his marriage failed. But Isobel’s still married to his nemesis: the incomparable Nigel Donnelly. From all accounts, the two of them are still blissfully in love.

Vowing to steer clear of the woman who’s haunted his dreams for far too many years, Mason does his best to avoid her, but Isobel continues to seek him out and he can’t help but notice her assurances about her happy marriage appear a little forced.

When she arrives at work with a blackened eye, he’s immediately suspicious: There’s no way she fell over toys left in the way. The thought that Nigel might be abusing her is abhorrent, but the signs are there for all to see. 

Will Mason be able to convince her to leave her husband…or will they both die trying?
