He’s the one she can’t remember, she’s the one he can’t forget…

Tossed overboard, Ava Adams had been left for dead, drifting at sea. But security specialist Faisal Al-Nassar was determined to find her. He owed her father a great debt and had never forgotten the connection he and Ava had once shared. Yet after rescuing Ava he discovered she barely remembered him.

Amnesia had left Ava uncertain of who had tried to kill her. She did know, however, that Faisal was a man she could trust. The sheik’s embrace was familiar and enticing…and possibly even more dangerous. How could she succumb to feelings for her protector when what she didn’t know could get them both killed?

 Detective Sergeant Lachlan Coleridge has seen it all. A veteran cop currently stationed in the rural town of Moree, there’s nothing much that surprises him. But when two children are burned to death during an explosion in an illegal meth lab, he struggles to put the memory behind him. In desperation, he seeks counseling.

 Ava Wolfe is a Sydney Harbour Hospital psychiatrist who has agreed to cover her friend’s practice in the country. As the only psychiatrist in town, Lachlan has no choice but to make an appointment with the feisty doctor he met a month earlier at his brother’s wedding. They shared a steamy encounter in the cloak room at the reception center and he’s nervous about her discovering he’s married.

 Ava’s memories of the darkly handsome detective haven’t faded over time. When he approaches her for therapy, she’s forced to set aside her attraction in order to give him the help he so desperately needs. After years of exposure to the worst mankind can offer, Lachlan Coleridge’s spirit has been ravaged. She yearns to help him, but she’s not sure that he’ll let her…

 To be a cop is to be tough – physically and mentally. There’s no room for weakness. If it gets out that Lachlan’s seeking help, any chance he has for promotion will be jeopardized. But he’s drowning in a sea of pain; of darkness and confusion and it’s only a matter of time before he topples into the abyss…

Can he trust the only woman who appears to understand him? Is he prepared to put his career on the line in return for saving his soul? And what will happen when she discovers his deceit? Will he open up to Ava and let her help him…before it’s too late? 

 

Trey Walker is living the high life. A successful advertising executive at the impressive Baker & Saddler advertising firm, he’s dangerously good looking, drives a vintage red Mustang and has his pick of women. Life couldn’t get any sweeter. Then Trey receives an urgent call from his identical twin brother and in an instant, his life changes…

 

Wade Walker’s life has never been easy. He might have been born with looks to die for, but so far things haven’t worked out. In and out of dead end jobs, Wade is resentful of his brother’s success. Even so, he’s always been able to rely on Trey and the night of Saturday, September fifth is no different. Only this time, things don’t quite go as planned. A woman has been raped and the police are asking a whole bunch of difficult questions. Trey is taken away in handcuffs…

 

Kiesha Munro has a reputation at the prestigious Sydney Legal law firm for being their best defense attorney, but her rise to the top has been far from easy. She’s an aboriginal woman working in a white male-dominated world and even in the twenty-first century, it’s taken a whole lot of hard work, courage and determination to get there. When Trey seeks her out to represent him against rape charges, she’s initially reluctant to take him on.

 

But then she hears Trey’s story and she’s convinced he’s been wrongly accused. She’s determined to do all she can to prove his innocence and at the same time, protect her heart. With killer looks and a body that would get any woman’s pulse racing, Trey Walker is dangerous, but not in the way the police think. Of that she has no doubt…
