A Shadow From His Past
Life hadn’t been easy for Brad Steele. At eighteen, hardworking and looking for a break he finds one, in a wealthy home. But he hadn’t bargained for the unwelcome attentions of the pampered young mistress, nor, her treachery, at his rejection – a set-up that threw him into a three-year sentence for theft.
Twelve years later, in the wilds of the Northern Territory of Australia, an injured bird in need of attention brings Jodie Marshall and Brad together but any hopes the young English heiress has of touching the heart of the cold, reclusive naturalist are bleak indeed, until the night circumstance throws them together and into the firestorms of passion. But now, torn between love and the plague of his past, guilt knifes through Brad. Jodie deserved better than a man who bore the stigma of an ex-convict. He decides to end it, leaving them both shattered.
But the power of their love survives heartbreak, a jail sentence and vicious poison pens but can it survive their worst nightmare — its evil meticulously crafted and now a reality?
