An action adventure novel set in the Australian jungle where two unlikely people prove just how attractive opposites can be...

It’s pretentious socialite Abigail Mulholland’s worst nightmare when her plane crashes into an ancient Australian wilderness. Things go from bad to downright hellish when rescuers never come. As she battles to survive in an environment that’s as brutal as it is beautiful, Abigail finds herself also fighting her unlikely attraction to Mackenzie — another survivor, and a much younger man.

Mackenzie Steel is devastated by his partner’s death in the crash, the only person with whom he shared his painful past. Now, as he confronts his own demons, he finds he has a new battle on his hands: his growing feelings for Abigail, a woman who’s as frustratingly naïve as she is funny.

Fate brought them together, but they’ll need more than luck to escape Kakadu alive. Could the letters of a dead man hold the key to their survival?

About the Author

My life has been a crazy mix of work and play. My career was completely unguided. I’ve delivered pizzas and sold jewelry. I lost twelve years in a bank progressing from clerk to management. I was a personal assistant to a toffee-nosed polo player and now I’m a bookkeeper by day and book writer by night. One day I’ll give up my day job.

I love adventures that make me scream … white water rafting, snow skiing, jet skiing, canyoning, scuba diving with sharks and hang gliding are just a few. I hate apathy, laziness, people who think they’re better than everyone else and running out of wine. The only magazines I buy are National Geographic and National Geographic Traveler. I collect junky jewelry and expensive perfume and love wearing both every day.

I love cooking but rarely follow a recipe. I love my garden but my plants hate me. A good night out is with great friends and a fabulous bottle of wine or two. I love music but hate it too loud. I’d rather go to the movies than watch TV. There’s not too many foods I don’t like but I think potato is a waste of tummy space.

I’m a very slow reader but I love to read. I’ve tried to speed it up but I really enjoy savoring every word. Once upon a time I read every book to the end, but not anymore. Life is too precious to waste on a bad novel. When I was eleven I read Flowers in the Attic and I’ve been hooked on reading ever since. My reading choices are very eclectic. I read fiction and non-fiction and just about every genre.

Even after 28 years together I still love my hubby more every day. And my sons provide never ending joy and pride. My dog, Josie McLuvin is what I call a multi-shit… Maltese/shih tzu. Last of all I’m grateful that I’m mortal… it keeps me motivated.

      I am enjoying reading novels by Australian authors, I can identify with the locations the books are written about, having travelled all over Australia. I can visualise the written description.

        I was totally absorbed in this book. I didn't put it down. The descriptions of thearea the plane crashed made me feel like I had been there.

                      This book was a great read, it kept me up late and into the early mornings. I found it easy to read and enjoyed it. Can't wait until another is written by this author.
