Read full description of the books:
He came. She saw. He conquered.
It happened one hot, moonlit midsummer night at a ball in Auckland, New Zealand, 1884. Miss Anna Brown walked out onto the terrace and into arrestingly beautiful Russian artist Sasha Ivanovsky. He is unconventional, unfettered, adventurous, dangerously bohemian—everything she is not, everything she fears. But she is bewitched. His eyes—dark, mysterious, smoulderingly passionate— burn into her mind, into her heart, into her very soul. Unthinkingly, she dances the night away with him.
When dawn breaks, it brings with it the cold light of reality. Ivanovsky is not wealthy, not well-bred, not respectable, not suitable, not safe. Anna’s carefree exhibition on the dance floor has set the tongues of society wagging, and she cannot bear it.
With one glance from his dark eyes, he stole her heart away on that fateful midsummer night. But she is desperately determined that he will not steal away her body and soul too. A resistance must be mounted. Her rebel heart must be subdued, and all thoughts of doomed, dangerous loves locked away. But is forgetting such a man, such a love, impossible? The flame of love he ignited in her heart will not extinguish. Drop by drop she can feel herself melting away. Soon there might be nothing left of her…
But the sea has a gift for Anna. Something dangerous. Something forbidden. Something that threatens to wreck her…

Read information about the authorI have always been captivated by stories that take us on haunting and extraordinary journeys deep into far-flung lands or hidden worlds, and that make new sense of the already-familiar or present magical new possibilities. Pair this with an imagination that is quick to turn a towering rock formation into a castle or people a forest path with a dreamed-up knight, and fiction writing was probably an inevitable occupation!
Growing up in rural New Zealand surrounded by beautiful nature (and taking full advantage of it by not spending much time indoors doing schoolwork) provided an abundance of inspiration, which I have been using to create stories and characters from a young age. My blog, The Muse, focuses on inspiration and creativity - check it out by visiting my website.
When I'm not writing, I love to spend time painting in watercolour, reading, horse riding, making or listening to music, gardening, and doing creative projects.
I live, with my family, my two horses and a much-loved cat, on a sixteen-acre rural property on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island.
