Publisher Description

In the dusty red reaches of the Pilbara, a simple misunderstanding sends love off track...

Stacey had thought Liam was the one. A fellow survey geologist who could discuss books as intelligently as he could detail rocks. Who looked as good in a tux as he did in his high-vis work clothes. She'd thought they'd found the perfect life: civilisation and adventure; together. But Liam hasn't told her everything. And now, on a ridge above a narrow outback gully, Stacey can see her perfect world crumbling before her eyes. Can their new love survive this unexpected obstacle? Includes previews of Charlotte's two full-length novels RYDERS RIDGE and IRON JUNCTION.

'A spirited heroine, a sexy farmer and a secret. Nash has created a dynamic debut novel that grabs you from the first page.' Fleur McDonald

'This breakout novel is a skilful mix of rural charm and gripping medical drama.' West Australian

Charlotte Nash knows first-hand what she is writing about, having seen the Pilbara from the air, through the windscreen of a four-wheel drive, from the top of the mining plant, and from remote operations, all while working as an engineer and investigator. She was born in England and grew up in the Redland Shire of Brisbane with a love for horses and heavy machinery, later studying both engineering and medicine. She subsequently worked for the CSIRO and for private industry, visiting mine sites and ports across Australia. These days, she is a technical writer and fiction author, and teaches creative writing at the University of Queensland. Her first novel was Ryders Ridge, set in a small country town; her next novel, Iron Junction, is set in a Pilbara mining town.
