High Stakes


An old foe out for revenge. Teens going missing.

And somewhere in between, love is blossoming.

It wouldn’t be the first time Wills Crossing’s top cop, Neville Wilson, has found himself up to his eyeballs in mayhem, but for the first time in a long time, Nev finds himself on a date with newcomer, Grace Wells.

For Grace, what was supposed to be a 3 month stay has turned into a permanent relocation for her and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Millie. Her disastrous love life has finally taken a turn for the better, but juggling dating and a teen with attitude is no easy feat.

When Millie is caught up in the trouble plaguing Wills Crossing and is abducted, Grace’s chance at finding love with the handsome Nev appears to be scuttled.

Last Breath

She can still remember her last breath.
Lyla Freedman died eight months ago in a random attack she never saw coming. Every time she closes her eyes, she can still feel the hands of her murderer squeezing her neck until everything fades to black. Her killer was never caught but he’s haunted her dreams ever since. Deciding a new start is in order, she swaps city life for a small town. Returning to her birth place, she assumes control of her family’s rundown B&B, only to unexpectedly run into the cop who saved her life.

Time to slow down.
After being shot during his last case, Bill Marsden is taking personal leave. Booking a room at a B&B in a small alpine town, Bill arrives, only to come face to face with the woman he saved months ago. He’s often dreamed about her, wondering what happened to her and how she was getting on, and what he finds is as unexpected as it is worrying. 

He can remember her last breath, too, and this time, he plans to snuff it out for good.


Say You Love Me

Undercover and on a deadline.
Investigative reporter Hannah Striker has come to Wills Crossing to discover what on earth is going on. It’s featured in half a dozen news reports of rising crime, extortion and standover tactics, murder, bomb blasts, bushfires and most recently, the abductions of four local teens. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, she’s caught off guard when a sweet, young constable offers a guided tour and a promise to explain everything.

He’s determined to make his life count.
Near-death experiences have a way of shining a light on the things that are important in life. Like a successful career, the respect of peers, and finding love. Constable Brandon White is well on his way to living life to the fullest. The boss is happy with his work, and his colleagues see him as more than capable. All he has left to do is find a woman to occupy his heart, but that’s proving harder than first thought. But hey, two out of three ain’t bad, right?

She’s obsessed with the young cop who saved her from certain death and she won’t let anyone else take what’s rightfully hers.
