In a race against time, can they hunt down one child in the vastness of Africa? South African ex-security contractor Chrystal Booysen has officially retired to her family game stud farm after her last mission took a dark turn. Corruption-fighting magnate Curtis Wilson hires American private investigator Rowan Zackery to rescue his daughter. But Rowan is out of his depth in Africa, and he needs Chrystal's expertise. The longer Akina is missing, the more people presume she's dead. And he doesn't want to find yet another body... As they investigate, Chrystal grapples with the unsettling evidence that her estranged childhood friend, Mother Stella-Rose, is involved somehow in the disappearance of the children. Akina is in the clutches of Levi Louw, an unhinged and dangerous criminal who works for Mother Stella-Rose. Driven by greed and power, he'll do anything to make a profit. As they chase the elusive trail, can they save Akina, or will they be too late?
I was born in Zimbabwe, and have lived in South Africa and England, but now call Australia home. I'm married and have two sons.
When not running around after the men in my life, I get to enjoy my hobbies, which include boating, reading, sewing, travel, gardening, and lunch with my author friends, (not necessarily in that order!)
I'm passionate about different cultures and wildlife, the wilder places in the world and literacy.

The highly-anticipated follow-up to the Daphne Du Maurier finalist, Exposed. She'll risk everything to expose the truth. Since her twin sister Sylvie's disappearance seven years ago, single mother Mabel Reynolds has turned grief into action and become a strong voice for victims of violence and abuse. When new revelations shed light on what may have happened not only to Sylvie, but dozens of other women, Mabel's hope for answers is reignited. But the new oh-so-charming DA overseeing the investigation seems more interested in a quick rather than an accurate resolution. With little faith in the system, Mabel isn't about to stay quiet, not when she's finally close to the truth. She's willing to go up against anyone---even a smug, irritating, attractive DA to get the answers she and other families deserve. Open and shut. That's what Assistant DA Paul Flynn has been told about his new assignment supervising a house of horrors case. With a high-profile conviction at stake, Paul can't afford to make a wrong move if his professional goals are to be achieved. But Mabel Reynolds has his attention. All of it. Attraction aside, the woman knows far more than what's in the official files which makes her something even more intriguing. But using Mabel as an asset means exposing her and her young daughter to even more danger. Danger that is closing in on them from every side. As even darker forces appear, and their lives are threatened, Paul is faced with risking not only his entire career, but also the one thing he never anticipated losing: his heart.
