When Kiri Karaitiana returns to her native New Zealand, there is little about her future that has any certainty. Dark secrets line her past, and when she is forced to accept the assistance of Dan Harvey—the only member of her ward that she knows—Kiri's confusion only grows. As she finds herself becoming closer to Dan, Kiri wonders if she will ever be worthy of the love of a good man. The last thing Dan wants is a serious relationship with any woman right now. But when the beautiful, complex Kiri enters his carefully constructed world, he can’t refuse his growing feelings and is hopelessly drawn to her. However, when Dan learns of Kiri’s secrets, he realizes that together they must confront her murky past, or their relationship will be forever torn apart. A novel as memorable and dramatic as the New Zealand landscape.
