There’s a mother lode of romance and adventure as two fiery souls find something more valuable than gold in the paradise of New Zealand.
It’s 1866, and the West Coast Gold Rush is bringing a flood of fortune hunters to New Zealand. But Lady Guinevere Stanhope has come not for gold but for fauna, determined to carry on her father’s dream of capturing the rarest of wildlife on film, which could be quite valuable scientifically . . . and perhaps financially.
Quinn O’Donnell dreams only of striking gold. Driven out of his native Ireland, his fierce pride makes him loath to help any English person, let alone a lady as haughty and obstinate as Guinevere. But when she’s caught in a flash flood, Quinn is forced by his conscience to rescue her.
Bound by chance in a dangerous land, the pair share an unlikely alliance—which slowly grows into a passionate treasure that neither can ignore . . . or resist.
