Wild Kingdom Ebook CoverFrom six-time Global eBook Award medallist, Anne Rouen, comes Wild Kingdom—the second novel in her collection of Australian Outback romantic suspense dramas set in Queensland in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Sudden tragedy places Laura’s life on a new and unexpected path, leading her on a journey back to her roots at a remote cattle station in the Gulf of Carpentaria. While she expects to find the long-lost sanctuary of her childhood, she is instead greeted with chaos and a dream set in ruins.

Laura finds herself burdened with the unyielding task of rebuilding her great-uncle’s cattle station, where the anticipated struggles of this harsh environment are superseded by a more imminent danger in the form of a cunning, daring stock thief who will stop at nothing to break her.

Strong-willed and determined, Laura digs in her heels to battle all obstacles in order to keep the station afloat. But all too soon, she faces the greatest challenge of all: desperately trying to stop herself from falling for the one man she can’t be sure she can trust.

Is Laura in love with a traitor, and is she being set-up to fail?

Belated Thanks to Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Awards

Multi-award winning World War II Historical Fiction.

I can categorically state that 2018 has been one of the hardest year of my life because, not only did I lose one of my dearest friends, my darling Dad passed away in August. The Global Ebook awards were announced on the day of his funeral. Suffice it to say that I was in no condition to appreciate them as I ought to have done.

On our journey through life we all suffer loss. All of us lose our parents unless we die young, so I know there are a lot of people who know how I feel. Your Dad is one of the two people who gave you life, nurtured and protected you until adulthood (and afterwards, as well). You have never known life without him – until now; and it is hard.

The year began badly, with a phone call from my friend, Diane, who started me on my road to publishing the Master of Illusion series. Without her inspiration and encouragement, I would never have had the courage to even publish one book, let alone four. It was with great grief I learned that she was only expected to live a few weeks.

Guardian Angel (fourth and final book of the Master of Illusion Series) was in the process of being published and I could not delay it. I hated the thought that it was due to come out at about the same time as her life was ending. I managed to change the dedication and I thank God that she lived long enough to read how much I owed to her help and support. I am a little comforted that wherever Guardian Angel goes, her name will go with it.

So, belatedly, I would like to thank the judges and administrators of the Dan Poynter 2018 Global Ebook Awards for presenting Guardian Angel with, not one, but two awards: Silver for best Historical Literary Fiction – Modern; and Bronze for Best Ebook Cover, for which I congratulate my exceptionally talented editor and designer, Felicity Matthews of Web Etch Design and Editing. I love all the covers she has designed for me and I am thrilled that her work has now received recognition.

This makes a total of four Global Ebook Awards won by the series since 2014 and once again I would like to thank the judges and administrators for their hard work and dedication to literature. It is a fitting tribute to their founder, the late Dan Poynter.

To anyone who has suffered loss, this year, I extend my sincere sympathy. I wish all my readers, friends and followers Peace and Joy at Christmas and I hope that 2019 is a much brighter year for us all.
