Playing hard to get…
Sometimes when writing a book, the story will throw you a curve. That's exactly what happened to me in Fallout.
Previously, my heroines have been sweet natured with a backbone of steel that emerges in their darkest hour and often they didn't know they had…but not Tully. Tully exploded onto the page full of cocky self assurance and cutting one liners.
I have to admit to not knowing how to take this character at first-and I know that sounds a little strange that the writer wouldn't know their character, but I honestly wasn't sure this woman was going to be likeable enough for readers to warm to, when I wrote the first few scenes of this book. However, this spirited, capable woman had a story to tell and she proved to be one of my favourite female characters to write.
Tully Chambers is no damsel in distress. An up and coming detective, she had her sights set on promotion until the day her partner was murdered and she ended up on the run from the mob.
Jake Holden has demons of his own. Having served his country for over twenty years, he’s found himself wounded, alone, and without a plan for his future. What starts as a simple diversion--trying to figure out the feisty little waitress next door—turns out to be his most dangerous mission yet.
From the tropics of Far North Queensland to the rugged isolation of the Northern Territory in Australia, two modern-day warriors discover their greatest fear isn’t that of a madman’s revenge–but of laying their hearts on the line for love.
