All she wants is her freedom.
All he wants is a fresh start.
And a murderous stranger is hunting them down.
Rose Simmonds wants to live like any other normal person. Away from her overprotective family and their dire warnings about a man from the past. Away from the cattle farm where she’s been kept safe for so long. So, she hitches a ride out in the middle of the desert.
Koen Babroda is hoping for a fresh start. He picks Rose up from the isolated dirt road and promises to give her a lift to Darwin. But he fails to tell her he’s riding a stolen motorbike as he too, runs away from past mistakes.
An immediate attraction sparks between them, but Koen finds old habits die hard. When he betrays Rose, she is stuck in Darwin with no money and nowhere to go. Then a man tries to abduct her and Rose comes to the horrible recognition her parents were right all along. Someone is out to harm her and her family. Can Koen overcome the weight of his former failings and believe he is worthy of love? Will Rose recognize the strength within herself to be rid of her nemesis once and for all?
