Hannah Fielding is an incurable romantic.
The seeds for her writing career were sown in early childhood, spent in Egypt,
when she came to an agreement with her governess Zula: for each fairy story
Zula told, Hannah would invent and relate one of her own. Years later –
following a degree in French literature, several years of travelling in Europe,
falling in love with an Englishman, the arrival of two beautiful children and a
career in property development – Hannah decided after so many years of yearning
to write that the time was now. Today, she lives the dream: writing full time
at her homes in Kent, England, and the South of France, where she dreams up
romances overlooking breath-taking views of the Mediterranean.
To date, Hannah has published four passionate, evocative novels: Burning Embers, a ‘romance like
Hollywood used to make’, set in Kenya; the award-winning Echoes of Love, ‘an epic love story that is beautifully told’, set
in Italy; and books 1 and 2 of the Andalusian Nights trilogy, set in sultry
Spain, entitled Indiscretion and Masquerade. She is currently working on
her fifth book, Legacy, which will
publish this spring.

Coral Sinclair is a beautiful but naive
twenty-five-year-old photographer who has just lost her father. She’s leaving
the life she’s known and traveling to Kenya to take ownership of her
inheritance–the plantation that was her childhood home–Mpingo. On the voyage
from England, Coral meets an enigmatic stranger to whom she has a mystifying
attraction. She sees him again days later on the beach near Mpingo, but Coral’s
childhood nanny tells her the man is not to be trusted. It is rumored that Rafe
de Monfort, owner of a neighboring plantation and a nightclub, is a notorious
womanizer having an affair with her stepmother, which may have contributed to
her father’s death.
Circumstance confirms Coral’s worst
suspicions, but when Rafe’s life is in danger she is driven to make peace. A
tentative romance blossoms amidst a meddling ex-fiancé, a jealous stepmother, a
car accident, and the dangerous wilderness of Africa. Is Rafe just toying with
a young woman’s affections? Is the notorious womanizer only after Coral’s
inheritance? Or does Rafe’s troubled past color his every move, making him more
vulnerable than Coral could ever imagine?
