Courting Danger is my next book to be published later this summer. It follows on from The Fifth Wheel, taking Fern back to Portugal for the trial against her attacker, Stefan.
Here’s a taster of what’s coming …
Fern Mortimer wants her life back.
After five years recovering from a hit-and-run accident, the last thing she needed was a maniac – even a charming one – trying to kill her.
Now, eight months after that attempt on her life, she returns to Portugal to face her nemesis in court.
But her attacker, Stefan Pereira, has no intention of spending any more time in prison and will do whatever it takes to secure his freedom and complete his mission – he wants her dead.
Losing doesn’t bear thinking about but then again, she hadn’t planned on being anyone’s target in the first place. Cursed by her own insecurities, can she hold her nerve? She has a strong case, after all … and a witness.
Does that even matter, when Stefan has his father’s money, the face of an angel and an ability to lie convincingly in three languages?
A ‘Not Guilty’ verdict will make her nightmare a reality.
Surely justice will prevail? She’s the victim, after all. Right?
It’s a courtroom drama in the main, but with a hint of psychological suspense that will continue to manifest itself in the The Blackleaf Agency series that follows on from here.
