There was a groan on the other end of the line. “I heard about your phone call. You must’ve left some impression, but if you start any rumours by calling her my girlfriend I will kill you.”
As he stepped inside the cafe, Mat asked, “You heard?”
“I’ve already spoken to her, but I don’t—”
“I’m glad you did. Tiffany was desperate to talk to you. I hope you were able to help her.”
Mat held his phone away for a moment, smiled at the young woman behind the counter, and ordered his coffee.
‘‘You’re still there?” Steve asked with a loud voice.
Mat shook his head with a smile and explained, “Yes, mate, just ordering a much-needed coffee.” His friend’s resigned sigh gave him another chuckle. “If you’ve already talked to her, we’re all good, ay.”
“We’re all good. Thanks for calling anyway and good luck finding your way. But, by the way, what the hell did you two talk about?”
Mat took a sip of the coffee and was impressed by the flavour considering it cost him only a few bucks.
“Mat, you’re pissing me off here. Will you focus on this conversation?”
“Geez, Steve. When did you get so touchy?”
There was a sharp intake of breath and an exhale on the other end of the line. “Tiff had a rough twelve months and a shitty morning. I’m simply concerned.”
Mat froze mid-stride. Damn! He’d assumed something was wrong, but now he was curious about the history of it all. “What happened?”
Pikorua, the Maori name for the symbol, is a twist that is said to symbolise the strength of the bond between two people. Mat is certain there is something between Tiffany and him.
When Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories flood her mind of the previous year and a relationship gone bad. Frightened, she calls her friend, Steve, for help, but instead a stranger answers the phone. Little does Tiffany know how much this New Zealander is going to impact her life, especially after she is assaulted only a few hours later.
Mat Apanui, the owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can’t ignore the worry in Tiffany’s voice when he answers Steve’s phone. Before he knows it, he is spending most of his business trip to Melbourne with her. Desperate to keep her safe after an attack, he invites her to stay with him in Queenstown, NZ.
With her safety at risk, how will Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust the sexy stranger enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?
