Book 5 in the ALINTA BAY


“Have you tried the emergency button yet?”

He nodded and moved towards the lift’s controls, hitting the red button again.

“No response?”

Taking a few calming breaths, he tried again, this time with a gentler touch. A red switch lit up, and a static voice asked, “Triple C Security. What’s your name?”

Maddie joined him at the panel. “His name is Jonah.”

“Thanks. What’s your name, ma’am?”

“I’m Maddie. Actually, it’s Mandinka, but everyone calls me Maddie. Maddie Torres. And we’re stuck in a lift. In Alinta Bay. It’s in Victoria.”

Jonah cocked a brow and crossed his arms, a hint of amusement tugging at his lips despite the situation.

“The two of you and no one else?”

Jonah was certain the security person had to hold back on his mirth as well.

Maddie’s forehead creased into a frown, and she shot him a glare that wiped the amusement in an instant. Focussing on the panel, she responded, “Yes, just the two of us. Isn’t that enough?”


In an unexpected encounter, the lives of Jonah, a rescue diver from New Zealand, and Maddie, a spirited local, collide, forever altering their future. Trapped together in a hotel lift, sparks fly between them, but Jonah’s past looms, casting a shadow over their fragile connection.

Maddie, captivated by Jonah’s charisma, is determined to find him when he mysteriously misses their planned dinner. With a friend’s assistance, her search unveils a chilling discovery – Jonah unconscious on a cliff.

Navigating a sea of emotions, in order to find a future together, will Maddie and Jonah manage the challenges posed by their past secrets and present obstacles?
