She hung up and noticed a smile on her face. And instead of a churning stomach, butterflies had made themselves comfortable. She thought of how easy the conversation had flowed and how attentive he’d been. And his voice. She liked his voice. It was deep and calm, smooth and articulate. She closed her eyes and lost herself in his accent. It hadn’t been strong, but still obvious to her.
And then there’d been his laugh. God, his laugh. It had turned her inside out.
With a big exhale, she covered her face with her hands, surprised that on a day she had to face the police, she was drooling over a man she’d never met, but only talked to.
For a mere few minutes, at that.
The police. A ripple of worry went through her, and she stood to search for her phone to give Steve another call. This time on his mobile.
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?

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)
4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

Accents always seem to catch us right int he heart.
Yes, they do … and some are better than others 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Daryl.
I can relate to this. I met my husband on the phone after a setup from a friend. He had a great phone voice. Enjoyed the snippet. Tweeted.
Oh Linda … you spiked my interest 🙂
Thanks for stopping by as well as the tweet!
Accents can tell us a lot about a person. Speaking of which, the other day a grocery clerk asked where my accent was from — which startled me, as my Canadian accent was never strong, I’ve been in the States for decades, and I haven’t been asked where I was from for years.
Some people have “an ear” for it. My accent shines through when I get tired … and after hours on the phone with my mum 🙂
