A SHADOW FROM HIS PAST contemporary v. sensual
Life hadn’t been easy for Brad Steele and he’d been forced to live on the edge until he was eighteen. Now twelve years on, a reclusive naturalist and wildlife photographer, Brad carves out a place in the raw rugged regions of Australia’s Northern Territory, helping to relocate marauding crocodiles and taking care of injured wildlife. An injured bird brings Jodie Marshall into contact with Brad. His dark sensual good looks are the ultimate in a woman’s fantasy but any hopes the young English heiress, might have of touching the heart of the aloof hostile wildlife warrior are bleak indeed, until the night circumstance throws them together and into the firestorms of love and passion. But Brad has a secret buried deep in his soul that forbids his loving her…The power of their love survives heartbreak, a jail sentence and poison pens but can it survive their worst nightmare — its evil meticulously crafted and now a reality?

Come, Love me Again contemporary v. sensual
He snared her wrist in one powerful fist and pulled her to him. Hunter Kincaid, the tall, striking, Australian cattle king still remembers, only too well, the girl who’d betrayed him in their youth, and he hates himself for still loving her… “What do you want? Haven’t you done enough?” he hissed. Raw, untamed desires flaming through him and driven by naked longing, he’s but a breath from taking her. “Don’t you know what I can do to you? What I want to do to you?” Torn by twelve years of remorse, the lovely young Becky, quivers at the very touch of him. She has returned from
America and must tell him the truth — why she’d been forced to betray him. But the scars of betrayal burn deep in his soul and sex isn’t sufficient to expiate that pain – Hunter wants vengeance! Let her suffer as he had.
Review FALLEN ANGELS 4 angelsCome, Love Me Again is one of the most emotionally packed stories I’ve read in a while. The exchanges between Rebecca and Hunter are powerful and sometimes gut wrenching. Their emotions are so raw and open that it is impossible not to feel them. Ms. Hilliger has portrayed the setting for this story in vivid detail, also. It fairly leaps off the page, and the cattle stations and the surrounding countryside are so vividly described that I could see everything in my mind. I felt like I stepped off the plane with the heroine and experienced everything she did. I was moved to tears by some of Hunter’s harshness toward her, especially when she tries to explain why she left him. This is a realistic story, and I enjoyed it very much.Reviewed by: Marlene http://www.fallenangelreviews.com/2007/July/Marlene-ComeLoveMeAgain.htm
