Tempting Fate by Erin Moira O’Hara
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this installment of life in the small town of Bindarra Creek. Ms O’Hara adds a touch of suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. Every challenge a small town could offer – from a raging bush fire to armed bandits and stampeding cattle – has Samantha Quinn questioning her decision to come to Bindarra Creek in her quest to find her mother. And then there’s the sexy Senior Sargeant Riley Morgan who had my own heart racing. Throw in a long standing family rivalry and you have a winner.
I love Ms O’Hara’s sense of humour and the way she captures her characters to build a story that is full of action, intrigue and romance. And how gorgeous is that cover?
About Tempting Fate
Honoring their mother’s last wish, Samantha Quinn and her young brother leave the vibrant, beachside city of Newcastle for a small country town in Northern New South Wales. Samantha’s quest is to locate the woman who gave her up at birth. She never imagined meeting a man who could tempt her to stay, or that she’d be running for her life from a raging bush fire, armed bandits, and stampeding cattle.
Riley Morgan is enjoying life after ten grueling years in Sydney’s Drug Squad. As Senior Sergeant in his hometown of Bindarra Creek, his toughest duty these days is seeing the occasional drunk safely home. Then fate delivers Samantha— a sexy, gutsy and enthralling woman who threatens to take the long-standing rivalry between the Morgans and Sullivans into a new arena.
