Christie Mitchell finds herself at a crossroads when her fiance runs off with her best friend and leaves her high and dry in Auckland. Ready to throw off the shackles of a tainted relationship, Christie packs up and heads to a remote island in southern New Zealand in order to start a new life. Over a southern summer she finds the means to start over and perhaps even a little bit more…
Enter Blake Ryan—a guy who’s used to getting what he wants: attention, laughs, and any woman he desires. Upon their fateful meeting, Blake and Christie begin to dance around an unspoken attraction and the relentless pull of Blake’s charm. Christie may not be able to trust again—or is Blake worth the risk? Can such a whirlwind romance survive the choppy, unchartered waters ahead? Or will two stubborn, unprepared individuals collapse under the weight of their own pasts?
A Southern Star is a contemporary romance with a strong New Zealand flavour. If you like simmering chemistry, couples that are meant to be, and heaps of Kiwi lifestyle, then you’ll love the first book in Anya Forest’s Across the Strait series.
