Two new Australian historical novels coming your way!
Well, it’s been an interesting twelve to eighteen months hasn’t it. COVID-19 has shaken us, divided us but also brought us together in ways that we could never have imagined possible. As an author I feel blessed that I can still do what I love and that as readers we can still access all those fabulous books out there.
2021 has started with some exciting news for me and that is that I will be working with Harper Collins Harlequin Mira again to deliver two new Australian historical romances.
“We’ll Meet Again” – a story based in World War 2 that follows two Australian sisters and two American brothers as America enters the war and the great American Invasion of Australia begins. I’ll have more to tell you over the coming months and we hope to release early in 2023.
The second historical hopefully due for release in 2024 is still in development so you’ll just have to hold on tight for more information about that one.
Links to my first two Australian historical novels are available at Harper Collins Australia . Links to buy all my books can be found on the right hand panel of my website for each reseller. Thank you for your support and lets look forward to being able to come together again soon. xxx Cheryl
“The Bushranger’s Wife”
He stole her locket … she stole his heart.
Central Highlands of Victoria, 1861
Jack the Devil’s reputation precedes him. The most notorious bushranger on the Central Highlands, nothing throws him off his game … until he holds up Prudence Stanforth and her grandmother. Jack can’t help but be captivated by the feisty Pru, with her sweeping red hair and complete lack of fear.
Weeks later, Pru crosses paths with the respectable businessman Jack Fairweather, and it’s not long before she recognises him as the bushranger who stole her beloved necklace. His price for the locket’s return is her silence … and a kiss. A kiss that sparks something inside them both.
When Pru discovers her grandmother has been keeping a devastating secret, running away with Jack the Devil is the perfect escape for her broken heart. The dangerous nature of his less-than-salubrious occupation is a poetic contradiction to her sheltered upbringing and only fuels their passion. Until that danger becomes a reality. Between the return of dark elements from Jack’s past and authorities intent on his capture, Jack and Pru must fight for their future together … or risk losing everything.
Praise for “The Bushranger’s Wife”
I really enjoy Cheryl Adnams’ writing and have read a lot of her stories. I loved The Girl From Eureka, and this story, The Bushranger’s Wife is set just a few years later than the time of the Eureka Stockade. Jack Fairweather is a character first introduced in The Girl From Eureka. We meet him on his bush ranging escapades very early in this story where Jack robs Prudence and her grandmother on their arrival to Victoria.
Adnams is brilliant at romantic Australian historical fiction, and I look forward to what she comes up with next… Lily Malone Read the full review here.
