Fencer and model Claire Harvey has never forgotten her searing, passionate encounter with a handsome stranger on her first international flight. Then, as an up-and-coming superstar, she had the world at her feet. Now, her marriage is on the rocks, a recent scandal has derailed her career, and she's flat broke after her sponsors have pulled out.

Desperate to escape, Claire flies to a small town in Ireland, only to come face to face with the man she recognizes from that long-ago flight. Her stranger turns out to be Patrick Maguire, a media mogul, and the spark between them is as intense as ever.
Even as she's drawn into a smoldering affair, Claire's past is catching up with her. When new photos of her hit the press, she realizes that she's being targeted, and that Patrick's presence in her life is no coincidence. Fearful to trust again, Claire must decide whether following her heart will mean a one-way ticket to disaster, or a second chance at happiness.

South African author Jassy Mckenzie's second romance for Astor+Blue Editions seamlessly combines the high-stakes worlds of love and sports, creating a sizzling saga you won't soon forget.

The Author: Jassy Mackenzie was born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and moved to South Africa when she was eight years old. She lives with her partner Dion, and two horses and two cats. She enjoys traveling, cooking, cycling, and competes in dressage on her thoroughbred.

She also loves the energy, danger and excitement of Johannesburg, believing there is no better place for a thriller writer to be, and wishes to share its 'terrifying, exhilarating, essence with readers across the world'.

From a book-loving family where TV was banned from the house, she is the second youngest of five daughters. Her mother Ann Mackenzie was a well-known short story writer, and Jassy's sister, Vicky Jones, now living in New Zealand, is a prize-winning author of children's books.

As a youngster, Jassy seemingly had an uncanny knack of choosing unsavoury boyfriends who were involved in everything from cocaine dealing to smuggling. Then, she was hijacked at gunpoint outside her home, and had her car taken from her by force. This experience led to her first novel: 'Random Violence'. She has since written several more thrillers, a 'Jade De Jong' detective series, and erotic romances.

Combining her writing career with editing a 'Hair and Beauty' trade magazine, Jassy has also had numerous non-fiction articles on a wide variety of subjects published locally, and internationally, over the years.
