She’s not ready for love. He’ll do whatever it takes to change her mind.

Christie Mitchell is heartbroken. Now that her fiancé has run off with her best friend, she knows she has nothing left in Auckland. Christie hopes that a move to a remote island in southern New Zealand will help her escape the pain. But then on a fateful ferry ride, she meets Blake Ryan.

Blake is used to getting women’s attention. Despite the fact he’s tall, dark, and handsome, his relentless pursuit is not enough to overcome Christie’s fear of trusting again. At least she isn’t asking him the tough questions he doesn’t want to answer...

When Christie finds out she’s expecting and her ex is the father, her world is turned upside down. But no matter what Blake does, she keeps him at arm’s length. Only then does Blake realise what he could lose if he doesn’t confront his own secretive past. Can he prove himself to be not just the man she wants—but the man she needs?

A Southern Star is a contemporary standalone 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.
