Orphaned at sixteen, Toby Harrison is already a survivor. Handsome and charismatic, yet fiercely ambitious, he’s an expert at illusion. When Toby moves to the far north of Queensland to live with his godmother and a family he has never met, he is determined to begin a new life. A life where he has total control over everything and everyone within it. But Toby’s controlled existence is threatened when he meets Charlotte, his godmother’s daughter. Beautiful, wild, and seductive, Charlotte is a force of nature that Toby has little chance of resisting. As Toby and Charlotte embark on building a life together, Toby is faced with the harsh reality that love is not always enough when it comes to sharing your life with another person, while Charlotte is forced to accept that her picture perfect family might be hiding a destructive secret.
