Have you ever wanted something so bad that you literally fought for it? Growing up, my house was filled with raging hormones. Five girls, each learning to navigate our way through life. It wasn't always pretty. We were not taught to be quiet. We learned that if we wanted something, we spoke up and fought for it. If we didn't, one of the other girls got it. Many women weren't raised that way. They were taught to stay quiet and let the guys decide. I love that in modern romances, we see women making their own choices and fighting for what is rightfully theirs.

A clash of wills in lion country can have deadly consequences…
Big city chef Ruby Slater is the heir to a magnificent mansion in the heart of Lion Country. When her bistro in Cleveland burns to the ground, she leaves everything behind and heads to South Africa.
In the small town of Marulaspruit, on the edge of the vast Kruger Game Reserve, she intends to start afresh and restore her late uncle’s mansion to its former glory. But not everyone in town is happy with Ruby’s arrival.
Local builder and former bad boy Sam Duvenage also claims a legal right to the Jacaranda Mansion, and he’s not about to give it up.
Furthermore, a dangerous poaching syndicate is determined to get their hands on the mansion for its own nefarious purposes.
As danger circles closer and passion ignites between them, it becomes clear that Ruby and Sam had better put their clash of wills aside or find themselves at the mercy of deadly criminals.

“Chaperone?” Sam let out a humourless laugh. “Is that what you think I am?” Ruby stood with hands fisted at her sides. “I hate to inform you Princess, but on your own Emmarentia, Schoeman, and the others will have you for breakfast, and there won’t be much that your family can do. For starters, according to the local gossip mill, Schoeman and Emmarentia are getting it on, and they seem to have the local bank manager in their pocket.”
Ruby shook her head; this was not good news.
“Getting into a full-on war with these types is seldom a good idea. They do not fight fair.” Sam’s eyes were heavy-lidded with tiredness, but his expression was focussed. “It would be better if…I can take on these guys better by myself, Ruby. I don’t want you getting hurt.”
Sam’s words took Ruby by surprise; was he admitting that he actually cared about her? “No freaking way. We’re partners, remember?” She looked up at him with one eyebrow cocked. She was a few feet away from him and could sense the tautness of his body. “I’m a fighter. Always have been.” Ruby’s eyes bore into Sam’s, it was time she stared him down.
Sam didn’t look away. Ruby wasn’t sure who took the first step, but now they were standing mere inches from one another. Sam’s eyes flickered to her lips and Ruby jutted her chin in defiance. Her mind was telling her to back away, go upstairs, and lock the door. But something deep and primitive had taken hold of her, and she stood rooted the spot. She could hear him breathing, sensed his body heat. This man was maddening––he could be rational and controlled, but a ferocious spirit lay within him. Right now that spirit was threatening to overtake him, and Ruby found herself unable to speak.
