From the Author
Seven for A Secret
was a finalist one year in the Clendon Award run in conjunction with the Romance Writers of New Zealand.
Slade Haultain is one of my favourite heroes. A laid back, take-it-or-leave-it Kiwi bloke who loves his farming lifestyle as much as he loves the sea and boating.
This book is set in the beautiful Bay of Plenty, close to the port twin cities of Tauranga and Mount Maunagnui, an area girded by the Kaimai ranges.
This is an area very close to my heart as I've lived here for many years and once the Bay Of Plenty grips your heart, it never lets go.
About the Author
Story telling is something that comes naturally to Shirley Wine ... brought up poor, her family used to while away long winter evenings telling each other stories ... of great battles with dragons and gallant knights...always on black stallions .... and human girls destined to become fairy princesses ... and of course after all these battles ... the knight won the lady and they lived happily ever after. Her Dad was the best story teller ... something that came naturally from his Irish roots ... and now she carries on the family tradition writing expansive rural romances set mainly in New Zealand ... that little slice of Paradise in the Southern Ocean.
