Vanity and Humility by Faye Hall
Genre Australian Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
What if vanity threatened to destroy the only love you’ve ever known?
Ethan Brant is on the hunt for a murderess who is seducing her victims and stealing collections of diamonds from each one. When the woman he suspects becomes his father’s newest wife, Ethan’s fears multiply and he agrees to travel with the newlyweds to Australia to help expand his father’s business interests, and protect his only remaining family at all cost.
Arriving in Rockhampton, Ethan never loses his suspicions of his father’s bride, especially when more bodies begin turning up, each a similar age to his father and all robbed of their diamonds. If he could only find something to tie all his evidence together, he could finally put an end to this case. What he finds instead is an intriguing young woman swimming on his father’s property who sends his emotions into turmoil.
Cady Eldon’s history with men taught her it was foolish to lose her heart to one. When she meets Ethan down at the lake though, she couldn’t ignore the fire he burned inside her, making her long for the feel of his skin against hers. Discovering he was in fact a police detective, she becomes intrigued. Why would a man so wealthy, and with such a noble career, want to live so humbly?
Her attraction to this man, and her interest in the murder case he was working on, pulls them together on a journey north where they become entangled in the manipulative web of the murderess Ethan is chasing.
As their affair continues, Ethan and Cady learn just how cruel one woman’s vanity can be and how she will stop at nothing to get the riches she believes she deserves.
Will their love survive, or will they fall victim to the greatest sin of all?
