My hero is a doctor who is working for MSF in Sudan. He’s cute, has floppy, overgrown bronzy locks, lips you want fused to your own and is an adventure seeker who can rough it with the best of them. Not that unique huh? Well, my Ford (or should I say Ariadne’s Ford?) has an endearing quality that many bachelors don’t, he can hold a baby
comfortably in his arms without the baby screaming blue murder or looking like he’s holding a dirty big rat a metre away from his body. Now men with a couple of kids, they’re old hands, feeding and tossing their kids over their shoulders and throwing them in the air, but when you see a bachelor take a babe into his arms and the child doesn’t scream it’s little lungs out, well that’s quite something. But before I insert a very short excerpt from my book with Ford holding a babe, I have a funny story I’d like to share with you. Shortly after giving birth to my first baby, my husbands best friend who was a bachelor at the time asked me if he could borrow my pride and joy and my two dogs and take a walk along the promenade at the beach because he had heard that babies and animals were a good way to pull the chicks! Well, I can tell you it never happened and he had to find another way that didn’t include my newborn and pups to entice the chicky babes! I can still see the shock and then disappointment on his face when I said no. What did he expect?
But I digress. Here’s the snippet from Doctors Beyond Borders:
With her hands in her pockets, she strolled over. The faces that turned to her as she approached smiled, and the people fell away to let her through.
Ford was standing by a trestle table flanked by women on either side, holding a tiny child in his arms. The baby’s large skull rested on his forearms, and his big, round eyes stared up at Ford as he was fed intravenously. Ariadne’s heart swelled. Ford cradled the baby, like the crook of his arm was made to hold the fragile bundle. He gently lowered the child into the mother’s arms and she stepped away into a corner where she sat, cross-legged, holding him.

She's about to find out that nothing is fair when it comes to war except perhaps, the healing power of love.
When Ariadne Tate takes a deployment to Sudan with a medical aid organisation, romance is the last thing on her mind...but Dr Ford Gosden puts a glitch in her plans. Too damn attractive for his own good and a thoroughly nice guy, Ford slowly seeps under Ariadne's skin.
But Sudan is not a stable place to form a relationship, and as political tension escalates in the region, Ariadne has no choice but to focus on her job and her safety. Under the protection of a UN convoy, she heads out into the war-torn countryside — and the unthinkable happens. Captured and held hostage by a renegade with no chance of escape, Ariadne's hope for a new life with the man she loves begins to fade and the fight for her life begins.
