Title: Their Bond Through Jade

Author: Iris Blobel

Genre: Australian Contemporary Romance

Book Blurb:

When Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories flood her mind of the previous year and a relationship gone bad. Frightened, she calls her friend, Steve, for help, but instead a stranger answers the phone. Little does Tiffany know how much this New Zealander is going to impact her life, especially after she is assaulted only a few hours later.

Mat Apanui, the owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can’t ignore the worry in Tiffany’s voice when he answers Steve’s phone. Before he knows it, he is spending most of his business trip to Melbourne with her. Desperate to keep her safe after an attack, he invites her to stay with him in Queenstown, NZ.

With her safety at risk, how will Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust the sexy stranger enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?


The next day, Mat watched Tiffany as she headed to the bathroom. The side of his mouth edged up at the thought he was about to join her in the bath, but a grin followed when he heard her familiar Oh, my God scream. With a few long strides, he stood behind her.

“What’s wrong?”

Pointing at the freestanding bathtub, she whispered, “A bath with a view.”

He wrapped his arms around her and pressed a kiss on the top of her head. “I designed it.”

“I love it.”

I love you.

Surprised at the last thought, he closed his eyes, and let the three words settle in his head. Gave it room, because he liked it. Very much so.

“Well, get in then. I’ll join you in a minute,” he heard himself saying, his voice sounding throaty even to him.

They had spent most of the day in Fox Glacier, where he introduced her to Adam and his staff, but also excused himself for two hours to catch up on business. Fortunately, she’d been more than happy to explore the small village on her own. Alas, they hadn’t been able to fly Lucy because of bad weather. But he’d made sure he booked a time slot a couple of days later after checking the weather forecast. He couldn’t wait to take her up into the air.

After lunch together, they had walked up to the edge of the glacier. No wonder she was looking forward to a long hot bath. Little did she know what he had in mind though, once he joined her.

His phone buzzed in his jeans pocket. He considered ignoring it, but checked the ID and saw it was Steve. Moving out of the bathroom and towards the other end of the house, he pushed the button to answer.

“Steve, how are you?”

“Is Tiff around?”

The way the words were spoken and his friend’s tone put Mat on full alert. Something was wrong. And he didn’t like it. His gut told him to prepare himself.

“She’s having a bath. What’s up? Need to talk to her?”

“Are you able to give her some bad news? Or would you rather get her?”


There was a moment of silence before Steve asked, “Which way, mate?”


“Tim, Tiff’s dad, is in hospital with a heart attack.”
