Chasing the Stars




Two lives collide. Loss. Lies. Love.

Olivia and her twin brother, Aidan, are heading alone back to Earth following the virus that completely wiped out the rest of their crew, and their family.
Nathan is part of a community heading in the opposite direction. But on their journey Nathan's ship is attacked and most of the community killed. Only a few survive.
Their lives unexpectedly collide. Nathan and Vee are instantly attracted to each other, deeply, head over heels - like nothing they have ever experienced.
But not everyone is pleased. And surrounded by rumours, deception - even murder - is it possible to live out a happy ever after . . . ?
