Margaret Tanner

Author Margaret Tannerabout this book: This story is starts in 1854 on the Australian goldfields at Ballarat in Victoria. Ballarat was one of the richest goldfields in the world at the time, and with fortunes being dug out of the ground, goldseekers poured in from Europe, America and Canada, not to mention the locals who left their jobs in their thousands to make their fortunes on the goldfields.

A Wicked Deception is a fictionalised acount of what happened to one family. I have researched the subject and actually walked over the old goldfields.

The Eureka Stockade rebellion, was fought between the miners,the English redcoats and the police. The miners were fighting for justice from the authorities, but the short and bloody battle changed the lives of many including my heroine and her family.

With a price on her head, Melanie O'Dea escapes rebellion on the Australian goldfields, only to find betrayal and danger on the Yorkshire moors.

Danger, seduction and betrayal in 1850's Australia

Melanie O'Dea is caught up in the maelstrom of the Eureka Stockade rebellion. On the run from the authorities, she accepts help from a friend, The Honorable Michael Guilford. Michael seduces her, callously discards her, and leaves Melanie to fend for herself. Will she be strong enough to survive such treachery?
