Simple Truths by Michelle Dalton

Having worked in Doctors without Borders, Rochelle Le Roux has seen the best and the worst of humankind and now she just wants to live a quiet life in South Africa. But when her path crosses that of the only man she’s ever loved she is forced to consider that maybe fate has brought her back for a reason.

South Africa is a country in strife. But corrupt governments are only one of the many problems plaguing this dynamic rainbow nation. A ring of human traffickers is stealing children and smuggling them into North Africa. The ring leader, a prominent figure in the local Cape Malay community, is a man with everything to lose and even more to gain.

Lieutenant Thomas Campbell has dedicated his life to protecting his country and serving the South African Navy. But he will never forget that stolen kiss beneath the stars and a heartbroken beauty which has haunted his life for sixteen years.

But in a country fraught with danger, adversity, and cultural differences, can Thomas and Rochelle cross the divides and overcome the simple truths to find their forever love?
