Faye Hall ~ an interview and her novel ~ My Gift to You

This material is not safe for work.

Faye Hall

Faye Hall's passion driven, mystery filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during the late 1800's.

Each of her novels bring something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.

Each of her books tell of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder.

These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland.

Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.

Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Now, tell us about My Gift to You

Rush Mullens saw her parents, Joseph and Carmen, being murdered before her eyes as an 8 year old child– ten cloaked figures destroying her once peaceful life.  She did not know the men responsible, but she would find them.  She wanted revenge…she needed it. 
When Lord Justin Maston came to take her in to his care, she vowed she would use this opportunity to find the murderer’s she chased.  She did not think she would also find a boy she could love more than her own life.

Bailey Maston had never supposed to mean any more to her than a friend, one who could protect her from the new lifestyle she had been forced into.  What he had become though was a young man who could take her breath away, and steal her heart.
Rush knew Bailey knew nothing of her family, or the life she was raised to live.  She doubted should he learn the truth that he would understand.  She could not let him endanger the revenge she so craved to seek.  Nor could she ignore that she was willing to risk all – her past, her life, her reputation - just to sample an ounce of passion from this man.

Bailey Maston wanted to find a woman – the perfect woman – to give his heart to.  He wanted to trust that such a person could exist that would never betray him.  Everything he had seen in his young life, both at home and in society, told him what a foolish dream this was.  Such a woman could never exist.  Even if she did, he doubted she would ever willingly give her heart to a love-starved boy like him.
Foolish though his dream was, Bailey could not help being drawn to the young orphaned girl his parents had taken in. 
He wanted her friendship and the attention she so willingly offered to him. 
He craved to feel the passion he knew was hidden deep inside her. 
What he did not want was to fall in love with her.

When Bailey finally discovers the truth of Rush’s life, and the revenge she was enacting, he feels betrayed.  Foolish though it was, he hopes that beyond this betrayal may yet lay the woman he has always yearned to find…a woman he craved to give his well-guarded heart to.

Her long black hair fell softly around her naked shoulders, loose silken strands gently escaping, caressing her bare breasts. Her dark, piercing eyes followed her caressing hands, her soft fingertips lightly touching his bare flesh. His eyes moving, absorbing inch by glorious inch of her bare flesh, he felt arousing warmth filling him.

This naked innocent was more exquisite, more breathtaking than he could have dared to imagine possible. She was so much more than he ever thought any woman could be.

When she reached for him, her soft fingers teasingly taking his jerking organ, he was sure he would pass out from the pleasure he felt.

At the very least, he knew he would soon disgrace himself in her hand if she didn’t stop her teasing attentions. Moving his hands to hers, he tried to push her away.

Slowly her naturally pink, almost blood red lips pouted, her hand gradually ceasing its attentions.

"Please, Bailey. I want this . . . want you."

Focusing in on all the beautiful, dark features of this girl, Bailey could feel himself being filled by a strange, though intense, feeling. He knew he should refuse this woman's advances…

. . . Society dictated he should. . . 

. . . His life dictated he must. . . 

Lifting his hand to her face, he let his fingers lightly touch her naturally blushed cheek.
In this minute, he knew he couldn’t refuse her.

He was lost to her.

"Rush. . . "
