How far would you go for love? For desire? For protection? Sylvie Falk knows she shouldn't trust the Garrison – the foreign invaders who are terrorising her home whilst guarding the world’s last known fossil fuel reserves. Or at least she did, until Lieutenant Will Maur saved her from torture and death at Port Angelsund’s Limestone Terminal checkpoint. Unable to resist the strong, sensual and lethal lieutenant, Sylvie falls hard. And fast. But can she trust him? And can he trust her – a young, beautiful patriot who is the sister of a wanted rebel? Watch Over Me is the perfect read for anyone who has enjoyed Hiroshima Mon Amour, The Handmaid’s Tale or Romeo and Juliet. Set in a dystopian but not-too-distant future, this enthralling read will change the way you look at mobile phones, drones and how governments manage the world’s dwindling energy resources. And it will give you a greater appreciation for how the actions of soldiers (on both sides) irrevocably damage the innocent civilians caught in the crossfire.
Watch Over Me is Claire Corbett’s second novel. Corbett, an author and casual academic, completed a Bachelor of Arts in Communication at UTS in 1990 and a Master of Arts in Writing in 1997.
