En enda hemlighet

En enda hemlighet Falling

High Stakes #2

30-year-old field surgeon Isobel Sørensen has witnessed the horrors of war but refuses to let it make her jaded. Cool under pressure, yes, but never uncaring. Isobel is about to depart Sweden again, this time for a pediatric hospital in Chad, when she learns that the aid organization she partly runs is on the verge of collapse. The reason: someone has cut off their funds. Isobel quickly finds out that it’s none other than Alexander de la Grip – a man she once told to go to hell.

Where Isobel is caring, Alexander is couldn’t-care-less. The youngest son of the de la Grip family, he’s used to a certain lifestyle, and it’s enabled him to distract himself from the emptiness waiting to engulf him. Alexander’s and Isobel’s meeting is a massive clash of worlds and agendas. Both are confident that they will be the one to walk away with what they want, but the question is: Will they still be able to do so after knowing the truth about one another?


  • “Outstanding. /…/ Complex, fully realized characters, settings that range from Swedish castles to a barely equipped hospital with exhausted personnel and dying children, and a dangerous rescue mission with a breathtaking finale make this a page turner to savor.”

    Publishers Weekly *Starred review*, US

  • “Simona Ahrnstedt is a great deal more vivacious, wise, funny and exciting than E.L. James ever was in the Fifty Shades books.”

    Dagens Nyheter, Sweden

  • “[Simona Ahrnstedt] knows the genre’s expectations like the back of her hand and she fulfills them skillfully and entertainingly with a flirtatious twinkle in her eye. The pace is fast, the intrigues are riveting and the chemistry between the couples sparkles inside as well as outside the bedroom.”

    Sydsvenska Dagbladet, Sweden

  • “The book is perfect for those who want to let themselves be seduced. /…/ Many people call Simona Ahrnstedt Sweden’s uncrowned queen of romance and Falling only confirms this.”
