City girl and serial non-dater, Affrica Clarke travels to Boulia, Australia, to investigate the environmental impacts of the local mining company. Unless she proves herself and wins that promotion, she’ll lose so much more than a pay rise. Yet everything goes wrong the moment she lands in the outback. With no research equipment, only skimpy clothes packed by her best friend to help her score a date, and a tight deadline to submit her report, she’s screwed. So when a sexy cowboy offers to play chauffeur, she’s all over it. But she’s there to shut down the mining activities, not fawn over the guy who’s supporting them, no matter how sizzling the attraction between them.
Billionaire jackaroo, Sam Preston tempts fate as an adrenaline junkie, living each day as if it were his last. Angry and wounded, he’s in town to sell his cattle ranch to the local mining company and be done with his past—until he meets hapless city-chick Affrica, who has no clue about surviving in the desert. Sam doesn’t know how to stop being a daredevil even though Affrica reminds him of the happiness he once had.
Can Sam let go of the past before he loses the one person who's finally breathed new life into him, or is it not possible to truly tame a jackaroo?
Affricka needed the promotion. Not for her, well, maybe for her own self-esteem, but she had a more important reason. Besides she deserved it. She cared about the environment and making sure mining companies like the one in Boulia weren't abusing the land was important to her. This was her chance to do both. It seemed that everything was against her. Her equipment was delayed. The jerk of a landowner refused to let her take samples she needed to compare to the one who'd made the original complaint. Just to begin with.
Sam didn't want to revisit the memories of being home. No option if he was to sell the ranch his father left him. His brother didn't want it or Sam. They'd been a broken family since he'd left. Then this woman, this hot, not-dressed-for-the-outback piece wanted to mess up his sale.
When he realized he'd been a jerk he tried to make up for it with the lady who just deserved better.
While both decided getting involved wasn't in their best interest, fate and nature seemed to disagree.
This is a good romance with characters with secrets you'll want to know, family mending you'll want to see, and danger you'll want them to escape. Not to mention the romance you'll be rooting for. Don't miss this one. The Outback at its best and worst.
