Overview

From bestselling young adult author of The Custodian novels, Alison Pensy releases her debut romance under the pen name Adrianna Blakeley. Mature content 18+

Sam, a clumsy, self-conscious young woman, sets off on a journey backpacking around Australia. Some would say she was 'running away'. Sam would tell you she wanted to 'find' herself. Whatever the reason for her travels, the very last thing she wants to 'find' is love, especially after her only other disastrous experience with it.

When money runs low, Sam finds a job working as a Jillaroo (Aussie cowgirl) on a sheep station in the Australian outback. Little does she know that the station owner's son just happens to be the gorgeous guy she sat next to on the plane over from England. The very same guy who tried to sweep her off her feet during her stopover in Bali.

If that wasn't enough to deal with, she has her suspicions that the sheep have launched a secret vendetta against her. Not to mention the spiders, the snakes, and the shearers...Oh my!

A heart-warming romantic comedy that will have you wondering if this is what would have happened if Bridget Jones had met The Man from Snowy River instead.

Meet the Author

Adrianna Blakeley is the pen name Alison Pensy uses to write her adult romance novels.

As the bestselling author of the young adult Custodian series, she decided to do this because she didn’t want to confuse her younger readers or get into trouble with their parents.

Alison was born and raised in England. She grew up near a medieval city, which is where much of the inspiration for her young adult books comes from.
Alison moved to the States in 2001, where she eventually settled near a small town in mid Missouri with her menagerie of animals. She also runs her own tax and accounting business and started writing when she became so fed up with the real world, she decided to create her own. Please visit her website at www.alisonpensy.com. She loves to hear from her readers, so feel free to leave comments or ask questions.

I don't normally go for this type of story I'm more of a fantasy type of girl but I;m soo glad I did. I was captivated from the moment I started reading. I loved this love story and was pleased that there was just enough (u know love) but not tooo much. It was the perfect mix.

Quotes from the Author's Facebook page: “Absolutely loved it!!!” “I loved A Summer Down Under as much, if not more than the Custodian books. You are a talented writer under any name and deserve to be read.” “I LOVED IT! This story is so relatable for alot of women and their own self worth/confidance. I just couldnt put this down. I kept urging Sam on in my mind and was so hoping that she would let daniel in. Its the kind of story you just want to read again and again.” “I loved your book I finished it in one day!”
