Overview

In this "spell-binding romance" (Publisher's Weekly), falsely accused, Irish-born convict Dominic Gallagher is shipped to the Australian Outback, where he is rescued from being beaten to death by Sarah Markham, the plain, no-nonsense, spinster daughter of a sheep baron.

Meet the Author

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved to write. My first book was a ten-page effort written at age five for my grandmother. Throughout grade school, high school and college I wrote for various school publications. When I was eighteen, my first professionally published piece—a humorous anecdote—appeared in Reader’s Digest. Still, it never occurred to me that I might become a professional writer. I aimed for a career as a lawyer and was actually in law school when I sold my first book. When that happened, the world lost a would-be lawyer and gained a writer. That book, which is still in print, is Island Flame, and it was published when I was twenty-four. Since then, I’ve written over forty books, which regularly appear on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists, among others. The mother of three sons, I read, I write, and I chauffeur children. That’s my life.

This story was worth the read, but it could have been better. I don't mind if characters clash a bit, but they fought like mad throughout the entire book. I don't like having characters fight like cats and dogs for hundreds of pages then suddenly be in love. The other thing that bothered me was the descriptions of Australia. At the time this story took place, Australia was suffering from a terrible drought and heat wave. I was suffering reading about the people and animals suffering. Ick. Definitely NOT romantic scenery. Still worth the read, though.

This is the second book I have read of Ms. Robards, and it is great. As soon as Sarah throws herself in front of Dominic from being beaten on the ship of slaves, you feel glad someone stopped the madness, and you can feel the chemistry with these two at her fathers ranch. Until Dominic kidnaps her for a couple of days, that's where the fun comes in. It is one heck of a ride. This book is filled with laughs, romance and heartfelt contentment. Believe me, you will enjoy it.

Despite being a convict he cleary has all the power. Hero is a classic arrogant domineering alpha-male. Great read!
