Thaddeus Nolan is the quintessential alpha male. Drop a pampered rich girl into the Australian outback, add a healthy dose of male sex appeal with no time or patience for the demands of a woman wearing high heels, and you either get a serious battle of wills or a firestorm of chemistry. A mix-up in travel plans thrusts Chelsea Bowden of Boston into the midst of a group of uncouth men set to journey through the Australian desert, guided by the disturbingly attractive Thaddeus Nolan. Expecting the amenities of a posh Sydney hotel suite, Chelsea finds herself instead having to bear up to the rigors of a life that is altogether unfamiliar to her. She suffers the swarming flies, punishing heat, masses of mosquitoes, and a backside bruised from being forced to travel by camel, yet still the desert manages to captivate her with its beauty and mystery. Under a relentless sun, through the trials of an unforgiving land, she comes to know herself like never before. And she realizes that she is engaged to the wrong man. It's Thaddeus Nolan she wants, the rugged outdoorsman who doesn't fit into her circle of society.

I've read all of Cassandra Ormand's currently available books, and I cannot wait for her next book to be available. I have never been disappointed by this author. Every book is different. She has a real talent. I highly recommend anything she writes.
This is a fun romp. If you like adventure and romance, this is the book for you. Thad is a strong, challenging character who embodies the Austalian male. Perfect to set off Chelsea's equally stubborn ways. I highly recommend this book for any romance lover.
This is a fun read. I liked it from beginning to end. It had a lot of heart, and a lot of adventure, and the 'scenery' was fantastic. I felt like I was in Australia. And Thad is a hero that captures any heart.
Do we really know ourselves? One mistake after another shows us how people from two different worlds, life styles, can find their true self. Easy reading and makes you wonder what you would do if the same things happened to you.
