After her uncharacteristic behavior made headline news, buttoned-up Olivia Balfour has been sent far away from home.

Olivia Balfour had been involved in a scandal (seriously that slap and confrontation w/ her sister was a scandal? What about the stuff in the news today? Have you seen the celebs getting sent to a time out?) and her father sent her away to grow some. Off to Australia the belle is sent to stay w/ Clint McAlpine. Of course, he has her number – don’t they all – yet he really doesn’t know half of what he thinks he does! Olivia also believes the worst of Clint but they both come to enlightenment as w ...more
Olivia es la mayor de las hijas del magnate inglés Oscar Balfour. Es la hermana gemela de Bella, conocida por su sobre exposición en los medios y su vida de frivolidad. Olivia vive a la sombra de su hermana, ya que considera que con su belleza y carisma no hay quien se le compare.
Es conocida por ser una mujer fría, reservada. Su vida se divide entre hacer de anfitriona de su padre, a cuidar de sus hermanas pequeñas y todas sus obras de Caridad.

I can't believe how long it took me to finish this book. I would have rated it a one- or two-star selection but the descriptions of Australia, Darwin and surrounding area were fantastic. You almost want to go there.

Other than that, Olivia and Clint's story was v.very boring. I found almost no hooks in the story to keep me reading and it took me four days to finish 192 pp. That's crazy. I had to literally force myself to finish this book chapter by chapter.
I have been noticing that with the Austrialian novels i dont like the main guys as much - overly macho. the magic bit was a little out of placel. but i did love reading about the outback, the wildlife and the plants and landscape that was cool.
I liked one of the secondary characters better than the two main characters in the book, the book was ok but really nothing fantastic.

it was an ok read nothing extraordinary and too slow paced and lacking the usual passion and chemistry I expect from a harlequin..
the last book in the series of the Balfour Brides. It lived up to the standard of most other books in the series, just mediocre.
Amé el epilogo OMG lindos los 8 libros. Definitivamente mi serie Harlequin favorita ^^
Carol Storm
Way too old-fashioned. The author is giving shout outs to Joan Collins?!?!
Only finished because it was the last in a series.
Tonya Warner
Last in The Balfour Brides series.
