New South Wales, 1807

It was a vast land of wild beauty and wilder passions; a frontier as yet untamed by man; a place where women had few rights and fewer pleasures. For a female convict like flame-haired Casey O'Cain, it was a living nightmare.

Exquisitely beautiful, utterly helpless, she was expected to cater to her master's every whim. And from the first, arogant, handso

DNF because you are the weakest link goodbye

I think I'm done with Ms. Mason unless I get another book by chance. *shrugs*

***2.5 stars***

First off, I have to say I was hoping this was going to be a great book about Australia. However I was indeed disappointed, by both the storyline, because I found it far fetched; and the fact that Dare, the hero, irritated the crap out of me.

The storyline:

I found the fact that Cassy was captured by bush wranglers, three count 'em three times, and not raped highly unbelievable. Come on how many bad guys would stand around and talk about when they were going to rape a woman? The bus

Passionate, thrilling, sensual and a definitive page turner, classic Connie Mason, always making me swoon.

Too many misunderstandings!

I've read several of Connie Mason's books, and I have to say this is my least favorite. I love that she utilizes actual historic events in her books, but this felt more like she interjected those events in a rather hurried and happenstance manner. The story just didn't flow. It was a jerky attempt to include history.
The relationship of the H and h was silly....I mean, the moment he touches her she crumbles everytime no matter the surrounding circumstances. And Casey is

As usual I enjoy Mason's novels. The romance happens quick (love at first sight doesn't work for me but that is often the way Mason goes) but the plot that allows the characters to develop makes up for it. However, they spend more time apart and her more time not trusting him then they actually do together.
Sooo it was a little like 'Caress and Conquer' ... down under! It was trash but it was melodramatic entertaining trash.
After several years....I've not forgot this series...One of the few I've read taking place in Australia.
