It all began as an assignment. Go deep into the Outback of Australia, to the magnificent Djangala cattle station, explore its wonders and secrets and write a new novel. If it only could have been that simple. Her own ties to the Trevelyan family leaves Genevieve Grenville with a host of questions, ones she hopes she’ll have answered during her visit.

However, Genevieve is unprepared for the inspiring beauty of Djangala, the aloof coldness of Aunt Hester or the allure of the head of the cattle sta

A good read that definitely the dander up. Lots of secrets, steaminess, anger and aggravation, and a good (if somewhat anticlimatic) ending. A little slower moving but keeps the interest a little. Good characters and some self-growth. Good for passing time or a lazy-day read.

Started as a ghostwriter for Trevelyan and finding for an answer on her grand-aunt's death. Still working on her tasked but not realizing at once that she's falling in love already with Bret that cause her to fell to this guy upon finding all possible questions became a hard phase for her to seek all her instincts. Both mysterious personalities that all ended up by faith which seems to show they're the destined people to continue the relationship of their family. A nice book to read and deal wit ...more
Bret Trevelyan can't help but roll his eyes at his great-aunt's notions of creating a family history book. After all, there are some deep secrets in their past--some that don't need to be shared. But Hester, his old great-aunt, is hooked on the idea, and she hires a ghostwriter to come in and sort through thousands of pieces of material to create an intriguing book. Bret is skeptical about the project already, but something about Genevieve Grenville, the red-haired, beautiful ghostwriter, is str ...more

Good book. Genevieve went to Djangala to be the ghostwriter on a history of the Trevelyan family. This suited her very well, as one of her relatives had died there under mysterious circumstances and she wanted to find out more about it. When she arrived she felt an immediate attraction to, and connection with, Bret Trevelyan. Neither of them welcomed it, as both had been betrayed in the past. She also knew that if her connection to Catherine came out, he would be furious. I really enjoyed the st ...more

another of way's books set in australia with an extremely rich and masculine hero who is a station owner and basically master of his universe! don't know why but i'm hooked on her books. she does introduce a topic not ordinarily found in HP's, however--the old aunt of the hero was in love with another woman. this was by no means one of her best books, but not bad either. i still prefer her books from 20-30 years ago, when they had much more of a rich background and story.

Master of the Outback is a romance novel with an undercurrent of intrigue. The mysteries of the past are intruding on the present and impeding the developing relationships.

Another great book by Australian author Margaret Way. This book, like many from the author, is set in the Australian outback and, along with the great storyline, offers readers a glimpse of this environment and its cultural history. Highly recommended for those who enjoy getting lost in a good book.

Old fashioned romance

My mother read Margaret Way and when I began to read Roman escaped,I started with Margaret Way. Australia was the exotic local back then. This is a wonderful story with old secrets and personal drama to speed it along. A great read for a quiet night.
A good story. It's a contemporary romance, but it has an unexpected yet definite gothic feel to it.

Margaret Way was born and educated in the river city of Brisbane, Australia. Before her marriage she was a well-known pianist, teacher, vocal coach and accompanist, but her hectic musical career came to a halt when her son was born and the demands of motherhood dictated a change of pace.

On a fortuitous impulse she decided to try her hand at romance writing and was thrilled when Mills & Boon ac
