4 1/2 Stars! ~~~ This cover is exactly how I pictured Meredith and Hal; right down to the adorable dimples in Hal's cheeks when he smiles!

Meredith West had taken on more than she bargained for when she traveled to the Australian Outback to find her sister. She'd thought it would be a simple matter; find Lucy and the two of them would head home to England where their friend Richard lay in a coma. Richard had been pining for Lucy, and his family was positive that just hearing Lucy's voice would br

I wanted to read a Harlequin novel and so I picked this one at random...It was so random that had I read the title I wouldn't have touched it because I hate cowboys and western (even in Australia) stories but by the time I figured that out I had already started reading and was really enjoying it.

The plot is a very melodramatic one: One woman falls in love with a man who is in love with her sister and when the sister finds out she runs off and the man is so upset he gets in an accident and ends u

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the love story of Hal and Meredith. I didnt mind that the plot may seem not particularly original (opposites attract, boss-housekeeper, love triangle gone wrong, etc). The character build-up made by Ms Hart for Hal and Meredith made it a very engaging read. Both Hal and Meredith have strong personalities and we had glimpses of their childhood memories which explains their respective take on love and life. In this story, we are also shown H and h that are very real, ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Both characters come off as normal people: strong, independent and attractive, without being stunningly beautiful or supermodels. As far as secondary characters go, I was a bit confused on who loves whom & who are friends only. Despite this minor comment, I found this book to be a great read about going after what you want and learning to trust and love again.

After a haphazard career spent working and travelling around the world, I stumbled into romance writing as a way to fund a PhD. My first book, A Sweeter Prejudice, came out in 1991, and since then I've written a further 59 books, some of which have won awards in the US and the UK.
I live in York, a historic city in the north of England, and waste the best part of my days planning trips away or on
