attract, but can they find love in the Outback bush country?
Harlequin Romance (September 2007)
City girl Meredith West comes the Australian bush country to find her
sister. Hal Granger just doesn't like city girls --- they won't fit
into his remote cattle station life or his heart. Or so he thinks! One
look at each other spells nothing but trouble but when opposites open
their hearts, sometimes love goes beyond attraction. When Hal and
Meredith meet, all the mental lists kept for the perfect man or perfect
woman just go right out the window. When these two meet Mr. Perfect and
Miss Right take on a whole new meaning --- no list can ever describe
love from the heart!
At the beginning when Meredith and Hal are on the long ride to the
cattle station, they talk without the kind of hesitation strangers
might experience, forced together in a car with little in common.
Jessica Hart's use of dialogue is superb in this romance. The reader
actually sees and feels the hero and heroine getting to know each other
as their romance builds. Hal is a superb hero, handsome and rugged yet
even when he is gruff, Jessica Hart allows the reader to see his
lovable, tender heart. Meredith, a frantic organizer in times of
stress, certainly shakes up this remote all-male cattle station with
her feminine presence. Her intelligence and spunk together with her
compassionate heart may just be the perfect combination for her new
boss so set in his ways. Despite all the sparring and differences,
Meredith and Hal's ability to talk to one another makes their
attraction feel so right.
Jessica Hart instills enjoyable humor into this romance. The shirt
scene was fantastic! Jessica Hart has a gift for stirring the reader's
emotions with laughter and tenderness. The reader wants to know the
characters and cheer for them. OUTBACK
BOSS, CITY BRIDE is a delightful, heart-warming and emotionally
satisfying read. A beautifully written romance!
