‘Warm-hearted and authentic...this debut will take you to the heart of the outback’ — bestselling Australian author Alissa Callen
It’s hard to hide love in the outback...
Hallie Harris has gone as far away as possible to escape the city and the humiliating revelations of her last relationship. Love is the last thing on her mind when she arrives at Karilga, a remote cattle station in outback Queensland, to take on the post of teacher to eight lively children. That is, until she locks eyes on aerial mustering pilot Ryan Walker. But how could a highly skilled pilot who lives and breathes the land ever fall for this hot-mess city girl?
Quiet and reserved, Ryan’s used to chasing down wayward cattle and flying his helicopter in the dangerous dead man’s zone. But when it comes to the beautiful girl from the city, he's out of his element. When country larrikin and Ryan’s best mate, Jackson, pursues the new teacher first, Ryan buries his head - and his feelings - in the red dirt. What’s the point when Jackson always gets the girl?
But the spark between Hallie and Ryan can’t be ignored. In the small tightknit community of Karilga Station, can they keep their feelings on the down low? Or will everything the outback has to throw at them destroy any chance of building a home together?
