Libby is set on taming the outback as she takes over Quincy Station, but can she tame her rough neighbor, Nathan's, hardened heart as well?

Nathan Miller rattles Libby's nerves more than she cares to admit. He is the one person that stands between her and the family home that has been left to her. So why then does the man stir her up to such an extent, her body pulses with the need to have him? They do nothing but clash and snap at one another, and he makes no bones about the fact she shouldn't be Quincy's Station's new owner, but back in the city where he thinks she belongs.

Having had an unpleasant clash with a "city girl" once before, Nathan does not think Libby has it in her to stick it out. He refuses to give in to his urges. But when Mother Nature brings chaos to Quincy Station and threatens Libby's children, he'll either be proved right in his assumptions or find his barriers taken down by a stubborn woman and her kids.

I am a city girl who married a farmer and have visited the Australian outback, so you book is a must read.
Marjorie Carmony 6:25am November 25, 2012)

A strong feisty woman willing to take on what others said she could not accomplish is a real page turner for me. Many times I have found myself in this same position. Mind set and a willingness to roll up ones sleeves gets the job done every time.
Beth Charette 7:35am November 25, 2012)

A feisty heroine is a must - especially if she's feisty in a humorous way. I like heroines who muddle their way through, whose inner dialogues paint a completely different picture to the outward confidence they show.
Michelle Donaldson 7:57am November 25, 2012)

I must have that in my books. I hate one who is willing to sit back and let everything happen.
Debra Guyette 8:04am November 25, 2012)

Bonnie Capuano 9:50am November 25, 2012)

Cathy Phillips 12:55pm November 25, 2012)

Feisty... yes, I like heroines that are feisty... they add so much to a story with their personality.
Colleen Conklin 12:56pm November 25, 2012)

Feisty is a good word. Yes I like feisty heroines, but not those who are overly
pushy and too sure of themselves. I like them to retain a certain amount of
Patricia Barraclough 1:11pm November 25, 2012)

I do enjoy a feisty heroine---no simpering misses for me.
Sue Farrell 1:28pm November 25, 2012)

I love a feisty heroine. She has to be feisty against an arrogant hero, otherwise she won't be able to stand up to him.
Kai Wong 1:36pm November 25, 2012)

Feistiness makes me want to try out some of the same techniques on people I know.
Alyson Widen 1:50pm November 25, 2012)

I like a feisty herorine, one that doesn't like to get pushed around, I'm alittle feisty for I don't like a guy to push me around, like to get the job done...love to read this b.ook
Carole Fiore 2:14pm November 25, 2012)

The only type of feisty woman that I prefer is one who can either make a name for herself professionally, or one who can stand on her own two feet, and can make a life for herself, without being bossy or showy about it. There are still ways of being a lady, yet being a woman of the world. The haughty ones are a bit of a turn-off for me.
Peggy Roberson 3:01pm November 25, 2012)

Sounds like a delicious read. Feisty heroines are the best!
Monica Vargo 4:15pm November 25, 2012)

Wilma Frana 4:58pm November 25, 2012)

I love a story with a feisty heroine which makes it a real page-turner. Nothing wrong with a bossy, pushy woman! Love the storyline for this book already...can't wait to read it!
Linda Luinstra 5:00pm November 25, 2012)

Vicki Hancock 6:11pm November 25, 2012)

Christine Mead 11:10pm November 25, 2012)

I too like a feisty lady and by reading the comments, I see that I am not alone. A lady can't always depend on a man to get things done but they sure are nice to have around.
Kathleen Yohanna 11:51pm November 25, 2012)

A love a feisty heroine. I love her independence &
intelligence & wit.
Mary Preston 4:00am November 26, 2012)

Of course we like a feisty heroine, who wants to read about a shrinking violet! I enjoy tales where a heroine who may never have had to depend on her own resources is put in a position where she has to fight (in some way) and stands up to the challenge. That inspires us all to keep going, even when our own challenges may be a lot more domestic.
Clare O'Beara 8:41am November 26, 2012)

i love to read about a feisty heroines. They are always page turners for me especially if they are strong to there beliefs
Danielle McDonald 9:30am November 26, 2012)

I love nothing more than the development of a female that gathers her strength from within, no longer a cub but a true lioness. I think that in most cases that is how it is in life - women, I believe are more resiliant, have more strength that can come upon our shoulers.
Carla Carlson 9:35am November 26, 2012)

Sounds right up my alley. I love strong willed women who
aren't afraid to go out and make their own destiny.
