This is the second book in the "South Landers" series. I have not read the first book yet so for me it was a stand alone book. Although after having this book, I must get the first one! Our heroine is Ella Beaufort who work on a family sheep farm in Australia. The hero is Cal Lynton who is not what he seems. Cal is trying to prove himself and goes about as a common person other than the rich aristocrat. Ella with sisters to supports doesn't know of Cal true self and thinks that they can only have a brief time together as she has to find a rich man to marry to help support them. Cal is quickly taken in by Ella but when she tells him that she can only settle for someone with money, Cal is shocked. This starts the story of how they had a lot of hard feelings and dis-trust to overcome to get to the end of their love story.
