Product description

Product Description

When a smooth-talking, sophisticated city girl comes striding into town on her stiletto heels, he's the last person who wants to notice...

When Jenna McLean gets roped into attending a matchmaking ball in a small country town, she holds no illusions of meeting the man of her dreams.  A no-nonsense magazine editor, Jenna doesn’t believe in leaving love to chance, which is why she’s developed Marriage Material – a fool-proof framework for husband hunting. Shearers and farmhands need not apply.

Sheep grazier Luke Tanner has met women like Jenna before, and knows not to waste his time. With the drought dragging on and bushfire season around the corner, the last thing he needs is a spoiled city girl like Jenna adding to his problems. He'll help out with the ball because it's good for the community, but he won't dance, he won't flirt, and he definitely won't be matched.

It's been a long dry season, but everyone knows when it rains, it pours. 



Praise for BREAKING THE DROUGHT:

'Rural romance is one of my most favourite sub-genres of romance fiction, and Breaking the Drought is definitely a lovely example of it.' — My Written Romance

'Breaking The Drought is a fun novel that takes a city girl totally out of her comfort zone and places her in a small country farming town that is slowly dying for a multitude of reasons.' — All the Books I Can Read

Loved this story. The setting. The characters. The challenges arising from the conflict were belivable and relatable for me. I do believe this author is the next big voice on Australian Rural Romance and I can't wait for more.

Our hero, Luke, is dedicated, sexy and determined to keep his promise to his brother at the cost of his own happiness. He had a mission and nothing would get in his way. But our heroine bursts into his life and tears at his resolve. They both know they want each other, openly admit they have 'chemistry' but that isn't the point. The point is their lives are so different,
what they each want for the future just makes it impossible for them to even contemplate starting anything with each other.

So, logically speaking, that should be the end of it. But it's only the beginning and with the slight nudge of some endearing support characters and the colourful townsfolk, love manages to find it's wonderful way. If you love the rural romance books like me, this is a definite winner.

This was a little over the top . No man will go out of there way to rescue a girl, like he had as all men are either sadistic or weak . I got through the storie with a few laughs and some giggles as it was so unbelievable. Through experiance i have found out this . I have read some of your books and found them good. Your stories are great to read whilst traveling in a car.
I just thought thst this was over exaggerated to make a story and to fill in a timeline your heart was not in it. I do believe you could of done better with this story and you have with some of the others. I will continue to read your stories , as i like something light to read after reading real crime.

An incredibly sweet story. Loved it to pieces. I've still got the warm and fuzzies:)

Jenna and Luke are fantastic characters and Ms Ireland manages to do a fish out of water tale without having the fish turning into an elephant to fit into the story. Jenna is a hard working, fashion conscious city girl who finds herself in the country on a friend's insistence they check out a Bachelors' Ball Weekend. There she meets Luke a farmer who's dealing with a whole lot of guilt over his brother's death and who doesn't see himself as a love prospect for any lady.

What I loved about this story was the character's authenticity. At no stage did the romance feel forced and the conflicts felt very real. The resolution was fantastic and left me with that good book glow.

Oh, and Ms. Ireland's description is fantastic. I'm a country girl and she really took me back to country Australia. There was one scene where she described a shearing demonstration and I really felt like I was there. Simply brilliant. Looking forward to the next.

I gave this book 5 STARS because it has a GOOD story line and is very well written.
A city girl goes to a country town for a bit of fun with her friend, after being let down by a man she thought she loved.
There are many surprises in store for Jenna and a man she meets named Luke.... so read the story and discover this exciting romance for yourself.. You will find yourself wanting to jump in and help this couple every inch of the way.

I first read "Feels Like Home" and really enjoyed that book, so I thought I'd give this one a go too. I have to admit I got around 40% through but then couldn't finish it. My beef is this: the main protagonist, Jenna, and her friend Brooke went swimming with their respective love interests. Brooke fell and hurt her leg. Jenna's love interest, Luke, is a trained doctor, so he does the emergency thing and gets her into the other guy's rattley old truck. Apparently he thinks her leg is broken, and she needs to be driven to the nearest hospital, which is 100 kms away. Jenna and Luke then proceed to ABANDON Brooke and Rob and go off to a party! Now seriously, would you leave your best friend, who has just possibly broken her ankle, to the mercies of a man she only met the day before, for him to take her to a rural hospital where neither woman has any idea if Brooke will be treated adequately, and go off to a bush dance? Especially if that means she has to endure a drive of over an hour in a farm truck with no support? And keep in mind that Luke has supposedly been training to be a doctor, and what kind of doctor would just abandon their patient like that?
To make matters worse, at the bush dance, instead of fretting about her friend, Jenna stands around being horrified by the line dancing and even more horrified that Luke is performing with the country music band. No sir, she will not join in the dancing! Someone might see her and take a photo and then it would be all over the gossip web-sites and wouldn't that be dreadful?! Anyway, that was around about where I finished with this story. Jenna was a condescending bitch, Luke had major guilt issues and I could not feel any interest on whether they could overcome their complete and utter wrongness for each other.

A light hearted easy read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. A little predictable but still manages to pull you in.
