no further comment needed although review asks for more words than I wish to add
The gorgeous evil mother that lies, manipulates and belittles her daughter (and lusts after the hero) looms through the story. Mel, the heroine, is not the typical downtrodden little Mary Sue Martyr, but a strong career woman who is still so messed up over her mother's lack of love and position as both housekeeper and mistress to the hero's grandfather that she continues to rebuff the hero time and time again. She feels she will never fit in with his lifestyle and his "people". One of the more idiotic other women wannabees actually says, "She's not one of us," and is immediately smacked down by the other wannabe as a snob. She had felt the same way but at least feels guilty about it.
Class and social conscious in the Australian Outback run amuck as the hero tries to convince the heroine they need to be together, but her emotional damage and shame continue to keep them apart. The mother really did a case on Mel, but at some point my sympathies lay with the hero. For an alpha hero, he sure was patient.
I'm not going to get into the rest, but it's more the heroine's journey to find her father than the buildup of a romance. I enjoyed it, but would have preferred a slightly more involved ending.
I was glad that the heroine's real father's family was high society and wealthy as I think she would have continued to stonewall the H.
