Product Description

Product Description

From Escape Publishing's Queen of historical Australian romance comes a new story about a privileged member of Australian's colonial squattocracy, a bushranger, and a very special horse.

Born into the rough, but still privileged society of the Australian colonial landowners, Lilibeth Dungarven finds herself married, widowed, and, much to her distress, back under her father’s thumb, all before her twenty-first birthday. Determined not to forgo her dream of breeding the perfect racehorse, Lilibeth ignores propriety and sets out to restore the family’s flagging fortunes.

When Captain Tom and his mismatched band of bushrangers stumble across a mob of the best horses they’ve ever seen, and the daughter of the famed Dungarven horse stud, they know their fortunes have changed. Their catch is worth a king’s ransom. All they have to do is hold the daughter for seven days. How hard can it be to control the pampered daughter of a colonial upstart?

Lilibeth Dungarven, is back living under her father's roof after her husband and her mother were killed in a horrific riding accident. Living with her father is not the ideal situation, but Lilibeth knows someone has to take charge of the property seeing as her father has taken up drinking and is no longer capable of making important decisions.

Whilst Lilibeth, Bonnie and George are out herding race horses to Sydney that will be shipped to India they suddenly come to a dead stop and find themselves surrounded by bushrangers. Glancing over the horses Captain Thomas Roscomon, thought this was his lucky day as he soon identifies the, Dungarven branding which meant good bloodlines that were worth a lot of money and there was no way he was going to let them pass him by.

Sending George back to Lily's father with a ransom note stating that five hundred pounds was required for her return and to meet in seven days at The Settler's Arms. In the meantime the rest of them would continue with the herding, but now it was about to become a lot tougher. Lily must now make sure the horses come to no harm and arrive safely and on time. Dealing with the horses is one thing, but dealing with Captain Tom and his men would be an entirely different story.
Will Lily's father pay the ransom? And will the horses arrive safely or will something go wrong?

I thoroughly enjoyed this truly beautifully written Australian story. This story is set around Wollombi and after reading this book it's a place I would dearly love to visit one day. This historical romance really was a very enjoyable read right from the start all the way to the very end. A fabulous read by a very talented Aussie author which I have no hesitation in HIGHLY recommending.

With thanks to the author for my ARC to read.

I love the way the description immediately pulls the reader into this story. I have to admit I love a small town story and this doesn't disappoint. Add bloodstock to the mix and this farm girl is very happy indeed.
Lily has a hard life and the reason becomes clear near the end of the book but I fell in love with her in the very beginning when she stands up to the bushranger.
Love a feisty heroine, it will win me over every time.

The rugged Australian bush demands as much from its women as its men. Lily Dungarven, heiress to the famed Dungarven horse stud, is no exception. She rides with more skill and daring than most men, is no stranger to a gun and is determined to be the mistress of her own fate. Which includes driving a mob of prime horseflesh from the outback to Sydney, for shipment to India.

Tom Roscomon and his small band of bushrangers have hatched a safe, easy plan to steal the mob of horses and ransom Dungarven’s daughter. His scheme deteriorates into a battle between himself and Lily—for possession of the horses and to suppress the flaming passion which sparks between them. But there is more to Tom’s scheme than meets the eye and unless he can calm Lily’s temper long enough to carry it out, his reputation and possibly his life will be forfeit.

The talented Tea Cooper never disappoints. Another heart-felt rural Australian adventure set in and around her hometown of Wollombi. I was intrigued by the tangible descriptions of her settings (and am determined to visit), captivated by her heroine’s vivacious, impulsive personality, “Lilibeth Dungarven’s cry of pure pleasure soared skywards as the massive black stallion rose to clear the fallen tree,…” and loved the fast-paced adventure which keeps the reader guessing until the end. The author’s historical and geographical research is impeccable and her use of sensory description and figurative language ensures the reader is fully engaged from the first page to the last. But don’t stop at this book – I have loved all her books!

5 STARS definitely.
I just loved this story and its originality!!
Lily and Tom are two very different people, who most likely never would have met accept for Tom turning Highway Man.
Many of the folk who lived in the Australian early days found it difficult to survive and Tom was one of these.
His decision to kidnap Lily who he considered to be a well-to-do settlers daughter for ransom, didn't work out as he expected.
And for Lily, he wasn't the bad man she expected. There is an immediate attraction between the two that cannot be denied.
However, neither one is going to give in to the other.
I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall on many occasions with them.
This is all I will say without ruining the story, which is a good one.
