Ellen Williams needs to disappear. Her bright career as an international jockey is washed away as she’s implicated in a horse doping scam—one of the worst crimes in the racing world. Humiliated, alone, and on the run, she answers a job advertisement in a place that’s far from her working life. The job, however, is everything that Ellen isn’t—cook and housekeeper on one of the largest Cattle Stations in Australia.
Alexander McKenzie is a desperate man. His top hand will quit if he doesn’t find a suitable housekeeper and cook. However, Alexander knows he’s made a mistake hiring Ellen—she’s going to be like the last four young women he fired—suffering through the trials of the Outback to hunt a wealthy husband and the last thing Alexander needs is a wife.
Ellen knows from experience that men are nothing but liars, and trouble—they destroy careers—and hearts. She’ll not let the likes of Alexander McKenzie beat her, after all how hard can managing a house and kitchen be?
Amid the lies and secrets that come with cattle rustlers and racehorses, Ellen must find her place in a new world. But when Ellen’s past catches up with her, Alexander’s intervention will either bring their lives together or explode them apart!
