Product Description

When English society playboy Jonathan Hartley-Huntley is sent to outback Australia after a disastrous affair with his editor, all he wants is to take a few pictures, do a quick interview and get back to his usual life of luxury as soon as possible. Until he meets his host, the irresistible Charlie Hughes, and suddenly the back of beyond is a lot more appealing.

Running the pub is a labour of love for Charlie and she has no desire to ever leave the tiny town of Bindundilly. That is, until Jon discovers an old painting that raises questions about both their lives. Charlie impulsively decides to follow him to London, and as the feelings between them begin to deepen, she starts to wonder if there's more to life than the pub. But at Jon's family home, the magnificent Hartley Hall, they become acutely aware of the differences between them, and it soon seems clear they have no future together – especially if Jon's mother has her way. 

Family and tradition threaten the course of true love in this warm and witty novel from the author of Outback Bride and Her Italian Aristocrat

Louise Reynolds has a very penetrating eye and a very sensitive ear, and her writing reflects these attributes beautifully in 'Red Dirt Duchess'. If you love Dorothea Mackellar's wonderful classic poem 'My Country' then the descriptions and settings in this book will resonate with you. The reader is effortlessly transported to the vivid landscapes of outback Australia and the muted surrounds of Hartley Hall in England, and the author has captured the idiosyncrasies of vocabularies and conversations so well that the reader never has any trouble identifying which character is speaking. It's all done with style, empathy, and sympathy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book as an entertaining read which made me laugh out loud in places. This romance with a slight twist of mystery is refreshing, flows well and is entirely believable and convincing within its genre. I recommend 'Red Dirt Duchess', the third romance from Louise Reynolds, and I look forward with keen anticipation to her next offering.

Red Dirt Duchess is such an enjoyable read. From outback Australia to the Aristocrat style in London, the author took me on a believable journey experiencing two vast lifestyles. Charlie was adorable and yet I admired her strength to stand up for what she believed in, and willing to forgo love to fight for it. At times I thought I knew where Louise was taking the plot, then a sudden twist and turn of events, she would throw me completely of guard. The author's voice and tone is beautiful and professional, which also added to why I couldn't put the book down. Thank you for such a wonderful story that left me thinking about the characters long after I switched off my kindle.

Louise Reynolds does it again! Fabulous, exotic outback Australia this time superbly blended with English Aristocracy. The beauty of Louise's characters is how they unfold. When we meet them, we see the persona they share with the world, but the more you read, the more we get to know them, layer by intriguing layer until there are moments that make you cry and laugh.
Red Dirt Duchess is such a lovely, contemporary read that has surprising depth, leaving you thinking about the book long afterwards. A thoroughly satisfying, beautiful read! Thanks Louise!

Enjoyed the book, but fel it was a little far fetched. Someone had a good imagination. Could relate to the outback.
