Product description

Product Description

He wants to throw away his future. She’ll do whatever it takes to save hers… Even tame a wild Aussie cowboy.

City girl and serial non-dater, Affrica Clarke travels to Boulia, Australia, to investigate the environmental impacts of the local mining company. Unless she proves herself and wins that promotion, she’ll lose so much more than a pay rise. Yet everything goes wrong the moment she lands in the outback. With no research equipment, only skimpy clothes packed by her best friend to help her score a date, and a tight deadline to submit her report, she’s screwed. So when a sexy cowboy offers to play chauffeur, she’s all over it. But she’s there to shut down the mining activities, not fawn over the guy who’s supporting them, no matter how sizzling the attraction between them.

Billionaire jackaroo, Sam Preston tempts fate as an adrenaline junkie, living each day as if it were his last. Angry and wounded, he’s in town to sell his cattle ranch to the local mining company and be done with his past—until he meets hapless city-chick Affrica, who has no clue about surviving in the desert. Sam doesn’t know how to stop being a daredevil even though Affrica reminds him of the happiness he once had.

Can Sam let go of the past before he loses the one person who's finally breathed new life into him, or is it not possible to truly tame a jackaroo?

How did someone get abs that hard? a man out of a girl’s cowboy dreams. At your service, miss. What was it about her that had him captivated? God, did she realise what she did to him? HOLY JUMPING JACKAROO! What an AUSSIETACULAR story! There are three reasons why I am flummoxed about my reactions & feelings towards this book - 1 - this is a contemporary book (I am a paranormal junkie through & through) 2 - this is the debut release for Sidney Valentine 3 - while there is heat between the characters, it's not an erotica book… But yet... I love, Love, LOVED IT TO BITS!!! Practically from the moment I started reading I was hooked! I absolutely love, Love, LOVE this line and while I can’t take credit for it, I think it is a pretty accurate reflection of my feelings & reaction to this story overall - An emotional waterfall—powerful, instantaneous, and overwhelming. Affrica is this amazing character who has this unique blend of innocence and boldness, while Sam is sexy, he is definitely not your “typical” hero and they kept me entertained & fully engaged throughout the whole book! In fact I couldn’t put it down and just to be sure it wasn’t a fluke, I read it twice –back to back – and loved it just as much the second time as I did the first! Maybe even a little bit more! I have never been to Australia, but it has always been a dream of mine, so when I started reading this book and I realized just how Aussie & Aussie-authentic it is, I squealed!! For the time it took to read the book, I could enjoy my very own Australia holiday like no other, complete with a sexy jackaroo!Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn his sexiness. 5 TAMED HEARTS 11 June 2017

I have never been to Australia, but it has always been a dream of mine, so when I started reading this book and I realized just how Aussie & Aussie-authentic it is, I squealed!! For the time it took to read the book, I could enjoy my very own Australia holiday like no other, complete with a sexy jackaroo! Sidney's exceptionally engaging & highly entertaining storytelling that's filled with humor, intrigue, secrets, heartbreak, hot thoughts, naughty moments, one feisty city girl & one sexy, moody jackaroo, I was tamed before I knew what hit me! What's that phrase... something about saving a horse and riding a jackaroo?? wink This story exploded to life, transporting me to Australia, then to the Australian Outback where I eagerly, happily and enviously (okay! I was even a wee bit jealous too!) became Affrica, living, feeling, caring, experiencing the full power of the story with, for and as her, but without having to deal with all of the bugs & that heat! Don't believe me? Want to know just how deeply ensconced I was in the story? Well the best compliment I can ever give about an author's ability to transport me into their story & characters is this - I actually had a few panic/claustrophobic attacks when Affrica was caving and checking out a mine!! (She was fine, but I couldn’t handle the feeling of being in a deep, dark cave!) Sidney has done more than "just" impressed me with her debut novel! With her attention to detail, the luscious descriptions, the captivating way the story is told, the multifaceted characters that I feel like I really know, and the way that everything combines perfectly & beautifully together, it brought this story to life and took me on an adventure like no other! The only thing missing was a Koala bear for me to hug! wink

4.0 out of 5 stars This book was fun, hot 10 June 2017
By Sassy Southern Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first book by Sidney Valentine I have had the pleasure of reading. This book was fun, hot, steamy and informative all in one. It broached a subject not everyone is comfortable talking about it and it did it in a graceful way.
When Affrica is offered a job of a lifetime she cannot resist. But when you think she is a bit over her head she powers through. Jack is the complete opposite of Affrica. All he wants is to be free of his past. He wants to leave and never look back. But when fate intervenes and drops Affrica in his lap. Can he do what he has set out to do from day one?
This book is guaranteed to give you some hot flashes of the good kind. The tension between Africa and Sam is almost too hot to bare. You can feel it whether they arguing with each other or fighting the attraction they obviously have.
Will they be able to realize what they’ve always wanted is right in front of them? They just have to be willing to give in a little.- By Vanessa
4.0 out of 5 stars The Outback at its best and worst. 19 June 2017
By cheri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Affricka needed the promotion. Not for her, well, maybe for her own self-esteem, but she had a more important reason. Besides she deserved it. She cared about the environment and making sure mining companies like the one in Boulia weren't abusing the land was important to her. This was her chance to do both. It seemed that everything was against her. Her equipment was delayed. The jerk of a landowner refused to let her take samples she needed to compare to the one who'd made the original complaint. Just to begin with.
Sam didn't want to revisit the memories of being home. No option if he was to sell the ranch his father left him. His brother didn't want it or Sam. They'd been a broken family since he'd left. Then this woman, this hot, not-dressed-for-the-outback piece wanted to mess up his sale.
When he realized he'd been a jerk he tried to make up for it with the lady who just deserved better.
While both decided getting involved wasn't in their best interest, fate and nature seemed to disagree.
This is a good romance with characters with secrets you'll want to know, family mending you'll want to see, and danger you'll want them to escape. Not to mention the romance you'll be rooting for. Don't miss this one. The Outback at its best and worst.

4.0 out of 5 stars Taming a Jackaroo 10 June 2017
By Epiphany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is my introduction to Sidney Valentine and her writing style. So I had no idea what I was in for. I found this book to be well written and developed. The story idea of environmental issues is a new one for me, but very important to me personally. I did struggle reading this book and I am not really sure why. I did try rereading some just incase I had missed the grab me moment, but just could not get totally into this book, I really wish I could have. I look forward to reading more from this author.
4.0 out of 5 stars Romance down under 18 June 2017
By Robert DeFrank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A new and interesting setting for a romance, one that I hadn't seen much of before. The author is a resident of Australia and the scenery comes to life. The journey of the two principle characters into the outback makes the book. Affrica, the female lead, is obviously out her element as an urbanite, and Sam has to come out of his depression almost by default to keep her from getting herself killed. The author has a way with characters who are simultaneously endearing and exasperating that draws the reader in. The quality and unique elements set this book about the rest.
