The cover drew me, but the story enthralled me. Miss Fraser has written a compelling story, it rattles along at a great pace. I had to keep reading as each page brought something new to the characters. Georgina is a feisty heroine, intent on making something of herself in these changing times. Dane, the hero, has met his match and the sexual tension in the first half of the book is palpable. The story twists and turns, along with a brilliantly pictured River Murray. The first half of the book sets the scene very well for all of the happenings in Georgina and Dane's life that eventuates in the second half of the book. An authentic look at early life on the Murray with wonderfully memorable characters. And Dane does make the heart race!
