Her will to keep her heart safe, against the odds.
His will to win her heart, despite the odds.
A surprise codicil of her late father's will leaves Toni MacDonnell bewildered and angry. The possibility of losing everything she loves, her cattle station home in the red desert of central Australia, to some rich man's company, is real, and frightening.
Then she and her brothers, Paul and Evan discover that fraud and embezzlement have had something to do with her predicament. Now it's a race to find the truth, and someone to trust. Toni doesn't have a lot of trust to give—not when she learns that her manipulative ex has left her another financial mess.
Newcomer Callum Parker has hit town, intent on delivering his family company's newest acquisition, a little jewel in central Australia, MacDonnell's Run. But he's up against a stubborn and worried Toni fighting for her home and her life—he tries whatever it takes to get what he wants.
Does Toni fight her father's dying wishes, holding her brothers to ransom over it? When Callum plays his final hand, does she follow her heart—and not her head—to find the right way home?
