Laura Mallory hurt and confused by her much loved father David died and left her out of his will, she is resigned to except only her step-mother Paula and her 1/2 brother Jamie being named in the will, Laura finds that she is also being thrown out of the house she has always lived in, and Paula is not going to allow her to see Jamie. All through the book Laura calls Jamie her stepbrother, even though they have the same father, which makes Laura and Jamie half siblings, not step.
The family lawyer Howard Mitchell is just as bewildered, because his client and old friend chose another law-firm to make out his last-will-and testament.
Howard gets her a job with Blaise Hunter, although Blaise hates the idea of beautiful Laura working for him, because he dead wife Virgina, although just as beautiful was amoral, had an affair and left Blaise a daughter Lisa(Betsy)she had by another man.
Blaise's brother Steven and his sister-in-law Judith are living at Hunter's Moon along with Mrs Hunter their mother.
Claudia Judith's sister wants to marry Blaise and nothing anyone says to her will make her see Blaise doesn't want her.
Blaise looks into the will Paula has and finds it is a fake, but all through the book he treats Laura like she is his late wife.
on pg 89 he even pulls her hair first with a slight tug then very hard. Laura says "You're hurting me!' Blaise replies, "so you noticed." Yet you know he is truly in love with Laura, but he has been hurt so much by Virgina's betrayal he takes it out on Laura.
I of course threw the book across the room.
A week later I finished reading it, I didn't hate it, and I understand Blaise's anger, but he knew early on, from Lisa, Howard, his mom, his sister-in-law and mom that Laura was just what she seemed.
From the back of the book: 'The pain went straight to her heart. Excluded from her father's will, Laura was banished from her home by her cold unfeeling stepmother.
Fate offered a solution in the form of Blaise Hunter, but he accepted her as his young daughter's governess. The dynamic boss of the cattle station doubted Laura, a fragile beauty, could cope with the harsh outback.
Laura, too, had her doubts. Not of the land but of the man, who, instinct warned her, could cause her far greater suffering.

From the back cover:

I liked the dialogue and chemistry between the two main characters. I liked it and definitely recommend it.
