I really loved this book (previously published as Blue Haze but re-published as Mystic Mountains). It was like Pride and Prejudice...ooops, I mean Arrogance and Obstinacy, meets the Thorn Birds in 1818 Australia. I love realistically flawed characters--perfect romance H/h's are such bores--and both of these were so realistically flawed, the way their life experiences from their past hard-scrabble youth carried over to lead to inappropriate and sometimes foolish judgments in their present was so well developed into the plot of this book. Now I shouldn't love it as much as I did. There were a few things in this book that I really hated, but I can't say without spoilers, that should have made me downgrade my rating--however, any book that keeps me up to 3:30 AM to finish, because I just can't put it down, definitely rates five-stars. This is also the kind of book that will make the next few books I read seem like they don't measure up.

I really enjoyed this book. The writing flows, and the story is compelling. The protagonists in the story are, for the most part, newly-arrived convicts transported from England to New South Wales, Australia, in the early 1800s.

The author explains a great deal about the early history of Australia without being pedantic. The historical details are very nicely integrated into the story, and are never are intrusive. The author clearly did a lot of research, and the historical accuracy adds to the richness of the tale.

The author also points out how crucial New South Wales Governor Lachlan Macquarie was to the development of the democratic Australia that we know today. He insisted on fully integrating convicts into society after their sentences had been fulfilled, thus preventing the creation of a stratified settler society. His policies are crucial to this story, for it allowed former convicts to have dreams of someday owning their own land and having their own businesses.

The hero of the story is Tiger Carstairs. Tiger has a prosperous farm, and dreams of land over the rugged Blue Mountains (the "mystic mountains" of the title), land that will be opened to settlement in the near future.

The heroine is Isabella O'Shea, transported for knifing a member of the nobility in England who attempted to rape her. She arrives in New South Wales scared to death that she will be assigned to serve her sentence in less than desirable circumstances. Nevertheless, in Australia she will have more hope for a decent life in the future than she would ever have had in the slums of London. Isabella is assigned to work for Tiger Carstairs, a man whom she resents because he seems to embody everything that she hates about the English aristocracy.

I enjoyed this story somewhat. Really took the reader through stages of Hero and Heroine's life/relationships in a time when social class, poverty and struggles, especially for women were palpable.
I must say that both Hero and Heroine were the most stubborn characters I have read to date, more so the Heroine than the Hero. But as every true romance story has it's HEA they eventually found their way back to each other, albeit at a cost.

This book was a wonderful surprise to find. Full of adventure on how convicts from England sent to Australia helped to tame the wilderness. The writing was superb and the author didn't bore the reader with unnecessary passages. I ordered the second book before I finished Book I. I loved the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book not like all the other soppy love books out there Mystic Mountain held pain, love, and a touch of comedy. I couldnt put the book down cause i wanted to know what the fiery Bella and the beastly Tiger would be up to next. I cant wait to start reading more of Tricia McGill books.

I loved the details about Australia and about the hardships of being early settlers. I also enjoyed the characters very much until it came to this: the Romantic dialogue of the man. I kept thinking, "No man would say that!"
