As an Australian I find it incredibly difficult to read the utterly ridiculous language and slang that is attributed to us by many American authors.
It seems as if most are doing their research based on Crocodile Dundee [Newsflash! That's not reality!] or a bizarre mish mash of Cockney rhyming slang from London's East End and bad British comedies from the fifties.
Perhaps updating their references may be in order.
Perhaps googling some news feeds or maybe even television that was produced post 1965!
And here's a really big tip!
It's not interchangeable!
I didn't hesitate to pre-order this book immediately when I saw the cover of a cowboy holding a little baby girl. I hadn't even read the book synopsis. My familiarity with the author as well as a love of stories about gay Dads / Uncles made the decision to purchase it a no brainer for me.
The story was even more compelling than I imagined. Reading it was a pleasure. I battle of two families for one little baby girl was riveting. The misconceptions each family had about each other, the reason a daughter / sister ran as far away from her family as possible, arguing about who was to blame for the death of Chloe's parents. The two Uncles were the middle men in Battle Royale between their clans of Ranch versus Rodeo people. Monied proper vs country bumpkins. Ranching elite versus country roving rodeo trash.
When was Lachlin bringing home (back to Australia or Oz) their granddaughter? His parents demanded. Just what was Holden going to do about getting rid of this interloper? The Sheffield kit and kin wanted to know.
You think you know what's going to happen, but the author surprises you at every turn. I've read many BA tortuga books and this one definitely had a different feel. Maybe it was the guidelines set out by the "new" publisher. You don't even know if either man is attracted to each other let alone if they are even gay.
There is anger, sadness, regret, fear, guilt, stubbornness, sibling rivalry, cowardice, betrayal, intrigue, loyalty, love, hopelessness, stupidity, and courage.
Do you do what your family wants or do what you believe is right? This is the central question that the author answers in this family drama. Doing what is right for the family because you have always been the responsibile one. But you don't have to be your family's puppet. You get to write your own story too.
While Harlequin Presents Romances were my bread and butter and something I like to fall back on for a quick easy read. . This one, Trial By Fire was typical of that format. Two successful ranchers from two different countries coming together due to family. Duty. Love of a little girl. The plot's been done before yet this one offers a nice touch.
Lachlan is the Australian visiting Texas in looking for his niece. Lach is an extremely rich man, sought after by the media and fortune hunters. Holden manages his father's empire and has his own slice of 800 acres. In addition to this he is responsible for little Chole, his niece. Both men have suffered a tragic loss and come together to heal, to fight for family, even if it's against popular opinion.
Some of the story development reminded me of the Red Dirt Series by N. R. Walker. I'd say that Walker's version is better done, especially from the Aussie viewpoint. I'll also agree with another reviewer -- The slang by Lachlan sounded more Texan than Australian. As I've spent more than half my life in Texas, I can back up my point. Lach hasn't been in the states or in Texas long enough to pick up the slang. If he was converting his speech patterns that fast, he'd also be off his tea . . . But that doesn't happen. He loves his tea over coffee and that's not changing!
A bit of drama, a nice coming together of two strong men, solutions to solve, little angst - This one comes together. The format is a guaranteed HEA and that's there, too. Again, similar to the Red Dirt Series. May I say that if anyone reads this book and enjoys the Texan / Australian pairing, then check out N. R. Walker's books. You'll be glad you did. 3.5 stars - Dan's Wife
