Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway ’round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online—only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he’s on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter’s as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to. Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.
Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger—until he met Annie. Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo…and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter’s not normally one to poach his brother’s women, but he can’t keep his hands, lips, tongue and other body parts off this sexy city girl.
When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end—or when Dylan finds out?
Where does a famous rich girl go when she is tired of the paparazzi, the crowded big city, and the country where she cannot get any privacy? She tries out the land of Oz, aka Australia, where she falls for a handsome, sexy cowboy/stockman. Unfortunately, he’s the brother of the guy she met online.
Annie Prince is twenty-eight years old and still trying to prove herself in the world. She works hard at a job that she landed through her own efforts and not by riding her famous father’s reputation. She thinks she let her father down when she refused to accept a company that he wanted to hand over to her as a graduation gift. In the relationship department, Annie has not yet found anyone who wants her for herself and not for her family’s fame and/or fortune.
Hunter Sullivan was minding his own business and being a good brother when he winds up having to pick up his brother’s new friend, Annie, from the airport. Hunter hasn’t been looking for a steady relationship, instead he has been satisfying himself with casual hookups. His mother even resorted to flying in girls who were related to her friends and acquaintances under the guise of hiring a cook for their ranch/station, but still Hunter resisted getting serious.
Throwing these two together caused some major sparks since they were falling for each other, but had to keep resisting in order to keep from hurting Hunter’s brother, Dylan, who thought that Annie might be the one for him. The tug of war with emotions and sexual tension was a delicious part of this story.
Ms. Carr and Ms. Couper’s collaboration resulted in a very steamy and satisfying romp through an Australian cattle station. Their skill with storytelling made for an awesome vicarious thrill of experiencing life as a rich girl who takes a break from her life and finds out that she is just beginning to live in the real world. I enjoyed Annie’s story and hope for more collaborative efforts from these two authors. Since this is book one of a series, I am going to be watching for the rest of them. I will also be looking for stories that they write individually. I highly recommend Misplaced Princess for a quick and sizzling read.
