wonderful, slightly angsty adventure, revolving around australian diamond mine, its beautiful heiress and a geologist that helps her out. another book that I'm onlyletting go becasue of the duplicate copy on my shelf
This was my first Lowell book, and she quickly became my favorite romance author. I think she does a pretty good job of avoiding the usual romance novel pitfalls, i.e. "strong, dominant man" with "weak, needing protection and saving woman." I definitely appreciated that Lowell managed to provide and engaging plot without resorting to stereotypes. I also love Lowell's writing style. I find that her older novels (like this one) are much better in terms of prose than the new ones. I definitely recommend this book.
