A very good read. This book continues the Garrity Family story. Instead of the beautiful descriptions of life in the outback, alot of this book deals with the ships that hunt and kill whales. One of the main reasons I love Aaron Fletcher's books is the way the author makes you feel like you are on the ship or in the outback. The books really come alive with the characters and the era in which they live. I have read all of the Outback series, The Newzealanders and I give all of them a five star out of five stars. This author is one of my favorite.

The arrogant CEO had been driving feisty filly Kacy Judd crazy with his excessive demands, blatant disregard of procedures and toe curling kisses. Someone needed to bring the corporate executive down a peg and Kacy was just the gal for the job.
So when a minor accident landed Austin back at her ranch, with no memory of his former ill tempered inclinations, Kacy knew her chance for revenge had arrived. But the passion that had once flared between them was suddenly so much more dangerous. For Kacy had not counted on courting an Austin who was a cowboy and a gentleman.

From the back cover.
The Unwilling Bride: Raised to despise all men. Ashley had no choice but to marry, for a cruel twist of fate sent her to the planet that was mankind's last hope for survival. There, colonists had one duty: be fruitful and multiply. Forced to find a mate among the surly, woman hungry brutes. Ashley picked the one man she believed would willingly release her from her vows.

The Reluctant Groom: A born warrior, Garick was a man who'd conquered all he'd ever desired. But the rough and ready scout had neither the time nor the need for a wife, or did he? Before long, Ashley began to wonder if he'd ever set her free from his tender grasp.. or if she'd lose herself in the paradise of Garick's loving arms.

In the dark backstreets of Stepney, Ikey Soloman is the King rat. A notorious criminal, his only fear is that Hannah, his resentful and ambitious wife, will force him to reveal his half of the combination to the safe where their joint wealth is hidden. When Hannah and Mary, Ikey's intelligent and resourceful mistress, are deported to a penal colony to Van Dieman's land, Ikey's determination to get hold of the money leads him, under a false name, to the colony where money leads him, under a false name, to the colony where he too is imprisoned.
Driven by their mutual hatred, Ikey and Hannah survive as beset they can whilst Mary, who has become the owner of "The Potato Factory", makes and sells bootleg liquor. She too has half of the combination to the safe, and when she adopts twin babies, one black, one white, she determines to get the money for herself. But Hannah, and Ikey, have other plans.
