                      Synopsis

                      South Australia, 1919. Ross Grant has always felt like the black sheep of his wealthy Scottish family. An explorer at heart, he dreams of life on Waybell, their remote cattle station in Australia’s last remaining wilderness, the Northern Territory.Then his brother Alastair is branded a deserter after going missing during the Great War. To help restore the Grants’ damaged reputation, Ross is coerced into marrying Darcey Thomas, a woman he has never met.Disgusted by his manipulative family, he turns his back on his unwanted wife just hours after the ceremony, and heads to Waybell with no plans to return. He carries with him the hope of carving his own empire in the far north.But Ross has not counted on Darcey’s determination to be his wife in more than just name. Nor did he anticipate meeting Maria, a young, part-Chinese woman who will capture his heart. And he certainly wasn’t prepared for how this beautiful yet savage land will both captivate and destroy his soul . . .From nineteenth-century Adelaide and the red dirt of mid-north South Australia, to the cattle stations and buffalo plains of the far north Ross’s journey is one of anger and desire, adventure and determination, to the heart of stone country and beyond.

                        Hi there
                        I have read six out of Nicole’s nine books, the first being Stone Country. I absolutely love her books; I love books on the outback. They are a lifestyle that I find interesting, fascinating, intriguing and I adore horses. I enjoy well-written books with clear vivid scene descriptions, as in Nicole’s case, a definite page-turner. Another author I love is Kerry McGinnis who has written about the outback, two of her books were nonfiction.
                        I hope that Nicole will continue writing her stories as I just can’t get enough. I have three left to read.
                        She’s fabulous, one of the best authors ever. She totally quenches my reading thirst.
