When the very sensible Charity meets the 'sworn-off-women-forever' Lachlan on a wild weekend at a bachelor and spinsters' ball, what could possibly go wrong....or is there a chance it could all go impossibly, incredibly right?
Charity Farrugia is too sensible to believe she'll find love in a paddock.
After all, at thirty-four, she's the one with the secure career and the mortgage. The one who took on the job of raising her two sisters when Mum got sick. Everyone knows she's the practical one. The responsible one. Yeah, the boring one. But it would be neither safe nor prudent to let Faith and Hope spend a weekend in the country without her, would it?
Lachlan MacKenzie doesn't believe in all that once-burned stuff. He might be divorced, but his cheating ex is no grounds for him to swear off women. No, he has a far better motive. A secret that his brother, Hamish, and their increasingly distant father share. A reason that could cost him his livelihood. But Mum would have wanted him to keep an eye out for Hamish, so he reluctantly allows himself to be dragged to the local B&S.
Charity has no intention of allowing her chaperone duties to be side-tracked by any local yokel. But meeting the intriguing farmer - who seems as reluctant as her to be at the B&S - might be an opportunity to prove to her sisters that she does have a wild side after all.
But will she discover that what happens in the country sometimes refuses to stay in the country?
