'To Taylor Whitworth, knowing that she’ll never meet her biological father is devastating. All she knows is he was a stockman and she yearns to be like him … to become a jillaroo. So she hits the road, destination unknown, until she happens upon the town of Driftwood.
Life-burdened Jay Cooper is a cowboy, his passion for the outback and his bad boy image inherited from his forefathers. The whole town whispers about him, but Jay doesn’t care – that is, until his rough and tumble lifestyle is stopped dead in its tracks when he happens across Taylor on a deserted country road.
'Soon their mutual love of horses begins a wonderful friendship that develops when Jay offers Taylor a job as a jillaroo on his cattle station.' (Publisher's blurb)
