'"Let me burst your city bubble for you. This is the Pilbara. And it's the Pilbara that makes the rules . . ."

'Lena Todd is a city girl who thrives on cocktails and cappuccinos. So when her boss announces he's sending her to the outback to join a construction team, her world is turned upside down.

'Lena's new accommodation will be an aluminium box called a dongar.

'Her new social network: 350 men.

'Her daily foot attire: steel-capped boots.

'Unfortunately, Lena can't refuse. Mistakes of the past are choking her confidence. She needs to do something to right those wrongs and prove herself. Going into a remote community might just be the place to do that, if only tall, dark and obnoxious Dan didn't seem so determined to stand in her way ...' (From the publisher's website.)
