City girl in the bush. Man of the land Flatcher hardy welcomed a diversion like Ally Fraser during his tedious business trip in Melbourne. Until he found himself falling for her... As a boy he'd learned that city women were unsuited to Outback life when his mother fled their family cattle station. He'd vowed his bride had to be born and bred in the bush. So he returned to Wallaroo and tried to forget. He thought having his four-year-old godson to care for would help. Until Ally turned up as Connor's new nanny, with the intention of proving that she could survive the Outback and be the perfect wife and mother! - back cover (Sydney, 1999)
