Royston Stirling has all the strength, money, and power that his infamous father wielded over the family cattle station deep in the dusty bush of Australia’s Channel Country. But from the moment she sees him, Amelia Boyd knows Royce struggles to be a better man. His tense energy attracts her, fueling the spell of remote, manor-like Kooralya and its lush gardens of gardenia and roses—even as she recognizes that the wedding bringing their families together is a terrible mistake. Amelia knows her sister has snared Royce’s brother more out of greed than passion. But she can’t abandon her, no matter how conniving she seems. And with the groom besotted with Amelia even as he prepares to walk down the aisle, the ill-fated match stirs up nightmares of the past. Amelia might almost forgive Royce’s suspicions. But the arrogance of a wounded man is a powerful force, one Amelia knows too well. And as the desire brewing between Royce and Amelia grows irresistible, the distrust, heartache, and family secrets seething beneath the surface are bound to burst forth . . . “If you’ve never read Margaret Way before, you’re in for a treat!” —New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer...

her australian cattle baron the australians book 3 Reviews
Having never been to Australia I could appreciate the very detailed descriptions of landscape and history, although it seemed to take away from the story a bit. I found myself skimming pages for the lessons to move on to the storyline. Two strong and intelligent people find themselves having to deal with the aftermath of the wedding of their siblings. Marigold is a troubled young lady, having been adopted by Amelia's family as a child they made her family. Her husband, Jimmy, is in love with her sister who is in love with Royce, Jimmy's brother. The story is very much a soap opera type with the triangle, psychopath and insanely rich family. However I never really understand the attraction between Royce and Amelia. The conversations were dry, cruel and without feeling yet she's in love with him and him with her. I'm not sure if it was meant to be sarcastic at times or just his alpha personality but Royce did not seem friendly. I received an ARC from Netgalley and my review was written voluntarily.
Family Ties and Loyalties It is some years since I last read a book by this author but I did remember that her descriptions of the Outback (and particularly the wild flowers after rain) were sublime and I was not disappointed. Amelia meets Royce when she travels to his cattle station for the wedding of her younger (adopted) sister, Marigold to Jimmy (Royce's half brother). We are never told Jimmy's age but from various timelines, he can be no older than 19 and whilst I can understand how he got trapped by Marigold (who is around 23) I am surprised that Royce didn't do more to talk him out of the marriage or, at the very least to insist on a prenup. The relationship between Amelia and Royce is very similar to other novels by this author and therefore rather predictable but if you have never read any of her other books you will enjoy it.I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
Her Australian Cattle Baron by Margaret WayThe Australians #2Romance set in Australia starring two sets of siblings – Royce and his half-brother Jimmy AND Amelia and her adopted sister Marigold. The plot was predictable, the depictions of scenery gorgeous, the characters like many I have seen before and for the most part I felt I was reading a book written decades ago – perhaps formulaic is the term I should use to describe this romance. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books – Lyrical Shine for the ARC. This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars
