The last thing advertising art director Lucy Bellamy wants is to go home to the Outback, but duty to family calls. At least there’s one bonus—her first love, sexy cowboy neighbour Garth Mackenzie, is there, and the attraction between them is still explosive. But Lucy has no intention of getting stuck in this two-bit town, and she counts down the days until she can go back to her real life.
After an engineering degree and working in the mines of Western Australia, Garth has returned to the Outback and is home to stay. His goal is to settle down, start a family, and work his beloved land with the girl he’s always loved. But if it comes to Lucy choosing between the glamour of the city or making a home with him in the Outback—he’d lose, hands down.

The last place Lucy Bellamy wants to be is the family spread in the Australian Outback. She's made a very nice life for herself in the city and that's where she wants to stay. Family calls though so off she goes along with her 3 cousins. When faced with the fact that they will need to take over the family ranch or it will be sold since the grandparents are getting older, the four decide to each put in their time to keep that from happening. Seeing her ex Garth Mackenzie is a nice perk of being back but not even Garth can get her stay. Can he?
A fabulous fun story with great secondary characters that should gives us more great stories in the future. This is a light easy read with little angst and a lot of fun. Definitely one I recommend.
Beautiful and Emotional!!!
This is book one in the Prickle Creek series and it features Lucy Bellamy and Garth MacKenzie. Although there are other things happening in this story and with other characters, Lucy's decision on where to live her life and what to do with it is the main thread.
Annie Seaton writes in a way that takes me to Australia, though I've never been, and I can almost feel the weather, the red dusty roads, the roos and the dogs. I also feel a tremendous sense of family in her stories. There were a couple of moments that brought tears to my eyes but the one that got me the hardest was when Lucy says:
"Listen Gran. Close your eyes and listen. Can
you hear it?"
"I can hear Mum, Aunty Jean and Aunty Carol
laughing. They're here with us in spirit."
...and the tears started flowing.
BRAVO Annie Seaton! Beautiful and emotional! Excellent writing with fabulous characters. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
one of those feel good reads
The first words that come to mind to describe this book is sweet, wholesome, first love and family and that about sums up HER OUTBACK COWBOY. It is one of those feel good reads that isn't bogged down with deep emotion baggage; it truly is a story about reuniting first love and coming home.
Seaton leads the way for further Outback adventures with not only Lucy's cousin clan but maybe even the vet. I'm looking forward to it!
I received this ARC copy of Her Outback Cowboy from Entangled Publishing, LLC - Bliss.
