For many, traversing the Australian continent on a long-distance train would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. But for Morgan Silverstone, who travels the globe as anchor presenter for a prime-time Australian travel show, it's just another few days at the office. Or at least that's how it seems until she meets Marie, a French backpacker bound for the outback.
Closeted for the sake of her job, Morgan usually restricts her amorous activities for outside Australia. Marie, however, proves hard to resist, especially in the confined space of Morgan's sleeper compartment.
Will a few hours of unbridled passion be Morgan's professional undoing? Kitty, Morgan's long-suffering producer, certainly thinks so, especially since the encounter was overheard by a fellow passenger, found standing outside Morgan's door—
After Kitty's quickly arranged 'damage control' dinner, the passenger—Ally—no longer appears to be a threat. Not professionally. But could the very appealing architect end up undoing Morgan emotionally? After all, she does have two very unfortunate qualities—one, she's Australian, and two...she prefers men.
