Swapping places with her Australian friend for two weeks at a cattle station in Australia sounded perfect for sheltered teacher Harper Shaw. Going Down Under was a chance of a lifetime for Harper to spread her wings, experience adventure and live life to the fullest for the next two weeks. In the name of adventur,e she is more than willing to act on the instant attraction to two very sexy Aussie cowboys, Keith and Marc. But what starts out as a little bit of fun and games turns into something more for Harper and her men with some surprising revelations.

What will happen when it's time for Harper to go back home to Chicago? Is the bond between Harper, Keith and Marc strong enough to last a lifetime?

Writing alone, authors Lexxie Couper and Mari Carr create magic story after story. But when you combine their talents, the result is exciting and highly romantic and shouldn't be missed! These two authors pull out all the stops, striking a good balance between romance and adventure that will leave the reader highly pleased and breathless with wonder. The delightfully delicious and decadent relationship between Harper and her men is playful, smoking hot but there is a feeling of love in their connection that started out as an intense attraction and a little fun and games that quickly turns into something more which is portrayed realistically enough that the reader can almost feel the bond page after page.

Harper is ready to break out of her shell, be impulsive, and feels a little independent and by going to Australia she is ready to jump out on a limb, to become a stronger, carefree and loveable woman that isn't afraid of what life has to offer. It's very easy for the reader to relate to Harper's character, embrace her choices, and share in her pleasures as well as her heartache. Stockmen Keith and Marc seem like good time cowboys but there is more to them than meets the eye once they set their sights on Harper and their romantic and rollicking play heats the pages up. The read will enjoy how these two cowboys get their little lady with an ending that doesn't disappoint.

The reader should note there is a brief remembrance of child abuse that Harper has over an event that happens while she is in Australia but it is Keith and Marc who help her chase away the bad memories. This scene does give the reader a better understanding of Harper's character.
