From the author of The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots comes another funny and deliciously romantic tale of a woman in a man's world.

Wendy Hopkins arrives in the Pilbara to search for the father who abandoned her at birth.

Getting mixed up in construction site politics at the Iron Ore wharf just out of town was not high on her ‘to do' list.

But when she takes a job as their new Safety Manager she becomes the most hated person in the area. Nicknamed ‘The Sergeant', she is the butt of every joke and the prime target of notorious womanizer, Gavin Jones.

Giving up is not an option, though.

For, as it turns out, only Wendy can save these workers from the coming storm, find a man who wants to stay buried and ... put a bad boy firmly in his place.

About the Author

The bestselling The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots was Loretta Hill's commercial women's fiction debut. Loretta drew upon her own outback engineering experiences to write Lena Todd's journey of self-discovery into a world full of larrikins, red dust and steel-capped boots. Its sequel, The Girl in the Hard Hat, will publish in January 2013. Loretta always wanted to be a writer. As a kid she filled pages of exercise books with stories to amuse her friends. Her father, who never wasted his time on fiction, didn't see much worth in this pass time and pushed her to pursue a 'sensible' career. Fortunately, she had inherited some of his talent for numbers and decided to give it a go. She graduated from the University of Western Australia as structural engineer and took her first job with a major West Australian engineering company. A few years later she met a lawyer at a Black Friday party hosted by a friend. She was dressed as the devil and he just came as himself. They are now happily married and living in Perth with their two young sons and infant daughter. Despite her career in engineering, her interest in law and her journey into motherhood, Loretta continued to write. Not because she had a lot of time but because it was and always had been an addiction she couldn't ignore.

          Comments about The Girl in the Hard Hat:

          If you loved The Girl in the Steel Capped Boots you will love the sequal The Girl in the Hard Hat (if you haven't read it what are you waiting for!)

          The story follows Wendy as she takes on a job as a safety Manager on the male dominated Iron Ore Wharf in the Pilbara as she tackles safety issues both on and off the job. Was great to catch up with Lena and co from the first book (although it could easily be read as a stand alone book - but who would want to) and what a great ending.

          I'm looking forward to Loretta's next book!
