Have you discovered Loretta Hill yet? If not, you're in for a treat with this free book featuring extracts from her two deliciously romantic novels set in the Pilbara.
The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots was a critically acclaimed bestseller and launched Loretta Hill as a fresh, funny and vibrant new voice in Australian women's fiction. Now in one volume, enjoy an extract from this novel, and its brilliant new sequel, The Girl in the Hard Hat.
The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots: Lena Todd is a city girl who thrives on cocktails and cappuccinos. So when her boss announces he's sending her to the outback to join a construction team, her world is turned upside down. Lena's new accommodation will be an aluminium box called a dongar. Her new social network: 350 men. Her daily foot attire: steel-capped boots.
Unfortunately, Lena can't refuse. Mistakes of the past are choking her confidence. She needs to do something to right those wrongs and prove herself. Going into a remote community might just be the place to do that, if only tall, dark and obnoxious Dan didn't seem so determined to stand in her way ...
The Girl in the Hard Hat: 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. Giving up is not an option, though. For, as it turns out, only Wendy can save these workers from a coming storm, find a man who wants to stay buried and ... put a bad boy firmly in his place.
