Worth a King’s Ransom

From Christina: Today, Tea shares the story of Lily’s Leap. Enjoy!


 

An Australian historical romance about a privileged member of Australian’s squattocracy, a bushranger, and a very special horse.

 

LilyLeapBorn into the rough, but privileged society of the Australian colonial landowners, Lilibeth Dungarven finds herself married, widowed, and, much to her distress, back under her father’s thumb, all before her twenty-first birthday. Determined not to forgo her dream of breeding the perfect racehorse, Lilibeth ignores propriety and sets out to restore the family’s flagging fortunes.

When Captain Tom and his mismatched band of bushrangers stumble across a mob of the best horses they’ve ever seen, and the daughter of the famed Dungarven horse stud, they know their fortunes have changed. Their catch is worth a king’s ransom. All they have to do is hold her for seven days. How hard can it be to control the pampered daughter of a colonial upstart?

 



Check out Tea’s  feature post tomorrow about how she blends fact and fiction together in her writing.

Now, for another little snippet!
