Now available! My Fair Aussie releases today!
So far it’s getting some rave reviews, but I’m just relieved it’s finally going out so I can breathe again.
There’s more to this Aussie cowboy than meets the eye.
Former grad student Eliza works as a nanny for a self-absorbed trophy wife looking to trade up for a new husband and ditch her child. Eliza will do anything to protect the little girl and open her boss’s eyes. Even if it requires an elaborate hoax.
Then fate hits Eliza with Henry, a bewildered, dirty guy at the bus station. He’s got amazing teeth, cowboy swagger, and an accent to swoon for. Everything is falling into place for a rags-to-riches-style bait and switch. But will it deliver a slice of humble pie to Eliza’s boss—or get Eliza fired?
Worse, refining him might mean losing her heart.
SNEAK PEEK/BACK STORY:
Books titles don’t always materialize in their final form. This book had two other titles before it ended with its reference to My Fair Lady. For a while it spent time as Talk Aussie to Me, which reminded me a little too much of an ’80s rock song that didn’t fit with my theme of clean romance.
However, in its very first incarnation, it was Talk Australian to Me. Here’s why–
A few years ago, one of my husband’s five sisters had a Hugh Jackman problem. “Talk Australian to me,” she’d say, with a little swoon after watching him in any of his movies.
Informal research reveals that she wasn’t the only American girl with a thing for that Aussie accent. (Evidence: The number of times I watched The Man from Snowy River, and Strictly Ballroom.)
It’s still titled its original title in my computer’s document and pictures folders, and the other day I called it the wrong thing at my critique group. Old habits die hard.
One of these days I’ll share with you where I found the cover model for the book. He’s cute, right?
