In this, her third novel, the multitalented author of Night in Eden returns to the glorious setting of nineteenth-century Australia,  to the ancient, primal vistas of the outback, to a land as untamed as a man's soul. . . . Patrick O'Reilly loves life in the wilderness. All he needs is his land, his work, and the company of the children he adores. The last thing he wants is the prim and proper Englishwoman who arrives to care for his unruly children. Amanda Davenport seems unprepared for the harshness of the place O'Reilly calls home, and yet he finds himself inexplicably drawn to this proud woman and the fire he knows exists beneath her refined exterior. Accepting a job as governess is the only way Amanda can earn passage back to her beloved England and away from this land that she hates--rugged, uncivilized, intoxicating, like Patrick O'Reilly himself. Despite her fears, Amanda gradually awakens to the shimmering heat of this wild primitive land, to the children she can't help but love, and to this magnificent man whose raw sensuality dares to expose her own undeniable passion. . . .… (mere)

Ms. Proctor also writes the Sebastian St. Cyr historical mysteries under the name C.S. Harris which is an automatic preorder for me each year, but I enjoy her historical romances also. September Moon is another set in Australia in the 1800s. Amanda Davenport takes a position as a governess in the Outback to three children. Their father, Patrick O'Reilly, is not predisposed to like English gentlewomen as his wife and mother both deserted their families to return home. Amanda is appalled at the free-wheeling attitudes of the people of this wild land while Patrick tries hard to get her to loosen up, convinced she's not as stuffy as she appears.
This is a slow-burn romance with an enemies-to-lovers trope that also details what living on an Australian sheep station entails. There are lovely descriptions of this desolate land, both flora and fauna, and the impact of drought.
Patrick is pretty much the man he appears to be, but Amanda can sometimes be annoying as she vacillates between letting go and maintaining her English manners. It's another good read from an excellent author. ( )

It's too bad this was such a dud of a book because Candice Proctor writes so well, particularly when it comes to depicting the setting of the Australian outback. There's not much to say about the story - it's a run of the mill governess charms unruly children and bags rancher husband type. Think Sound of Music but, if you liked Sound of Music, really bad. There just wasn't anything behind the characters, no depth, no personality, nothing to get me interested. They all seemed like they were just going through the motions. Added to which, the children were really annoying, and the romance wasn't remotely believable. Amanda Davenport starts out hating Australia and wanting so desperately to go home to England. She is also really repressed and ashamed of her sexuality - the British stereotype. But then, after hearing Patrick O'Reilly's sob story of how his mother and then his wife abandoned him, she does an about face turn around, has her epiphany, and realizes she loves him, his brood of monsters, and Australia. Color me unconvinced. The descriptions of landscape and atmosphere were the only things that had something resembling life in them. Besides that, September Moon was a disappointment, considering how much I've loved Proctor's other books ( )
