Anne Kingsley pursues a high-profile
advertising project that takes her to Australia, where she meets sheep
station owner Slade McGregor.
His distrust of this too-curious city woman rivals
hers of the country rogue, who dares mixing business with pleasure.
Although their backgrounds are worlds apart, Anne and Slade have both
suffered betrayals of the heart. Beneath the Southern Cross, they
face their inner fears and fall in love, to become perfect mates.
"While romance novels are not my usual genre of reading material, I found Next Year's Promise to bewell written andengaging in its plot. It was also well-researched by Hudgins, which lends to the book's credibility. I'm looking forward to reading another one of her books in the near-future."
Carol Boker, former magazine editor, Pennsylvania
4 1/2 STARS ~ Affaire
"Plots and subplots enhance this romance, while visual characters
deal with true problems. The beauty of the Aussie Outback draws a
pictorial of the dusty, hot summer. The symbolism of the dry, fiery
bush and the suductive dialect tempt the reader to travel deep into
this well-researched romance." --Nancy
