Sent to Australia on assignment after a disastrous affair with his editor, English aristocrat playboy Jonathan Hartley-Huntley is desperate to write his story and get back to London as soon as possible. That is, until he meets irresistible pub owner Charlie Hughes.
Charlie has never wanted to leave her remote outback pub but when Jon discovers an old mural by her artist father that reminds him of his childhood, it raises questions about both their lives.

Torn between his duty to his family and the love he feels for Charlie, Jon feels trapped. Only by helping Charlie uncover her own mysterious past can the two lovers find a way to forge a future together.
