A bushranger's secret, a father's hope, a daughter's dream - three lives collide in Driftwood. When the bushranger heritage of a family explodes into modern day, buried secrets are unearthed...with lasting consequences. To Taylor Whitworth, knowing that she'll never meet her biological father is devastating. All she knows is that before he died, he was a stockman. Taylor yearns to be like her father - and to become a jillaroo. So she packs her bags and hits the road, destination unknown, until she happens upon the country township of Driftwood. Life-burdened Jay Donnellson is a cowboy through and through. Both his passion for the outback and bad boy image have been inherited from his forefathers. The whole town whispers about him but Jay doesn't care...until his rough and tumble lifestyle is stopped dead in its tracks when he happens across Taylor on a deserted country road. When Jay offers Taylor a job as a jillaroo on his cattle station, their mutual love of horses helps to form a bond between them. It's not long before they find their wonderful friendship developing into something more. 'Mandy writes great stories...sexy and uniquely Australian! What more do you need?'
