He wants to throw away his future. She'll do whatever it takes to save hers... Even tame a wild Aussie cowboy.

City girl and serial non-dater, Affrica Clarke travels to Boulia, Australia, to investigate the environmental impacts of the local mining company. Unless she proves herself and wins that promotion, she'll lose so much more than a pay rise. Yet everything goes wrong the moment she lands in the outback. With no research equipment, only skimpy clothes packed by her best friend to help her score a date, and a tight deadline to submit her report, she's screwed. So when a sexy cowboy offers to play chauffeur, she's all over it. But she's there to shut down the mining activities, not fawn over the guy who's supporting them, no matter how sizzling the attraction between them.

Billionaire jackaroo, Sam Preston tempts fate as an adrenaline junkie, living each day as if it were his last. Angry and wounded, he's in town to sell his cattle ranch to the local mining company and be done with his past--until he meets hapless city-chick Affrica, who has no clue about surviving in the desert. Sam doesn't know how to stop being a daredevil even though Affrica reminds him of the happiness he once had.

Can Sam let go of the past before he loses the one person who's finally breathed new life into him, or is it not possible to truly tame a jackaroo?
  

 
 Taming a Jackaroo by Sidney Valentine

Taming a JackarooThe environment, one of what should be the world’s biggest concerns, right? Affrica Clarke takes it all seriously, especially when she needs to prove herself on the job, so when she heads to Boulia, Australia to investigate the impact a local mining company has on the environment, she never expected to fall for or want to sleep with the enemy.

Sam is an adrenaline junkie, filthy rich and ready to cut ties with his past. The family cattle ranch is all that ties him to Boulia and the local mining company has offered to take it off his hands. Little did he know that the city dwelling Affrica would show up, clueless about the outback, yet passionate about uncovering crimes against Mother Nature. How could he not be attracted to this beauty who is so out of her element, but who sees the world that holds only bad memories for him as a place of beauty that needs protecting from the very people he is in negotiations with? Does make him the bad guy or does it make him a man blinded by what is right in front of him until one feisty woman makes his heart come to life?

Sidney Valentine’s TAMING A JACKAROO is a tale about finding love in the most unexpected places when it was the last thing one was even considering. Affrica is so out of her element, and a bit flighty when it comes to being prepared, but her passion for what she wants to prove is clear. Sam, well, can you say a chip on his shoulder as big as the outback and tunnel vision that only sees what was behind him? As flaming hot as the outback can be, the tension between these two nearly reaches a boiling point, whether it is when they are fighting their attraction, giving in, arguing their side of the story or doing mental fisticuffs with themselves! Affrica must decide if her job and that big promotion are worth more than finding what her heart desires while Sam needs to look out the other end of that tunnel to his future.

A fun read that makes protecting the environment even sexier than what it is! Want some push – me – pull- me romance? Love the battle of the sexes, knowing it could end in a tie? Pack some rugged clothes, leave the LBD behind and discover love, the Sidney Valentine way!

I received an ARC edition from Sidney Valentine in exchange for my honest review.
