Australia is not everybody’s idea of Christmas – sun’s out, guns out – the weather’s hot and so are the men. This story, Shear Passion, first appeared in Delilah’s Boys Behaving Badly anthology, Blue Collar, and like Delilah’s December giveaways, it hits its breathtaking peak just a few days before Christmas.
It’s an Aussie outback romance with a roughneck shearer and the fiery farmer’s daughter who would tame him. Here’s the cover blurb:
There’s nothing hotter than an outback shearing shed. Back-breaking work. Sweat pouring off the shearers’ bodies. It’s no place for a woman.
A shame nobody told Sam. Fresh out of agricultural college, she’ll do anything to convince Dad she’s ready for more responsibility, so when he asks if she can help shear the last mob of ewes, she doesn’t think twice. How hard could it be?
Things seemed to be going so well when Sam first met Pat, the lean and handsome Queenslander, on the morning before shearing. She’d thought maybe… after the work was done… But that was before he knew he’d be shearing with her. A shiela in the shed? It’s a man’s domain. Always has been, and Pat lets her know it.
So much for the fledgling romance. Sam is a woman to be reckoned with, though, and if Pat doesn’t shape up then he’s on a fast track to a tongue-lashing.
The temperature in the shed soars. Tempers flare. Sam fights her attraction toward the handsome shearer. She’d love to show him she’s a lot more than some helpless little girl playing farmer, but it’s been a long day—maybe he’s already noticed.
