Once Alexandra's mother and gran are both gone, she finds herself alone in small town Australia, yearning to learn who she really is. Her gran's stories of her life in England captivated – and oppressed – her throughout her whole life: stories of great love lost to war; grand manors where lords and ladies sipped tea from delicate china cups; forbidden love that reached beyond class barriers; and great fortunes lost, lying in wait for their rightful heir. These were the stories of her life. Alexandra sets out on a quest to learn the truth, to know once and for all if she really is an "Aussie Heiress". But being from such a small town, and never having experienced life in the big smoke, she is socially awkward, which more often than not looks like something else: a bad attitude and downright naughtiness. Colin is visiting Australia in the hopes of putting a bad marriage behind him. He, too, is on a quest, but at first doesn't realize that he is searching for something to fill the void left when his marriage collapsed. Colin has a keen interest in history, in fact he is a professor in the same part of England that may hold the answers Alexandra seeks. His social skills are nearly as lacking as his chance travel companion's are, and the sparks begin to fly straight away. His failed marriage taught him to be true to himself and deal with problems when they happen, even if the problem is an attractive woman who seems to delight in being difficult. And for someone who thinks the past is way better than the present, there’s only one way to deal with naughty young women. Will the Aussie Heiress find her true self by the end of her quest? Will Colin finally fill the void left by the collapse of his marriage? Will these two unlikely traveling companions fulfil life's ultimate quest for love? Publisher's Note: This is a newly edited version of a book previously published on Discipline and Desire.
