Opal Ridge (Book One)

Amidst the harsh landscape and beauty of the Australian outback, two people are unsure that they're ready to commit to love.

Jenna Mackenzie is ready for a change in her life. So, when her brother is injured just before he takes a job in the outback, she leaps at the chance to take his place. If only her new boss was so thrilled ...
With a history of hurt and betrayal by women in his life, Charles Carmody is certainly not happy when a young upstart from the city comes to play jillaroo on his sheep property. Only coaxing from his father persuades him to let her stay.

What happens when Jenna's fresh innocence meets Charles icy heart? Will she be able to melt his heart?


Opal Ridge is the first novel in Victoria Capper's trilogy of outback romances. It covers the joys and trials of living in the Australian outback as well as the inevitable relationships that develop. In its way, Opal Ridge is both a romp through the vernacular of life in the bush and a story of great depth.

Attraction is immediate, but can it survive this harsh environment? Will they find a magical outcome to their problems together?
