Lily’s Leap is a sweet historical novella set in colonial Australia. The story opens with an ambush to steal horses which quickly turned into a kidnapping for ransom. It was attraction formed at first sight (you really can’t mess about when it’s only a novella!) – the heat quickly ratcheted and was undeniable on either sides. Neither party knew each other at all though so it was a battle of mysterious past.
It was a beautiful easy read with a daring heroine. The romance was sweet though fraught with uncertainties right to the end. Being a novella, however, there were some things which I thought could be develop however in saying that, Lily’s Leap holds a promise of being a full blown novel of sweeping Aussie romance saga. I wish there was more…
