Synopsis for Love Imperfection:
Beth Poole’s got the wrong ticket to the right life…
English dog trainer Beth Poole is having trouble getting her life back together after beating a life-threatening illness and divorcing her husband. When her Aussie-soap-obsessed grandma sends her to Australia to recover, it seems a great opportunity for some rest and relaxation while she figures out what’s next.
But when Beth arrives in Australia things get off to a rocky start. To begin with, she’s on the wrong coast and there are deadly creatures everywhere. And if that weren’t enough, her neighbors are driving her crazy. She’s staying in the beautiful Margaret River wine region, right next door to a family-owned vineyard. It should be perfect, but the boisterous Hardy clan just don’t seem able to leave her alone. The usually reserved Beth is soon reluctantly embroiled in their family disputes and romantic entanglements. And eldest son Clayton Hardy is proving surprisingly persistent.
The more Beth gets to know Clayton, the more she sees what she wants for her future. But as the end of summer approaches, her past comes back to haunt her and tests her newfound relationship with Clayton to the limit.
“Beth Poole, you are a colossal twit,” Beth moaned once she got half a kilometer down the road and realized two things: first, how unforgivably rude she’d just been, and second, that she’d just left half her rental car’s toolkit on the side of the road.
Bloody ridiculous country. The heat must have already fried her brain.
She wasn’t sure what had contributed to her idiocy the most. It was a toss-up between her completely rational fear of creepy crawlies and the winded feeling she’d experienced on catching sight of the rural god who’d come to her rescue. His face had looked like something someone had carved out of granite with a blunt knife—all broad planes, deep lines, high cheekbones and a slightly off-center, once-broken nose. When she’d caught him studying her with a set of thickly lashed brown eyes—which were disconcertingly pretty in contrast with the rest of him—she had experienced genuine heart palpitations.
He was obviously from the area and had been wearing a faded blue short-sleeved shirt that fit tightly across a solid set of shoulders and was streaked with dust. His tan, no-nonsense shorts revealed thighs the size of tree trunks and equally muscled calves leading to a pair of battered brown leather boots. The man could pass as a world-class rugby player—bull-like, stocky. He’d smelled nice too. A combination of earthy male sweat with a hint of freshly laundered clothes.
“Listen to yourself.” She snorted, chagrined that she’d spent so much time daydreaming about some random man she would probably never see again, who no doubt thought she was a rude cow, or, more likely, a mad cow. Grumbling under her breath, she did a twelve-point turn on the narrow road and drove back to collect the jack and wrench—only to find them gone.
