Liese Campbell has an engagement for the weekend to stay with Alexander Colquhoun, the handsome, well-mannered heir of an Australian pastoral dynasty at his country seat some hours from Melbourne. Liese is English. She's come to Australia to work at her uncle's real-estate business and pay off her debts. Alexander has been looking for a place in the city. The luxury apartments Liese shows him have become sets for a relationship that satisfies their fantasies and her financial problems. Both players understand the rules. Or so she thinks. Across the ancient landscape they drive at dusk to his grand decaying mansion. Here Liese senses a change in Alexander and realizes that a different game has begun.

I was surprised this made it to the 50 must reads for 2012. I couldn't finish reading it and found the plot line very underwhelming.

It's intriguing & engrossing. I read it in one sitting. I liked that I didn't know where it was leading and couldn't predict its outcome. The characters were unusual and the story line was edgy. Good use of language too

Entertaining, but definitely not a 'must read'. I thought the story was underdeveloped.
