When they were teens, Ric Donato loved Lara Seymour but was sent to an Outback ranch as punishment for stealing a car. Eighteen years later, Ric sees a picture of a battered Lara and convinces her to leave her husband and promises he can safely secure her at the ranch that had saved him all those years ago. Before Lara leaves for safety she asks for one night with Ric. Three months later, when Ric is ready to return to Lara, she asks him not to come. Can he convince her to give him a chance, or have too many years of abuse taken their toll? The Outback Marriage Ransom (3) by Emma Darcy is an emotional tale of love lost and found and the demons that drive an abused woman. It has tenderness, passion and lots of feeling.
