"Outback Vampires"

Lady Daniela had been away quite awhile - the memories of OZ and her Outback land still haunted her; but she had matured and come to take back what was rightfully hers. She didn't count on meeting a bushman at Elle's Bar that took her breathe away and made her crave nothing but him - Devlin. For his part, Dev knew she was different and took her anyway.

It is Daniela (Danny) and Devlin (Dev) against the Outback and the vampires who took her land. Ian, the man her mother married after Danny's father died. Mother later met the sun as she never got over his passing. Lord Charles Ruskin, Region Master and ruthless vamp himself is behind Ian's deeds. His games are not for the faint hearted.

On the way to Thieve's Station, Danny is badly injured and Dev struggles to save her and himself from falling more deeply than he has. Danny feels it may be time to have a third-marked servant after all, but the reason for the marking isn't left to chance or to Dev to accept before he is in a life-or-death battle for the station and Danny's future.

This is the third book in Joey W. Hill's vampire series and I think the best yet. Danny is written as a waif who will kill you without a second thought and Dev seems to call to Hugh Jackman to play him. Not that this would ever be made into a movie - 'waaaayyy to hot sex-wise.

Congratulations, Ms. Hill - you've done it again!

He was a lost soul - until he found his mistress.

Lady Daniela has never taken a full human servant. At two hundred years, sheís always put it off, having a bachelorís attitude toward bonding with another, even an inferior human. However, on her return to her sheep station in Western Australia in 1953, she meets Dev, a war veteran and laconic bushman, who has the talents to help her reclaim her station from her motherís lover, who usurped her position there forty years before.

But after she takes care of that nasty bit of business, sheís also intending to rid Western Australia of a corrupt Region Master who is 500 years old and therefore over twice her age and strength. While a full human servant, particularly one with Devís unique talents, can augment her skills and resources, the more she gets to know him, the more reluctant she is to bind him to her in a way that might get him killed. But Dev has his own thoughts on the matter, and she will soon find itís easier for a vampire to survive in the desert sun than for her to survive without him by her side.
