A sexy jackaroo and a sultry jillaroo. Will fate take over from where they left off?

At thirteen, Zoe Montgomery's life changed overnight, the night her family and their property, Montagreen, went up in flames. The incident and her previous memories are wiped from her mind. Whisked away moments later by an unknown aunt, Zoe learns to grow up fast and learns the value of hard work.

Fifteen years later, after overhearing her aunt's whispers about Montagreen, and a girl called Zoe Montgomery, the name on her bracelet, Zoe's suspicions increase. She flees the only life she has ever known, and escapes her aunt's harsh lies and abuse, to return home to find answers and rebuild.

However, returning opens not only the devastation she'd left behind, it reveals the torment her childhood sweetheart suffered which almost destroyed his life.

As Jordan works on the restoration of Montagreen, can they battle their way through a mountain of obstacles and take over where they left off, or is it too late?  

The strike of a match can change a life.
Jordan figured he'd doused enough flames in one lifetime without having to extinguish another, although by the looks of things, the early signs were smouldering on the opposite side of the street.
His sister Jade sat at a rustic table, alfresco style, with a woman he'd never met. For some reason he squinted, trying to zero in for a better look, but tore his gaze away hoping he hadn't been spotted.
Curiosity got the better of him, and he took another pleasurable view at long slender legs crossed at the ankles. He shook his head and set his body into escape mode, but as usual, Jade honed in on him before he had time to flee.
'Jordan, Jordan. Over here.' She shot a hand in mid air and waved him over, accompanied by that cheeky grin he'd known all his life. He'd been through this scenario a couple of times now. Her idea of pulling Cupid’s love bow was over the top, but he had to admit, she tried hard.
He sucked back a breath, stepped off the kerb and sauntered across the street toward them, praying for a quick getaway. Drawing closer, he regarded the woman under the shadow of his Akubra. A hint of recognition tapped at his senses. His stomach muscles clenched and sweat beaded across his brow.
The woman looked up, snagging him in her line of vision. His heart tripped over a few beats when her cursory glance suggested he was a mere stranger. There wasn't a sign of recognition or something to indicate they had a past together. He felt mighty out of sorts, and turned his attention toward Jade.
'Do you want to join us? I know you can't do without your coffee.'
He found it difficult to articulate his thoughts. The blood in his body thrashed about in his veins. Could he be mistaken?
'This is my brother' Jade glared at the woman sitting opposite her. 'I'm shocked.' She placed an open palm to her chest. 'Here we are chatting like long lost friends, and we haven't even introduced ourselves.' A light chuckle escaped her lips. 'I'm Jade Townsend.' Jade reached across the table and they exchanged a brief handshake.
'I've also only realised.' The woman smiled. 'My name is Zoe Montgomery. I've recently moved here. My family used to live in the area.'
'How nice.'
Jordan didn't know if Zoe had noticed his sister's face pale, and he wondered if she could sense the galloping of his heartbeat.
'I've inherited my parents’ property, Montagreen. I'm going to rebuild and I'm looking for a good carpenter...builder.'
'That's fabulous,' Jade said and took a quick gulp of coffee. She cleared her throat. 'Um...Jordan is looking for work. He's a great carpenter.'
Jordan's body temperature upped a few degrees and his mind slipped back to when Zoe was thirteen. Overloaded with memories, his chest tightened. Jade gave him a glance, trying to signal him in sign language and for the life of him, he couldn't figure out what she was going on about. His little sister was in the matchmaking arena once again and she enjoyed every minute of it.
Jade’s eyes narrowed, and she shot him a scolding look. 'Jordan. Have you heard anything we've been saying?'
'Yeah. Sorry.' He took off his Akubra, held it in his left hand and angled his body slightly, facing Zoe. 'It's good to meet you, Zoe.'
She smiled the smile he'd treasured for years, forcing cute dimples to indent her cheeks. 
Zoe extended her hand and they exchanged a light handshake. He tried to swallow and made the connection brief. Talk about feeling out of sorts. He expected her hand to feel soft but instead, he felt calluses at the base of each finger.
What in the hell had she been up to for the last fifteen years?
