A Bride for the Maverick Millionaire - Marion Lennox (HR #4360 - Jan 2013)

Series: Journey Through the Outback (Book 2)

Rachel Cotton has high hopes for her cruise through the beautiful Kimberley region -- surely this will be the perfect chance to forget her past and enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation? But gorgeous shipmate Finn Kinnard seems much more interested in stirring her up!

Finn might make Rachel feel all woman, but he also warns her that romantically he can't be relied on. But when a high-octane adventure puts this claim to the test, Rachel discovers there's much more to Finn than meets the eye -- and that he might be just the man to entrust her fragile heart to.…

Good book.  I liked both Rachel and Finn.  Rachel is still trying to recover from the accident that caused the death of her baby and the end of her marriage.  She is on the cruise with her friend Maud (see Her Outback Rescuer) and has no intention of getting involved with any man.  She is more interested in the rock formations and cave paintings that she will see.  She doesn't expect to be attracted to Finn and she doesn't want to be.  She was treated badly by her ex-husband and has serious trust issues now.  Finn is on the ship undercover.  He owns the cruise line and is trying to find out why this particular route has problems with poor performance.  He and Rachel are constantly thrown together because they are the only young and single people on the boat.  Finn and his half brother and sister are products of shipboard romances by their father and he has a poor opinion of love.  He does his best to keep his distance from Rachel but she is shattering all his previous opinions about women.  When they end up stranded he is amazed at how capable and unflappable she is.  I loved the way that she constantly surprised him and her attitude that she doesn't need to depend on a man.  Her trust issues created a real problem for them when she found out who he really was and it took Maud pointing out some things to open her eyes.
