    I can handle, even enjoy, class and social conscious in a Regency romance. Heck, I've gotten a kick out of the media's side eyes about Megan, a mixed race-divorced-AMERICAN, marrying the adorable and beloved Prince Harry of the British Royal Firm.What I have a problem with is the same issues in an Australian romance published in 2009. Is it a wealth issue, a racial issue, a Harlequin Romance issue, or all of the above? Isn't Australia essentially a democracy?The vanilla h, second cousin three times removed, has been in love with the H, the alpha heir to the cattle estate forever. The h's mother is still mourned by EVERYONE including the H and his dad which leads to some distressing thoughts to me as a reader. The distressing thoughts increase when the H's manipulative JR Ewing-style papa goes off the rails at the thought of the H and h getting together. JR has a plain and downtrodden heiress and an arranged MOC all ready for his son. Again... 2009!Okay, I was skimming as I had just a few hours to get my next book on Open Library, but that was probably best.Creepy and murderous overtones lay over the romance as the Pater of the family makes himself ill in order to stop the engagement between his son and the daughter of the woman he may or may have loved.Did the bad Dad push the heroine in front of a car, was it the evil woman the H hates, or was it the pathetic daughter from the wealthy family? Did the father try and do her in or was he the hero that saves her? Another romance that would have been better off a mystery with just a couple of extra chapters.

    Kept waiting for something interesting to happen. Two inhumanly gorgeous, well-connected, young and talented people face a tempest in a teacup because only one of them is a billionaire's child. Oh the humanity.

    The Australian Society Bride, by Margaret Way, narrated by Federay Holmes, produced by Whole Story Audio Books, downloaded from audible.com.The Blanchards are the richest family in Australia, and the son and heir to the fortune is Boyd Blanchard, the most sought-after bachelor in Australia. Leona Blanchard, raised in the same house with Boyd but not a close relative, was always in love with Boyd and he took care of her starting the day her mother was killed in a freak accident jumping a wall on her horse. Leona knew that Boyd’s father had in mind that Boyd marry another heiress. So Leona didn’t allow herself to have hope for Boyd. But, on a weekend visit to her uncle’s house, she and Boyd find themselves strongly attracted to each other. She finds out that Boyd has always loved her too and was waiting for her to grow up. But when they announce their engagement, Boyd’s father is set against it and will do anything to stop the marriage. Not a particularly exciting book. Lots of romantic feelings and descriptions of sex. The narrator was excellent.

    Boyd and Leona have grown up together. Each secretly has feelings for the other. Leona doesn't feel like she is good enough for Boyd.At a family even they share a sizzling kiss. Then later on, after finding out Leona's stepbrother had tried to steal the family jewels. Boyd decides it's time they get married. Boyds father is unhappy with the union, and tries everything to stop it.An enjoyable read on the whole, although I did find it annoying that it took them both so long to say, they loved each other.

    I just started this book, but so far the story line is very similar to another book by the same author, "Wedding At Wangaree Valley". Well I finished it. I liked this book better than "Wedding". The story was more realistic, except maybe the ending. Just disappointed because the 2 books had the same storline.

    Re-read: April 18, 2011 Reason: downloaded audiobook from NetLibrary. I'm Spring Cleaning and I forgot I had read it already. Too many books. So little time.
