From the author of The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots comes another funny and deliciously romantic tale of a woman in a man’s world.

To tame a bad boy you will need:
a. One hard hat
b. 350 sulky FIFO workers
c. A tropical cyclone

Wendy Hopkins arrives in the Pilbara to search for the father who abandoned her at birth. So getting mixed up in construction site politics is not high on her ‘to do’ list.

But when she takes a job as the new Safety Manager at the iron ore wharf just out of town, she quickly becomes the most hated person in the area. Nicknamed ‘The Sergeant’, she is the butt of every joke and the prime target of notorious womanizer, Gavin Jones.

Giving up is not an option, though.

For, as it turns out, only Wendy can save these workers from the coming storm, find a man who wants to stay buried and ... put a bad boy firmly in his place.
