Misplaced Princess by Mari Carr and Lexxie Couper

Hot damn! I might have to consider facing my fears of giant-ass spiders, bugs and sharks if it means I can get my hands on this sexy hunk of stockman in the Australian Outback.

What’s it About?


Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway ’round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online-only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he’s on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter’s as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to. Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.

Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger-until he met Annie. Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo…and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter’s not normally one to poach his brother’s women, but he can’t keep his hands, lips, tongue and other body parts off this sexy city girl. When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end-or when Dylan finds out?

First Impressions

I was initially drawn to this novel because of the unique synopsis. Yes, there are countless romance novels out there which feature a woman falling for the brother of her love interest, but this novel had the added allure of international travel to the deserted wide-open spaces of Australia, online dating, and a billionaire’s daughter trying to find her way in life. On their own these various elements might be rather common in romance novel land, but together they created a story that’ll hold your interest from start to finish. not to mention a sexy romp in the ole hayloft.


Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

Dylan and Hunter are twins, so when Annie mistakes the one for the other in the Sydney airport, she doesn’t hesitate to greet who she thinks is her online crush with a tantalizing kiss. Hunter is more than willing to give in. Annie soon discovers the case of mistaken identity, but the blatant sexual chemistry she has with Hunter is thereafter undeniable.


You gotta give Hunter some credit in his attempt to stay clear of his brother’s girl in a sexual manner. Yes, he pretty much fails miserably, but still, it’s the thought that counts. Following their passionate airport kiss, the two engage in an intense couch make-out session, mutual masturbation, some oral in the hayloft, yet they refrain from actual intercourse until Hunter can talk with Dylan about his true feelings for Annie. Awww.


I mean, yeah, Annie and Dylan weren’t technically dating, but she and Hunter kind of straddled the line there in regards to appropriate behavior. In addition to straddling each other. These two have a definite physical connection, but Annie and Hunter also manage to connect on a deeper level. He shares his love of the land that is his home, and she reveals that she’s never truly been happy in New York, and is trying to find a place where she isn’t known just for her father’s name. And then they get naked again.


Series: Foreign Affairs, Book 1. For all of you out there who are worried about poor ole Dylan, don’t worry. He’s far from upset and is the feature of book 2. Which I’ll probably be reading.

Should you read it? The book might be quite predictable overall, but it’s cute, sexy, even a bit naughty, and is a quick read.

Smut Level: This book starts off almost with a sense of the forbidden in that Hunter doesn’t want to lay claim to his brother’s sheila. Once that misunderstanding is all cleared up thought? Oh my, dirty talkers, slight bondage, and the joys of a stockman who can tie a knot. Not to mention a lasting stamina to go all day and night.
