Freelance photographer Sebastian Richards has put aside travelling the world to show his grandmother he is capable of helping out on the family farm, even though it’s hard to let go of his wanderlust.

In His Outback Temptation (Prickle Creek #4) by Annie Seaton, Sebastian Richards has traveled the world in his career as a freelance photographer. However, now he's returning home to Prickle Creek as promised to help out on the family farm. Luckily, he runs into Isabella Romano who needs his help to escape an uncomfortable situation. Yet, she's only in town for six weeks and Sebastian is planning to stay. Will Sebastian be able to convince Isabella that they're good together or will they let their chance at happy ever after slip away?

I have really enjoyed the other books of this series and have been looking forward to Sebastian's story and I've got to say that Ms. Seaton does not disappoint. Really, right from the beginning, I was hooked because I couldn't help but sympathize with the hero, as his career is important to him and going home is something he isn't looking forward to because he's never felt like he fits in at the farm, even though he has a really close relationship with his cousins. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine meet that had me smiling, as the heroine desperately needs him. Why can't some men take a hint?

With the dialogue, it was riveting and had me loving the growing relationship between this couple, as they have so many obstacles to overcome to be together. Will the heroine give up her dreams to be with Sebastian? Will Sebastian go back on his promise to stay at Prickle Creek? Moreover, I really liked both the main characters, as the heroine has done everything she can to achieve her dreams, which is proven by what she's accomplished. I also liked her independence and how resilient she is when it comes to getting her dad to stop being so stubborn. Will she convince her dad to do the right thing when it comes to his relationship with her mom? Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was that she didn't allow anyone to influence her decisions, no matter how much the secondary characters pushed her to decide to stay. No way could she give up everything she's worked so hard for. 

While the hero, he's accomplished so much and it made me feel sorry for him that he had to come back to Prickle Creek because of the promise he made to his family. However, in saying that, I liked that being in Prickle Creek opened up some brilliant possibilities when it came to his career as a photographer because there's no way he could give up on taking pictures. It's in his blood and he's so good at it. I also liked the hero's confidence, how determined he is to do what's right by his family and how determined he was to win the heroine over. Will he be able to do right by everyone, especially when he wants a future with Isabella?

Overall, Ms. Seaton has delivered a splendid read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was heady and intense from the moment they meet; the romance was on the sweet side, but had me loving this couple together; and the ending was heartwarming, as the hero can't let the heroine get away. She means too much to him to let her go. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely, as these two are living the dream and I was so glad that Sebastian's family approved. I would recommend His Outback Temptation by Annie Seaton, if you enjoy the friends to lovers trope or books by authors Margaret Way, Fiona McArthur, Fleur McDonald and Nicki Edwards.
