The Unexpected Husband - Lindsay Armstrong. At the same time she took in the posters on the wall, the books and magazines overflowing from a whole wall of honey pine bookshelves, the polished timber floor with a slightly ruckled rug in jewel-bright ruby swirls on a yellow background. There were two computers on the table behind him, an easel, a skylight above, and a particularly healthy Kentia palm flourishing in a wicker basket in one corner.

Her husband needed more than a little girl to protect - he needed a real wife.

Prim and proper rnalist Holly Harding is looking for her first big scoop. Disturbed, angry, and at odds That just about summed up her reaction to Rick Emerson, Evonne thought bitterly. Ever since she'd first laid eyes on him. When she agreed to do her employer a favor, she'd expected to be helping a young, untried writer to organize and type his book. This sophisticated, attractive, dangerous specimen was not part of her calculations. Her husband needed more than a little girl to protect - he needed a real wife.

'Go to hell, Joe Jordan,' she whispered. 'And don't expect me to do the dishes!'

This had even more of a dated feel than its published 2000 date, more of a '80s feel. The setting of the Outback was fun and the dog Meg was cute but overall, was pretty slow plodding. The hero and heroine had a tendency to call each other by their first and last names, supposed to be sassy communication between each other, that didn't really work for me. With the set-up of heroine's sister wanting a baby with hero and thinking they had a sexual relationship for more than half the book, it was hard for me to connect, especially with heroine trying her hardest to be standoffish. Meh feeling except for different outback location.

Lydia is concerned about the man that her sister is seeing. She is afraid that he is going to hurt her, so she goes to speak to Joe herself. The first thing that he asks her is if she wants to sleep with him. She knows that her sister Daisy should stay away from this character, but her sister informs her that her biological clock is ticking and she wants Joe to be the father of her child. Lydia is shocked, but tells her sister to try to play hard to get instead of falling in his lap. Her sister agrees and both sisters say goodbye. Lydia is going to an Australlian Cattle Ranch to temporarily fill in for the vet there and Daisy is going on a music tour.
Lydia gets to the ranch only to discover that Joe owns half of it and that he has decided to stay on while she is there. He has made it very clear that she is the sister that he wants. Lydia has all kinds of obstacles in her way, her sister for one and her past for another.
The story of Joe and Lydia is strange. There are a lot of layers to this very short story. Interesting, Exciting, no not really. Mostly the reader is just peeling back the different layers, examining them, and than tossing them aside until the next one is there. The reader can see the end result, its just a matter of getting there. I found no real reason to like the characters. I found Lydia to be bossy and inconsiderate at times. I thought Joe was a wimp at times. He was to quick to apologize for everything and he always seemed to give into Lydia. I am not sure I would recommend investing time and money into this book.

I agree with reviewer Jennifer. The characters were unbelievable. Linda is nosey, combative, hard, no-it-all, controlling, insulting (I can go on forever) and behaved like she's 50 instead of 26. I can't stand people like Linda. Ms. Armstrong, please, please, please, never write about characters Like Linda and Joe anymore.

Linda and Brad were married for about a year when he died. Brad has been dead for nearly 6 years. Linda is what? 26 years old? So how can she say she has had the most perfect marriage in the world? You would think Brad is a Saint. For goodness sakes, they were teens just getting to know each other before he died. I was so tired of hearing Brad this, St. Brad that. By the time I got through half of the book I was so fed up about the perfect Brad that I wanted to put the book down.

I don't even want to talk about Joe's character. But hey, I paid for the book so I finished reading it. The ending wasn't that great either.

I wanted to give this 1.5 stars.
