Description of this Book

Liese Campbell has an engagement for the weekend: to stay with Alexander Colquhoun, the well-mannered heir of a pastoral dynasty, at his property in western Victoria. Working in real estate, the luxury apartments Liese has been showing Alexander have become sets for a relationship that satisfies their fantasies - and helps pay her debts. It's a game. Both players understand the rules. Across the ancient landscape they drive at dusk to his grand decaying mansion. Here Liese senses a change in Alexander, and realises a different game has begun. A trap has been set, but how and why? And for whom?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review ... Many pages of The Engagement are burnished with the smartness, eloquence and dry wit of Hooper's prose, her sense of atmosphere and her insights into sex and the fragile self. -- The Monthly
