The Butterfly Hunter Trilogy [Boxed Set] (Revised)
Dave Taylor is an Aussie tour guide specialising in trips through the Queensland Outback. In some ways, however, Dave himself feels lost. He has been alone this past year, since his childhood sweetheart Denise left him and married another man. Change comes via Dave's latest rather unexpected client, Nicholas Goring, the youngest son of an English earl. Nicholas is on the hunt for an undiscovered species of butterfly, and has hired Dave to help guide his quest. Although the two men are from very different backgrounds, they become friends, and soon their relationship grows into something more. But how easy will it be for an Australian and an Englishman to find common ground?
This boxed set contains the novels Butterfly Hunter, Of Dreams and Ceremonies, and The Thousand Smiles of Nicholas Goring, as well as the (free) short story Like Leaves to a Tree.

"This trilogy takes us from the initial, hesitant romance between Aussie tour guide Dave Taylor and English aristo Nicholas Goring to their lavish wedding in the UK, and seven years into their shared life back in Australia. It also takes us on a mystical tour of the Australian Outback, where the quest for a new species of butterfly takes our heroes to a Dreamtime site that lies hidden to all but those permitted by the Ancestors to find it - much to the chagrin of a mining company on the scent of some precious iron ore in the final story. I learned a lot about Indigenous Australian culture reading this, and finally got to understand the meaning and purpose of Songlines! The characters are lovely, with friends and relatives creating a supportive family around the new couple; the scenery is beautifully described; it's a satisfying, feelgood romance with a hint of tragedy to give it an edge. If, like me, you're a bit squeamish about explicit sex scenes, be warned there are many blow-by-blow accounts, as it were, of Dave and Nicholas getting it on - but they're not the be-all and end-all of the narrative, there's so much more to it than that (and if you like explicit sex, you're in for a treat!) All in all, a really enjoyable read." Rohase Piercy on Goodreads
"I didn't want to finish this book cause that meant leaving Dave and Nicholas and their wonderful world. Even big bad mining companies couldn't dissuade them from doing what was right. I loved this, it brought Australia into my living room and all its wonders along with it. Well written, no typos and great Aussie words like doona and Akubra and another word which I can't remember which is basically a spork lol. The tale of two completely different worlds and how they join together seamlessly. I refuse to give the story away, just read the book and enjoy it as much as i did." Phase58 on Amazon UK
