else in Australia?
Meet the "other" Australians -- the Aristocratic Sir William, for example, and his enduring friendship

Alain James Goldenbough, endowed with great looks and intelligence, is born in 1960 into Western Australia's richest family. His famous colourful posy from the age of ten symbolizes his high regard for women and the New Mothers Paradise, his brainchild. He reserves his red rose-posy to his only love, Elizabeth Sinclair, and he leads them both to a vow of virginity.
Together with Elizabeth, Alain will face the responsibilities of his two legacies: his Goldenbough Australian ancestry and his maternal Montagne French heritage. But many perils and schemes await him and he will find himself put to the ultimate test.
Sometimes sad, sometimes joyous, and always mesmerizing, Alain's inimitable story will take you on an unforgettable journey. From the wildly beautiful Kalgoorlie-Boulder of Australia, to the enchanting archipelago of Recherche on the Southern Ocean, to the charming cith of Perth, and the delicate splendor of the outskirts of Paris, follow the life-changing odyssey of My Australian Prince!
