It’s east meets west as two strong-willed

individuals battle it out for the right to the land - owned by one family, used by the other for two hundred years.  An eccentric clause in a centuries-old lease provides the only option that will allow Shea Hardin to retain possession of the ranch that has been her family home for six generations.  But it requires something she never anticipated: marry into the family who owns the land and remain married for one year.  If he refuses or walks out before the year is up, the land is hers.  Shea is certain a good dose of country living will send the billionaire running back to his posh New York lifestyle.  It’s a no brainer.

But she didn’t consider how his hungry lips could make her feel.  And she didn’t count on falling in love.

Alec Morreston needs the land.  He reasons that Shea Hardin and her backwoods attempt to keep the ranch is nothing more than a minor hindrance and he’s sure the odds are stacked in his favor.  He accepts the challenge believing he will have her bags packed and be helping little Miss Tradition out the door in record time.  

      But the moment he say’s “I do” and gazes into those amazing blue eyes, Alec knows he’s in trouble.


“Very good read.  Sensual and provocative with a sense of rustic charm.  The characters are intense, sensual, crazy and funny.”


This small town romance is full of Texas heat.. Perfect reading for a hot afternoon!
