Blurb:
Ethan Cruz should be mending fences on his Montana ranch, but
instead he’s driving to the Chance Creek, Montana, airport – to pick up the
bride he didn’t know he had. This latest salvo in his ongoing practical joke
battle with his best friend, Rob Matheson, has gone too far, and Ethan plans to
send his “bride” right back home, then get busy plotting his revenge. One look
at Autumn Leeds changes his mind, however. Perhaps he needs a bride, after all.
A breathtakingly beautiful city bride.
Autumn Leeds needs a story – fast – or she’s going to lose her
lucrative contract with CityPretty Magazine, so when she sees the crazy video
plea for a modern mail-order bride for a cowboy, it sounds like the story of
the century. Making a video of her own, she casts herself as the perfect
mail-order bride for a rancher, but when she finally reaches Montana, she’s
surprised to find Ethan’s the perfect cowboy husband-to-be. Against her better
judgment, her plan to keep her handsome groom at arm’s length disintegrates
into a night of passion spent in his arms.
Ethan knows he can’t keep playing this game – he has to come clean
with Autumn and tell her the truth; about the practical joke and about the
state of his ranch. He’s about to lose it all because of the debts his mother
racked up before his parents’ deaths. Now his sister, Claire, wants to sell the
ranch and collect what little money they can. He’ll be out of a home and a job,
and in no shape to support the bride he desperately wants to marry, after all.
Autumn’s in bigger trouble than ever. Not only has she fallen in
love with the subject of her expose – she might be carrying his child. If she
doesn’t write this article and secure her job for another year, she’ll lose
everything – her career, her apartment, and more importantly, her family’s
approval. The only alternative is to stay and marry Ethan. But how can she
trust a man she’s just met when she knows too well that men always let you
down?
Can a love based on lies last?
Excerpt:
She glanced up at Ethan to find him
glancing down, and the warm feeling curved around her insides again. Surely New
York men couldn’t be shorter than this crew, or any less manly, but she
couldn’t remember the last time she’d been around so much blatant testosterone.
She must be ovulating. Why else would she react like this to a perfect
stranger?
Ethan touched her arm. “This way.”
She followed him down the hall, the others falling into place behind them like
a cowboy entourage. She stifled a sudden laugh at the absurdity of it all,
slipped her hand into her purse and grabbed her digital camera, capturing the
scene with a few clicks. Had this man – this…cowboy – sat down and planned out
the video he’d made? She tried to picture Ethan bending over a desk and
carefully writing out “Sweet. Good cook. Ready for children.”
She blew out a breath and wondered
if she was the only one stifling in this sudden heat. Ready for children?
Hardly. Still…if she was going to make babies with anyone…
Shaking her head to dispel that
dangerous image, she found herself at the airport’s single baggage carousel. It
was just shuddering to life and within moments she pointed out first one, then
another sleek, black suitcase. Ethan took them both, began to move toward the
door and then faltered to a stop. He avoided her gaze, focusing on something
far beyond her shoulder. “It’s just…I wasn’t….”
Oh God, Autumn thought, a sudden
chill racing down her spine. Her stomach lurched and she raised a hand as if to
ward off his words. She hadn’t even considered this.
He’d taken one look and decided to
send her back.
