A cowboy's marriage of convenience may lead to a deadly honeymoon in the latest from New York Times bestselling author Elle James
With his ranch in financial trouble, cowboy Daniel Colton makes the perfect proposal to Megan Talbot—a marriage of convenience to save his business and ensure she receives her inheritance.
But spending night after night with the strawberry blonde beauty tests all boundaries of Daniel's self-control. And when a killer targets his new bride, vying for her estate, it sets off all of his protective instincts.
Daniel refuses to trade his honeymoon for a funeral. Now it's a race against the clock to track down the culprit and protect the wife who's starting to be so much more to him than just a business partner.
I enjoyed Daniel and Megan's story. It is well written, with sweet romance mixed with suspenseful twists that keeps the story going.
Daniel and Megan both have a reason to enter into the marriage of convenience, they need each others help to get to the next step in their lives. Yes, they are attracted to each other, but willing to convince themselves, that it will not be a problem.
But there are odd, dangerous, things happening around Daniel and Megan, too many close calls, to be calling them accidents. But there really isn't anyone, or any reason, to want either of them dead. But that doesn't stop the incidents from happening again.
I loved how Daniel and Megan just can't stay away from each other. They do try, most of the time, but the pull for each other is too strong.
Family is important to both of them, and they don't like to be lying to them about their relationship, but it can't be avoided, to reach the goal.
The Coltons of Oklahoma has been an interesting series to follow, I have enjoyed each book I have read, and Daniel's story didn't disappoint either! Finally, there was a chance to get to know more about Daniel, about his life, and about the years growing up. The love between him and Megan is so obvious, it was fun to watch them catch on with it.
The story is filled with loyal families, humorous moments, charismatic characters, adorable yet steamy romance, danger and fearful moments, mixed all together in a captivating tale
