Ariana Wilson’s fiancé ran off with his high school sweetheart, leaving her alone in a strange town with no money, no job, and no home. Desperate work, she applies as a cook for a ranch.
Cody Carrington has a rule: No single, pretty women are to be employed on his ranch. They always cause to much trouble. One look at Ariana screams trouble with a capital T. But trouble is to be his middle name. He learns his fiancée ran off with hers, leaving him in a desperate bind. Per his grandfather’s will, he has to be married by his 30th birthday or he loses the ranch to his conniving cousin who wants to sell the land to developers. He has three weeks to find another wife. And Ariana just might fit the bill. He just has to convince her to stay as his cook, but more importantly, his wife.
Can the pair overcome their shared history to make a connection and fulfil each others desires?
This is the first in the Hypnotized series by Lucia Jordan and was sent to me via e-mail as a free digital book.
The author writes short “books” to pull you into a certain situation hoping you will buy the three other books in the series. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. This time I didn’t.
The story line was good and the sex scenes were very hot and steamy but I just never became invested in the characters so I’ve decided not to go any further in the series. Besides, I know what will happen – Ariana will marry Cody, there will be ups and down but in the end the feelings they have will turn to love and the will have a HEA.
A pleasant read.
