About the book: 

Rob Matheson's a fighter. Flattening enemies with his fists or with his legendary practical jokes, he's a tough enemy, and a troublesome friend. But Rob doesn't know how much longer he can keep up the act. As his buddies get married one by one, he's left with his lonely life - and the sinking feeling he lost more than his dreams when he traded them for a thick skin. Now Rob's father has issued a challenge - he'll give 200 acres of prime Montana ranchland to the first of his four sons to wed. No conditions, no meddling. Could this be a chance to become the man he really wants to be?

Morgan Tate's worked for years to climb the ladder to a top job at Cassidy Wineries, but Duncan Cassidy, the boss' son, always stands in her way. Now he's issued an ultimatum; marry him or he'll make sure she never works in the wine industry again. Morgan wants marriage - and a family - but not with Duncan. A certain cowboy in Chance Creek, Montana, has stolen her heart.

When Rob offers Morgan a proposition - marry him and split the land - they both find themselves with an ethical dilemma. They don't know each other well enough to wed, but they can't lie about their intentions before God and man, either.

Now they've got sixty days to fall in love, and a passel of family and friends determined to keep them apart. The victims of Rob's previous jokes are lining up to get their revenge, and Morgan's half-sister, Claire, is stirring up their mother's past.

Will it take the biggest practical joke of all to convince the world - and themselves - that they're truly meant to be man and wife?



Excerpt

“It isn't a joke,” he said softly. “I want a chance to change. To be the man I know I can be. I wish I could say that I love you, that I want to spend every waking moment of my life with you, and ask you to marry me for real. I think I will be able to say that to you someday soon. I think…really soon.” He swallowed hard at the very thought. “But we've known each other for so short a time, I can't say it yet. I'm sorry.” He got to his knees again, ready to stand up and head right back out the door. He never should have said anything to Morgan. Now he'd probably blown his chance with the only woman he thought he could fall in love with someday.

“I understand,” Morgan said calmly, freezing him in place. “I appreciate how honest you've been. Sit down again for a minute. Can I tell you what I want?”

He sat down, wrapped his arms around his knees and waited, his heart pounding at what she might say. This was by far the strangest conversation he'd ever had. The most liberating, too. “Definitely.”

“I want three things and I'll do just about anything to get them.” She looked him straight in the eye, though he had a feeling it was hard for her to do so. “First, I want a winery—which means I need a vineyard.” She held up one finger. “Second, I have some money saved up, but even if I had some land, I'd still need about twenty-thousand dollars more to buy rootstock and get it started.” Another finger. “And third…”

“Third…?” Rob held his breath.

“I want a baby.”

Heat blossomed inside him the moment his brain processed the concept of making a baby with Morgan. Images of her in his bed, writhing beneath him, gazing at him as he joined with her, clouded his head until he couldn't think straight. Morgan wasn't saying no to his proposal. In fact, maybe she was saying… “A baby with me?”

  13. I now own about half of your books, Cora, but the other half are still on my amazon Wish List. But when I get a little ahead on my budget every once in awhile, I go to the Wish List to get a couple more of my romances, and your westerns. :-) I appreciate your writing and the positive note it puts on the end of a long day that has seen a lot of negative in the news in the surrounding neighborhoods. I try to read a little romance before I turn out the lights at night--and I definitely sleep better for that! Thanks for the post. jdh2690@gmail.com
