Southern Texas heats up when four roughneck billionaires set their sights on love in the new series from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.

Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.

Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he's ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone's determined to win her affection and show the world that he's more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy's classy and beautiful - she'll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she's sexy and funny is just a bonus.

There's one tiny problem - Ivy's as dirt poor as Boone was. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What's Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he's falling for is, well, in his league?

Wowser! You know the old story that a woman always wants to change a man after she gets him? Well how about a man who targets a woman specifically because he wants to be changed (among other things of course)? Who wouldn't love to be in Ivy's shoes when a big, burly, scruffy,determined uncouth man hones in to make her "his" in hopes that she would bring a little class to her life. OH, and did I mention he was a billionaire!

Boone is a roughneck oil driller owner who has never progressed from the attitude and culture of a guy not used to the "civilized" ways of the upper class. A little chip on his shoulder, he barrels his way through negotiations like a bull in a china shop. Speaking freely and straightforward he approaches Ivy with the same mentality that he does with everything else...refreshing to say the least. At least you know what he is thinking even if you might entertain the idea that he is a stalker or at the very least a nutcase!

And what will happen when Boone finds out "Ivy" isn't necessarily the person he thought she was?

This is a straight forward romance with straightforward dialog and plenty of "dirty talk"! Not for the squeamish literary prudes, but I for one love a quick "love" story and that's what I got. I had to keep reading and finished it in one day. Not a paranormal but definitely a fantasy read (someone's fantasy anyway!)

  1. Well I'm gonna say that all the money that I had I earned in an honest way. Yes, I bet on sports here, but this is also an honest income. These engis don't just come to me because I have to learn a lot of information before making a successful bet. That's it guys. Don't think betting is easy.

  2. Checked out HoraCredit's site about getting a credit nebancar by phone here. It’s awesome how easy they’ve made it to get a loan without stepping into a bank. Perfect for busy schedules! The whole process looks super user-friendly and quick. I’m thinking of giving it a shot next time I’m in a pinch. Anyone used their service before? Would love to hear some firsthand experiences!
