Liam Whitmore III is floored by the surprise stipulation in his father’s will—provide an heir within one year or he’ll lose the controlling portion of Whitmore Incorporated to his cousin Spencer. The corporation is Liam’s life. He’ll do anything to keep his cousin’s hands off of it, including finding a woman who’ll bear his child. Though finding the right woman seems an impossible task since he doesn’t have room in his life for anything except running the company. He doesn’t want a wife, just an heir.
Abby Haden’s family is about to lose their ranch, the only life her ailing father and brother have ever known. She feels helpless and is desperate to help. When the most coveted bachelor in Austin, Liam Whitmore III, also known as the Takeover Tyrant, offers to pay her to have his child it seems too incredible to be true. She’s all but given up hope of ever having a baby. Not only will her dream of being a mother come true, but she can also save the family ranch.
It was just supposed to be a business deal, but Abby and Liam find it hard to keep their hearts out of what it takes to make a baby. Even as they sort out their feelings, others have their eye on Whitmore Incorporated. Liam and Abby will soon discover how far they’ll go to make sure Abby never produces that heir.

A Review by Beckey (originally published on the blog)
This is one of those reads where I loved and hated. Intense and you could sense something BIG was going to happen somewhere….
Liam, father puts a stipulation that he needs an heir with in a year or the company will go to his cousin… But Liam isn’t the type to settle down and has no desire to be tied down… Knowing that if he was going to get an heir that means he will need to really look around.
Abby is his mother’s nurse … and Liam thinks that she may be able to help him out.. An agreement is made and a contract is drawn up but his cousin is the villain that is set out on selling Liam’s father’s company.
What will happen?
Like I said in the beginning of this review you could tell something was going to happen and Liam’s cousin, was going to be a problem. Other than that I really want to give Liam some sort of wake up (brain duster) to realize what was going on. He couldn’t be that dense not to realize what was happening right underneath him…
4 stars. I received the book for an honest review. Thank you.
Olivia Starke calls the Ozarks home. One of the most beautiful areas in the country, she loves hiking trails with her dogs, kayaking on the numerous waterways, and enjoying southern Missouri’s fresh air and sunshine.
She’s also ‘Mom’ to four dogs, a growing number of kitties that show up at her door, and four VERY spoiled horses that do little to earn their keep. Not that she’d ever hold that against them.
She’s a HUGE fangirl of Doctor Who and to a lesser extent Supernatural, and has a pretty interesting love triangle (or square?) going on in her head between the Doctor and the Winchesters.
