Gage Cooper has always wanted a particular piece of family land. Not only for the oil on the property, but to prove to his father that Gage’s past doesn’t define his future. When his dad wills the land to stranger Charlotte Wilkinson and all Gage gets is a mysterious key, he’s determined to do anything to get his rightful inheritance back.

Charlotte Wilkinson never expected to inherit a piece of property in Sweet Ridge, Texas –the Aussie businesswoman is focused on building an environmental analyst career in America. But the moment arrogant oil-man Gage Cooper walks into her office accusing her of seducing his father, all plans for selling the property to him fly out the window.

Then fate threatens to send her back to Australia and the dueling duo are forced to accept a fake marriage to keep their dreams alive. But as they discover common ground, and a surprising chemistry together, suddenly Gage must decide what’s worth more: the land he’s always coveted or a future with Charlotte?

In this series, each story is written by a different author.  This one is written by a new-to-me author.  I really enjoyed the way she wrote the connection between Charlotte and Gage, as well as Gage and his brothers.

One of the things I loved about this story is that it delved into Gage’s dad a bit more than the first book did.  While the underlying theme to all the stories is their dad and his will and the reason he did what he did, I felt it wasn’t delved into as deeply in the first story as in this one.  It was a bit like having a love story within the love story.  Very sweet and made me even more curious about what the last story will hold.

The big explosion in the relationship between Gage and Charlotte is very obvious, seen from miles away.  I almost felt as though the things Gage did weren’t really in line with his true personality.  But maybe that’s the point, him finding his true self.  Blood over money, love over land, etc.

Regardless, I liked this book a lot and feel I’d like to check out some of her other stories.  She already has a bit of a library so I just have to decide where to start.

3.5 stars
