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.

I had to get adjusted to Liam because at first he just shook me with his coldness and cockyness. But when your a gorgeous billionaire and all you have known is working and being shoved into an unwanted life it is to be expected. Except he wasn’t expecting the one thing that his father was going to entrust to him which was marry and have an heir or lose everything. Abby on the other hand has worked hard to get where she is and helped her family yet it may not be enough so when a golden opportunity strikes she jumps on it. These two are so different in many ways but they had one thing in common, trying to save what their family built up. Throughout this novel there were times I wanted to slap Liam but other times I just wanted to love him. The author did an amazing job with her characters and giving the readers a feel of how the characters were in each scene. The sexual encounters were hot but also had taste with the genre that this is for. I really enjoyed the flow of the novel and how easy it was to become involved in the story line. It was flawless and smooth.
The cover captures the characters in this novel in one of those moments with the city in the background. And I think that after you read the novel you will agree that this was a perfect design for it. I highly recommend this because it is more than just another romance it actually has meaning and come on who doesn’t love reading about sexy billionaire men!!!!
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.
