Your date with Bachelor #3 includes champagne and chocolate in the limo that collects you, a helicopter tour of Marietta and the surrounding mountains and valleys, and dinner at a five star restaurant in Great Falls. While oil baron Linc Brady wines and dines you, a main service will completely clean your home.
Who could resist this tempting offer, but Meg Canon plans to do just that. She is only home to clean out her childhood bedroom for her brother’s new step-daughter and then she’s outta her childhood small town and back to her life in Chicago, but when she meets the sexy, renegade millionaire while she’s stuck in the snow, sparks fly and Meg is tempted to maybe stay a little longer.
Linc Brady is new in town and happy to help a kid in need, but this? Technically he doesn’t owe Meg a damned thing after she bids on him, after setting him up for the Marietta bachelor auction in the first place, but her high-class city polish is his fatal weakness and makes her impossible to forget. When she agrees to come home with him, he makes it clear he’s a confirmed bachelor. This is a one-night thing. One night that turns into nine months and maybe a lifetime…?
Linc Brady thought the bidding for the Montana bachelor was a joke. He never wanted to be auctioned, he didn’t do this kind of thing. But Meg Canon was persistent, and boy was she lucky enough to win him on the bidding. It was supposed to be just one night with Meg. One night of lust and need.
And after that fateful evening, they both agreed that they wouldn’t do relationships. Meg went back to Chicago to live her life as a news anchor. Things turned sour when she learned that her jailed stalker posted bail, and on the same day, she discovered that she was pregnant. With Linc. She decided to go back to Montana, tell Linc about their situation and raise her kid. Unfortunately, Linc didn’t want anything to do with the baby. Oh Poor Meg.
I think I’ve said too much already, forgive me. But I wasn’t readily convinced about Linc and Meg’s chemistry. It was kind of a bit rush to me, Linc and his changing moods, Meg and her emotional outbursts. I can understand Meg’s condition though, and I felt her pain and apprehensions about raising a kid without a father, when she herself didn’t have the luxury of having a mother the moment she was born. Linc, well, he’s unlike the other bachelors I read, he was a little too intimidating for my taste.
The bed scenes, however, were hot hot hot! And I liked that the story was fast-paced too. Wasn’t too boring and didn’t dwell too much on one subject alone. A lovely one-night read!
