Just how far is this wealthy rancher willing to go for his pregnant lover?
Their years apart haven’t diminished Nolan Elliott’s desire for Pepper Manning. Even knowing she’s pregnant with another man’s baby, the rancher can’t stay away. He didn’t claim her when she needed him so long ago and the sting of losing her, and their child, still resonates.
With custody of her unborn baby now in jeopardy, Nolan vows to use his wealth and power to give Pepper everything she wants. That means proposing a marriage…in name only. But is that a vow the rancher stands any chance of keeping?
*Claimed by the Rancher is part of The Rancher’s Heirs series.
Claimed by the Rancher by Jules Bennett is another one of my favorite Harlequin Desire stories. There is so much angst, so much drama and a burning romance that is sure to warm your heart. I was impressed with the plot and the way the author pulled it off. The writing was on point and the characters easy to connect with. I fell in love with Nolan Elliot, the hero, who not only had sex appeal but was realistic with that extra touch of humanness to him which was refreshing. Yeah, he may be arrogant at times but he has his reasons and his redeeming qualities will make you swoon. Meanwhile, the heroine, Pepper Manning is a sweet, tender spirit who is pregnant and facing some trying times and the last person she needs in her life right now is a man. Yet Nolan is insistent and the tug-o-war of emotions she still feels for him is unquestionable and undeniable. Could they rekindle their romance even if she is carrying another man’s baby? Hmm—(grab the book and find out!).
In the end, I found this story to be the perfect escape from every day, real life drama. It was genuine, sexy and unique. I couldn’t get enough of it! Would I recommend to anyone? Yeah, you bet! Go grab a copy guys. You won’t be disappointed. It’s that freaking good.
