Here's the story in a nut shell. Clay Martin, a Texas Ranger, needs money to fix up his ranch. He makes a deal with Ford Carson, where he agrees to marry his headstrong daughter (Fiona)
for a sizable amount of money. Headstrong is not the word I would use to describe this spoiled brat. They end up marrying and as with any novel they fall in love in the end.
Now I really loved Clay Martin. Being a homicide detective myself I really appreciated how the author described how personal his murder cases were to him. Especially when he told his selfish new wife, Fiona, to pound sand when she whinned about him being late for their reception party because god forbid he was interrogating a sexual preditor that had been arrested.
The real problem I had with the book was Fiona. It was hard for me to believe that she had been so pampered in her life that she didn't even know how to make a bed. She threw tantrums, acted like a 7 year old and even went so far as getting herself arrested. It was very hard for me to believe, even for a jaded detective like myself, that there could be someone like this in existence. She did get better toward the end but by then I really didn't like her character that much.
The author did write an excellent male character who was strong, intelligent, had a sense of humor, and who really seemed to care. I just wish that the lead female character had been better. Fiona is the reason for 3 stars but Clay is the reason I will read the book again. He is the perfect hero.

I usually like the arranged/fake marriage storyline in romance novels but both lead characters have to be someone I like. In this book, Fiona was such a spoiled brat witch that she had no redeeming qualities except her looks. I was unable to buy that Clay would fall in love with her so quickly and easily before she started making her transformation into a human being. There is a subplot that flows through all the Lone Star Country Club books about a kidnapping and mob activity that makes this worth reading if you are following the series, otherwise, don't bother.

This book has it all. Clay was a troubled teen who went to the service only to return as a Texas ranger to run the family ranch. He then marries a rich virgin. Gotta love cowboy in need who gets HEA in the end
