Broderick Steele is an oil tycoon living in Alaska. He's
tried to steer clear of entanglements ever since the one
that got away, got away. But when his father springs a
surprise on him and a baby appears at his doorstep he needs
help in untangling THE BABY CLAIM.
Glenna Mikkelson-Powers has never forgotten the weekend with
Broderick Steele, but family ties run deep, and he was the
enemy. She moved on, married, and is now widowed but she is
faced with many decisions and one of them is to acknowledge
what she feels for Broderick is real and not let the past
Families, Feuds, oil barons, and babies. What more could you
ask for? It can all be found in THE BABY CLAIM. The pace is
fast, nothing drags, and Ms. Mann's vivid description of
Alaska makes you feel you are there. I have been a fan of
author Catherine Mann for a number of years and was thrilled
to see this new storyline from her. THE BABY CLAIM is the
first book of the Alaskan Oil Barons series and destined to
be a winner.
Glenna and Broderick have a past that neither denies, but
the families had been rivals for years, and it was something
that neither could step away from. Now they are trying to
blend their families due to their parents (Jack Steele and
Jeannie Mikkelson) unexpected involvement. Glenna and
Broderick are strong-willed, but they are also smart enough
to try to set aside the animosity and doubly so for the sake
of this baby that has found her way into their lives. Both
of them are more than willing to make the little girl a part
of their lives. I can't go into too many details on the
parentage of this infant as that would be a big spoiler.
The baby part of the book is an amazing storyline, but I
found getting to know all of the family members of the
Mikkelsons and Steeles really added depth. They are
realistic with everyday problems that we get to watch them
work through the troubles they can and deal with the things
they can't fix.
If you love a strong, sexy hero and equally strong sexy
heroine, a second chance, strong family ties, sweet and
steamy romance and a nice touch of mystery, then THE BABY
CLAIM is what you want.
From a family feud…to a one-night stand ending in
Now will these rivals get a second chance
Rugged oil tycoon Broderick has
avoided temptation for years. But an abandoned baby forces
him back into his ex-lover’s world. He needs
Glenna. For the child, for himself…for untangling the ties
that bind their families. For discovering who the baby’s
father really is. But will their passion survive the truth?
Since I live in Alaska, it's hard for me to read fiction based in Alaska. This trope -oil tycoon- is outdated in Alaska now-major oil companies are majority owners. I'm sure the story will be good, otherwise. (Kathleen Bylsma 12:36pm March 6)
