From a family feud…to a one-night stand ending in heartbreak.

Now will these rivals get a second chance at love?

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?


Can the infamous feud between the Steele’s and the Mikkelson’s actually be mended? Circumstances beyond their control have Broderick and Glenna stepping in to bridge the gap between their siblings as business discussions lead to more when a baby is abandoned in front of them. Whose baby is it? And what will the possibilities bring to these two families? There were a few places that I think could have been built up more to give a more complete love story, but overall this was a fast-paced, fun kick-off to this new series and gave us not only the background of our main characters, but also a good foundation for the siblings stories to come in the future books. I really enjoyed it and look forward to more!

Broderick Steele has lusted after Glenna since back in their college days when they stole a magical weekend away from their life-long family feud. He’s tried his best to steer clear of her temptation as they both went on to become big-wigs in their competitive family businesses in the Alaskan oil industry, but with the shock-wave that has just hit both of their families, close-quarters are unavoidable.

Glenna Mikkelson-Powers has lost a lot in recent years and when the baby of her dreams winds up plopped into her lap, she won’t let anything stand in the way of making sure she’s safe and cared for while her paternity is figured out. With Broderick right by her side, they bond over this adorable tyke and dream of the what-ifs from their past fondness for each other. Can their family feud truly be on it’s way to being over? And does that mean the feelings they have hidden from their minds for all of these years can finally be free to fly?
