A marriage of convenience shows a determined rancher and a stubborn woman what it means to be branded.
Part of the Leather and Lace series
When a clause in his grandfather’s will forces Rafe Sinclair to marry or else lose his ranch, he sets his sights on what he thinks is a safe choice—his neighbor Emma Radcliff.
Emma has never wanted anything other than to work her family’s horse ranch. But when her father forces her to marry Rafe, she does everything in her power to make the handsome rancher regret his choice of brides.
They say oil and water don’t mix, but in Emma’s and Rafe’s case, it does—and the result is fire. When Emma refuses to consummate the marriage, Rafe sets out to prove that marriage him is the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

Chapter OneEmma sighed and pressed her forehead against Mariposa's withers. Exhaustion crept through her like a thief, stealing her energy and her will. It had been an incredibly long day and it was bound to be an even longer night.
She'd sleep in her new husband's house tonight. The thought of being in close proximity to Rafe in just her nightgown gave her the chills. She dared not think about whether the chills were excitement or dread. After making sure all her horses had food and water, she finally left the barn.
Rafe had disappeared at least half an hour earlier. She'd expected him to hover and try to take over her chores. Instead, he'd left her alone, exactly what she needed. Rowdy knew better than to bother her. He'd headed straight for the bunkhouse and a whiskey.
Her new husband was turning out to be a different man than she thought he was, either that or he was really good at pretending to be someone else. It didn't matter one way or the other. Until she was good and ready, if ever, Emma wouldn't trust any man, much less Rafe.
She trudged to the house with a heavy heart and a dose of homesickness. Emma had spent her entire life on her family's ranch. In fact, she'd never slept anywhere else or woken up anywhere else. Everything about this whole marriage thing was turning every aspect of her life sideways.
By the time she reached the house, Emma had built up a head of steam laced with resentment. She opened the kitchen door, ready to give Rafe a piece of her mind. The room was empty of people, but holy hell, he'd been there for sure.

Liked the premise and plotlines with great chemistry between the leads...however it could've used a lot more closure and definately more than one sex scene. the ending was abrupt and left you wanting more. the epilogue was a joke. still not bad but wish I hadn't bothered with this one.

The editing was horrible. I really hope the author has better luck with future published ebooks.
