WHEN A COWBOY MEETS AN HEIRESS... Cash Hardeman thought he'd have all the time in the world to find the right woman...until he discovered that his gold digging step-grandmother will inherit the family ranch if he's not married by his 30th birthday. With the deadline just around the corner and no prospects in sight, Cash knows it's only a matter of time before he loses everything. But when Boston beauty Annelise blows into his life, Cash can't help but wonder if she's what he's been looking for all along. Giving her bodyguards and the paparazzi the slip, heiress Annelise Montjoy has come to Maverick Junction on a life-or-death mission. But living incognito in the small Texas town is nothing like she expected, and she's finding it difficult to keep her identity a secret--especially with a rough and tumble cowboy like Cash tempting her. It's not long before Annelise starts to wonder if she's finally found the man who can love her for herself rather than her money. But will Annelise's secrets catch up with her before she and Cash can ride off into the Texas sunset?
Take a rich girl going incognito, a handsome rancher struggling with the mess his grandfather left behind, and a small Texas town with just enough quirky characters, and you have the solid-if unsurprising-first title in Austin's new "Maverick Junction" series. Annelise Montjoy has come to Maverick Junction on a mission. Her beloved grandfather is ill, and Annelise hopes to find the one person who can help him. Her hopes of remaining unnoticed are immediately thwarted by Cash Hardeman. Though Cash is dealing with family problems of his own, he's certainly willing to be distracted for a while by the beautiful Annelise. The chemistry between them is immediate, but their timing is off. The outside world is closing in, and the pair must work to reach their happy ending. Verdict Though this small Texas town, with its charming inhabitants, can only exist within the pages of a book, fans of Robyn Carr's "Virgin River" series will snap up this title.-Jane Jorgenson, Madison P.L., WI (c) Copyright 2012.
