It was supposed to be a secret wedding…
Followed by a quiet divorce.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right?
That is until it's shown on national television and then all hell breaks loose
Hunky cowboy Ace Riley wasn't planning on settling down, but his family had other plans for him. The only way to save his hide, his ranch, and his playboy lifestyle, is to discreetly marry his best friend, Jasmine King.
Fiesty city-girl Jasmine was just helping out her friend...that is, until their first kiss stirs up a whole mess of paparazzi trouble, and suddenly discretion is thrown to the wind.
One hot cowboy, one riled up woman...
And they'll be married for a year, like it or not!
Praise for Carolyn Brown's Spikes & Spurs series:
"An old–fashioned love story told well...A delight."—RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
"Tender and passionate love scenes...endearing and quirky characters...an absolutely adorable story."—The Romance Studio
"Plenty of twists, turns, and how cowboys, and a story line that's got to be continued."—Long and Short Reviews
In the fourth Spikes & Spurs contemporary western (after Darn Good Cowboy Christmas), bestseller Brown twists the scenario of a will-fulfilling marriage by having sassy Jasmine King wed cowboy Ace Riley so Ace can save his inherited Texas ranch from his cousin. They'll keep the marriage a secret from everyone but the cousin and divorce after a year when the ranch is Ace's for keeps. But they're the lucky 5,000th couple to marry at the wedding chapel in Las Vegas, and the paparazzi make the most of it. When Jasmine's mother sees the news, she quickly plans a real wedding in Texas, and the newlyweds have to fool their families, friends, and lawyer so Ace can keep the ranch. The cast of characters (including Ace's six brothers and several of Jasmine's friends) is unwieldy, and new readers will keep looking back to see who is who, though series readers will welcome familiar faces.
