Publisher Description

To Maxwell Cooper's great pleasure, his horses of quality Quarab stock have been well received by American buyers. His goal of selling to the Arab royal family would give his breeding business international credibility and prove that he wasn't the bad apple everyone had assumed. After missing his opportunity at auction two years in a row, he's been invited to back to back VIP sales and word on the street is that the royal family is going to be in attendance. And nothing will stop him from keeping his eye on the prize this time.

Lena Fudge had been traveling the circuit as a newbie horse trader, but found herself fired after she passed along a hot tip while having hot sex with Maxwell Cooper. Now disgraced, she finds herself back in her family's home in the middle of nowhere horse country. Learning she's pregnant adds insult to injury, and despite her best efforts she's fulfilling her family's curse of living at home. She knows she has to tell Maxwell about the baby, but she refuses to ask for his help till she has her ducks in a row. That is until she runs into Maxwell at the auction stables after being rejected from a last ditch attempt to get her old job back.

Maxwell has been dreaming of Lena since their night of passion four months ago. One look at her, and being pretty sure he was the one to pop her cherry, he realizes he's the father. But Maxwell knows Lena's pride would not allow him to take care of her, so he asks her to work with him as a horse trader. It's not charity. As it turns out, Lena is the full package. She's a dream in the stables, amazing with buyers, and not adverse to a roll in the hay. But when things begin to go deeper than just a sale or sex, they'll find them find themselves racing toward a bidding war that will either have them living a life of love or losing it all.

This is book 2 in The Brothers of Cooper Ranch and it features Maxwell and Lena. The story picks up four months after their one night stand and she’s pregnant. He tries so hard when it comes to getting her to live with him and work with him. There’s an attraction between them that they didn’t explore four months ago for whatever reason and it’s burning like a wildfire now. There is a HUGE turning point that leaves you questioning Maxwell in a BIG way. WHAT WAS HE THINKING! I wish there were more interaction with all the buyers, especially the Irish. I would have liked more information on his business and the ranch hands.

Just like in book one, the story needed a little more filler story. We need to know what happens between the main points of the story. The story line and the characters were great. Looking forward to the next book.

Really enjoyed the way Maxwell was able to realize that he could be a great partner when he found out Lena is pregnant, he stepped in and did what he could to show her he is there for her and the baby. Also, how well Lena was able to help him with his ranch. Took him a while to understand her methods and in the end, she helped him realize he didn’t have to do everything on his own. They were able to make the sale in the end to the right people.

The Rancher’s Unexpected Baby

This story is about Lena and Maxwell and both are stubborn. This is the second book in this series and had me wanting to scream at the characters for their foolishness. Will Lena and Maxwell put love and family first or will their pride get in the way?
