Jonah Grant wants to make his own mark on the world. As a horse breeder starting his business from scratch, he hasn't had the easiest road. But he might have finally caught a break in the form of two beautiful studs for sale that would be perfect for his stock. The problem is Jonah doesn't have the funds, or any means of getting them—until an old friend shows up with a proposition.
Virginia Leeland wants to build something of her own. The daughter of a traditional family, she refuses to stand behind a husband...she wants to stand on her own two feet. Still, she'll take advantage of the money bequeathed to her by her grandmother and use it to buy Jonah's beautiful old barn to host weddings in. The funds, however, are only available upon her marriage, so it's a good thing she's engaged.
But when Virginia catches her no-good, cheating fiancé, well, cheating on her, the marriage plans dry up, along with the funds for her business, and Jonah's plans for expansion. The situation seems hopeless. That is, until Virginia has a champagne-fueled epiphany: she and Jonah can marry. In name only, of course.
But when their agreement becomes more than simply a marriage by name, their passion creates all types of entanglements: the enjoyable kind, as well as the more permanent sort. In the end, Virginia and Jonah will need to decide if they still only care about their business goals…or if the chance at love is what will really make their dreams come true.

The Cowboy’s Contract Marriage was a delightful story it was entertaining and fun with some really well written characters. Leslie North has written a wonderful cowboy and city girl romance. Jonah Grant is trying to get his breeding business up and running, one little problem not enough money, then Virginia Leland steps in with an offer she hope Jonah won’t be able to turn down. This is where the real fun starts. I read this story in one sitting and let me tell you it was highly enjoyable. I absolutely loved and highly recommend this great book. I can’t wait to go read book one in this series and more great book from this author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Sweet with a small amount of heat!
This is book 2 in the Grant Brothers series and it features Jonah and Virginia. This story is a lot sweet with a small amount of heat. All the characters were great. I just didn’t feel like I was invested in the story line at all, nor did I feel attached to any of the characters. Don’t get me wrong, it is a sweet romance but there were no highs and lows. It just kind of ran at one speed throughout the whole book.
