Overview

First published as a short story in Debbie Macomber's Family Affair

In Darlene Panzera's debut full-length romance, an entire town places a bet on just whom pretty Jenny O'Brien will marry . . . and her choice surprises them all!

Marry her and win

When tall, handsome out-of-towner Nick Chandler first sets eyes on Jenny O'Brien, she's storming into the Bets & Burgers Café, wielding a broom and threatening the safety of every man in sight. Hey, he figures, she's got the right to be annoyed—the whole town seems to be laying bets on whom Jenny will marry.

Nick's annoyed as well. He didn't think he'd have to propose to romance the land away from her, but to save his sister and his ill-fated business, he jumps into the fray and bets $10,000 that Jenny will marry him.

Now the only thing stopping him from seizing her land . . . may be his own heart.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Jenny O'Brien left veterinary school when money got tight for her widowed father, a ranch owner in Pine, WA. To complicate matters, on her wedding day, Jenny finds her fiancé in bed with another woman. Jenny is now distrustful of men. Nick Chandler, a New York City businessman with a ranching background, comes to Pine to woo Jenny in hopes of acquiring her valuable land to use as a resort. Jenny fights to keep up her front as a woman who doesn't need a man. VERDICT Originally published as "The Bet," a novella included in Debbie Macomber's Family Affairs (2012), this debut, full-length romance now offers readers an appealing high drama involving equestrianism, misgivings, arson, foreclosure, and a sexy stranger. [Xpress Reviews, 12/7/12.]—Joyce Sparrow, Kenneth City, FL

    This book is an awesome read! I love the dynamic between Nick and Jenny. I started reading the book thinking I would just read for a bit, but that didn’t happen. I couldn’t put it down! I read the short story previously when it was published in Debbie Macomber’s book, and am so glad Avon published this in full length! Can’t wait to read more from Ms. Panzera!!!

The storyline was fun and romantic in a way that I've not seen before.This new author is very talented in her description of people, places and situations.

    read this absolutely, wonderful book this past weekend. It is a "feel-good" novel by a new author on the scene. I thoroughly enjoyed how the book played thru. The writing was fresh. Lately, a large amount of books I have read, have the odd habit of repeating themselves over and over as though the reader is not intelligent enough to remember what the storyline is. This book was well researched, it seemed, in the world of ranch ownership and horses and even though the story of love is as old as days-this novel put a new and enjoyable spin on it. Thank you, Darlene Panzera, for a new twist on an age old story-Love.

    I loved this book. This fomance novel was an easy read and suitable for all "audiences". The lack of foul language was refreshing, and it had a great story line.
