Overview

Caleb didn't know that one night of bliss last spring with small town beauty Maya Brand had resulted in a pregnancy, until the blackmail attempt arrived on his desk in an unmarked envelope, complete with photos of Maya with a belly out to there.

When he learns the truth, Caleb rushes back to Big Falls, determined to make it right despite what the scandal will do to his high profile career-the family legacy he had never truly wanted.

All he wants is Maya, and their child.

But can a girl whose father abandoned and betrayed her, ever truly believe in the goodness of a man who left town the morning after their one night stand? How can he convince her that he hasn't stopped thinking about her since then, much less, do so with the whole world watching? He has to prove himself to a woman he's not even sure he's worthy of. But he has no idea how.

The Oklahoma All-Girl Brands is a six-book, small town, contemporary romance series with shades of HOPE FLOATS and YOU'VE GOT MAIL. Spin off of the bestselling Texas Brand Series.

    Loved it

    I totally enjoyed this book and the characters definitely act like a family going through the trauma of a sister/daughter getting pregnant and not knowing who the father is. Fast read, exceptional characters, great story line...once you get to know the people in the book, you will want to learn more about them. Maya and Caleb are exceptional in their roles. Although Caleb's father is a curmudgeon in the beginning, he ends up being a credible character. Maggie Shayne is an exceptional author, in all her genres.

    I loved this book with all it's twists and turns and the way the author pulled it all together so the reader could easily keep track of what was going on. OK, it's surprising to have Maya be a virgin at 29 and it's even more surprising how she decided to take care of that problem! The character development was excellent. Both main characters had issues. Maya didn't want to love someone in case they were not there for her when she needed them, like her father. Caleb was tired of people wanting to be with him because of his money and status when he just wanted to be liked for himself. This made him not trust anyone. All the characters in this book were great. The sisters were so different from each other and had their quirks that made them so much fun.

    I liked the way the author showed that experiences in our childhoods affect us later in life, even if we don't realize it. The twist to this billionaire story was great with Caleb being a nice guy who doesn't want the attention his money and family bring.

    This book was so good that I didn't want to put it down but when I did, I kept thinking about it all day!

    Super

    Such an excellent and fun book to read. Enjoyed this first book in the Brand family series. I have always enjoyed Maggie Shaynes's stories. She brings out all the character's personalities to win your heart in the stories. I loved this book and will definately read all the sequels of the Brand ladies.

    Wow! What a wonderful romance and I got it for free which is an added bonus. Maya is the oldest of 5 sisters in a town where her families reputation is not that great. She struggles with the view everyone has of her and the family so she works very hard to be respectable but as her 29th birthday approaches she starts to feel it will never work. So when a handsome strangers strolls into her families bar, she boldly follows her instincts and has the night of her life. What she doesn't expect is the surprise that will arrive 9 months later. Caleb is running from his family obligations and ends up at the Brands bar crossing paths with Maya. She is so refreshing to him, she doesn't know his family name and is just genuinely attracted to him so her pursues this woman though he lies about who he really is. Then he is called away without saying goodbye. Several months later a photo appears in his mailbox sending him back to Big Falls to find out what is going on. Will Maya forgive him for lying to her and then disappearing? Will Caleb follow his heart? Or will family obligation win? Truly a fabulous romance that is a great escape for the holidays.

    Very light romantic novel with predictable ending but worth reading for pure escapism. Would not mind reading others in the series.

    Great story. Characters made me laugh some much that I would stop and read the funny part to my husband. Who would just pat me on the head and I would turn back to where I left off with a big smile on my face. So awesome.

    Great Cinderella love story

    It's a dream for most girls, find a your soul mate and then marry him. Maggie Shayne does an exceptional job in bringing this story to life.

    Maya's family has had to endure small town gossip and she works hard to prove she is an upstanding citizen to get the approval of the women in the small town. On a rainy night walks in Caleb who is a stranger in the small town of Big Falls, OK. Needless to say Caleb is the handsome prince and Maya is Cinderella. Both Caleb and Maya have to overcome family pasts in order to make the relationship work.

    This is a quick read. The story and characters make you feel apart of it. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
