Overview

Staff Sergeant Austin Hall has a brilliant record in the Special Forces—except for one disastrous decision that cost his best friend’s life. Now he’s heading home to Chance Creek, Montana, where he’d like to spend the rest of his days in the obscurity of his family’s ranch. Too bad Great Aunt Heloise won’t hand the ranch over unless all four of the Hall brothers marry and one of them produces an heir within the year. Austin is too broken to marry for love, so he places an online ad for a fake wife. What could possibly go wrong?


Ella needs to leave Hollywood—fast. It’s bad enough another actress stole her fiancé—on national television. Now she’s ruined her comeback by decking her ex on a morning talk show. Pursued by paparazzi, Ella needs a new life, a new name and someplace to hide. When she reads Austin’s ad for a stand-in wife, she knows she can act this part perfectly. To the rest of the residents of Chance Creek, they’ll be a happily married couple. In private, they’ll just be roommates. In a year when she’d old news and the Hall brothers secure the ranch, she and Austin will quietly divorce and she’ll go on her way.


Or will she?


Austin’s already finding it hard to remember his promise never to love again. Ella’s finding it hard to keep her hands to herself. But when they’re asked make a back-up baby, Ella realizes she may have stepped into a lifetime role.


Can this pretend marriage go the distance?

Excellent story line. Loved the surprise about Richard's parentage; was a complete surprise. Love a happy ending and Cora Seton delivered.

This one hits home.  Being a soldier wife I know exactly what Austin and Ella  are facing,  PTSD, even though the doesn't  address it as such.   According to terms Aunt Heloise  has laid down to get the ranch back, Austin like Mason has concocted  his own e-mail bride order. He is running away from his life and his bride is running toward hers.  Ella needs to hide and  believes Austin's claim of no questions asked. But things are never what they seem  as the pair soon find out.

This is the second one in the series I have read - read it in one day!!!  I can't believe it, but it was better than the first one.  This writer is awesome and I highly recommend her books, especially this series!!  The characters are so real and I got into them immediately.

## FABULOUS. I read this book immediately after reading book #1 of the series. In my review of that book, I wished for some sort of conflict. Well, let's just say my wish was granted. Wow. There was plenty of conflict in this book. Even though Ella and Austin's chemistry was hot, he really didn't treat her very well. Oh yeah, I wanted to kick his ass at one point. Or hers for staying and putting up with him. But once again Cora handled it perfectly so the reader still falls in love with this couple. And I love that the author gave us such a complete ending. That's a reward always appreciated. Apprx. 260 pages

Amazing follow up to the first in the series.  I love how Austin and Ella come together and overcome their pasts to have a future.  A very touching story and I can't wait to read more about Zane and Colt!!!  Love the Hall brothers!

This was a warm and wonderful story. The email banter between the characters was so witty and sweet. One quibble I would have is Mason being responsible for the debts of his deadbeat uncle. The people who kept giving him credit were responsible for their own stupidity. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

What the first book lacked this book made up for and more.  It left me dying for book 3.  Austin and Ella's story is hot and yummy.  They are great together.  I'm ready for Zane and Colt's stories now. Thank you Cora Seton and NetGalley for ARC.

I absolutely love this book! Ella is an actress who has been let down in a big way by everyone that she thought cared about her. She needs to run away and run away fast! She sees an add online sent to her as a joke and feels less like laughing and more like responding to an offer she cant refuse.Then steps in sexy but slightly tarnished Austin he needs a wife fast so that he can fulfill his promise to his brothers so they can receive their inheritance. This book was great it had many ups and downs and when you thought you knew how it was going to end it swings another direction and then BAM swings another direction building the anticipation. Good book cant wait for the next one in the series

This is the first book that I have read by Cora Seton, but I will definitely be adding more of her books to my TBR list. I really liked Ella from the very beginning and hated all that she had to endure being an actress. She lost her fiancé and career all at the same time, but in the end she gained a husband and the family that she had always wanted. Now Austin… That was a different story. Even though we knew all of the feelings that he was holding in about his time serving in the Special Forces and the death of Donavan that he blames himself for. They were many times in the book that I would have like to slap him, but once he faced his demons and Donavan’s parents he realized that he didn’t want to lose Ella and his chance to have a family. I can’t wait to read more about these brothers and will be definitely be going back and reading Mason and Regan’s story.

Oh my! There is nothing better to me that an ex-soldier who comes from a ranching family and is sexy to boot!  I had not heard of the series before but this author is definitely on my TBR list now. Austin is our hero, who with his brothers, have inherited the family ranch and they all have one year to marry and produce a child or they lose it all. Ella is our heroine, who is a rising actress in Hollywood but is betrayed by her manager and her fiancee and surprisingly agrees to marry Austin. What evolves is a classic love story with a HEA that is fabulous until the end. Well worth reading.
