Meet Rory and Alfie - the third of three hot couples from Kris Pearson’s New Zealand Heartlands Series.
Shy Kiwi heiress Alfrieda Hamlin is reduced to shocked silence when her hateful grandfather announces she’s to marry within a month – to a man she’s never met. Then she yells blue murder because there’s no way she’ll give her body to a stranger, or have her expected freedom and inheritance stolen away.
Exiled from his family for half his life, hard-living cowboy Rory Morrissey has been offered a deal: quit Texas, return to his birthplace, and embark on the delicate mission of convincing Alfie to take him as her husband. This will earn him a fresh start, respectability, and the chance of one hell of a farm.
Rory has murder in his background and nothing to lose by accepting the challenge. The girl could be bearable. Perhaps they can outwit the old man and split things amicably? Or maybe hell will freeze over first…
Alfie might be shy but she’s no pushover. When she learns about the succession deal being hatched between her autocratic grandfather and the handsome Texan stud, she rebels. With only one month to outwit the scheming duo, she throws caution to the wind and snuggles up to the man she’s been ordered to marry. After all, she needs to know her enemy if she expects to beat him at his own game.
Warning: Contains one hunky cowboy determined to ride down his heiress, hog-tie her, and bundle her into his bed.

About the Author
Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - HARD TO REGRET - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both. If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others. Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand. Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories. Four books are now available in Spanish.

Enjoyed the book until the end. There it raced. Was not really able to understand her change of heart. Seemed too pat. To go from believing he would deliberately hurt her to full trust seemed too fast. Also, she seemed wishy washy to commit, then was fine with being steam rollered.
Good read. Good writing. Will gladly read more by this author.
The childish petulant behavior in the early part of the book was tiresome
An old fashioned love story of arranged marriage but set in contemporary times finds Sheltered Alfie meeting her intended over dinner when her grandfather makes the proclamation. Rory has been away from New Zealand half his life and finds Alfie more than he had hoped for and is willing to work his way into her heart. This story finds Alfie coming into her own and both Alfie and Rory finding what they have been missing in their lives. Thank you to the Author for the copy of this book to read – won it through a Facebook release party. I would definitely read other books by this author.
