A doctor on a mission...Carolina Rodriguez is a large-animal vet willing to do almost anything to escape South Florida. Interviewed over the Internet by a family connection, she accepts a job sight unseen. At her cousin's wedding, she runs into Matt McLemore.
A rancher short on time...Matt is more than daring, he's Carolina's new boss and floored to discover the sassy woman from the parking lot encounter is the ranch's new vet. Matt's attraction to Carolina is an excruciating temptation. But a roll in the hay may prove too volatile to handle where business is concerned, especially when he needs her help to determine why his cattle keep dying.
Evermore, a cattle ranch that needs saving...The last time a team of vets came to Evermore, the ending was less than stellar. Wade McLemore refuses to allow another modern vet on their land. Matt proposes to introduce Carolina to his family as his girlfriend, giving her the opportunity to work and stay at his ranch without arousing his family's suspicion. After learning she's the last chance to help save his family's cattle reputation, she agrees to act the part of his girlfriend.
A woman begins to see possibilities...Carolina uncovers several alluring sides to this powerful man. Succumbing to Matt's raw magnetism, she submits to his control in the bedroom. In turn, Matt unleashes a red-hot passion between them, unlike anything Carolina has ever experienced.
An attraction that has the force of a nuclear explosion...By the time the lab report comes back, Matt and Carolina have explored every inch of each other. All of a sudden, this fiery affair is more than just a fling. When a past flame threatens to overwhelm their newfound romance, Matt must find a way to stake his claim to Carolina's heart before it's too late.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love a good romance, so I was looking forward to reading this.
Carolina Rodriguez is a wonderful character. I liked her a lot. She is a veterinarian, who has been hired to find out what is killing the cattle at Evermore Ranch. When she meets Matt McLemore sparks fly!
Matt McLemore is an intriguing character. He certainly makes an impression! He's super smart and sexy. I liked him a lot too! The chemistry between these two characters is extremely HOT!
I have literally read hundreds of romance novels over the years (if not a thousand of them). One thing about this genre of books is that I know that they roughly follow a set formula - Boy meets girl, instant attraction, happy ending. However, it is the ability of the author to flesh out the story and make the characters come alive, which this author did perfectly. This story has a few twists that gives a freshness to it. I really enjoyed meeting the McLemore clan. They were a lovely family.
There are some seriously HOT scenes in this story that I must admit I wasn't quite expecting, but they definitely were intense! *Fanning myself!*. The ending felt a bit rushed and could have gone on a little longer, but I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more romances by this author in the future.
Susan Arden has written an exciting and sexy romance that had my heart racing!
Due to some of the scenes being spicier than the romance novels I used to read as a teenager, I do not recommend this book to younger teenage readers. However, I recommend this book if you love spicy HOT romance novels. - Lynn Worton
