It was a good read but I disliked the heroine.
Kaycee Sapinoso
This was a good book. Great storyline. Great characters. I totally enjoyed this one. A marriage of convenience was my cup of tea. I always loved books with that story line. And this one was so well done.

Adam King had wanted the land for years. But marrying Gina Torina was the only way to have it. He turned it down. Been there, done that. But when Gina gave him a deal he accepted it. Marry her, give her a baby, divorce her then he can have the land.

Gina Torino had been in love with Adam King for
Queensland sheep station owner Jack Prescott wasn't ready to be a full-time father. He'd do his duty and care for his orphaned nephew, but he had no place in his battered heart for a baby...or for guardian Madison Tyler, the woman hell-bent on disrupting his life.

Yet Jack couldn't ignore the attraction he felt for Madison. Their affair was fast and furious...and soon fraught with regret. The city girl's stay in the Outback was only temporary and Jack had a little boy to care for. How could they
The book wasn't too bad but Gina irritated me a lot. She pushed Adam too much and she lied him although he doesn't know it. And maybe she did what needed to be done to make Adam live and feel again but the way she did it was still annoying.
Originally read June 2011, Re-read August 2013 and rated 3 stars both times.

So...this is a category romance and I should have known what I was getting into buuuut I really didn't like Gina. She was manipulative and naïve and just all round annoying. Why would it be a good idea to trick someone into loving you?

No. No. No. No. No.

Reading this series with my girl, Cho, so on to the next one.
Kaycee's review was good.

This was my first book that I've read by this author. I don't normally read, Desire, books. I don't see the need to have the bedroom scenes, done. All in all, this book was well written, and a good story. I did feel there was some weak point, areas that could have been played out better. But still, a good story, and well written.

I love the Kings of California, so I thought I needed to go back to the beginning and read the first books. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. A marriage of convenience on both sides with the HEA ending I love so much. Maureen Child is an autobuy for me.
The fifth story of No.1 Bestsellers collection.

Bargain for Adam King's baby is proposition from Gina Torino when she learn her father proposed her marriage for exchange the land that Adam wanted.
Brittney Bower
I find it just so sad that his failure in one marriage nearly lead to the death of another marriage to so one who truly loves him for who he is.
This is the first book in Maureen Child's Kings of California series and it is an outstanding read.I loved the hero and heroine in this one.,
