Catherine Mann continues the Alaska Oil Barons series with the Double Deal. This series is so much fun. I love watching the two families meld and how each book just naturally builds on the other. Naomi and Royce are a fun couple and I look forward to seeing more of them as the series unfolds. The focus on the secondary characters and a variety of POV, give this book a whole different feel. Those that are still gun-shy about reading category romance should get over it and pick up this series, tho ...more
