Liam Whitmore III is floored by the surprise stipulation in his father's will—provide an heir within one year or he'll lose the controlling portion of Whitmore Incorporated to his cousin Spencer. The corporation is Liam's life. He'll do anything to keep his cousin's hands off of it, including finding a woman who'll bear his child. Though finding the right woman seems an impossible task since he doesn't have room in his life for anything except running the company. He doesn't want a wife, just an heir.
Abby Haden's family is about to lose their ranch, the only life her ailing father and brother have ever known. She feels helpless and is desperate to help. When the most coveted bachelor in Austin, Liam Whitmore III, also known as the Takeover Tyrant, offers to pay her to have his child it seems too incredible to be true. She's all but given up hope of ever having a baby. Not only will her dream of being a mother come true, but she can also save the family ranch.
It was just supposed to be a business deal, but Abby and Liam find it hard to keep their hearts out of what it takes to make a baby. Even as they sort out their feelings, others have their eye on Whitmore Incorporated. Liam and Abby will soon discover how far they'll go to make sure Abby never produces that heir.

5 Beautiful Stars
I've read Olivia Starke before and thought she was a good author so I was excited to read this book. But I have to admit, this book BLEW ME AWAY. I loved every single second of every page. It was great.
Liam is a business man. Work is his life. Until his father passes and leaves the business to his cousin, unless Liam can produce an heir within a year. Liam puts together a plan to hire someone to have a baby for him, giving him an heir and allowing him to keep the company.
Abby has always wanted to be a mother, but it's looking like that won't happen before she gets too old. She's a nurse for elderly. Her favorite patients son approaches her with a ludicrous idea, but if she goes through with it, she would have a baby and money to help out her family.
The development of the characters from start to finish was just beautiful. Liam's growth is so perfectly paced as well as Abby's. Not to mention there are a few twists and turns along the way to keep the pages turning outside of their relationship.
Olivia Starke calls the Ozarks home. One of the most beautiful areas in the country, she loves hiking trails with her dogs, kayaking on the numerous waterways, and enjoying southern Missouri's fresh air and sunshine.
She's also 'Mom' to four dogs, a growing number of kitties that show up at her door, and four VERY spoiled horses that do little to earn their keep. Not that she'd ever hold that against them.
She's a HUGE fangirl of Doctor Who and to a lesser extent Supernatural, and has a pretty interesting love triangle (or square?) going on in her head between the Doctor and the Winchesters.
