About this ebook

When revenge turns into a fake engagement...

It was supposed to be a simple case of revenge: get to know King Tech owner and CEO Beckett King, learn his secrets, and ruin his life like he ruined my brother’s. But Beckett King offers me a deal I can't refuse.

Not only does he want me to pretend to be engaged to him, he needs to marry me to get his grandmother off his back. And at the end of the year, we can go our separate ways, only I’ll be a whole lot richer.

I won’t fall for his irresistible good looks, or that aw, shucks country-boy charm he still possesses from growing up on a ranch. I'm smarter than that. I refuse to let this be an opposites attract scenario. He has a lesson to learn and I'm the best one to teach him.

But that’s the tricky thing with revenge. It doesn’t always go as planned.

King's Ransom is a standalone novel in the contemporary western romance Oil Kings series written by an award-winning author.

I love the King family they are so not perfect, even though they have all that money they all have issues. I really enjoyed Beckett and Eva's story both were such strong characters. Eva was easy to like she was the underdog, trying to protect and take care of her brother Adam you could feel the love and loyalty. Beckett is rich with family money and a successful self-made millionaire with his tech company but has his own issues stemming from his childhood after his mother's death. A chance meeting brings these two together, Beckett needs to get married and Eva is his choice for a fake fiancee and wife. The chemistry is there between them and the whole King family sees it. This book is full of steam, drama, secrets, and angst that keeps you turning the pages. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Eva is out for revenge against CEO Beckett King, owner of King Tech. Beckett allegedly wronged her brother and Eva wants to get even. But instead, he offers her a deal she can’t pass up! His grandmother wants him married, and it has to last at least a year, so that he can receive his share of the family money. Will Eva continue seeking her revenge for her brother’s sake? Or will their fake arrangement turn into something real? And what happens if (and you know that means ‘when’) Beckett finds out who she is and her true purpose in being with him? Grab your copy and see how the intrigue sorts out as secrets are revealed and “life happens” to change everything you thought you were getting into.
