Pretending. I’ve always been good at pretending.
Being someone else is easy, and that ability has served me well these last seven months.

This time, I’ve been hired to be the long lost sister of oil tycoon, and down to earth cowboy, Maxwell Cunningham. Recently, Maxwell’s father passed away and in his last Will and Testament he dropped a bomb no one saw coming.

One of the richest men in the world, left forty-nine percent of his company to a sister my client never knew he had. A woman named Mia Saunders.

Maxwell has a year to find this sister or he loses almost half of his empire to a greedy board of investors. Somehow, he found me and here I am.

Sharing in family dinners, pretending to be someone I’m not and fooling bigwigs left and right. Only I’m finding myself falling in love with a family I can never have. One that will hurt to leave.

Stetsons, soul-searching, and sisterly duty all come into a sharp tangle with twists and turns I never saw coming.


In the eight book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is sent to Dallas, Texas. Still on her mission to save her father, she is hired to be the long lost sister of Maxwell Cunningham, one of the newly richest men in America.

My Thoughts

Well, if things were weird before, this next installment is VERY weird.  As the summary tells us, Mia has been hired to play the long lost sister of an oil tycoon, and well, things begin to be stranger and stranger.

The nice thing to the beginning of this next book is that we spend a lot of time in Malibu with Wes.  I think that the way that their relationship is progressing is something quite special.  they’ve opened themselves up to something more, and assuming that they can put aside what it is that Mia actually does for the next few months – well hopefully that means that things will blossom as needed.

On top of all that, the sex is AMAZING between them.  I mean, there’s something to be said about constantly going back to the same character with new moves, and that’s what our author gives us.

Then back to Dallas, we see that Max is going through this process since his father left 49% of the company to this missing sister, and well, Max has secrets of his own about this.  We get the full story throughout this interesting bit, and i think the twist at the end is even more interesting – there’s so much more to the past that anyone knew and that means that there’s so much more to learn about everyone.

Add in the issue of her father being in a home and having his own medical emergencies, well i think that we’re about to see things get even more complicated.  so onto September – can’t wait to see what the fall brings us!
