Rafael, the most buff billionaire bachelor in California’s wine country, bears the nickname “Ogre.” He lives alone in a castle on the cliff. He’s shut down, and denies his aching need and unusual desires. Until he’s forced to find a bride.
Fiery Bess owns a popular small-town bakery, but she’s in the red. And she’s good at keeping men at bay. One divorce down, no more to go. When the mysterious, muscular rancher makes a rare trip to town, she can’t resist taking a close look at the strong, scary man.
With no courtship skills and a hard deadline to take a bride or lose his land, Rafael comes on strong. Not the best move with a tough woman who swore off men. But he’s got a big lasso and powerful charm.
This standalone novella is a high-heat short read for adventurous readers 18+. It includes fantasy fulfillment and isn’t intended to be taken too seriously. The author does not condone taking a bride via abduction…. All characters consented to having this much fun. Come along for the friction and sparks as Bess battles disbelief in the ogre prince to get a fairy tale HEA. If you enjoy passionate curvy and alpha love with rope in the right places, grab Recluse Rancher for a rough ride.
