My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lukas needs to find a wife to honor his fathers wishes, when his brother comes to his aid and suggest Dale, a worker at the club, as someone his father would like he takes the offering wanting to meet her. Dale isn’t sure what it is about Lukas but the attraction is immediate but when he starts talking about marriage and children, she thinks he is crazy.

Lukas had always been told by his father when he meets the one he would know it and Dale is it. Now he has to convince the outspoken woman he is playing for keeps.

I have read almost the whole series and this one is up there on my favorite list. Lukas was different then I expected and the banter is just what you want with a story like this. I loved this, absolutely an instant favorite and I definitely will be rereading this again and again
