I just saw this advertized in the back of a book I was reading and I'm sure going to want to read this family saga.

Dynasties: The Jarrods (Silhouette Desire)

Book One: Claiming Her Billion-Dollar Birthright (July)

Image

Book Description:

Claiming Her Billion-Dollar Birthright
by Maureen Child

"Erica Prentice has set out to claim her billionaire-dollar inheritance and the man she loves."


Quote:
The revelation turned Erica Prentice's world upside down—by birth, she belonged to a wealthy Colorado dynasty and her real father had left her a fortune. And the Jarrod family attorney, Christian Hanford, was there to show her the ropes. As Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome escorted her around Aspen, Erica was in for a second shock—her fiery attraction to the strictly off-limits attorney. Fraternizing with the Jarrod heiress could get Christian fired.

Which would she choose: duty to her family dynasty…or desire for a dynamic bachelor?

Marilyn, is this the first of a new series for Maureen Child? I just got around to reading all of her Kings of California books, and those were great.

I wish she would do more series, like the Marconi and Candellano books. I loved those!!

I just finished reading the King books but I thought she was writing more about the rest of the King cousins. I will have to get this book also.

It's a brand new series, Book coming out in July. I loved her King's and I'm planning on getting the older books in the series.

OOPS......I made a mistake when I assumed it was strictly a Maureen Child's series. I emailed her and asked her about a behind the "series" question and here's what she said about the series
Quote:
is all about the Jarrods...this GREAT family are in Aspen and they have this amazing Manor and resort.. and so many great writers and so many fabulous stories!!"

Quote:
It had been forty-nine days—and nights—since Guy Jarrod last touched Avery Lancaster. Yes, the successful businessman had believed the rumors of her gold-digging ways. But she was an itch he needed to scratch. And being forced to work with her again during Aspen's Food and Wine Gala meant she was right within his reach. Once he finally had his fill, he would send her on her way…out of his life for good.

But what if the rumors were false? Had he made a mistress out of the woman who should have been his wife?

Quote:
Melissa Jarrod treasured her secret no-strings affair with rich rancher Shane McDermott. Then a pregnancy test rocked the Aspen heiress's world. An out-of-wedlock baby would spook conservative investors in her family's luxury resort business just as she and her siblings were settling in to run Jarrod Ridge. But Shane was a man of honor— curbing his playboy ways and proposing came naturally.

Make no mistake, the bride was beautiful, but for Shane this was strictly a marriage of convenience. Melissa, on the other hand, wouldn't settle for anything less than love—for her and her child.

No one quit on Blake Jarrod! So when his devoted assistant suddenly turned in her resignation, the hotelier wanted answers. Though, Samantha Thompson wasn't talking. Turning her two-weeks' notice into four, Blake gave himself one month to seduce the truth from her.

Quote:
Nothing could stop Aspen resort heir Gavin Jarrod's land grab. Not even the ornery owner's insistence that Gavin marry his granddaughter to seal the deal. Gavin was up to the challenge of wedding perfect stranger Sabrina Taylor, since this beautiful stranger was perfect. After a whirlwind seduction, he had her wed and bedded…to their mutual satisfaction.

But what was this new groom to do once his bride announced she was pregnant with his child? It was back to the bargaining table—because she wanted a real father for her baby or this merger was off!

Quote:
This wasn't the type of Christmas present he'd been expecting. Trevor Jarrod—a daddy? Yet the enticing woman seated in his office claimed the Aspen businessman was the father of her baby nephew. Quick as he could say paternity test, Trevor discovered she was telling the truth. But just what did this revelation mean? The confirmed bachelor knew nothing about being a parent. And Haylie Smith wasn't about to hand off the precious infant to a complete stranger.

If Trevor really wanted to claim his unexpected heir, he had an important choice—head to court…or head to the altar!

Well, I'm sad, the series is over and it was great to read. In the process I found three new authors to add to my auto-buy!

I'm sorry - but this has to be one of the worst covers ever! The woman looks like she is dying, hanging on for dear life or something. :shock:
