Arrogant, infuriating, insufferable…

And the sexiest man she’s ever met.

Wren Maxfield hates Creed Cooper, but now she’s working with the wealthy rancher over the holidays! Those strong feelings hide undeniable chemistry…and one wild night results in pregnancy. Now Creed vows to claim his heir. That means proposing a marriage in name only. But as desire takes over, is that a deal they can keep?

Includes Rancher’s Wild Secret, a bonus story!

Emerson Maxfield is a sheltered beauty who never steps out of line. Now she must marry her family’s enemy before desire spells downfall for them all…


I’ve really enjoyed the few Maisey Yates’ books featuring the fictional Gold Valley area that I’ve read, and Claiming the Rancher’s Heir was another fun, sexy, enemies-turned-lovers romp within the vineyards.

Wren Maxfield and Creed Cooper work for their families competing vineyards with completely different styles and customer bases, and they’ve never gotten along. But under that animosity is an attraction that they’ve both stuffed down, and when they have to work together on an event that will benefit both of their wineries, a moment of reckless, passion-filled abandon has unintended consequences.

With Wren now pregnant and Creed insisting that they get married, Claiming the Rancher’s Heir gets passionate, a bit angsty as both Wren and Creed must deal with their past hurts and drama to come together for the good of their baby, and quite enjoyable as they bicker their way towards love–kicking and screaming the entire way.




I give Claiming the Rancher’s Heir a four out of five. I loved the Gold Valley setting and how familiar characters pop in from other books, but you needn’t have read them to be able to enjoy this book. The baby is not a secret to their families, and that is so refreshing. Their baby is not treated as a problem; it was just something to bring these two characters together finally and I loved that. This was a quick, enjoyable read, and I look forward to reading more in this series.
