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!
A controlling father from the grave and a will that stipulated all of his children work at the Jarrod Manor for a certain amount of time! Actually, I’ve read all of the series books so far and they are extremely amazing. So this is Gavin Jarrods story and the beautiful and sweet Sabrina Taylor’s story.
Sabrina Taylor, I wondered how she survived her childhood without the attention of her parents, Her parents were academics and didn’t have time for her. However, she spent time with her grandparents and they adored her. The love of her grandparents, her vacations spent with them at their wonderful B and;B in Aspen had provided some joy and given Sabrina some peace. She however, had known some heartache. She had married at a young age, lost a baby and then her husband died while serving in the military. Her marriage and the love of her grandparents made her the woman she was today.
Gavin Jarrods family needed a parcel of land to build a high end security based property for high end clients or heads of state of secure their security. His grandfather lost the parcel of land to Henry Caldwell who owned a local B&B and so he set out to make a bargain but what he didn’t realize was that Pops Caldwell had a plan……he wanted his grand daughter to be married and happy because of her past and because he wouldn’t always be around so he made a deal with Gavin to court and marry Sabrina and in return, he would sign the deed over to the Jarrods. What Gavin didn’t count on was that he actually found her attractive, he liked her, was attracted to her and didn’t regret making a pact with her cunning gramps.
Pops and Gavin were both crafty men, manipulated Sabrina and she fell head over heels for Gavin in the end. Working and playing together was incredible to read and how they got to know each other and feel comfortable with each other was beautiful. However, always in the back of my mind was Gavin was using her and when and how would he get caught? Well trust me, he got more than caught, she found out immediately after they got married. Talk about getting caught, they both were because on top of the betrayal, there was an unexpected pregnancy.
Would they find their happiness, would Sabrina forgive Gavin for his betrayal? And what would be the cost to Gavin and the Jarrods? Emilie Rose was a new author for me and she planned their happy ending in a most unusual and amazing way. Because, in the end, for Gavin she was his reason of making him not want to go on the road again, she was his reason for coming home. Wedding His Takeover Target was such a spectacular love story and a wonderful addition to The Jarrods series.
