Book 4, Indigo Island
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Handsome tycoon James Putnam is acting CEO of his family’s logging company, Putnam Industries. He needs to land a big deal to prove to the board he’s capable of leading the company. If not, his father’s right-hand-man is more than willing to fill the role. James hurries to Indigo Island alone, certain he has what it takes to win the bid, earn the CEO title and save the island from uncontrolled logging.
Aubrey Templeton is a gorgeous magazine reporter facing a mountain of debt after her parents’ tragic deaths. The only asset she has to leverage is 2,500 acres of old growth forest on Indigo Island. She hires Dirk Cooley, a forester, to create a forest management plan for her family’s land and to solicit multiple logger bids to lease the land. Aubrey insists James Putnam’s company is included since she still hasn’t forgotten the one night of incredible sex they shared over a year ago, and she’s sure he’ll be eager for a repeat performance.
What Aubrey doesn’t know is that James is a changed man, who is determined to prove he didn’t get his job as a birth right. He is determined to never again mix business with pleasure, although keeping Aubrey at arms length during their negotiations tests James’ discipline and will power, especially as he finds himself in the role of tour guide for the sexy landowner and later as her protector when an unscrupulous forester targets them both in a revenge plot hatched to destroy the Putnam family.
love against the tide
Aubrey's lost just about everything and needs to turn her world around to survive. After being betrayed by an employee, she is leery of James's bid and offer to help. But slowly, he builds her trust, and in that trust, they find love. A delightful read.
**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion**
Audrey and James story is about new beginnings and fresh starts!! Overcoming the odds! Another excellent story by Kaira Rouda!!
Return to Indigo Island
I was so excited to read this book, and it did not disappoint me. Love returning to Indigo Island with the Putnam family. This is a quick read, involving James Putnam and Aubrey Templeton. Aubrey is a strong person and knows what she wants, and will not be persuaded in her choices. James and Aubrey had a one night stand a year ago, which James does not remember. James now is trying to do the right thing, not mixing pleasure with business, but can it maintain between him and Aubrey.
This is the fourth book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. Fair warning you will want to catch up with the rest of Putnam family. I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
