The rule: Get married and have a baby.

When Grandpa Stinson dies, he expects nothing more than to keep his grandsons together, running the family's multibillion-dollar business. But he's got just one unfaltering rule: they have to get married and have a baby first. The brothers disagree...wholeheartedly.

But it's set in stone. Follow the rule or you're the one grandson out of luck...

Stubborn, rugged, but oh-so-sexy, Roark Stinson, the oldest brother, refuses to give in to his grandfather's manipulations. After all, women are the root of all evil, and he's never witnessed a relationship that actually works. Then it hits him; it doesn't have to work.

Roark just needs a warm body to agree to the terms...

Zoe Morgan never wanted to be anyone's "means to an end," especially not Roark Stinson's. But his proposal is one she's in no position to refuse--can't refuse. When the stakes are this high, a warm body might just be exactly what she needs.

Maybe--just maybe--Grandpa Stinson knew exactly what he was doing...
A really fun take on the "must marry to inherit" theme. Three bachelor brothers stand to lose everything if they don't marry within a year. But wait! There's more! They can't just marry - they also have to have a kid. Talk about a crazy timeline! All in one year!! None of them take the news very well, I mean, who would? And as they all try to come up with some hair-brained scheme to  meet the terms - Roark meets Zoe.

Meets might not be the best way to describe their introduction. It was quite funny and a story they can tell their friends and family for years. It will never grow old. Roark is quite the sweetheart once you dig through all the crap in the way of getting to his heart.

This story is really all about the relationship. There is no huge outside suspense or drama. It's all about the people and learning to open up and let someone else in. To take that chance that just maybe you found your happily ever after in the place you least expected.

I can't wait to see what's in store for our next brother.
