From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Mann comes a new saga, the Alaskan Oil Barons


The Baby Claim, Harlequin Desire
5 out of 5 stars

In first book in the Alaskan Oil Barons series, author Catherine Mann introduces readers to Broderick Steele, a ruggedly sexy oil tycoon, and Glenna Mikkelson-Powers, his no nonsense family business rival—and previous one night stand.

Broderick and Glenna once shared a forbidden night together, and neither one of them has forgotten it. For years now, they’ve been rivals in the business world, but a shift in their family dynamics has placed them front and center in each other’s lives again. Only this time, they have the added complication of a baby.

A brilliant, provocative read that calls to mind the kind of family dynamics once depicted on television shows like Dallas, Falcon Crest, and Knots Landing.  Three long-running TV series where the family feuds and twisted loyalties were once an iconic pillar of prime-time television. Compelling family-centered stories that constantly kept people engaged in what was happening, and coming back for more. And its the same kind of story being told here.

Emotional, passionate, and enthralling, Catherine Mann’s The Baby Claim is a must read contemporary romance. With its beautiful Alaskan setting, its deeply layered cast of characters, and its gripping emotionally-centered conflicts, Mann gives readers a love story filled with humor, depth, and undeniable passion. And in doing so, the USA Today bestselling author sets the bar high for the rest of the books in this bright, engaging new series.
