Review: The Brands Who Came for Christmas

For this review, I chose The Brands Who Came for Christmas by Maggie Shayne.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Caleb didn’t know that one night of bliss last spring with small town beauty Maya Brand had resulted in a pregnancy, until the blackmail attempt arrived on his desk in an unmarked envelope, complete with photos of Maya with a belly out to there. 

When he learns the truth, Caleb rushes back to Big Falls, determined to make it right despite what the scandal will do to his high profile career–the family legacy he had never truly wanted. 

All he wants is Maya, and their child. 

But can a girl whose father abandoned and betrayed her, ever truly believe in the goodness of a man who left town the morning after their one night stand? How can he convince her that he hasn’t stopped thinking about her since then, much less, do so with the whole world watching? He has to prove himself to a woman he’s not even sure he’s worthy of. But he has no idea how. 

The Oklahoma All-Girl Brands is a six-book, small town, contemporary romance series with shades of HOPE FLOATS and YOU’VE GOT MAIL. Spin off of the bestselling Texas Brand Series.

I brought this book from Amazon because I loved the description and the cover.  I wanted to read another Christmas book to help me get into the spirit of Christmas.  This is my first book I read by Ms Maggie Shayne.  

Caleb and Maya has a one night stand, but he does not tell her his real name.  Maya ends up pregnant, but when she tries to find Caleb, she can't.  Now what is Maya to do?  Raise her child on her own.  That is until a blackmailer mails Caleb a photo of Maya with her stomach out to there.  Now what is Caleb to do?  Caleb is worry about what his father will think and about his senate race if he decides to run.  But, what does Caleb really what with his life?

This is book #1 in the Oklahoma Brands.  I can not wait to read the rest of this series.  This had me hooked from page 1.  Loved the story line.  Believable characters.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
