You can’t win if you don’t play…

Her town’s lack of men may make headlines, but it isn’t news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool’s Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town.

Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers—the perfect contestants—off the show. Despite Dakota’s better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn’t dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV.

Once again I'm moving to Fool's Gold! The is an integral character in and of itself. The vivid description of Fool's Gold and amazing storyline of the people who reside there, never cease to amaze me.

Dakota and Finn had an easy-going, fun kind of relationship. You could tell that they truly enjoyed the other's company. With Finn's dry sense of humor, they were matched perfectly. One of Finn's strongest attributes was his love and commitment to his family, and with Dakota coming from a large close-knit family, it was key the the man for her would have that same commitment.

When I wasn't totally engrossed with watching Finn and Dakota fall in love, I was engrossed with his little brother fall in love. It was like getting two love stories for the price of one. I hope to see more of Stephen and Aurelia in future Fool's Gold novels.

Witnessing Dakota's struggles were truly heart wrenching which made her getting her happy ever after all the more sweeter.
