あらすじ・解説

Clara Barnes wants a baby, and I’m going to give her one.

I wanted Clara the first time I saw her, but as soon as I figured out she was the local vet and would be working on my ranch, I knew I had to let her go. I put myself in the friend-zone until the night she told me she wanted to get knocked up.

There wasn’t a chance I’d let another guy get her pregnant, even if he was an anonymous donor. Not when she had me, Maverick Wilde - grade A certified Montana cowboy - right in front of her. The arrangement was perfect. I make my donation, she gets her baby, we go back to being friends. No strings. No messy heartbreak.

Except everything changes when we decide it’ll be a lot more fun to make a direct deposit and do things the old-fashioned way. That spark between us? Now it’s a blazing fire I have no desire to extinguish. Our baby proposition just got a lot more complicated. 

Featuring duet narration from J.F. Harding and Stella Hunter.

I LOVED Mav & Clara!

Every cowboy book Kim Loraine writes is pure perfection. The Baby Proposition just shot to the top of my list. The story is fantastic & the performances by Stella Hunter & J.F. Harding were some of the best I've listened to! There's no way you won't fall in love with Mav & Clara. I just adored Clara and how she knew what she wanted and was gonna make it happen her way. There was a scene when she was out with her girlfriends that made me laugh. Jenna was giving Clara the hardest time about not getting it on with Mav when she pops out with this line "not this b*tch and Maverick." Lol!
Maverick is the swooniest man and J.F. nails every line. Gems like this: "I won't even charge you a stud fee." or "You're mine darlin'. Until this is over. You understand?"

Sweet and Satisfying Wilde ride!!


The Baby Proposition by Kim Loraine a sweet, seductive "Wilde" ride that I couldn't get enough of. I've been so excited to finally get Maverick's story, and this "planned" baby proposal that turned into so much more hooked me from start to finish. Kim Loraine has a way of making the reader/ listener feel completely connected to the characters and entirely consumed in their love stories.

Stella Hunter and J.F. Harding narrate the audiobook in duet style narration. This was my first time hearing these two paired together, and they sounded amazing! Clara is a vet on the Wilde Ranch, and has never seen Maverick as any more than a friend and coworker. However, Clara is approaching 40, and wants a baby of her own. Stella did a fantastic job showcasing all of Clara's independent, loving, and dedicated qualities in her performance. Stella simply made me fall in love with Clara's strength and passion to go after what she wanted. J.F. Harding was an absolute dream as Maverick. In his narration, you could feel all of Maverick's vulnerabilities, ambitions, and desires as he figures out what really matters in his life; all performed in a sinful southern drawl. Maverick and Clara's chemistry was off the charts HOT!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you love a friends to lovers/ workplace romance with a hot hunky cowboy (oh baby!), a determined fierce vet, black lace and steamy times, a loyal and supportive family, a baby proposition that of course turns into so much more, and a sweet satisfying HEA that will drive you wild, then baby, you will absolutely adore Maverick and Clara's love story. I always look forward to more from Kim Loraine.

No stud fee required!!

The Baby Proposition by Kim Loraine is a friends-to-lovers, pregnancy-bargain romance set in the Sunrise, Montana world where the Ryker/Wilde Ranch series take place. Maverick “Mav” Wilde has always been attracted to the beautiful Clara Barnes, but has resisted her since Clara worked on his ranch as the vet. Mav is a confident, but broken cowboy that doesn’t feel like he belongs in Sunrise running the ranch with his brothers. Clara, nearing 40 years old, has decided that she doesn’t need a man to get to what she wants out of life… a successful career and a baby. She sets out to have a baby by choosing a donor, but Mav won’t let it happen and decides to make her a proposition. Mav and Clara are long-time friends, but will everything change when Mav offers to become Clara’s “stud”, no fee required? And then he ups the stakes even more by offering to make it a “direct deposit” (wink, wink).
The Baby Proposition is a duet narration with J.F. Harding as Mav and Stella Hunter as Clara. They are a great match for this book. Their performances evoke so much emotion and take the listener on a stunning adventure of friendship, heartbreak, love, and finding your place in the world. I felt the words deep in my soul throughout their performance.
The Baby Proposition is a stand-alone novel and is the first book in the Anything for Love series. Since it has several characters that are mentioned in the Ryker/Wilde Ranch series, your reading experience will be enhanced by reading those first. Plus, disappearing into the Sunrise, Montana world of swoon-worthy cowboys is always an enjoyable experience.
I absolutely loved everything about the book… the story, Stella Hunter, J.F. Harding and the way he says “baby” and “darlin’.” I laughed, I cried, I bawled during the voicemail, and I swooned when they finally found their happily ever after!

Cowboy Perfection!

Well, I’m going to go pack my bags and head to Sunrise. With every book we get in the Ryker/Wilde world, I’m even more convinced I need to go find a cowboy for myself. “The Baby Proposition” was a steamy, sweet and heartfelt friends to lovers swoony romance.

Clara is almost 40 and she wants a baby. All relationships before have never amounted to anything and she’s ready to take the next stop by herself. That’s until her longtime friend/wedding date offers up his stud services and be the father to her baby. The two have been friends for years but taking their friendship to another level with feelings neither was expecting.

Man oh man. Maverick Wilde, you were such a pleasant surprise. A confident cowboy on the outside but definitely has some personal issues underneath that make him even hotter. His issues are relatable and you can’t help but feel for him. And I loved Clara. Smart, confident and not afraid to go for what she wants. Daddy boot camp was hilarious. And we get plenty of updates from the Rykers and Wildes. The ending was perfect and had me in happy tears.

Stella Hunter was absolutely fabulous as Clara. And J.F. Harding was so swoony as Maverick. He was the perfect cowboy.

Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy indeed!

Kim Loraine always brings it when it comes to those cowboys! I loved the banter between Mav and Clara and they are now my fav Sunrise couple. J.F. Harding was a new to me narrator and he will definitely be on my radar now! Hot, hot, hot! As usual, Stella turns in another fabulous performance and I so appreciate the duet style. Especially with the quick witted dialog in this book. Perfection!

Great!


Review Love reading about Maverick and Clara because not only did we get their sizzling story but we also got to visit with the rest of the Wildes and Rykers. The story is not too long and I love how they are friends beforehand and become so much more after. While Clara needed a little more convincing, I love how Maverick doesn't hesitate to realize he wants more with her.

I love what the narrators did in the audio version. They really brought the characters to life and I couldn't stop listening.

Wonderfully steamy cowboy romance!

Maverick Wilde grabbed my heart right from the start! I was so curious about him from Kim Loraine’s other books in the wonderful Wilde Horse Ranch series. He is a wounded soul who has always felt like he didn’t belong. For the past 2 years, he has worked with Clara Barnes, the vet on Wilde Horse Ranch. She was off limits because they worked together, but she wouldn’t stay out of his heart. Even though she tried to keep him in the friend zone, she thought of him every time she read a romance novel – and he always outdid the heroes in real life. Everything changes between them when Clara reveals that she wants to have a baby and plans to find a donor. Mav makes a very interesting proposition that Clara can’t resist. It’s not long before their attraction becomes overwhelming, their feelings can’t be denied and he promises her all the romance novel moments. He delivers them over and over again, starting with the first time he call her “baby.” Be prepared to swoon! He woos her and despite often feeling unworthy, he still wants to give her his love, his child and his forever.

Stella Hunter and J.F. Harding have such incredible chemistry! Stella Hunter was already a favorite of mine and is perfect as the strong, feisty, loyal Clara who won’t give up on love. She is a force of nature! Stella’s rich voice brings her to life in the most fantastic way. J.F. Harding was such a revelation and I need more of his books! He made you feel every bit of Maverick’s hurt, fear, longing and love. His southern drawl will melt your heart…and your panties.

Sexy and sassy friends to lovers

I love a good friends to lovers book-and this isn't a good one, it's a great one. The Baby Proposition is fun, sweet and sexy as all get out. I highly recommend diving into this fabulous world that Kim Loraine created.

This book is a standalone, but if you're like me and you love Kim Loraine then you've been introduced to Maverick and Clara before. I was positively giddy to find out how their story was going to unfold-and I was NOT disappointed.

I love Clara. I love her because she's so strong and so willing to go after what she wants. She's honest, smart, sassy and sexy. She is the kind of woman you want at your side when things are tough. I would 100% be friends with her in real life.

Maverick. Oh, holy swoon Maverick. I was NOT expecting him to stake the claim in my heart that he did. Did I know I would love him? Yes. But I LOVE him. Like to the point of saying he's one of my top 3 Kim Loraine book boyfriends (yes, I have a list. Don't judge :) ) This man is at a crossroads and watching him figure out how to handle his life, and Clara, just drew me in. I adore him.

These two together are smoking hot. Their friendship is always there but when things get kicked up...they don't get kicked up a notch, it's more like 100 notches. But it works for them and it worked for me as a reader. I believed in them.

The supporting characters here had me smiling. They don't overpower at all, just enhance. But this world that's created in this book? I could happily live there. This book just flows from start to finish and it's one I HAD to read in one sitting because I enjoyed it so much.

Can we talk narrators for a minute? The world knows I love Stella Hunter. Like LOVE. She's incredible and gives such perfect voice to Clara. She truly brought her to life for me. J.F. Harding?? Where has this man been hiding?! His voice was just perfect for Maverick. Hearing him say a certain term of endearment gave me goosebumps and only one other narrator has done that. These two were just incredible together and I hope they are paired together again!!

This book will leave you smiling-I guarantee it. I absolutely loved it from start to finish...and can't wait to read it again. I highly recommend this book!!

Absolutely swoonilicious

Kim Loraine really knows how to write good swoon as here comes Maverick Wilde melting our hearts into a puddle. I, for one, am in love! This friends to lovers’ story is all you could wish for, a beautiful friendship that turns into sweet steamy lovin´ mixed with tantalising longing and a little drama to get our heart aching just a smidge.

Maverick and Clara have been friends for a long time, both secretly burning for one another but not acting on those hidden feelings because of their working relations and friendship. Although when Mav finds out Clara wants to have a baby on her own, he gallantly offers to be her "Baby-Daddy" because he can’t imagine anyone else filling that role. Mav & Clara have such sparkling chemistry and I was enthralled following them through their story to a blissful HEA, needless to say with a few complications on the way. It was also wonderful to see familiar characters make an appearance as you can never have enough cowboys around and Mama Ryker is just a gem.

Seriously, every time, I read one of Kim´s cowboy romances, I think this is it, this is the one who stole my heart but then I am surprised once more by the next swoony charming stud that comes along claiming my heart. This story is no different and I can always count on Kim to give me what my heart desires, the perfect love story with an even swoonier cowboy! She is also a genius in finding the best narrators to portray these characters. We are treated to duet narration by Stella Hunter and J.F.Harding, and HOLY WOW, have you listened to J.F. Harding!?!? He is my new narrator crush, and I was fangirl-dying listening to him say, DARLING, BABY and all the things in this southern drawl! His voice should probably come with a warning “Caution! Be swooned, sweet-talked and have your earbuds melted at your own risk” Ahhhh and Stella Hunter gave me all the feels with her passion for animals, her sweet sassy demeanour and fervent determination as Clara. She just is fantabulous!

I love Mav!!

Maverick and Clara have been friends for years. She works as a vet for the surrounding ranches, including Mav’s. They both are attracted to each other, but neither will admit it to the other. Although single, Clara wants to have a child. She doesn’t want to waste time waiting for Mr. Right. When she lets Maverick in on her plan, he decides to offer his services.

Maverick is kind of a loner; never staying in the same place for long. He has his brothers, but they have their own families, and although he doesn’t feel like the odd man out, he has no plans to settle down. Clara also has no desire to get married. But when he and Clara start working on a baby, he begins rethinking his stance on relationships. Even though they’ve been friends for years, Mav and Clara start seeing each other in a new light. Maybe, just maybe…

I loved the flirty banter between Mav and Clara. Their chemistry was obvious, but it got even stronger once they started trying to get pregnant. Their friendship evolved into a much stronger bond, and the heat between these two was off the charts. I loved getting an update on characters I’ve read and meeting some new ones in the world of Kim Loraine’s cowboys.

Kim creates some amazing cowboys and I love their stories. J.F. Harding and Stella Hunter give a wonderful narrating performance.

Clara and Maverick!

Clara is the town vet which has severely limited her dating experiences as both she and the cowboys she works for are hesitant to cross lines and destroy their business relationship. She has reached the time in her life when she wants a child and is prepared to do it alone however when her best friend Maverick finds out it changes everything.

Maverick doesn’t believe that love or a relationship is for him but that doesn’t mean he isn’t attracted to Clara. Their friendship is tested as what started out as being each other’s dates for all the upcoming weddings to keep the matchmakers away turns into Maverick offering to give Clara the baby she wants the old-fashioned way.

Friendship turns to love as the chemistry between them ignites as Maverick tries to show Clara he is a man she can count for her and their child even if they had some missteps along the way. The performance of the narrators was everything you could want and more as they brought out all the steam and emotion of the story.

Oh Baby!

Oh, "Baby", this book has driven me "Wilde"! I have been waiting for Maverick! And this book is so worth the wait! Clara is the vet on the Wilde Ranch. She has caught the eye of Maverick, but employees don't make good bedfellows, plus he doesn't do relationships. Clara is coming up on 40 and is feeling her biological timeclock ticking. Looking to have a baby on her own, she tells Mav after one of the many weddings they have attended together, and now our fun begins. Kim Loraine has me falling for this man, and I know it happens every time, but he is now my favorite! Swoony and sweet, I fell hard for this one. Clara is quite the woman. I love her independent streak and the passion she has for the animals. These two have witty banter, incredible chemistry and small obstacles to hurdle. And not only do we get these two, but we get to see our favorite cowboys pop in too! And a quick novella to start, The Wedding Date Proposition, giving us that look back at how these two started their relationship of sorts. These cowboys have fast become some of my top listens and I can't wait for more.

Now let's talk the narration. Maverick is a special one, and the twang of JF Harding could not be cast better. He just fits this man perfectly. Harding's versatility comes through with his many male characters and he brings out all Mav's characteristics with a realistic Stella Hunter adds her warm voice in as Clara. I absolutely love her, everything she does is spot on, and this performance is no different. Pulling out all the emotions, we relate easily to Clara. Love this team, perfect for this book!
