Four Corners, Illinois

Acquiescence! That was what CEO Nelson McKade was sent to learn by his domineering grandfather in the middle of nowhere! Forcing each of his three spoiled grandsons to learn a life lesson, Nelsonís was to be a farm hand. What did Nelson know about farming? Give him numbers to crunch, so his Harvard educated brain would know what to do. Nelson was used to giving orders not taking them. Better to get this over with as quick as possible so he could go back to Chicago and do what he did best, run the family import/export business, and live his solitary life. Nelson learned upon arriving in Four Corners that his new boss, Ellen Tanner was not an elderly widow as he pictured her to be, but a very young and pretty one. Nelson also wasnít just a ďfarm handĒ, he was hired specifically to keep an eye on his ďFanny FarmerísĒ teenage son during the summer vacation so that she could take care of her dairy farm and work her second job at the local diner. Nelson was not liking this one bit, smelly cows, sleeping in a barn, and taking care of a snotty thirteen-year-old! One thing was for sure, Nelson was definitely not in command on Ellen Tannerís farm!

Widowed a year ago when her husband was killed in a construction accident, Ellen Tanner was on her own. Her dairy farm, a legacy from her late parents, and her son Seth were all that she lived for now. Ellen had to marry while still in high school when she became pregnant with Seth. She had no clue as to how to deal with a sophisticated city man like Nelson McKade. One thing Ellen did know was she wasnít about to let control freak Nelson call the shots in the way she ran her farm, or raised her son. Ellenís female urges were on overload whenever Nelson was near. Now how was she going to keep her debt ridden farm going, her son out of trouble, and sexy Nelson at armís length?

Quick and satisfying, like comfort food, is a book by Marin Thomas! Her latest in her McKade Brothers series, Nelson in Command delivers a delicious treat with a hunky mogul that likes to be in charge and a feisty farmer whose small town world and values are not to be excluded.
