For most people, seeing Alaska is a dream come true. For Miami Beach resident, Samantha Held, it is merely a job assignment. An advertisement for vacationing in Alaska is one step closer to achieving her career goal, partnership in Kolinsky’s Advertising Agency. As far as accepting the offer of assistance from Blake Langford, a hunky Fish and Game officer and local rancher, though it is offered in a sour manner, she wasn't about to look a gift horse in the mouth.
Determined to sabotage Sam’s goal in every way, Blake isn’t willing to accept any exploitation of his beloved state, no matter how desirable the striking, southern blonde bombshell with fiery green eyes. Falling in love with the enemy was never part of the plan.

Staking a Claim was an okay read for me. I didn't love it and I didn't hate it. It started pretty slow for me took a while to get to any real relationship then it ended abruptly. Blake was a jerk for most of the book and Although I like me some jerks he didn't really have enough nice moments to balance it out. Sam I like but I felt like she should have stuck up for herself a little more. Blake would be a jerk and she would just get over it like it never happened. She would bounce right back after he would hurt her feelings like a boomerang. Both Blake and Sam did have their good points, but by the time I warmed to them and was looking forward to some real romance the story was over. HFN not HEA and no epilogue. I feel like it would have been a great story had it been longer. As it is it was decent book with very little drama. A nice quick, easy read. This is the first book I have read from Devon McKay but I liked it enough I would give her another shot.
