Dive into the friends-to-lovers, fake fiancé romance that launched the #1 NYT Bestselling series! It's not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It's definitely the SIZE of the boat too. And I've got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse. Fine, I might be a playboy, but I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind. The only trouble is, my dad needs to close a deal and to do so, I need to look the part of the committed guy. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte has her reasons for saying yes. But pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets. Trouble is, I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her. What the hell have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

This is the story of a very old rock. The "'big rock" is a granite boulder that began as molten rock millions of years ago. Through the ages, the mountains above it wore down, the ocean flooded the region, and then new mountains heaved the rock upward, to the surface of a New York State forest. Even though the dinosaurs and other living things have come and gone, the rock remains as a survivor of the Ice Age and silent witness to the earth's continuing evolution. Once you know its story, you will never again overlook another rock like this one.

To a great extent this is a folk-history. Real people are telling their own stories or those of their friends and relatives. The pioneer period has been emphasized because the writers felt that their unusual opportunity for obtaining first hand information could never be duplicated by succeeding historians.
