Hank Mallone knows he’s in trouble when Maggie Toone agrees to pretend to be his wife in order to improve his rogue’s reputation. Will his harebrained scheme to get a bank loan for his business backfire once Maggie arrives in his small Vermont town and lets the gossips take a look?

Maggie never expected her employer to be drop-dead handsome, but she’s too intrigued by his offer to say no—and too eager to escape a life that made her feel trapped. The deal is strictly business, both agree, until Hank turns out to be every fantasy she ever had.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Critt plunges into the frothy romance with gusto, keeping the tempo fast and the interplay between the main characters sexy, rapid-fire, and funny. A plus is Critt’s portrayal of a feisty, gun-toting housekeeper, who keeps the action on its toes…For light listening pleasure, this fits the bill.”

    " lighthearted romance - kind of well - I dont know. Did not like the voice reading the book.
    would have preferred to read this one rather than listen to.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessi | 4/30/2011

    " Typical nineties romance. Man needs a wife so that his banker-father will lend him money so that man can develop his organic apple farm. Woman needs money and agrees to be his temp wife. They fall in love. Blah, blah, blah. If you like Janet Evanovich, you'll like this book. Fast, good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 4/21/2011

    " Fast and cute read. Janet Evanovich never disappoints with her steaminess. It was a little too abrupt for me but at least I was never bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 3/29/2011

    " Maggie Toone was a tempting firecracker who'd make his life delightful hell if he let her pretend to be his wife in order to improve his rogue's reputation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shea | 2/18/2011

    " This was a fun, fast read that at times was laugh out loud funny. The main characters, Hank and Maggie, had 6 months to get to know eachother and fall in love and I would have preferred if Evanovich would have made better use of that time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arica | 2/11/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 12/23/2010

    " Fun shallow. Reminded my of Stephanie Plum. Can Evanovitch do anything new/different?? But still it made me laugh! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ruth | 12/20/2010

    " Listened to this in the car. Basically one step from Nora Roberts (whom I've never read). Man and woman have a business arrangment, but fall immediately in love within 4 hours. Not credible, but a very mindless listen for my commute. "
