I’m super busy this week, but I feel a need to talk about something besides Taz, the new Stacey Puppy of Doom, so I’m going to share a book recommendation. I am loving this book. I’m actually glad I’m so busy because I’m savoring it in bits rather than devouring it in one bite, because then I’d be sad when it’s over.
So which book? Wife For A Week by Kelly Hunter (Harlequin Presents, August 1, 2007). It’s definitely a Harlequin Presents—rich dude, pretend marriage—but it’s fresh and fun and I think it’ll appeal to anybody who enjoys contemporary romance, not just Harlequin Presents fans. (And if you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen me use fresh and fun several times already with regard to this book. Because it is.)
Nicholas Cooper must produce a wife for his business deal, and Hallie Bennett is beautiful and intelligent enough to pull it off. She needs the money, and Nicholas has determined some strict rules for their week together.
Rule No. 1: Displays of affection in public only
Keeping their hands on each other in public turns out to be surprisingly easy. It’s keeping them off in private that’s the problem. Hallie is falling for Nicholas, but will Nicholas make his contract wife his real-life bride?
