What happens when a fake wedding date gets all too real?

Pretend to be famous bachelor Julian Cooper’s girlfriend? Some women might be thrilled with the request—not Gretchen McAlister. Her job is planning weddings, not being the best man’s date. But after Julian’s latest celebrity breakup, “ordinary” Gretchen is the perfect PR ploy.

Julian is against the whole plan…until he meets Gretchen. Honest and beautiful—even beneath her fancy makeover—his new “girlfriend” makes him want something more, something real…


Reclaimed by the Rancher by Janice Maynard

Only the fiancé she left in the dust can help her!

To fend off a mysterious oil company’s aggressive buyout offer and save her family land, Lucy Peyton can only turn to one man for help. Yes, she’d practically left Jeff Hartley at the altar, but she’d had her reasons. Such as catching the rich rancher kissing her best friend before the wedding! But now, face-to-face with Jeff on his doorstep, she realizes the chemistry between them is as strong as ever and panics.

If Lucy wants his help, she’ll have it—on his terms. She’ll also receive a lesson in what she missed when she ran. Because in the end, Jeff Hartley always gets what he wants…no matter how long he has to wait.

Review: She’s Having the Boss’s Baby by Kate Carlisle

She's Having the Boss's BabyShe’s Having the Boss’s Baby by Kate Carlisle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bought this book through the Harlequin site and really enjoyed reading it, so much so that I went back and got the author’s backlist works, only two of which I was missing. I enjoyed Aidan and Ellie’s journey to love, but wish I’d read the others in the connected series of books first. I’m certain they can all stand on their own, though I think I would’ve been a little more invested had I know the secondary characters and their journeys as well. Still, the book has great characterization and I recommend it to all those who love reading about a woman’s quest to become a mother and the lengths a man, a friend, will go to to keep this woman in his life.
