Summary

His lawfully dreaded wife… 
When disaster strikes, Marianne Bray finds herself in quite a mess, and the most important things in the world are at stake; her family name and her reputation. Desperation leads to a solution she cannot bear, but she has no choice. She must bind herself to a man who can protect her, save her, and, more importantly, tolerate her. Unfortunately for her, that man is Kit Gerrard. 
Her awfully wedded husband… 
Kit knew he ought to have left Marianne to her fate, which was no more than she deserved, but he’d always had a weakness where she was concerned, so there was no alternative but to save her and sacrifice himself in the process. With his heart at risk, he takes her, swearing to harden himself against the one woman he’s always wanted, and prays it will be enough. But before long, he realizes he may be the one in need of saving.

    “Nicholas Sparks fans will rejoice to hear there’s a new male author on the scene who writes beautifully about love and emotionally charged relationships.” —RT Book Reviews Only a few months ago, Gerry Rubato had everything he thought he needed from life. After nearly twenty years of marriage, he was still passionately in love with his college sweetheart, he had a bright, independent-minded daughter, and he had the surprising addition of a new child on the way. Then everything changed with stunning rapidity. With little explanation, Gerry’s daughter ran away with her older boyfriend. Then, only a month after giving birth to their son, his wife died suddenly. Now, Gerry needs to be everything to his infant child while he contends with two losses he can barely comprehend. And when a woman walks into his life as a friend and their relationship verges on something more, Gerry must redefine all that he knows about himself, about love, about loyalty, and about his dreams. “Lou Aronica writes with deep sensitivity of the power of love to transform and heal in the face of overwhelming tragedy. A lovely read.” —Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Lost and Found Bookshop “Tears of sadness and joy go hand in hand in this immensely satisfying story.” —RT Book Reviews

    The marriage is fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    In the aftermath of his father's passing, Atlanta Falcons star running back Jax Green finds himself back in his hometown. He's attracting the attention from all the single women in town, but the only one he wants is Stacey Murphy. Stacey was just his best friend's annoying little sister when they were growing up, but now he sees her through new eyes and can't help but be smitten.
     
    Stacey always had big dreams, but if she's honest, her life has been pretty boring lately. When her high school crush returns home, even dreamier than she remembered, her feelings quickly resurface. She thinks she'll never be more than the kid sister to him, but they start spending time together and she hatches a plan to help him get the space he needs: fake marriage. She's surpised when Jax takes her up on it.
     
    Is this a crazy plan... or a perfect one?

    The vows were fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    "If we're still single at forty, we'll marry each other."
     
    To most friends it's a joke rather than a promise, but not for former high school sweethearts Rachel and Daniel, who run into each other on a plane to Vegas 20 years later. They bond over their unlucky history in love, and after a night of bad decisions and a trip to the drive-through altar, they end up married.
     
    In the moment, it seems perfect: Rachel has always wanted a family of her own; Daniel is nursing a broken heart after his ex-fiancée called off their wedding at the last minute. But when they wake up the next morning a little less starry eyed, they might just regret their hasty I do's.
     
    The clear thing to do is annul the marriage. Except... posing just seems to fit them. And they may just find that the best love stories happen out of order.

    The wedding is fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    Molly was abandoned at the altar and has no intention of heading back there anytime soon. When she crosses paths with arrogant fireman Tim, she knows better than to let her heart get involved. A serious journalist working for her family's newspaper, Molly's plan is to focus on her career and her adorable new labrador puppy.
     
    Tim left his own family's newspaper to become a fireman with the Atlanta Fire Department. He watched the media business consume his family and he has no time for journalists, let alone a beautiful and feisty one from his family's rival paper.
     
    When the feud gets even more personal, Molly and Tim have had enough. They hatch a Romeo & Juliet-esque plan to bring peace to their warring families with a fake engagement—and a fake wedding to go with it.
     
    But when their bid to reunite their families backfires, their attraction only grows—and Molly and Tim start to doubt if love truly conquers all.

     The engagement is fake, but the feelings are real. 
    Gwen Alder is starting over. Divorced and broke, she's come to Billings, Montana for a new beginning. But waitressing at a roadside diner for the summer isn't paying the bills. Heath Montgomery almost has it all—fame, fortune and a mega-watt smile. The one thing he's missing is a date for his cousin's wedding.
    When Gwen and Heath cross paths, Heath has an idea: what if he paid Gwen to be his date? No strings, no complications, just a simple transaction to get his parents off his back about settling down. When the wedding date ruse goes well, Heath asks Gwen to play his fiancé...for an entire weekend.
    They're nothing alike. To them, it's just a business arrangement. They definitely don't plan to fall for each other. But sometimes love has plans of its own.
