He needs a wife for three weeks…
Owen Phipps is out for revenge. His mission? To expose the man who stole his sister’s money and dignity. All he needs is a “wife” who can play along. Too bad his last best hope is an actress who tries to mace him with perfume when he offers her the role of a lifetime.
Lindy Covington is a real sap. She loves too hard, feels too deep, and often finds herself saying yes when she should be saying “Let me think about it.” She can’t believe her good fortune when Owen offers her more than enough money to hold off foreclosure until she can find a job. Three weeks at a resort, money she desperately needs, and she gets to help bring a criminal to justice? Score.
It seems easy enough until the first time a couples bonding game turns intimate, and they realize how dangerous their mutual attraction could be. Can they keep their hands to themselves long enough to find the evidence Owen needs? Or are the close quarters more temptation than they can handle?

Purchase from Entangled Publishing
I had not read romantic comedy in a long time, so when I learned of this latest release by Entangled Publishing, I immediately requested a review copy. I was not disappointed. Wife for Hire is a delightful, utterly romantic read with scenes that will make the reader laugh out loud. What I liked most about it, though, is the heroine. Lindy is the ultimate sympathetic heroine. She’s smart and independent, but at the same time she’s sensitive and has a huge heart. Owen is a wonderful hero as well, alpha enough to be tantalizing without being overbearing. Needless to say, there’s a lot of chemistry between the two.
From the very beginning I was pulled into the story, wondering how these two were going to fall for each other in such a silly situation. There are a lot of well-written sexy scenes and plenty of sensual tension. The story moves at a pretty quick pace with lots of dialogue. Wife for Hire kept me smiling and it’s just one of those stories that make you feel good and believe in romance. If you’re a fan of the genre, I encourage you to get yourself a copy. You won’t be disappointed.
