The Marriage Contract - Kat Cantrell
Desmond Pierce wants a child-but the conventional route won't do for the reclusive inventor. Enter McKenna Moore, a medical student willing to be a surrogate mom...and to marry by proxy without ever meeting her husband.
But when the baby's health requires McKenna to not only face Desmond but also live with him, their chemistry explodes. Soon McKenna is in his bed, where he wants her to stay. But saying yes to making their marriage real puts McKenna's dreams at risk-and forces Desmond to re-evaluate everything he's ever wanted...
The Rancher's Cinderella Bride - Sara Orwig
Meg Aldridge needs a fiance. Her family's demands that she marry have become unbearable. But a monthlong pretend engagement to her best friend, Gabe Callahan, should shut them right up. After all, they've been feuding with the Callahans for years.
Gabe's willing to give up the ladies temporarily and focus his attentions on Meg. She's his best friend; there's no danger of complications. But a made-over Meg is wearing sexy clothes and makeup...and stirring up new feelings. Will a month of being lovers for appearance's sake become a lifetime of the real thing?
