Overview

Chad Harwood is a famous writer with a dedicated amanuensis, Cara St. James, an intelligent woman who is an excellent foil for Chad's authorial brainstorming. They share an unspoken mutual depth of feeling, but neither will admit that to Self, much less to Other. Cara cohabits with little emotion with an arrogant high-flying financier, Reese, who at best is shallow; at his worst he is psychologically abusive and pathologically controlling and unfaithful. Chad knows Cara could do better--much better--but out of respect and due to his own integrity of character he never pushes the issue, until she determines on her own to leave Reese and Reese's lying nonsense. Chad makes an extra suite in his huge apartment available to her, and the work situation continues with growing emotional depth.

Editorial Reviews

JLFoster.biz - Frost Reviewer
Kate Hofman has outdone her already-excellent writing in A Marriage of Convenience. Chad Harwood is a famous writer with a dedicated amanuensis, Cara St. James, an intelligent woman who is an excellent foil for Chad's authorial brainstorming... This reviewer expects to return to this story again and again and again, for the sheer pleasure of sinking into the story and reliving the characters' experiences. 5 Swords!
Ecataromance - Lettetia Elsasser
A Marriage of Convenience presents readers with two of the most admirable characters I have read for some time. Author, Kate Hofman has written a poignant and realistic love story that I will re-read again. Chad and Cara are likable individuals with human flaws and foibles. The chemistry is subtle at first but blooms into much more with each connection. If you like your love stories packed with romance, engaging characters and easy to dislike villains, you will love A Marriage of Convenience.
