Overview

"Will do anything legal for $50,000." When a beautiful young heiress answers his ad for emergency funds to repair his boat, it's practically a dream come true for Nantucket native Kevin Dunbar. Unfortunately, it's the worst nightmare imaginable for the spoiled and self-absorbed Rachel McCarrick. Intent on temporarily passing Kevin off as her fiancee in order to orchestrate a marriage to the real love of her life, the last thing Rachel ever expected was that both her mother and her cynical grandfather would actually warm up to this guy. Her father, of course, plays true to form, enlisting the aid of one of Rachel's former beaus to expose Kevin as nothing more than a fortune hunter. Unbeknownst to all save Rachel's grandfather, however, the only fortune Kevin has his sights on right now has absolutely nothing-and everything- to do with the girl whose heart was his from the very first night they met.

Editorial Reviews

JoEllen Reviewer
This is not your typical Wedding of Convenience plot. It becomes a witty farce of errors when heiress Rachel McCarrick goes to great lengths to keep from marrying her old boy friend, which includes hiring a stand-in- bridegroom...Once Kevin is introduced to Rachel's family, there are plenty of comical twists and situations to keep you laughing. 4 1/2 beacons
Jessica Reviewer
This book was one that I had to read in an entire weekend as I could not wait to see what unfolded on the next page. I was immediately drawn to Kevin's passionate personality to jump in and save Rachel each time she was over her head. Rachel's family provided a wonderful backdrop for Rachel to realize what it is really is in life that she desperately wants. Christina Hamlett has done an outstanding job at creating a story that can turn any reader into a hopeless romantic and earned 5 Angels.

There is some great dialogue in this story and some really hilarious thoughts too. This story is filled with zany characters and that zaniness is exactly what makes this a super tale, fitting so well to Kevin's comical sense of humor, and making him so right for the entire family. Wonderful! 5 hearts
