Overview

With a hit man after her, Seattle architect Pamela Hayes needs to hide, and she runs as far as she can: to steamy Key West., Florida. Jonas Brenner, a local bar owner, is about to lose custody of his orphaned five-year-old niece�unless he can convince the courts that he�s a responsible father. What he needs is a prim and proper wife who will create the illusion that his niece is being raised in a stable environment. What Pam needs is a new identity. Joe offers her a deal: if she marries him and takes his name, no Pacific Northwest hit man is going to find her. In return, she can pose as Joe�s respectable wife, dutifully caring for his wild-child niece. Of course, this will be a marriage in name only. No sex. No emotions. No love. Which, once Pam and Joe move in together and the sparks begin to fly, is easier said than done.


�When a classy architect joins in a marriage of convenience with a slightly scruffy bartender to hide from a hit man out to kill her, frustration runs high, making both want to CRY UNCLE and get on with the loving. Judith Arnold is a perennial favorite whose keen wit and way with mystery always hits the mark.****���RT Book Reviews

I should have known better than to pick up another book by this author, after reading Father Found, I was so disgusted with those characters I didn't think I would ever read one of Judith Arnold's books again. The synopsis for this book,however, was so interesting I went against my better judgement and purchased it, big mistake. This books only saving grace are two things: 1) Ms. Arnold always writes from different characters POV, which makes the book much more interesting & 2) Lizard, the most infuriating, sassy, smart, cute and brutally honest five year old ever! The biggest problem with this book is the repetition, its like every other page either Pam or Joe were going over the marriage and why they did it, what they don't expect from each other, what they do expect...it was so frustrating reading the same crap over and over again! Ms. Arnold has this very annoying way of writing very weak and exhausting female leads, women who just can't seem to make up their minds. This was missing the action I thought it would have, which sucks because the premise for the book is actually quite good, it could have just been written better. SR

This book was part of a boxed set by 4 author's on Marriage of Convenience. I would have rated this higher, but I couldn't stand Lizard, she was mouthy, no manner's and no-one really tried to change her, except at times Pam. Other than that, it is fairly a clean story with only one sexual act, and not much on description. If you are a Romance Reader, you know what I mean. I will not go into the plot, as it has been explained. The Romance does build, some tension, and I liked the ending. Usually I am disappointed when there isn't an Epilogue, but things were wrapped up pretty nicely. Had some interesting secondary character's that added to the story. I don't feel it is really worth $4.99 by itself, but is worth it in the boxed set I mentioned earlier. (ljb)
