Bestselling historical romance author Sherry Thomas branches out with her first contemporary romance about a chance meeting a lifetime in the making, and an all-consuming affair without a single predictable moment.
When Evangeline Canterbury meets the gorgeous, intriguing doctor next door, all she wants from him is a bit of distraction, to help her get over a few rough days.
Her one-night stand, however, has other plans: He needs an accomplished and presentable girlfriend to bring before his parents--and for six months of her time, he is willing and prepared to spend an obscene amount of money.
Nothing but trouble can come of such an arrangement. But can Eva stop herself? Or will she fall headlong in love with a man who will leave her when their contract expires with a smile, a check, and hardly a backward glance?

Meet the Author
Sherry Thomas burst onto the scene with PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2008. Her sophomore book, DELICIOUS, is a Library Journal Best Romance of 2008. Her next two books, NOT QUITE A HUSBAND and HIS AT NIGHT, are back-to-back winners of Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award for Best Historical Romance in 2010 and 2011. Lisa Kleypas calls her "the most powerfully original historical romance author working today."
Her story is all the more interesting given that English is Sherry's second language--she has come a long way from the days when she made her laborious way through Rosemary Roger's SWEET SAVAGE LOVE with an English-Chinese dictionary. She enjoys digging down to the emotional core of stories. And when she is not writing, she thinks about the zen and zaniness of her profession.

Wonderful writing. When I start reading a Sherry Thomas book, I can't put it down. This one was no exception. I'm recommending the book to all my friends.
I really prefer her historical novels. This was a little cumbersome and the plot was hard to believe.
As a fan of Sherry Thomas' historical romances, I was very excited to see her branch out into the genre of contemporary romance. I was certainly not disappointed! I was charmed and delighted by this book. I loved the main characters, as well as some of the secondary ones. The imperfections of both Bennett and Evangeline only made them more likable. The storyline kept me interested, and the chemistry between the two main characters was fantastic! The descriptions of the settings were vivid and enhanced the story. Evangeline Canterbury and Bennett Somerset come across one another after spending a memorable night together several months earlier. Bennett, who was disowned years ago, badly wants to reconcile with his parents. Evangeline is exactly the type of woman they would select for him, so she soon agrees to enter into a pretend relationship with him. From this point, nothing goes quite as Evangeline expects. As feelings for one another deepen, Evangeline isn't willing to open up and put her heart on the line. One of my favorite aspects of this book was the banter between the two main characters. I thought they had great dialogue, and I loved Eveline's dry sense of humor and the witty things she said. Bennett always took her teasing well and had some wonderful comebacks for her. These two characters were fantastic together, and I loved reading their story! I hope that Thomas will soon take another foray into the contemporary romance genre!
