Solitaire has a problem, her rent has gone up. She loves running her late father's café, but financially she's struggling. Solitaire has an ill mother to take care of and she wants to pay her super smart sister's college tuition. She has to talk to her landlord to see if she can make a deal with him. Xavier is a clever businessman and rents are normally non negotiable, but there's something he desperately needs and Solitaire can help him with that. To inherit his great-aunt's home he needs a wife. Will they be able to come up with a solution for both of their problems? Solitaire is willing to marry Xavier if that means her mother and sister will benefit. She moves into his home to be his pretend bride. Xavier works all the time and it isn't easy to defrost the reserved man, but Solitaire's charms are difficult to resist and soon the marriage starts to feel very real. However, the arrangement is supposed to be only temporary. What will happen when it ends? A Contract, A Wedding, A Wife? is a wonderful romantic story. Solitaire is cheerful, positive and sweet. I loved her open character and her fabulous generous nature. Xavier is reserved and has been hurt too many times to trust others, but Solitaire's disarming personality helps to break down the walls he's built around himself. I loved how she slowly manages to turn him into a different version of himself, she makes him shine and his softer side comes to the surface. I really liked their chemistry and beautiful deep connection and couldn't wait to find out if their arrangement would end with shattered hearts or happiness. Christy McKellen has written a fantastic heartwarming story. I immediately fell in love with A Contract, A Wedding, A Wife? It's charming, entertaining and dynamic. I was fascinated by this lovely feelgood story and loved that it put a big smile on my face. I greatly appreciate it when a book brings so much joy and the positivity radiates off the pages. I highly recommend A Contract, A Wedding, A Wife? because of its optimism, sunniness and sparkle.

A sweet "arranged marriage that turns into forever" story! A fast paced read involving a man who doesn't think love and forever belong in his life who stumbles across a dreamer of a gal who teaches him that it's never too late to start over! An entertaining read with minimum strife and a fitting happy ever after. Solitaire Saunders is just desperate enough to do just about anything to save her family's cafe. She has more responsibilities on her shoulder than anyone can imagine, so she can't add one more thing to the list or she will crumble. A rare request from a virtual stranger might seem extreme ... but she'll do it if it means her family will be taken care of! Xavier McQueen isn't heartless, and he doesn't mean to make Soli's life difficult, but business is business ... however, when she offers just the right incentive, he's willing to listen! He needs a temporary, no strings wife in order to secure his inheritance, and if she's willing to become his wife under those terms, they've got themselves a deal! Only neither of them expected to feel the chemistry and attraction to each other that comes about.
