A practical proposal, a fake wedding, an expiration date, and some serious obstacles just might end with a happily ever after...

In the novella Practically Persuaded in Pittsburgh, big city trader Jake Walker returns to the Strip District to run the family diner after his dad passes away unexpectedly. In order to gift his mom with the freedom to travel the world, he cooks up a short-order wedding with a sexy waitress who's practically part of the family. Sadie Evans hardly needs convincing to enter a pretend marriage with the man of her dreams—but what happens when Jake wants to make the union permanent and discovers she's already made other plans?

Ticket to True Love is a new series about fresh beginnings, second chances, and finding true love in unexpected places. Visitors to True Springs are skeptical about the town's legendary water leading them to love. Residents believe wholeheartedly, but even they don't realize that the water is only part of the story...

The Ticket to True Love series is brought to you by award-winning author JB Schroeder and a team of well-loved romance writers. We aim to give you a magically fresh experience in contemporary romance!

Practically Persuaded in Pittsburgh is a different mode from JB Schroeder and I love it! At novella length with a lighter setting than her usual thriller it still delivers rich characters and exciting romance. The Pittsburgh references are authentic and bring the story to life for this native Pittsburgher. Looking forward to the rest of the Ticket to True Love Series! I received this free ARC for my honest review.

Book 1 in the Ticket to True Love Series with multiple authors. I freely admit I am a JB Schroeder fan and if she asked me to trust her and read the alphabet book I would. When she admitted to writing a contemporary I asked for an arc and she graciously provided. I love suspense, thrillers wrapped with romance so I had to take a step back before I started reading this. It grabbed from the beginning which is always awesome. Jake I can relate. Been on those so called Team Building. This is a true contemporary romance that does not push the erotic edge that is so prevalent these days. There is some steam, don't get me wrong. I appreciated not having to skim chapters because of nothing but detailed sex. This was a story I could read. I did feel for poor Jake. Sure Leopards don't change their spots, but people grow up. Sadie stepped outside her wants, because she viewed her life by what others accomplished. Jake, the proverbial male, battling feelings and putting a plan in motion. Sadie, the girl who grew up with him, always had a crush on him trying to figure out her future. This is a fun, enjoyable romance. It's like sitting down in a comfortable chair with a cup of tea, going ahhhh.
