I thought this was a rather slight book when I first read it, and I got rid of it. Recently, years later, I was finding myself remembering the story regularly and wanting to read it again - finally found it, thanks to Name That Book and the Romance: From Historical to Contemporary groups on LT. I pretty much remembered the story, though I got some of the details wrong, but I very much enjoyed the re-read. This is one that sneaks under your skin. The story is reasonably standard - girl has to marry to inherit, refuses the planned husband and goes out and finds someone to be her husband for a year. He takes it because he doesn't really care (or thinks he doesn't) what happens to him - nursing a great guilt (his father died and he lived through a plane crash when he was flying the plane). She starts seeing her life through his eyes, and not liking quite a bit of it - makes some changes, to do with her half-siblings and her own skills. She did flat-out lie at the beginning - 'I'll cook your meals. Clean your house. I'll even share your bed.', then 'There won't be any [sex].' 'I've never washed dishes.' 'I don't know how to cook...'. Ah well.A panic attack over flying (turns out, with reason); an ill-advised investigation; an enemy; a kidnapping; and eventually a rescue make the last half of the book rather frantic, after the first part of establishing characters and positions. It's a fun read, and I'll probably re-read it.

## I liked the idea of the story. But the execution wasn't great. It just took so long for the hero and heroine to get together. They kept fighting it again and again with no reason. They were married, so just have sex already. And I thought the narative from the bad guy's view was too long. I had to skip a lot. Can't really recommend.
