Her friend. Her boss. Her husband? Betsy Harris has always known Jace Macnamara was off-limits. Not only is he a close friend, he also happens to be her boss-making him doubly forbidden. Betsy's too timid to ever admit her crush, nor 'fess up to the fact that she's secretly drowning in her mother's medical bills. Jace just found out he needs a wife and needs one now. His childhood home-the last reminder he has of his deceased parents-can only become his if he gets married, but Jace, ever the playboy, never dreamed of settling down for real. Neither Betsy nor Jace wants to ruin their friendship when their fake marriage inevitably ends, so they vow to keep things light, professional, easy. But as Betsy comes out of her shell, Jace begins to see his "wife" for the beautiful, caring woman she is. Can he risk their past for a future together?
