I have to admit, when I first picked up this novel, it was not what I expected. After reading it, what I found was that it was much more than I ever anticipated. I expected a story of two people whose lives had intersected, and those secrets that each held made their lives together more than interesting. What developed was a highly entertaining, deeply involved story of murder, betrayal, and more secrets than anyone has a right to. The characters drew me in, and helped make the novel as enchanting as it was. Obviously, this novel was a pure delight to read, and I have no doubt whatsoever that anyone who picks up this book will agree.

She decides to care for the injured man herself, and in doing so, discovers that there is much more to Jeremy Loud than meets the eye. Jeremy, on the other hand, is very surprised by his spontaneous nurse. Not only is she gorgeous, but she’s very spirited as well. So he’s highly surprised when, to save her from embarrassment, she agrees to his surprise plan to announce to the world that she is his proxy bride! And then the town surprises them both and makes it real! But when the past comes back to threaten them both, can Magen and Jeremy find a way to overcome their secrets and learn to be happy together?
