One lion. One human. One important lie.
I don’t have much going for me until I see an ad in the local newspaper. Wanted: one bride. It seems like a total scam except for the fact that it’ll get me out of Kansas. After dealing with my past, I’m more than happy to claim this Get Out of Kansas Free card. After spending a year in prison, staying married to a CEO for half of a year doesn’t seem too bad, now does it? Yeah, some weird things seem to happen in Rawr County and the people there aren’t exactly welcoming to outsiders, but it can’t be all bad…can it?
I’ll do whatever it takes to improve my image at the company. Apparently, my shareholders don’t look too fondly on the fact that I’ve been something of a playboy in recent years. All that’s about to change, though, because I’m getting married. The moment I see Melinda, I know that she’s the one. My inner-lion knows, too. She’s not just the woman I’m going to marry for the sake of improving my personal image. She’s the one I’m going to marry because she’s my fated mate.
Only, Melinda doesn’t know I’m a shifter, and she’s got a few secrets of her own. When an enemy from her past resurfaces in Rawr County, we’re going to have some hard decisions to make. We’re going to have to fight for what we believe in, and we’re going to have to fight for her safety. Luckily for Melinda, I love a good challenge.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book form the author for an honest review.
This book!!! EEEP. After I read The Dragon’s Fake Fiancée and loved it Sophie offered me more books if I wanted them. I screamed YEEESSSS!! Now this series is interconnected by the characters but can be read in any order. I mean I started with book 6 and am now reading backwards. You wont miss anything at all. The men are the main characters and we see them in each other books.
I loved Basil in Cosmos book, so I wanted to start with his book first. Basil is a big wig CEO who also likes to party big. When yet another round of pictures shows up in the gossip column he decides he needs to do something before the stock holders begin to loose faith in him since he is a bit on the “wild side” in her personal life. He tells everyone “Hey can’t I live it up at my Bachelor party??” Stunned is the consensus. Everyone is like “Whu?” SO off Basil runs to find a fake wife to make him look “stable.”
Melinda is living is a run down craptastic motel when she sees an ad for a fake bride. She needs cash, a place to stay, and a good hiding spot from her ex, Shane. She replies to the ad thinking never in a million years would anyone like her reply and then gets the shock of her life when Basil calls her for the job….Oh Captain…LOL read her email and you will understand.
From the minute they talk, everything is different and then when they see each other….Oh man….it all changes and Basil needs more from Melinda and she too needs more from Basil. They are stumbling into this fake but real but fake relationship until it all comes crashing down.
I absolutely loved Melinda and Basil…my fav scene is the engagement bathroom scene…wink wink. I can’t wait to read more because these men are truly captivating.
