In order to receive his inheritance, Jake Mitchell must marry. In order to save her family's farm, Sue Lewis must marry a rich man. So Jake comes up with a plan. Why not strike up a platonic business arrangement where they can marry each other for six months? Then they are free to annul the marriage and go their separate ways.
Unfortunately for him, the people he knows are determined to keep them together. Between an army of suitors willing to court Sue before her annulment and the Lewis brothers scheming to show Jake how attractive she is, laughter and love are in the air. And in the end, a confirmed bachelor might discover that an inconvenient marriage may not be so inconvenient after all.

This was a good book for the price. The characters were fun, albeit a bit predictable. The story was good and all the characters were fun to read.
Easy Read, Entertaining.
I would agree with many that this book isn't very thought provoking, but that is not the intent of the novel. Romance novels are supposed to be mindless entertainment that make you think about the possibilities and simplicity of love. It's an easy read and predictable but very entertaining. If you enjoy watching romance movies, Lifetime, Hallmark, etc. you will enjoy this book. Again it's not top notch, but it's a nice distraction that will take you away.
Kept thinking it can't possibly be this bad...
But it really is. The language, mannerisms, and expressions are all wrong for the time period. Clearly the writer didn't bother with pesky research. There's minimal character developed and the dialogue made me roll my eyes. The writer incorporated contemporary slang and expressions into a period piece. 'Nuff said.
