This marriage is strictly business . . . until the temptation gets way too real.
Corbin: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.
Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Corbin Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.

HIS TO LOVE | HIS TO PROTECT | HIS TO CHERISH | HIS TO SEDUCE
This standalone ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
When library assistant Teagan Monroe is laid off from her job, catches her boyfriend cheating, and ends up homeless all in a matter of hours, she doesn't think life could get any worse. Then she rear-ends the Mercedes of wealthy Corbin Lane, member of one of the richest families in Portland, Ore. Corbin's had a pretty bad day himself, thanks to the clause in his grandmother's will that states he must marry within six months (and stay married for at least two years) in order to keep the home he grew up in. When Corbin discovers Teagan's dilemma, he thinks he's found the perfect spouse, especially since she's beautiful and, as he quickly learns, has a great personality. He promises her money in exchange for a temporary, sex-free marriage. Corbin's life isn't as happy as the press portrays it, and he finds a new confidant in Teagan, who's nothing like the gold-digging socialites he usually dates. The loyalty and consideration they show for each other enhances their immediate, intense connection. Fun-loving secondary characters and great chemistry between the leads make this introduction to Lynn's Crazy Love series a winning romance.

Loved this great love story.
Teagan’s day started awful and it’s only going to get worse. First she was laid off from her job at the library, due to cut backs. Then when she goes home in the middle of the day, she catches her boyfriend in bed with someone else. As she packs her clothes in a suitcase, and takes off, she gets into a car accident with Portland’s most eligible bachelor. See, worst day ever! Confronting him and apologizing, Teagan wonders how she’s going to pay for the damages. However, he’s not yelling at her, Corbin Lane is more concerned about her than his car. When he recommends they pull over and go to the nearby coffee house, Teagan can’t imagine things are going to go well.
Corbin is currently mad at the world. He just buried his beloved grandmother that raised him, and then he was told the contents of her will. In order to get her home, he has to marry in six months and stay married for two years, otherwise, everything goes to his father. He doesn’t care about the money, but he can’t let his father take the home he grew up in and turn it into a mall. He needs to find a fake wife and fast. When he is rear-ended by Teagan, he sees it as a sign. She’s gorgeous and so honest that he makes her a proposition that he hopes she won’t refuse.
Teagan has never been one to jump at any decision, however, she’s unemployed, homeless and broke, so she seriously considers Corbin’s offer. The last thing she expected was to start having feelings for him.
This was a story well told with lots of sexy moments and swooning. I highly recommend this book.
Not worth it👎👎🙅🏻♀️👎👎🙄🙄👎🙅🏻♀️👎👎🙅🏻♀️👎
I’m not sure if it’s the writing style or the development of the characters, but this book was very frustrating to read. Corbin was so hot and cold, and then would blame Teagan for not being on the same page as him. I made it halfway through the book and gave up because I was so irritated with the hot/cold game he kept playing.
I usually love “fake fiancé/fake relationships that turn real” type of romances. But this one was not for me.
