From the Publisher:

An impossible demand...
Max Jernigan is ready to close the most important business deal of his life-all he has to do is agree to one request from Grayson Crowell: impregnate the mogul's daughter.
No way can Max do this. He's a decent guy. But he would love a child. He just doesn't want a wife.

An impossible man...
C.C. Crowell gave up on dreams of a family after Mr. Worse-Than-Wrong broke her heart. Hiding behind spreadsheets, boring suits and an icy attitude, she's more than a little suspicious when arrogant, handsome Max is suddenly chasing her. But she can't deny their chemistry. Until she learns about the deal and plans to pay Max back in kind....

My review: 

This is a quick read contemporary chick-lit romance that has some cute and funny moments, some deeper introspection and a conniving father who wants to be pulling the strings... The author takes many roads to reach her conclusions, including having the couple meet for the first time before either of them know who the other really is... which gives the reader some opportunity to get to know the characters better before they start their romance.  I love how the story unfolds in many different directions, including introducing two additional characters whose romance is sure to become a sequel to this e-book.  This book does follow the typical 'romance' formula but does it well enough to invoke some true thought and a few emotions along the way.  I recommend this book to anyone looking for a weekend 'escape' read... 

About the Author:

Mary Campisi should have known she'd become a writer when, at age thirteen, she began changing the endings to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs—including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk and practice manager in an OB/GYN office—for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.
When she's not working on her craft or following the lives of five young adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or, on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own "hero" husband on his Electra Glide Classic.
Mary is also the author of Not Your Everyday Housewife, A Family Affair, The Butterfly Garden, Simple Riches, Paradise Found, and Innocent Betrayal.
