ARISTIDES' CONVENIENT WIFE
Aristides' Convenient Wife (4.5), by Jacqueline Baird, brings together Helen Heywood and Leon Aristides in a marriage of convenience born out of Helen's guardianship of Leon's orphaned nephew. What follows is anything but convenient. The jaded Leon and the innocent Helen discover a passion and love for one another that could change their lives forever -- if only they can trust each other. Baird excellently shows the developing fire between Leon and Helen while revealing enough of the turmoil in their backgrounds for the reader to understand their hesitance to trust their own hearts. This is a beautiful love story that will definitely leave you smiling.
