CONTRACTED: CORPORATE WIFE

Author(s): 
Until they're stranded together after a meeting, wealthy businessman Patrick Farr barely notices his new assistant, Louisa Dennison. Afterward, Lou's on his mind constantly--and her champagne-fueled discourse about the advantages of a marriage of convenience between them is never far from his thoughts either. Could it really work? It's not long until Lou's a Contracted: Corporate Wife (4.5)-- but things don't go quite as planned. Jessica Hart is a marvel; she not only spins this classic premise until it's genuinely plausible, she makes both hero and heroine older than 40 and real--something all too rare these days.
