THE HIRED HUSBAND

Author(s): 
When her father's business empire falls and her brother disappears, Rachel Branford hires financial consultant Mitch Kincade to sort out the mess and uncover where the money has gone.

Raised in an orphanage, Mitch has worked his entire life to amass money and power. He has no time for love, until Rachel offers him first a place in her home and then herself in marriage.

Mitch has no use for the rich, but Rachel tempts him with her kindness and true concern for people. He begins to think about possibly having someone to love, but once he reveals the truth behind Rachel's finances, will there be any hope for their future?

Stacy's heartwarming Americana style fits perfectly into this tale of an heiress and an upstart. The characters and the story's touching sentiments have a wonderfully warm appeal. SENSUAL (Nov., 300 pp., $5.50)
