THE HIRED HUSBAND
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)
