THE KEPT WOMAN
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
When her husband dumps her,
Sam surprises herself by deciding to accept the unconventional gig to negotiate security for her kids' futures. Unused to children, Jack nearly panics at the start of the charade, but Sam's humor and sexy appeal keep him grounded. The major problem is TV reporter Christy Schoen, who has a huge axe to grind with Jack. If there's any dirt to be found, she's going to find it.
These political shenanigans are both sexy and funny. Donovan takes the marriage-of-convenience plot and gives it a fun update that will leave readers grinning. Despite the book's unorthodox scenario, these characters are filled with genuine warmth and charm. (Jul., 372 pp., $6.99)
