Happily ever after isn’t always easy to come by, but getting to the end of that road and finding it is well worth the journey is evident in this read! ~ Rosalie, Guilty Pleasures
After her husband was killed and she lost her unborn child, Sarah Madison believed she’d never find love and happiness again. Instead, she has channeled all her energy into her job as assistant to the sexy CEO of Guardian Security. When he proposes a marriage of convenience, the chance to become a mother is tempting, and so is her new prospective husband. His only flaw—the distance he keeps between himself and his sweet little daughter.
Reno Sullivan’s life is a mess. His first marriage was based on a lie, and the fiery death of his wife left him to raise a baby—a constant reminder of his wife’s deceit. He desperately needs someone to mother the child and take charge of his personal life, and his no-nonsense assistant is perfect for the job. Unfortunately, the alluring woman in the bedroom next to his chips away at his determination to maintain the hands-off clause in their agreement and the ice around his heart.
A near-tragedy and Reno’s fear of love could kill Sarah’s hopes of turning their fake marriage into happily ever after…
This book was previously published under the title The Bargain but has been heavily revised.
Getting married is something every woman dreams of. The big wedding walking down the aisle to the man of your dreams at the end. Except when a marriage is one of convenience, not love. In Guardian Security #3, Killing Lies, this is exactly what Sarah and Reno Sullivan decided to give Reno’s child a mother would be the best bet for all parties involved. Working together in the business, knowing each other, and getting along…what could POSSIBLY go wrong?!
Reno has had his heart broken on so many levels. But one thing that remained a constant was his baby girl. No matter the circumstances, he wanted to make sure that this precious little being was taken care of by TWO people that could love her with all their being. And Sarah seemed like the absolute perfect fit.
For Sarah, after losing her own child, really thought that marrying Reno and becoming his daughter’s “mother” would help to fill her void. “Having” this child with Reno to help him out though ends up with a totally different outcome.
Through twists and turns, Desiree Holt delivers ever present danger, mystery and hot and sexy characters. These two, even though they didn’t see it, had fire between them that jumped off the page at the reader. Watching the two battle with their emotions was heartbreaking at times, but Ms. Holt always has a way of ending with her readers in happy tears!! Another fantastic edition to her series!! One of my favorites, by far!!
