Reaching back into one the Harlequin favorite story line of "man needs wife immediately" Lacey Wolfe adds her wonderful writing and twist to the age old story theme.
Steven is desperate. He's worked hard to take over the family company and now his grandfather has just added the stipulation that he will retire when Steven gets a wife. No wanting to marry his ex or any of the other women who have walked through his life, he decides to place an ad in the newspaper.
Darcy answers the ad.
Darcy is desperate in a different way. After racking up debts in a failed business venture she is in need of money. She decides to answer an ad for a wife from the newspaper and when she sees the ad is from an old high school classmate and likes him today to boot she decides to take his offer.
But how close is too close and what would happen if the two happen to fall in love in their fake marriage?
Help Wanted: A Wife
Darcy White can't believe she's answering a help wanted ad from someone looking to hire a wife, but she's hit rock bottom and is on the verge of being evicted from her apartment. When she learns that the guy she had a crush on in high school is the one looking to hire, she'd be crazy not to live out her fantasy.
Steven McDonald needs a wife, or at least a fiancée, before his grandfather retires or else he won't inherit the family business. He knows not just any woman will do, and in a desperate attempt to find a solution, he places a help wanted ad in the local paper. The day Darcy White answers it, his dreams begin to come true.
As Darcy and Steven pretend they're engaged, they make a promise to keep things platonic. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to keep their hands off one another. With his grandfather's retirement approaching, and the possible end to their fake engagement, can Steven and Darcy admit their feelings to not only themselves but each other?
