Married to Maggie by Jan Romes

My review follows the author’s book blurb found on Amazon.

“Texas playboy, Ty Vincent, heir to the Vincent Oil fortune needs a short-term wife to convince his grandfather and the Board of Directors that he’s changing his ways so they’ll name him CEO. Ditching an environmental conference in Atlanta to play in Reno, Ty suffers razor-sharp chest pains at the airport. The pains were becoming a common occurrence that started showing up after he lost his father in a fiery crash a year earlier. The woman who comes to his aid not only helps him with what she can only assume is a heart attack but she also fibs to keep airport security and paparazzi from descending on him. She’s brilliant, unemployed and not his type which makes her the perfect choice for a temporary spouse. If he can ignore her extraordinary blue eyes then everything will go according to plan.

Cardiac rehab nurse, Maggie Gray finds herself the victim of hospital downsizing. When T. Loy Vincent, I, a former patient, offers her a million dollars to get his grandson under control, Maggie is pressured by her father to enter into the wife-for-hire scheme. All she has to do is convince Ty Vincent to marry her. When she tracks Ty down at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport to put things in motion, she finds him in the middle of chest issues. The nurse in her takes over and before she knows it she’s eyebrow deep in yet another deal. The second she says yes to both agreements, her life is turned upside down. To top it off, she can’t seem to curb an annoying attraction for Dallas’s most famous womanizer.

Six months. No Sex. No telling each other what to do. It should be a win-win for them both. Will the mayhem of wealth, media attention, meddlesome friends and chemistry so hot it could melt plastic ruin their lives? Or will it be the catalyst for happily-ever-after?”

My Review:

I love romance stories and this book on spot romance. I was able to feel for the characters yet I did find it hard to believe that all this could happen in the span of one week, in Dallas. How two people could connect with obstacles thrown their way many times in one day, let alone seven days, and they still married? I would have run for the hills. I did like the character of Maggie. Having been a registered nurse it was easy to do so. The narrative is a fast easy read despite being so complex. Ty needed more backbone, and he really struggled with that issue. Anyone who loves contemporary romance stories should love this one. I found the three white roses in the bouquet especially touching.
