PRACTICE HUSBAND

In high school, I was in love with Hunter Ness, but he friend-zoned me. Time passed. I grew up. He went to prison. And now he’s going to be my husband for a year.

There are reasons.

He’s not going to be a real husband. Just a practice husband so he can have a job and a place to live and I can finally experience parts of life I’ve only read about before. We’re just friends, and I’m helping him out.

But still… He’s way too sexy, and he knows me far too well. It’s hard to remember he’s not the real thing. But I’m going to stay smart. I’m not going to fall for my ex-con husband who only sees me as a friend.

I hope.

A FAMILY AFFAIR: THE CHOICE ~ NEW RELEASE

If Ben Reed could have guessed at the event that would hurl him into danger and set off a chain reaction that threatened his marriage, his family, his health, and his future in Magdalena, he would not have said it would occur at home. For a man who’d served his country, chased bad guys, and thrust himself into the middle of danger more often than not, his house was his safe haven, not a battle zone.

And maybe that’s why Ben never saw the accident coming.

As a physical therapist, Gina knows the toll a long rehabilitation can take on a person, and a relationship. Her husband’s perpetual moodiness, sullen attitude, and refusal to continue therapy create a battleground that’s about to explode. In desperation, Gina turns to the new physical therapist in town who’s been dubbed the Angel of Hope and Healing.

For a busted-up and beaten-down guy who questions his worth and ability to be what he once was, the beautiful physical therapist is just the balm he needs to assure him he can have anything he wants. By the time Ben realizes the woman’s interested in more than his recovery, a scandal erupts that makes Gina believe he’s betrayed her.

Now, Ben must win back his wife’s trust or risk the greatest heartache of all—a life without her. Of course, he’s going to need help, and isn’t offering guidance and help Magdalena’s specialty?

P.S. Did you know Harry’s going to rescue a dog? Oh, you won’t want to miss this one! I like to think of it as The rescued rescues a rescue.
