This was just a lighthearted romance about a womanising politician whom the public disapprove of,who pays a hairstylist desperately struggling alone to support her three children,to pretend to be his fiancee.A bit sexually frank for me ,but not nasty,and well leavened with humour, and charming characters.Not a genre I read usually,but it was a relief after yet another conspiracy/terrorism/ novel with crazed arabs wanting to blow up the world - we get enough of that in the real world!.Just pleasant and relaxing fluff between the serial killers.alien invasions and worthy classics ( )

I usually love Donovan but this was not her best. In fact, I really dislike the 'let's pretend we're married so I can get elected' storylines. Blah! The hero and the book don't get my vote! (Grade: C) ( )

When hard-working single mother Sam is offered the chance to clear all of her debts and start a little nest egg by posing as a politician's fiancee, she agrees. She doesn't expect to fall in love with the candidate - bad boy Jack Tolliver - but then a lot happens that she doesn't expect. Entertaining, even if the ending is a little too pat. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312939507, Mass Market Paperback)

WHEN A GOOD-GIRL DIVORCÉE Playing by the rules has left Samantha Monroe with an AWOL ex-husband, maxed out credit cards, and the task of raising three children on a hairstylist's salary. It's time for a new game plan. When Sam learns that politician Jack Tolliver needs someone to play the part of his fiancée for six months in return for a generous paycheck, she's ready to sign up on the spot.

Jack needs Sam and her kids to help tone down his image from womanizing cad to dependable dad. But he was expecting Sam to be a frumpy single mom, not a wickedly smart, sexy redhead. Keeping nosey newshounds from discovering that his engagement is a charade is going to be a tough job, but one mind-blowing kiss from Sam and suddenly Jack is ready to put in all the overtime necessary…

Now, with scheming opponents itching to bring Jack down, Sam's ex returning to stir up trouble, one stubborn pre-schooler, two squabbling teenagers, a crazy dog, and some out-of-this-world sex, Jack and Sam are discovering that playing make-believe can be complicated--but not nearly as much as falling in love…
