From Single Mother...
Joe Riley is desperate. His well-meaning mother will stop at nothing to marry him off! With no time to date, let alone find a wife, Joe does the next best thing. He hires single mom Lisa Meyer to pose as his fiancée.
To Standby Bride?
When Lisa says yes to Joe, the hardworking caterer sees their arrangement strictly as a business deal. She pretends to be engaged to him; he accepts her bid to cater his year-end company party. It's a win-win. Until their feelings start getting in the way. Feelings that have nothing to do with business.
Can the town's most eligible bachelor convince his "fiancée" to take a chance on him and take that fateful walk down the aisle--together?
4 Stars--Romantic Times magazine
Lisa Meyer takes desperate measures when she agrees to pose as Joe Riley's fiancee. Lisa, a caterer with two kids, has been suffering financially and emotionally since her husband deserted her. Joe's only real emotional commitment is to his sick mother. Despite their differences, things heat up when Joe and Lisa are together. But the last thing Joe meant to do was fall in love with The Fake Fiancee (4). Megan Kelly's first-rate supporting characters and the genuine emotion of the couple will help readers remember the difficulty of learning to trust.
A cute sassy romance, THE FAKE FIANCEE, entertains as Joe and Lisa pretend their way to true love. Adorable kids, an interfering mother and best friend Ginger, who should have her own story, are all integral parts which add interest. Megan Kelly has created a “must read” with THE FAKE FIANCEE.
