Wealthy, sexy, and emotionally haunted Logan Knight needs a temporary wife to get his land, per his dad’s rules. No wife, no inheritance. But when that wife lands on his doorstep and comes with a baby, his darkest memories are triggered. He tries to keep his distance, but his efforts are shattered when he starts to have real feelings for his fake wife and child.
Just as Logan begins to think he may have a future with Becky, his attempt to have it all backfires into a betrayal that forces Becky into a heart-wrenching choice no woman should ever have to make.
USA Today Best Selling Award winning author Jennifer Apodaca grew up in Southern California and met her very own hero at the dog pound. She worked there, he came in on business, and it was puppy love. They married and had three wonderful sons. While her husband worked on his master's degree, Jen did the mom thing by day and went to college at night with the intention of pursuing a marketing degree. But her true passion was writing. With time at a premium, she had to make a choice. Choosing writing, and with the full support of her husband, she poured herself into her dream.
For Becky Holmes the term "happily ever after" no longer exists, at one point and time she thought she was on the cusp of finding it, then her abusive ex-boyfriend destroyed her hopes of having it. Now she is raising her child on her own, struggling to make ends meet, and is as happy as one can expect to be. Then her happy little world is turned upside down when her ex shows up on her doorstep, after serving only a few months of his sentence. He is trying to lay claim to the child they created, but honestly wants nothing to do with it.
Now to keep her child safe and out of his clutches she decides her only choice is to run... which takes her to a secluded cabin that belongs to a friend of her bosses. And directly into his protective arms...
Her Temporary Hero is a thrilling little page-turner brimming with action and heat, these two had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I really enjoyed this one, it had sweet and tender moments that squeezed the heart, steamy passionate moments to curl the toes, and dangerous action packed moments to keep me engaged. It made for a nice little afternoon escape from reality, highly recommend!
