Philanthropic billionaire, Lathan Kincaid, needs a wife. Now. He’s got seventeen days to woo and wed, or risk losing his trust fund and a controlling interest in the family business—and without those, he’ll miss the balloon payment on the project dearest to his heart: a school he’s funding in Kenya to honor his deceased brother. The clock is ticking, and Lathan will do anything to find a wife, even make a deal with the firecracker of a female who shows up in the tow truck to rescue his Porsche.
Jacqueline “Jack” Price refuses to get sucked into anyone’s family drama—especially not the sexy playboy with bedroom eyes and a crazy pickup line. Working day and night to earn enough to care for her father, who has Alzheimer’s, Jack has no time to play house with a desperate billionaire. But when Lathan sweetens the pot with the promise of money to provide her father the best of care, Jack swallows her pride and agrees to the soulless terms: marriage for a minimum of one year in exchange for her father’s comfort.
Lathan and Jack know from the outset that the foundation of their marriage is built in sinking sand. But as Jack locks up her heart to protect herself, Lathan opens his, understanding that the only thing he wants is the one thing his billions can’t buy: Forever . . . with Jack.
