Dr. Joss McNab needs a wife. As if juggling surgery and being an instructor isn't enough, she's recently taken on a more demanding administrative role at the medical school that was named after her legendary father. To make things worse, she's now required to attend a growing number of galas, fundraisers, and conventions. Wouldn't having a wife--a wife of convenience--help ease the burden that's threatening to overtake her world? Sarah Young's heart belongs to painting. Much as she'd like to dismiss Joss's ridiculous proposal, the art world isn't paying well and she's running short on cash. Playing a trophy wife a few hours a week would cover her bills and still leave plenty of time to devote to her artwork. The deal is struck. But will the convenient pairing turn into disaster or prove to be a stroke of genius? With feelings deepening and attraction undeniable, can two women who have agreed to settle discover that they could actually have it all?
