A sweet category romance from Entangled's Bliss imprint...

Hottie for hire...

Maddie McCarthy is single, between jobs, and (oh, the shame) lives with her mother. To make matters worse, she's the maid of honor for her sister's wedding, and desperately needs a date. Then she sees her salvation-Match Made Easy, a service for women in Maddie's exact position. If she can't find a boyfriend, she'll do the next best thing...

Hire one.

Trent Montgomery isn't actually part of Match Made Easy. He's just doing a favor for his cousin, but one look at the blonde who hired him, and he's totally hooked. Now Maddie thinks that the attraction sizzling between them is just "part of the package." And Trent is running out of time to prove to her that her date-for-hire might just be her happily-ever-after...

Teaser: Excerpt

     Fortunately, he found her five seconds later. The woman wasn't anywhere near halfway to Maine, but by all accounts, she was about halfway from an embarrassing 911 call.
     "What do you think you're doing?" he barked, coming up behind her.
     Maddie—whose forearm was wedged up one of his vending machine drop slots—lifted her pert nose at him as if she were royalty and he a common serf. "I'm retrieving my Diet Coke, thank you very much."
     He smothered a grin. "Well, before you can retrieve your soda, you must first insert your money."
     She huffed out an exaggerated breath. "I understand that, Captain Obvious, and I already did. This stupid machine moved the can just close enough not to fall. It's probably the owner's way of getting extra money."
     He bit down on his tongue at that remark, considering he was the owner.
     Maddie shoved her arm farther up the slot. "I almost have it."
     "Will you take your arm out of there before we have to saw it off?"
     Fire sprung in those blue eyes of hers, making her look even more adorable, he decided. Like angry Tinker Bell. "Don't tell me what to do."
     Trent gazed heavenward. Great. Not only would he have to place that 911 call when her arm got stuck, but then he'd probably have to call his attorney, too, for when she sued him. It wasn't such a wonder anymore why she needed help getting that wedding date. This woman was trouble with a capital T.
     Trying a different tactic, he gently placed a hand on her shoulder and leaned in. "You're right. It's none of my business. Stay in that position all day if you want. The guy on treadmill number two is getting quite the view. One more deep squat and I guarantee he'll be asking for your number."
     "What?" Cheeks on fire, she sprung up. She glanced behind her then turned toward him with narrowed eyes. "Hey, that was a dirty trick. There's no guy over there."
     "No, but if there were he would have been treated to a dazzling display of hot pink thong. Not to mention that I'm sure my ‘dirty trick’ just saved you at least eight weeks of physical therapy. And by the way, you're welcome."

Fiance by Fate [1]

Their fake relationship is a twist of fate.

Sabrina Cassidy believes in fate. So when her fiancé breaks off their engagement, she’s convinced they’ll get back together eventually. But fate was not on her side when it brought Jack Brenner into her life—and work. Frustrating, gorgeous, and cocky, Jack has an offer that Sabrina can't refuse. Not if it means getting the life she’s always imagined.

Despite being one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, Jack has a reputation that’s working against him. He has to convince his father—and his company’s board—that he’s ready to settle down if he wants a promotion. But convincing Sabrina to be his fake girlfriend turns out to be the easiest part. What he didn’t count on was their intense attraction and how easily their lie would escalate. Sabrina’s still hung up on her ex, and Jack will never settle down. But fate has other ideas…
