Today is the re-release of my first published book Fiancé for the Night. The rights reverted back to me in 2016. I finally had time to go through it and update the story published back in 1999. I'll be writing a post next week about that experience! Needless to say, by the time I finished my “update,” I'd rewritten much of the book and added 8000 new words. I hope you enjoy this new version!


She needs a fiancé—for only one night.

Cassandra Daniels' parents refuse to accept that she doesn't need a boyfriend to be happy. To stop their meddling and matchmaking, Cassandra creates a fictional fiancé, a man who sounds so unlike their carefree and unconventional daughter that her mom and dad want to meet him for dinner, immediately.

No problem. San Francisco is a big city. Finding a fiancé won't be that hard.

All Troy McKnight wants is a beer after a long day at work. But when a pretty blonde asks him to dinner and wants him to pretend to be her fiancé, Troy agrees to help. Playing make-believe could be fun, especially since he gets a free meal, and he'll have a great story to tell.

When one lie leads to another, however, the fake engagement spirals into real wedding plans. Cassandra and Troy must stop the madness and put an end to their charade. But what if her fiancé for the night is the perfect husband for life?
