A fan-favorite story from bestselling Harlequin American Romance author Cathy Gillen Thacker! This marriage is anything but convenient! Dillon Gallagher felt he had an obligation to help Hayley Alexander, his friend's widowed wife. So when she mentioned wanting a real home for her baby daughter, it seemed only natural to have them move into his large house. In exchange for a place to stay, Hayley could cook and clean. What she ends up doing is tearing apart his fixer-upper! Living in such close quarters in a small town is all too much for local gossips. To curb the wagging tongues, Dillon proposes they marry–just until the renovations are complete. Then Hayley will buy the house from the undomesticated Dillon, and he can go back to his bachelor ways. But there's something about playing family that makes Dillon think he's ready to fall for his temporary honeymoon with Hayley–permanently!
