A fun and sexy "marriage of convenience" romance. Fox Wilde loves working at Aqua Blue, his seafood restaurant in Doubtless Bay, New Zealand. But when he lands an interview for head chef at the famous Rutland's Restaurant in Auckland, the opportunity to work at the exclusive hotel is too good to turn down. At the interview, the head of the family-run firm makes his old-fashioned standards very clear. Put on the spot, Fox mistakenly invents a fiancee, and then compounds the problem by giving the name of his sexy but volatile friend, Caitlin. Now, Fox has to work out how to convince Caitlin to go along with the ruse and come with him to meet the Rutlands on Halloween. The last thing on Caitlin Baker's mind is a long term relationship. After years of putting up with a strict father and a jealous, possessive ex, she's desperate for some freedom and independence. So when the impertinent Fox announces their sudden engagement, she's tempted to tell him to stick it where the sun doesn't shine. But Caitlin has a secret. She's had a thing for Fox since the first time she met him, ten years ago, at another Halloween costume party. Fox doesn't remember her, luckily, as her father ended their steamy clinch with a thermonuclear meltdown from which Fox barely escaped with his life. She feels she owes him. But that entails pretending they're a couple, which means sharing a room. And that's never going to end well. Warning: Contains fireworks. Read with caution-preferably while wearing safety goggles. Adults only."
