Pretenses Abound!

Give me the author name, the title, and the character name, and guess what you’ll get! No, really, guess!

Business-savvy widow, hiding out in the typing pool, seeks hot studly bo-jillionaire to lie to me and whisk me off to stand in a wedding. All that nuptial romance should lead to a little hot naked snake action, which in turn brings declarations of lifelong commitment, without either party coming clean about our true intentions. Now if that’s not the foundation of a trusting loving relationship, I don’t know what is.


General Bitching...

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this is talking about Karen Lawrence from “Just Curious” a short story by Jude Deveraux in the anthology “A Gift of Love.”

    I’m throwing this out there even though I am sure there wasn’t a wedding in sight.

    Judith McNaught’s Double Standards, Heroine – Lauren Danner

    THEN someone mentions a wall bathroom scene and I’m all

    Linda Howard’s Shades of Twilight Roanna Davenport.

    Crap, I’m never gonna get one of these.

    Sara’s got it, I believe.  It’s one of many in Jude’s famous “marry the one that can tell the twins apart’ schtick.  He was a Taggert, yes?
