About the book:
Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he's recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiancé. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother's upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn't like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma's offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home.
Emma's not interested in a real relationship either; not with a man whose idea of home is wherever he drops his duffel bag. No matter how amazing his "pretend" kisses are...
This is my second read of the Kowalski series. Yours to Keep is the story of Sean which is the cousin to Joe and Kevin from book one and two. Sean has just arrived home from the army, and has plans for seeing around the world. When a woman arrives on his front step with an absurd story about pretending to be his fiancé; he knows that life is about to take a drastic turn. As a family man he is well aware the struggles to keep loved one safe. When Emma tells him that she is worried about her Grandmother his sympathy overpowers his logic. So begins a month long stay in Emma’s home as her Fiancé. Little does either of them know that fate may have bigger plans, and a pretend relationship just may have been the first door. This is a very quick and enjoyable read. With a powerful and smoldering romance that will have readers craving just one more page.
