Editorial Reviews


"What a fantastically fun, tugs-at-your-heartstrings read!" ~ USA Today Bestseller Whitney Dineen
"Witty, heartwarming, and with just a hint of spice, Melanie Summers hits it out of the park with this one!"
~ International Bestselling Author Kelly Collins
"Fake marriage? Castle? Uber hot British guy? Yes, I think I will." ~ 
USA Today Bestseller Kate O'Keeffe
"If there is an author who knows how to put a smile on my face, it's Melanie Summers! Her stories are always the light-heart, fun, happy books that I love reading!" ~
What Emily is Reading
"Melanie Summers is a gifted writer. Her books are filled with humor, excitement and great characters. This Canadian chick rocks. Can't wait for her next book." ~
Krista W.
"I absolutely adored this funny, sweet fake relationship romance, which featured likeable, three-dimensional characters and an engaging plot." ~
Laurie Reads Romance
"Light, breezy and whimsical, this story of upper-crust Brit Hayden and his marriage of convenience to wannabe art historian Finley was a blast!" ~ 
Avid Reader
"Unique, funny, and even heartbreaking at times are all words I would use to describe this book. The fake marriage troupe is done nicely and authentically." ~
Cali Girls
"This was a terrific, swoony romance with all the humor I've come to expect from Summers." ~
Michelle Reads Romance
"HOW is this my first Melanie Summer's book? The cover looked cute and the summary seemed fun, so I knew I would like it. I was unprepared, however, for how much utter delight this book brought!" ~ 
"A great love story that will make you laugh out loud, cry out loud and wish for true love at the end." ~

Melanie Summers is a multi-award-winning, Amazon best-selling author of romantic comedies and women’s fiction. She’s written over thirty books for people who have had it up to here with the real world and need to laugh, feel good, and sigh happily. When she’s not writing, she can be found either out for a walk somewhere nature-y with her two dogs and her husband or soaking in a hot bath (i.e., hiding from her three teenage children). Melanie resides on Vancouver Island, Canada where her life goal is to become one of those fabulous people who take daily ice baths in the ocean. So far, she can get in up to her ankles, which is not awful, thank you very much.
