About the Author

NY Times bestselling author Charlotte Hughes published her first category romance in 1987, a Bantam Books Loveswept, titled Too Many Husbands, which immediately shot to #1 on the Waldenbooks Bestseller list. She went on to write almost thirty books before the line closed in 1998. Although Charlotte is widely known for her laugh-out-loud romantic comedies, she went on to pen three Maggie-Award winning thrillers for Avon Books in the late nineties, before resuming her first love, funny stories about people falling in love. She thrilled readers with her hilarious books, A New Attitude and Hot Shot, the latter of which won the Waldenbooks Greatest Sales Growth Achievement in 2003. Her books received so many accolades that she was invited to co-author the very popular Full House series with mega-star author Janet Evanovich. With that series behind her, Charlotte began her own, starring psychologist Kate Holly; What Looks Like Crazy, Nutcase, and High Anxiety, creating a list of somewhat kooky but always loveable and funny ensemble characters.

Juggling her time between work and studies, Frannie receives a letter from the child she abandoned thirteen years ago. This leads to lies, deceit, and... a newfound love perhaps?

As Frannie sugarcoats her life to her daughter Mandy, she founds herself in a situation that was to expose her insecurities. The Colemans, the well-known, well-off family in town, offers her a solution she couldn't refuse - even if it meant having to pretend to be Clay's wife. As the three play pretend to be a family, the whole charade seems to be taking a toll on Frannie and Clay's hearts that they couldn't help but grow fond of each other despite the circumstances.

Husband Wanted is another masterpiece from Charlotte Hughes. It's a quick read, but it's nothing short of amazing. Like most of her previous works, the dialogues are humorous and I couldn't help but giggle.

I can relate to the heroine so much. She's realistic and thinks things through. It's understandable that she has reservations, but when she knows what she wants, then she'll go head-on. What I like most about Clay is his sincerity. In a plot full of lies, he has been honest with her and it's really charming.

All in all, it's sweet, surprising, and satisfying! I will surely read it over and over.

Frannie had to give up her daughter for adoption, and now 13 years later her daughters sought her out. They have been exchanging letters and Frannie has been lying about herself.
Walter Coleman and Frannie's friends help her make her lies a truth. Now she just needs a husband to make it all complete.
Walter ropes in his son Cole to play Frannie's husband.
It was a short, fast paced read and even with all the lies there was no major angst or drama. In short it was sweet, funny, emotional, overall a complete entertainer.

Thirteen years ago Frannie gave her newborn up for adoption. Now her daughter Mandie has found her and wants to come visit. Since Frannie had lied in her letters to Mandie, she must now look like she has a successful life with a husband. That’s when Walter Coleman, a steady customer from her waitressing job, steps in. Not only does he offer his mansion for the ruse, but he also talks his son Clay into pretending to be Frannie’s husband. But once the farce begins, so does the heat between Frannie and Clay.

Although the plot is predictable, it doesn’t take anything away from the story. It was a fun, lighthearted read. I loved all the quirky axioms that Frannie was always saying. They were totally representative of her character. The chemistry between Frannie and Clay had me turning the pages as fast as I could. I like the writing style of this author, and will definitely read more of her books.

This book was a short light read. Perfect for vacation (beach read), that is quick and easy.
The plot is unrealistic, but it is fiction so that is okay. The ending is the happy ever after most of us like.

This was a sweet & quick read that I really enjoyed. It told the story of Frannie reconnecting with her daughter Mandy that she had given up for adoption at her birth. This story is much like my own so it was even more personal to read. It was so heartwarming to see the HEA but I did feel that some of the intense emotions that occur with this situation were over simplified.

For such a short book the characters had a lot of depth & the author included a great deal of backstory which really added to the entire storyline.

All in all a good read. I will be checking out more by Charlotte Hughes
