The wedding favor

When Ava McKenna left the neighborhood she grew up in, she never planned to look back. And for ten years she didn’t. Not until Mateo Ortega, the handsome and charming boy next door, showed up to ask for her help. Mateo needed a favor, actually he needed a pretend fiancée, and he thought Ava would be the perfect woman for the charade. Ava knew that she owed the Ortega family a favor but when she looked into Mateo’s gorgeous brown eyes she realized that repaying an old debt might jeopardize her heart.

Sales info:

The Wedding Favor is a short, traditional marriage of convenience romance novel. It is just under 40,000 words. The heat level is sweet with no graphic sex scenes. It was first published in early 2014 and has sold consistently since then. Several more books in a related series will be released in late 2014. This book is currently available in ebook and audiobook versions, with print soon to come. I would very much like to see it translated into other languages.

Sample text:

“I’ve got an offer here that you won’t be able to refuse.”

Ava McKenna smiled at the sound of her realtor’s enthusiastic tone. It wasn’t that the property in question had been on the market long. She’d only put her childhood home up for sale two weeks ago. So that meant the offer must be close to the asking price. She tried to muster the same enthusiasm she heard in the realtor’s voice but it wasn’t easy. Alone in the world, the house was all that tethered Ava to her childhood. Other people had aunts and uncles, cousins and extended families. She had a house.

            “Ava? Are you listening?”

            “Yes, I’m here.” Ava pulled into the reserved parking space in front of her office and switched off the convertible’s engine. “You have my full attention.”

            “Good. Now, I’ve got a cash offer for the full asking price. And, as we both know, you set the asking price well above the comps for the neighborhood so we should be pleased.”

            Pleased? Ava shifted in the seat. No, she wasn’t pleased. Or relieved. Or happy. She should be, of course, but she wasn’t.  “Can I have some time to think about this, Jessie?”
