He’s going in deep to make her his…

Struggling artist Sheridan Harper never imagined she’d spend a sizzling night with Jared Quinn, the smoking-hot star quarterback of her local professional football team, the San Jose Hawks. And she’s even more shocked when Jared’s publicist offers her a proposition: a fake marriage to keep Jared out of the gossip mags. Being that close to Jared would be too tempting, so to protect her heart, she insists on secretly including a clause forbidding sex between them.

Jared just wants to keep his starting QB job and keep it in San Jose. His reputation as a ladies’ man has landed him in the headlines one too many times, but there’s something about his kind, passionate new wife that tempts him beyond reason. Any sort of intimacy between them is completely forbidden, but as their bodies fall in deep, will their hearts follow suit?

REVIEW:

Karen Erickson is bringing her brand of sexy back! Jane's Gift, her first book with Entangled Publishing was sweet and sensual but good gosh almighty! Game for Marriage had my palms sweating, giggling hysterically, sighing and ugly crying at the moment. I can't wait for more smexiness from Karen.

Step aside Tom and Katie! The Mighty Jared Quinn, hottie quarterback and girl who needs money Sheridan Harper will give you a run for your title of Mr. and Mrs. We're Totally Not Together But Have A Contract That Says So!

Dearest Gossip Readers,

A little birdie told me that San Jose Hawks Jared Quinn, yes, the Mighty Jared Quinn, is in a marriage of convenience to try to clean up his bad boy image. Squeaky clean Sheridan Harper is just the girl for the job.

Jared was last seen hosting the former Mrs. Craig Wallace on his lap at a club and a few days later, he's officially a homewrecker. Of course he's in denial but with his womanizing reputation, who would believe his denial? Not this girl! At least when the scandal broke out.

Enter struggling artist Sheridan Harper to the rescue. She looks like a total Suzie Homemaker and well, her grandmother's studio is in financial decline. How much money would you sell yourself for to keep a legacy running? A large enough sum will for a marriage of convenience, that's how much. And seriously, who would say no to spending a year with Jared Quinn? If you say not you, you're in some major denial. I know you spend your days Googling him. *evil laughter*

I've been told that PR shark Harvey Price negotiated this deal along with entertainment lawyer Walter Cavanaugh. One year, no sex-clause. Jared's not going to like it! But if it cleans up his image, new team owner Charlie Monroe definitely loves it. Monroe is apparently going on a team image clean up rampage. Watch out!

Just like any good fake marriage, Jared and Sheridan try to ham it up for the public and when at home, go their separate ways. Of course, any good romance reader knows that after sharing one night of mindblowing, dirty, sweaty smexiess thinking it was a one-night stand, Fate has other things in store. Oopsie!

But a certain source claims Jared and Sheridan finally do the down and dirty. Couldn't keep your hands and other parts off each other could ya? If you won't tell, we won't :)

Last week, Sheridan was caught without her super sparkler (that sucker is HUGE!). Is there trouble in paradise? Certainly hope not. This girl is rooting for a HEA. I'm a sucker for that.

Until next time,
xoxo Romance Girl

P.S. Another source tells me that a certain BFF of Sheridan's is carrying on an on-again, off-again something or other (we don't know what to classify it as) with a certain BFF of Jared's. Could get pretty interesting. We can't wait to find out more about this couple.


FAVORITE QUOTE:
The Might Jared Quinn was a fucking superstar. His star might be a little tarnished, but she was just the right amount of shine to make him bright again.
He hoped.
