His father isn’t.
Book Description: The Menace Takes a Bride

California 1895

Garth Wakefield may be pushing thirty, but he’s not about to settle for just any wife, in spite his father’s claim that unmarried men over the age of twenty-five are a menace to society. Garth knows he’s anything but a menace; he owns a lucrative business, is an honest and upstanding citizen, and would never dream of misleading any of his female friends.

When it comes to matters of the heart, he wants it all. Passion, enduring love, and happily-ever-after. When Garth’s impatient father forges a paper marriage, Garth suddenly finds himself saddled with a bride. Worse, Mitzi has full control of his fortune and business.

While Garth works desperately to free himself, his delightful bride entwines their lives and hearts until he can’t bear to see her go. He’s found everything he’s ever wanted in the most unlikely of people, his own not-completely-legally-wed wife. But can he convince Mitzi to marry him all over again, for love this time, before she learns the marriage is a hoax?

The Menace Takes a Bride is a full-length historical romance of approximately 92,000 words (365 paperback pages).

This is a stand-alone sweet romance, complete with hard-earned happy ending. It is the first book in the Husband-Maker Trilogy.
