A Deal with the Devil - Overview
In this lighthearted romantic drama/comedy, a practical, responsible Chicago career woman agrees to pose as the fiance of her ex boyfriend in exchange for money. It's a fast-paced listen with many plot twists and a romance that veers toward the sweet side. The audiobook is the first in a series about a group of friends and the mayhem, mishaps and misadventures they encounter on their journey toward love.
A woman in trouble.
Amanda Wilson is in trouble and as usual, it has everything to do with her irresponsible brother. So she heads to her best friend's cabin in Lake Geneva for a weekend of solitude and soul-searching. But she didn't count on the blizzard or the unexpected arrival of the man who broke her heart. The man she's come to think of as the devil.
A man from her past.
Fresh out of the Navy SEALs, Jake Lowell plans to start a business using his trust fund as seed money. But his grandfather has other ideas and changed the terms, requiring Jake to marry before he gets access. Now he needs a plan. But first, he must go to Lake Geneva where his ex is vacationing, ignoring the weather bulletins and her best friend's calls, pleading with her to come home.
A deal that changes everything.
Getting stranded in Lake Geneva wasn't part of Jake's plan. Neither was his proposal. And he definitely hadn't expected her to agree, but she did. Now they must deal with unresolved feelings and the issues that tore them apart a year ago. Jake's proposal seemed like the perfect solution for both of them but it's soon clear their harmless little engagement deal is far more complicated than either could have imagined.
