A pleasant romance with a little suspense!
His Trophy Wife is a story on a marriage of convenience between Morganna Ashworth and Sloan Montgomery. Through trials and heartaches, Sloan and Morganna try to solve the mystery of who was framing Sloan for the fire at his business while keeping their distance from each other. Yet they both start to develop real feelings for each other. Despite the accusations and potential of jail time for Sloan, they come together to find the real culprit.
His Trophy Wife was a charming well-written story. This author really knows how to create a plot with suspense and romance keep me entertained and keep my interest piqued. The combination of drama, suspense and romance was captivating to where I didn’t want to put the book down. The characters were well developed and engaging. The author did a great job of creating scenes where I felt that I was right there in the story with them. I thought Leigh Michaels did a great job with the ending to the story.
Paula Slade did a great job with the narration. She had a clear and crisp voice that was easy to follow. The narrator did a good job with the distinct differences for each of the characters. Ms. Slade did well with bringing the story to life.
This is the first book that I have read by Leigh Michaels and will certainly not be my last. I recommend His Trophy Wife to anyone that enjoys a light read that will keep you entertained and have you believing that everyone can have their happily ever after.

Can A Mismatched Pair Find Romance
There were times that I wished I were more than a spectator watching the scenes go by. The author was great in creating them so that the reader can feel as if they are included in the world she has created.
Morganna has to be my favorite character. You think she is a compliant wife but then she surprises you. I loved when she gets frustrated with a gentleman that seems to expect (implied) them to do some of his work for him - especially when a mystery is afoot.
I don't know that it's one particular scene but my favorite part is when Morganna is creating her miniatures. We hear that people are enamored by what she has done and I find myself wanting to see what makes them so special.
There came a point when the mystery is solved that you have to get angry at the character that put our two main characters through a lot of pain. But then if it weren't for him, they probably wouldn't realize that they belong together.
Ms. Slade does a great job at narrating this story but I found it hard to picture her voice as Morganna. It felt more like my aunt was reading me the story than a beautiful sexy woman. She didn't try to change her voice too much in order to sound like Sloan which was a good thing. Her voice was great for Morganna's mother and would have actually loved to hear more of her. The only downside to the story was that I had a hard time picturing these two as a couple. I had no trouble seeing them as totally opposite from the other but to think of them as a couple was just not happening. This may be one of those stories where I need to use Whispersync. In the end, for me, the audio didn't live up to the blurb. I was expecting more.
I voluntarily reviewed an audio version of this book.
