Since my mother-in-law has been buying Harlequin Romance novels for well over twenty years, I am sure somewhere along the way I have read Joanne Rock in the past. Normally, this wouldn't have been the type of book I would have read. The cover photo didn't grab me, nor did the blurb particularly. In this case, it was the authors personal invitation to review.
I am glad I did. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read with well developed characters in the length of time given. Ballerina Sofia is mistaken for the youngest McNeil's mail-ordered bride, but in truth her father was trying to arrange a marriage for her only without her consent. Enter Quinn McNeil to save the day. The elder McNeil, who always seemed more level-headed than his impulsive younger brother, immediately fell for Sophia. The sparks and attraction are real and he'll do everything to convince her to give him a chance.
A sweet, loving romance with plenty of heat and tension.

A mix-and-match mock engagement?
Ballerina Sofia Koslov's career is on the line when she's accosted at the airport by a rich, reckless playboy who thinks she's his mail-order bride! But the playboy's levelheaded brother, Quinn McNeill, solves the media snafu with a switcheroo. He'll pretend to be her legitimate fiancé to protect her reputation—and to protect his family's business deals from her father's wrath. Sofia's one condition: they'll share the spotlight as a loving couple but won't share a bed. But soon Quinn's gentlemanly ways strike a chord, and Sofia's dying to renege on that condition and have a real fling…
