Olivia Fortune Robinson has done some crazy things in her life, but this has to be one of the craziest. She has just propositioned sexy Alejandro Mendoza to be her pretend boyfriend for a week. What's even crazier? He said yes!

They're doing it all for Sophie—or so they think. Liv's cynical view of marriage accidentally convinced her little sister to call off her own wedding, and Liv has to fix things and quick. What better way than to "fall in love" herself? Tall, dark and alpha, Alejandro doesn't seem to mind having Liv on his arm—or in his bed. But when the two commitment-phobes suddenly become faux fiancés, Liv's traitorous heart starts to fall for real… Is Alejandro's far behind?

Fun, flirty, and forever! You are in for another memorable ride through the Austin elite when you open the latest Fortunes of Texas: The Secret Fortunes novel by Nancy Robards Thompson! The last trip there, little sis Sophie fell in love and this book brings us her wedding. We see mostly characters that are already familiar to us, but they’re always a fun group of family … we not only see the love of siblings, but a douse of reality with the stories of the not-so-great-example of love they’ve been shown over the years, and always a big dose of humor when this group gets together! Great characters, a fun continuous plot, and lots of happily-ever-afters!

Olivia Fortune Robinson would do anything for her siblings, but this time she might have taken it a little too far! When she inadvertently puts Sophie off on getting married a few days before the wedding, panic ensues! She might have been a little blunt, but how was she to know simply stating her disbelief in love and forever would send her little sister running for the hills? Now she has to fix it … and fast!

Alejandro Mendoza is simply an innocent bystander … in town for a business deal, and a friend of the family since two of his brothers are married to two of her sisters, but an unknown for sure. When sparks fly at that same disastrous party, Liv comes up with a plan. She’ll make Sophie think she was all of a sudden hit by the love bug … with Alejandro! Tell her sis a lie in order to get her to come out of hiding and go on with her wedding … sure … what could go wrong??
