Married to Maggie by Jan Romes
With a little help from the most unusual sources Maggie and Ty just might make it to the altar on time! Don’t miss this fun and flirty, yet intricate and twisting, soiree with a Texas playboy who’s falling fast!
Texas playboy, Ty Vincent, heir to the Vincent Oil fortune needs a short-term wife to convince his grandfather and the Board of Directors that he’s changing his ways so they’ll name him CEO. Ditching an environmental conference in Atlanta to play in Reno, Ty suffers razor-sharp chest pains at the airport.
The pains were becoming a common occurrence that started showing up after he lost his father in a fiery crash a year earlier. The woman who comes to his aid not only helps him with what she can only assume is a heart attack but she also fibs to keep airport security and paparazzi from descending on him. She’s brilliant, unemployed and not his type which makes her the perfect choice for a temporary spouse. If he can ignore her extraordinary blue eyes then everything will go according to plan.
Cardiac rehab nurse, Maggie Gray finds herself the victim of hospital downsizing. When T. Loy Vincent, I, a former patient, offers her a million dollars to get his grandson under control, Maggie is pressured by her father to enter into the wife-for-hire scheme. All she has to do is convince Ty Vincent to marry her.
When she tracks Ty down at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport to put things in motion, she finds him in the middle of chest issues. The nurse in her takes over and before she knows it she’s eyebrow deep in yet another deal. The second she says yes to both agreements, her life is turned upside down. To top it off, she can’t seem to curb an annoying attraction for Dallas’s most famous womanizer.
Six months. No Sex. No telling each other what to do. It should be a win-win for them both. Will the mayhem of wealth, media attention, meddlesome friends and chemistry so hot it could melt plastic ruin their lives? Or will it be the catalyst for happily-ever-after?

Review by Sugar:
I was excited to see another new release from Jan Romes in 2013. I downloaded it immediately and of course she drew me in on page one. Who wouldn’t be when a hot guy is hiding out in an airport from the paparazzi only to be helped by a most unusual woman.
Maggie Gray is a recently unemployed cardiac nurse who wasn’t looking to get involved in the oil heir’s business, until she witnessed him nearly collapse. The nurse in her kicks in, and before you can say ‘y’all’ she’s being sucked into Ty Vincent’s plans to convince his grandfather he’s got the right stuff to take over the reins. Little does Ty know, Maggie already know his grandfather, well.
The next week is a whirlwind of lies, scotch, rings, belly dancing, parties, capers, stolen kisses, missed opportunities and more twists and turns than your favorite corn maze in the middle of Ohio. Will Ty find out Maggie’s plan? Will Maggie find out Loy’s plan? Will Loy find out Ty and Maggie’s plan? Will love win out?
Once again I found myself reading this late into the night and loving every minute of it! With a little help from the most unusual sources Maggie and Ty just might make it to the altar on time! Don’t miss this fun and flirty, yet intricate and twisting, soiree with a Texas boy who’s falling fast!
Review by Kim Pitbull 123:
I can’t say enough about this book. At first glance your thinking you know how the story goes, well you don’t. The Vincent’s are oil tycoons, there’s TY Vincent the first(grandfather) TY Vincent the second, was killed in a limo accident, TY Vincent the third, playboy extraordinaire. Maggie Gray an innocent nurse gets caught up in a proposal from both Vincent’s.
Maggie’s father Richland was in on it to. I fell in love with the characters, I felt I knew them and was involved with every conversation they had, like I was right there. Only a great author can make you feel that way. Is there more to Tysen the third other than being a playboy? Maggie will find out, her father said he owed Tysen the first, Maggie figured from gambling, so she takes Tysen up on his proposal.
Tysen wants Maggie to marry his grandson to stop his playboy ways and step up to run the company after he retires. Maggie agrees because she has lost her job and wants to help her dad. Tysen the third was at a airport trying to get away from the paparazzi when he got chest pains and Maggie was there to help him( she knew where he was going to be because of Tysen the first telling her).
Tysen had no idea about the agreement with Maggie and his grandfather. Tysen doesn’t want help and tells Maggie to leave him alone, the nurse in her wouldn’t let that happen, as she’s getting him up Tysen sees Chaz, ( the paparazzi)Maggie realizes what’s happening and protects Tysen from Chaz. Tysen decides he would also propose a deal with Maggie to marry him so his grandfather and the board of trustees would get off his back.
He thought she had backbone and would go along with his proposal, after all he’s Tysen Vincent the third, very sexy, smooth and gets what he want with women. He doesn’t know Maggie. This is definitely one of my favorite reads now. I’ve found a new favorite author to, I’ve read one of Jan’s other books and enjoyed that to. Very well written stories. I will miss these characters!
