Britta Bolton has known and loved Mav her whole life – as friends. She’s willing to be the friend he needs even if her own happiness is sacrificed.

She’s interested in dating someone else, but she promptly puts that plan on hold to come to the rescue of her best friend. She loves his company and they know each other inside and out. While a marriage of convenience isn’t what she really sees for herself, she’s more than willing to make this plan work for the guy who’s always been there for her.

Maverick Tucker is in a bit of a pickle. He’s ready for the promotion he’s worked so hard for at Bolton Farms but his father thinks he needs a wife before that promotion becomes a reality.

When Britta agrees to marry him and promises that their marriage will be permanent, he’s reluctant for only a moment. He’s actually relieved that his problem is solved. And marrying his best friend doesn’t sound half bad.

As they go through the motions of being engaged and making it seem real, things start to change. Mav sees that Britta may make more of a sacrifice than he can ask of her. She’s still all in for their plan, but he knows he should put a stop to it.

When he thinks of breaking their engagement off, his heart is wounded. He’s shocked at his feelings. Now he doesn’t know if he should let her go or fight for her.

Was their friendship always destined to become a true-to-life love story?

A shy woman. Her outdoorsy crush. And the bet that could bring them together…or implode spectacularly.

Nell Delaney will do almost anything for her parents and her two sisters. But enter a marriage of convenience to save the family’s coffee shop? Too far. So Nell and her sisters strike a deal: whoever hasn’t found love in thirty days has to step up to take one for the team. The good news? Nell knows the perfect guy to fall in love with. The bad news? She’s going to have to pretend she likes the outdoors…a lot.

Adventure guide Grant Williams knows immediately that Nell is not exactly Little Miss Outdoorsy. She’s a walking natural disaster—an amazingly adorable disaster. And whoa, their chemistry is unbelievable. Everything between them is so perfect, he’s not even a little bit shocked when he starts thinking of forever…

Right up until he catches the town gossiping about the Delaney sisters’ bargain and realizes she’s just using him to win a bet. His family’s unreliable reputation means he can’t just dump one of the town’s sweethearts. No, she needs to dump him. If she’s going to pretend to be the perfect doting bride, well, he’ll just pretend to be the worst bachelor on the market.

Let the games begin…
