A 2015 Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence finalist in the Contemporary Series category
Falling in love was never part of the plan…
Former Marine MacArthur Patton has made a small fortune on top-secret government contracts and black-ops missions, but his new assignment involves something more dangerous—marriage.
Well, fake marriage anyway.
To keep weapons out of the hands of terrorists, Mac has to secure a fiancée. A sweet, demure, compliant fiancée to serve as his arm candy for a few weeks while he completes the covert arms deal in Mexico. His sister claims to know just the woman, and sends her best friend to play the role.
“Sweet” and “demure” aren’t in Kelli Landers’s repertoire. A badass veterinarian who neuters big dogs and bigger men on a regular basis, she can’t wait to bring Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Detached to his knees. Her longtime crush on the commitment-phobe makes her plan to seduce him even sweeter.
Love wasn’t part of the plan, but the deeper Mac and Kelli fall into their ruse, the more danger they attract, until more than just their hearts are on the line…

You'll be well compensated for your time if you're willing to play the fiancee role for a few weeks. You just need to be compliant, soft-spoken, beautiful, sweet, demure, and drama-free."...more

Just an FYI, I didn't read the first book in the series, and I didn't feel like I missed anything by going straight in to this one.
Kelli gets propositioned by her BFF, Sheri, to be her brother Mac's fiancée for hire. He's a fancy shmancy military guy and for his latest... ...more
3.75 hilarious stars!
Okay. So I had to suspend my disbelief that a woman who is against marriage as Kelli would agree to be a fake fiancee to a bossy former marine Mac. The whole "cover" thing was a little lame but I'm chalking it up to me being nit-picky with details. Plus, the fact she had been... ...more
4 - "Absence makes the crotch grow fonder." Stars!
I absolutely loved Marine for Hire, the first book in Tawna Fenske’s Front and Centre series, and Fiancée for Hire lives up to the high standard of its predecessor.
”Here we go, big guy. We’ll get that pork sword back in place in no time.”

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2
Loved, loved, loved this book!! Finally a lead female has my name!!!! Now granted Tawna had to change the y to an i so that no one would suspect she based the character off me. Wait? What? You didn’t? Well dang.
LMAO! Oh my gosh -- I had the best kind of fun reading this hilariously funny and enticing story. My first book by Tawna Fenske set the bar high and I can't wait to read more. She definitely knows how to write the fun stuff and the sizzle and steam, too! ...more

When I requested both books in this series from NetGalley this was the one that interested me most. I knew they were standalones with a slight link but I wanted to read them in order so I had to wait a little longer to get to this book, which wasn't... ...more
So by the time I finished the first chapter I came to a fantastic conclusion. The heroine in this book, Kelli Landers? Yes, she is freakin' amazingly awesome. I want to be her friend, she has all the qualities of an amazing person. Kelli is confident - she stands up for herself from a client that... ...more
I loved this book, and I really loved Kelli, "meet?" she raised an eyebrow at him as she tucked her small hand in his and gave a ladylike shake. "We've met at least a hundred times, Mac. You put a band-aid on my knee when I was ten and you were this big, cool high schooler whose kid sister's trip... ...more

I had a serious problem with this book. It ended! What ever was Tawna Fenske thinking?
Ok, so I totally adored this one. Since I read Marine for Hire, I have been itching to get my hands on this one. And it totally delivered. Who else but Tawna Fenske can have an illicit arms dealer cooing over a... ...more
