From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Marquita Valentine, comes the Brides of Holland Springs, a sweetly sexy series set in the town that readers have come to love.

Haven Crawford needs a husband--but only temporarily--in order to keep her grandparents' inn in the family. Her well-meaning, but old-fashioned grandparents' will requires her to marry if she wants to keep running Chesson House. But, the last person she'd ask to help is her childhood enemy, Heath Ambrose. Unfortunately, he's the only one she can trust to keep his promise to divorce her and not take the inn when he leaves.

Star catcher, Heath Ambrose needs relief from his meddling mother and the jet-set lifestyle that accompanies his sudden rise to fame as the face of the newest national baseball team, the Greenville Pirates. As the last single Ambrose sibling, his mother is determined to marry Heath off, but he's not ready to settle down. Especially not after watching the woman he loved run off to Scotland with another man. So when Haven proposes, Heath jumps at the chance for some peace in his life.

Only a temporary marriage to Haven is anything but peaceful--not to mention that they can't keep their hands off one another. But, when the will's conditions have been fulfilled and baseball season starts up again, will Heath and Haven be able to say goodbye when hate turns to love?

Or can temporary turn into forever?

The Temporary Bride is the second book in The Brides of Holland Series. I'm loving this series from Marquita Valentine.  In this story Haven needs a husband fast in order to meet the requirements of her grandparent's trust. These requirements will keep Haven's home from being sold out from under her, but who to choose is the problem. When Heath comes home for some much needed family time during his vacation all he wants is for him mother to stop trying to set him up with every single woman that lives in their town. Not only is it embarrassing, but Heath doesn't think that he is ready to marry anyone yet. Haven and Heath have had a love hate relationship for fifteen years. It has seemed more like hate than love, but Haven knows that no matter how badly they get along she can always trust Heath so asking him to marry her makes perfect sense.  Heath thinks it's a win win relationship. It will help Haven keep her home and get his mother off his back about marrying someone. Who would have thought that all of that love hate confusion would combust into an attraction that is all consuming? I can't wait for the next book in this series. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.   Lori P
