Just because it's convenient doesn't mean it's easy. Book 2 of Jamesville. "So, will you marry me?" Although not a particularly romantic proposal, Rebecca Gentry seriously considers accepting because it comes from Jake Tanner, the man who she's secretly loved for years. Rebecca has been alone for most of her life, but she's made a life she's content with. She has her own sewing business, a lovely apartment, and a few good friends. But it's her special friendship with Jake that has always been most important to her. Now, he is proposing a marriage of convenience as he finds himself in need of a wife to help him raise his orphaned niece. Convinced that she can teach him to share a real marriage rather than one of convenience, she agrees to his offer. But, becoming a family is not an easy journey for any of them. Both she and Jake have their own insecurities and challenges to overcome if their marriage is to have a chance to survive. But unforeseen problems test their new relationship and threaten to destroy what they've just begun to build.
