No Sex Necessary by Jane Beckenham

No Sex Necessary by Jane Beckenham

ISBN: 978-1-60435-115-6

Cole Charteris hires Tara Palmer, after she answers an ad to pose as his fiancee. He needs her to close a lucrative business deal and keep him out of the clutches of a maneater while she needs money to take care of her ailing father. One condition of the contract they sign is NO SEX! But Cole is more than willing to overlook that little clause. Perfect right? or will they end up falling in love?

Cole has tried to stay as far away from the word marriage as possible. His parents were poor examples for him and he made himself a promise he would never fall in love. Tara has been married once before to a mentally, physically and verbally abusive man who ran her father's company into the ground and lost all their money. He constantly told her she wasn't any good at sex. Everything is going along fine until the maneater and ex-husband join forces against them.

Jane Beckenham writes some interesting characters. Both have been through much in their lives and it's difficult for them to give their trust to others. I wanted to reach out and smack both the intruders to the relationship. If you're looking for interesting, complex characters, this is the book for you.
