BORROWING ALEX: Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula, Washington state
"Lovers of comedic romance featuring dogs and cats--and garter snakes!--will lap up BORROWING ALEX. Five woofs!" Allie McBeagle
She'll return him eventually. Or maybe not.
Nikki St. James wants to get married more than anything. But what's she to do when her fiancé spends his days sucking up to her rich father instead of helping with the simple task of, oh, setting a date? Why...fake a fling with the best man, of course!
Nikki is the first to admit that ambushing Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is a tad desperate. But maybe pretending she's hot for the handsome history professor will kick-start the attention of her future groom. Besides, a sojourn at a lakeside cabin is exactly what uptight Alex needs. Not that Nikki cares what he needs or how sexy he is....
Alex is not on-board with Nikki's plan. Yeah, he'd love a break from his quest to achieve tenure at warp speed, but getting kidnapped by a crazy blonde hardly tops his to-do list. If what he's heard is true and Nikki is perfectly happy with her "open" engagement to his former college roommate, why bother getting married?
Quickly, he realizes Nikki isn't a wild party girl at all. She's cute, sweet—and faithful. Against his common sense, he's falling for her. Should he spill the beans about her cheating fiancé? Or will he ruin his own chance for a happy ending?
