Julia Moore has no interest in romance -- she's busy raising her son, starting a new career, and mending a broken heart.She certainly never expected a marriage proposal from her boss, gorgeous "playboy politician" Adam Carmichael. Too bad it's only a marriage of convenience, meant to help him win the governor's race. Adam's touch sets Julia's heart racing. Every public kiss is both a tease and a torment. For his part, Adam finds that he can't keep his hands off his lovely new bride. Neither can deny the physical attraction,especially after they both succumb to a steamy night together. But Adam still isn't convinced that their marriage can ever be more than a publicity stunt. When Julia's young son is abducted, the truth will have to come out. But will all of the secrets and lies break Julia's heart -- again?
3 out of 5 (good)
The Candidate's Wife is set in the political arena of an election for a new Governor. Adam has been dubbed the Playboy Politician due to him having a different woman on his arm every time. So the answer to this is to recruit Julia as his wife. The whys and wherefores are gone into so I won't bother going into that again.
On this whole, this is a sweet romance with a dash of heat. Julia is more than Adam thought she would be, and Julia has long admired Adam's political stance so it doesn't take much to become admiration for the man as well. With a bit of family suspense as well as political drama thrown in, this book has something for everyone.
Well written, with few editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this book was enjoyable. Their relationship moved a bit quickly for me though - from not knowing each other to professing undying love in three weeks. On the whole, an enjoyable read.
