Amanda has been appointed principal of the junior high school in her small community. But this promotion will surely be withdrawn if the school board discovers that she is pregnant and unmarried. When an old friend introduces Amanda to a handsome young man, she makes a very unusual business arrangement with him: in exchange for a generous fee, he will be her "husband" until the baby is born. The arrangement seems perfect--until an attraction grows between them that begins to radically change their desires. Gwynne Forster’s best-selling African-American romances have touched the hearts of millions of readers, and Kim Staunton’s narration adds pure bliss to this story of longing, loving, and learning to care.
