The Bachelor's Bed by Jill Shalvis
The hero, Colin, askes the heroine, Lani, to pretend to be engaged to him to get his mom to stop trying to fix him up so he can work on an invention without distractions.

I am pleased to say that she has come a long way since this!
Look for Jill's latest, ONE IN A MILLION, on shelves and e-readers now, and get all her bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold.
