By Mutual Consent

by Tracey Richardson

Dr. Joss McNab needs a wife.

As if juggling surgery and being an instructor isn’t enough, she’s recently taken on a more demanding administrative role at the medical school that was named after her legendary father. To make things worse, she’s now required to attend a growing number of galas, fundraisers and conventions.

Wouldn’t having a wife—a wife of convenience—help ease the burden that’s threatening to overtake her world?

Sarah Young’s heart belongs to painting. Much as she’d like to dismiss Joss’s ridiculous proposal, the art world isn’t paying well and she’s running short on cash. Playing a trophy wife a few hours a week would cover her bills and still leave plenty of time to devote to her artwork.

The deal is struck. But will the convenient pairing turn into disaster or prove to be a stroke of genius? With feelings deepening and attraction undeniable, can two women who have agreed to settle discover that they could actually have it all?

The Lesbian Review
Audio Book Review -...pulls off an interesting twist on a marriage of convenience story by simultaneously turning the rich girl/poor girl theme on its head. Richardson has outdone herself with this work and I adored every well written word. It is right up there on my must-read list of lesbian romances. As always, Lori Prince does a bang-up job of the narration. She differentiates the characters well and brings that certain something I always love when I listen to her reading a book. 

Books on Fire
…Richardson gives us masterful moments of exquisite sensuality counterbalanced with frustrating silence or miscommunication from these characters to create heated tension. Throughout this tale, the main characters are compelling and the narrative is filled with passion and poetry. The reader is sure to delight in the spark and sizzle of this tantalizing story.

Lesbian Reading Room
…the story is good, the characters are interesting and the plot a slightly unusual twist on the normal lesfic romance. Definitely an enjoyable read and another well written romance from a solid and reliable author.

The Lesbian Review
I love it. Tracey Richardson pulls off an interesting twist on a marriage of convenience story by simultaneously turning the rich girl/poor girl theme on its head. It has everything I want in a romance novel: lots of feelings, hot sex, a story that makes the pages turn quickly.
