Lexi Titan can just see the headlines. All of Titanville will be buzzing. Not that she has any other choice. Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars, she is out of options. Marry Cruz Rodriguez or lose everything - the successful day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father's respect. And the long-standing competition with her sisters for the family business.
Cruz has money, success, smoldering good looks - everything but the blue blood needed to become a true member of Texas society. If Lexi agrees to be his fiancée for six months, lending him her famous father's influence and connections, he'll hand her a check on the spot. And in six months they'll go their separate ways.
But neither one is prepared for their long-ago shared passion to throw a wrench into what would seem to be the perfect deal.

"When you think of passion, drama and heartwarming stories, think Susan Mallery." (Romantic Times)
Whenever a Susan Mallery book is added on audible, it is an automatic buy for me. I don't even bother to read the preview and I'm never disappointed. This is book 1 of the Lone Star sisters series and is about the 3 daughters of a Texan Tycoon. Lexi is deseperately trying to figure out a solution to a business loan that was called in. She runs into an old flame Cruz Rodriguez who offers to barter with her: Her connections to Texan high society and a fake engagement with an expiration date in exchange for the money she needs. As soon as these two seal the deal, the sparks fly, emotions run haywire and old feelings resurface. The narrator was excellent and I look forward to the next books in the series. I'm hoping that Susan will have a book for Dana, my favorite character.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
I've listened to quite a few of Susan Mallery's books and this one was good. I was a bit scared after reading the other reviews of the series, but took a chance and was pleasantly pleased. Not sure Susan will ever get back to the level of excitement she had in her Buchanan series, but this one was entertaining
This one surprised me and was much better than expected. I hope the next two in the series keep up with this one. Credit worthy listen.
I also became acquainted with Susan Mallery through her "Buchanan" series. (which was great) I have to agree her "Sweet" series was not that good. I truley enjoyed listening to this book. "Under Her Skin" has complex characters, mystery in the plot, and a gorgeous lover who finally realizes "love is all you need." I can't wait for book two. I thought the narrator was very good.
Susan Mallery is an excellent author with a knack for creating enchanting funny, caring characters. This series needs to be read in order; the storyline developes as the series continues deeper with each story.
Graffic sex scenes, well written. Strong family ties. Great characters. Wonderful author and narrator. Be sure to begin at the beginning, but have the other books ready, because you'll want to move onto the next book as you finish the first.
Very good story line. The charater voices done very well. The book finished leaving me wanting more, so hopefully a good continuation in the next book, paying attenttion to the brother's story.
Very good with the voice change.
The buying of the cat, and hiring the race car driver.
Your mileage may vary
This is the beginning of a series with at least 4 books, and I don't have any curiosity to hear more of their stories. The ugly parent holding potential inheritance over their heads is of no interest to me. This was disappointing, since I have really enjoyed some of Mallery's stories. Now that I've read quite a few of her stories I realize she's a very hit or miss author for me. This series is a miss. I'll probably go discover some authors I find more consistent and pass on purchasing more of her books.
