My new patient is a liar. Good thing I don’t mind working for the truth.
Erica Molloy was in a car accident. She walked away without a scratch, but her mother ended up in a coma.
When I overhear a couple thugs threaten to hurt her, I know there’s a lot more to this story.
Nobody messes with my patients. Especially not when they’re gorgeous, spit-fire pissed off, and more than a handful.
So I do what any reasonable doctor would do in my position: I offer to marry her.
Just for pretend, of course. We’ll fake it for a while until the bad guys go away.
Simple enough, at least until that first kiss when I realize this fake-wedding thing is way more than that.
Now I’ve got a wife and a whole host of new problems, but I’m a doctor—I’m used to high pressure situations.
I’ll keep her safe. Make sure she’s taken care of.
And I’ll turn this fake marriage into our happily-ever-after.
