If Hanna Rockwell isn't married by the time she reaches her 30th birthday, she will lose her home, Rockwell Place, and her entire inheritance.


Hanna's mother and brother, who also live at Rockwell Place, are desperately afraid they're going to lose their home and allowance. Their constant nagging at Hanna to find someone to marry has driven her to challenge them.


"Start planning the wedding, Mother. And Will, you find the groom. And I'll get married on my 30th birthday!"


Feeling confident that her plan will never work, Hanna is dismayed when Will announces that Matt Corbett has agreed to marry Hanna.


The Matt Corbett? The has-been rock star who was her teen-age idol? No way!


Matt Corbett can't believe the string of events that has led him to decide to marry a stranger. But he's determined to get back on his feet. And he's determined to make his former manager pay dearly for getting him in the financial ruin that he's in. Yes, he'll marry Hanna Rockwell so he'll have a place to live, just long enough to jump-start his country music career.


But he hadn't counted on falling in love with her.

"A must read for anyone looking for romance! Excellent from cover to cover! I just couldn't put it down. To find romance — whether you are thick or thin — is hard to do. Author Pat Ballard combines humor and sensuality in her tale of seeking true romance. A must read for anyone seeking a male suitor. You are an inspiration to romance writers across the globe! Keep up the good work."

"Finally, realistic heroines!...I'm not normally a romance novel reader (although I HAVE been known to read a few), but I was intrigued by the concept of realistic heroines, and so I gave this book a try. I must say I was delighted by the book, and had a hard time putting it down. Ms. Ballard paints her characters with a vivid brush—I even found myself daydreaming about Hanna!! This book proves that all women are beautiful, not just what Hollywood considers beautiful."
