Take one billionaire cowboy in need of a fiancée, add one divorced teacher with trust issues and mix in a fake engagement. What could possibly go wrong?

Gwen Alder is starting over — divorced and broke, she’s come to Billings, Montana for a new beginning. But waitressing in a roadside diner for the summer isn’t paying the bills, and she finds herself in over her head with no hope of catching up.

Heath Montgomery has it all — fame, fortune and a mega-watt smile, but one thing he doesn’t have is a date for his cousin’s wedding.

When the two of them cross paths, Heath has an idea — what if he paid her to be his date? No strings, no complications, just a simple business transaction — a way to finally win his father’s trust, and get his parents off his back about settling down once and for all.

She’s poor and plain. He’s wealthy and arrogant.

They didn’t want anything more than a simple arrangement. They never planned to fall in love. But sometimes cupid has a mind of his own.

* Make-Believe Fiancé is a clean and wholesome contemporary Christian romance, the first in a new series from bestselling author, Vivi Holt.


Gwen just got out of a divorce and is looking for a place to stay. Heath is needing a date to get his family off his back. When he offers to pay her to be his fake fiancé for his cousin’s wedding, she says yes only if he can pay her first month’s rent and write a recommendation letter.

The one thing they didn’t count on is slowly falling for each other. Heath and Gwen start getting to know each other and are realizing that they have more in common.

Super cute and clean romance. Gwen and Heath had great chemistry and I loved seeing them together.
