Ineligible Bachelor, by Kathryn Quick
"A timely tale, INELIGIBLE BACHELOR, penned by talented author Kathryn Quick, is a humorous, sassy contemporary romance that is sure to capture your attention from the very beginning. Having failed to read the fine print when she entered the contest, Freddy finds herself a victim of her own impulsive actions. Now she has to keep Logan out of the arms of the bachelorettes while she convinces him that she is the woman of his dreams. Although she longs to get them out of the contract, she finds that she has backed them into a corner with no way out. I could not help rooting for them as they fluctuate between their desire for each other and their concern that the show is having an effect on their feelings. Packed with emotion, humor, passion, interesting characters, clever repartee, a reality show, romance and true love, this story is an absolute delight. In fact, I hated to see it end. A wonderful afternoon's escape, I highly recommend INELIGIBLE BACHELOR and look forward to reading more by this very gifted author. Do not miss it!" -- Romance Junkies, Blue Ribbon rating 4.5
After years of pining, Frederika "Freddy" McAllister has hatched a scheme to win Logan Gabriel's heart: she'll secretly enter him in Elan Magazine's Eligible Bachelor Contest, then swoop in to soothe his bruised ego when he loses. Unfortunately, Freddy's "fool-proof" plans have a tendency to backfire, with disastrous-albeit hilarious-results. And this one looks to be no exception…
Because Logan doesn't lose-he wins, earning a spot on a new reality TV show with six beautiful women vying for his affections. And if Freddy had read the fine print on the entry form, she would know that, as Logan's oldest friend, she will be tagging along to choose the lucky girl. Suddenly Freddy's perfect plan has become a perfect nightmare, complete with scheming TV executives, conniving contestants…and a bachelor in danger of falling for the wrong woman. Freddy caused this mess. Now it's up to her to prove to Logan-and millions of television viewers-that the girl next door is really the woman of his dreams.
