Bybee, Catherine. Wife by Wednesday (2011). 222 Pages. Self Published. $.99*
Rich, titled, and charming… And in need of a wife by Wednesday so he turns to Sam Elliot who isn’t the business man he expected. Instead, Blake is faced with Samantha Elliot, engaging and spunky with a voice men call 900 numbers to hear.
