A Wild Affair (2009)

Taking off where The Importance of Being Married left us, Jessica's fake wedding to Anthony Milton is called off when she discovers that she is actually in love with Max Wainwright. Jessica is now in the stages of preparing her wedding to Max when she starts to get cold feet after Max has been having secret meetings, cancelling dates and depositing money into an account for another woman. The last straw for Jessica is when after a cellphone switch, Jessica answers Max's phone to find the "other woman" on the other end. When Jessica realises that things are definitely not what they seem, with the help of her friends Helen, Giles, Ivana and Sean, can she save her marriage to Max or has she dug herself into a hole too deep? This is a fun story that lends us the moral "that everything is not what it seems, and sometimes what you see on the surface is nowhere near the truth". (PP)

The Importance of Being Married (2008)

The first in a trilogy, Jessica Wild befriends Grace, one of the residents at her grandmother's retirement village. To keep Grace happy she entertains her with stories about a fictional boyfriend, her gorgeous boss Anthony Milton. She even starts wearing a shiny engagement ring and "elopes" when the wedding date nears. Then Grace dies, leaving her multi-million-pound inheritance to her in the name of Mrs Jessica Milton. So now, to score the fortune, Jess needs to start dating her boss - and get him to marry her - all within 50 days. With the help of her flatmate Helen and Russian escort Ivana, Jessica transforms into a wilder, sexier woman who cares more about having fun than her advertising job. And while it seems that Anthony's head is being turned, his business partner Max is not impressed. This story about a woman who decides to marry for money - not love - is a fun read if you are willing to surrender to the farcical plot.
