She’s buying a husband

And he’s buying a…dog?

Veterinarian Jessica Talbot wants to build a clinic and wildlife rescue. She could access her trust fund, but there’s a caveat—to get the money, Jessica needs a husband. When she learns Officer Jake Carter needs funding to buy and train his own K-9 partner, Jessica proposes. Jake is shocked, but he agrees—only for the money. It’s the perfect plan—if only Jessica can avoid falling for her husband…and vice-versa!

Praise for Makenna’s Books

What Readers Are Saying!

“Her Second Chance Cowboy is a story of second chances and rekindled love, and it even had a bit of a mystery. I will definitely be reading more from this excellent debut author!”


5-Star Amazon Review

A Sheriff’s Star has the lovely cozy and comfortable elements of a good holiday story, but it was the added nuances to the individual characters, their situations, and the relationships going on that pushed this into a superb story.”

5-Star Amazon Review

In the Key of Family was extraordinary. It was by far the best book I read this year.

Makenna Lee sure knows how to write one heck of a story. She truly has a talent for understanding Special Needs children and putting that to paper. It’s not often you find an author who can do such a thing. I loved how she didn’t just make Cody an afterthought. Quite often the children suddenly become invisible when the romance between the Hero and Heroine start to heat up. She does such a spectacular job of blending the romance and family all together.”


5-Star GoodReads Review

“A Child’s Christmas Wish made my heart incredibly happy. I instantly fell in love with Jenny, Eric, and Lilly, drawn into this wonderful story of love and family.

Author Makenna Lee has an incredible gift for writing stories featuring children with special needs and the moms and dads who love them.

Eric and Jenny have walls to break down and obstacles to overcome to make their Christmas wishes come true—and it was a joy to be along with them on this journey.”

“Sometimes Wishes do Come true. Makenna Lee has quickly became one of my must read authors . Each book in Her Home to Oak Hollow series has a unique story that doesn’t leave you feeling like you have read that story somewhere else. They are also full of wonderful characters that you absolutely love. Another special thing about her books is the fact that each story has a special need child. Although A Child’s Christmas Wish is part of a series you can read it as a stand alone and not be lost. I promise though once you read one of her books you will want to read them all. I have enjoyed every book this author has wrote but this one is the best yet!”
