“I need you to marry me.”

Jane Fox

My boss cannot be serious. The ridiculously handsome man I hate-to-crush on has just proposed I pretend to be his wife for a funeral. A funeral! Only, when he dangles a much-coveted position in exchange for my time, I can’t refuse. Who am I kidding, though? I seem to have a habit of not saying no to Mr. Wright.

Machlan Wright

Things spiral out of control the second we reach my small town. A place I swore I’d never return has suddenly become my inheritance. As in, I’ve inherited an entire town! Only, there’s one condition: my hot, top executive pretending to be my wife must marry me for real. What could possibly go wrong? <insert sarcasm>


Join Jane and Mach as they road trip to a lovely mountain town where memories haunt and relationships build. And it takes (the restoration of) a village for this marriage of convenience to question the past and change the future.

L.B. Dunbar brings you a second standalone in Road Trips & Romance. 

**Note, the Fox sisters are siblings of Garrett Fox from Wine&Dine, an original #sexysilverfox. 

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

I love LB Dunbar’s stories and her more mature characters. Merging Wright is book #2 in the Roadtrips & Romance series, and features Mae’s sister, Jane, as the heroine and her boss Machlan.

Jane thinks Mach is out of his mind when he asks her to go to his hometown with him for a funeral with him and pretend to be his wife. He dangles the promotion she’s been hoping for as a carrot, and Jane reluctantly says yes. Never mind the fact that Jane’s had feelings for Mach for quite some time and thinks that she must really be the crazy one for going through with this farce.

But Jane and Mach’s fake relationship soon turns into so much more in this heartfelt story. There are a lot of big emotions in this book, as both characters have muddy pasts that they need to work through in order to find their path together. Especially Mach, because going back to the town he swore he’d never step foot in again takes a toll on him emotionally. But as he repairs burned bridges from his past, he really becomes a different person. And as he begins to see himself in a different light as well, this serial dater realizes that the perfect mate for him has been on the other side of the office all along.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
