He's hot. Rich. Domineering. And grumpy.

Hedley Decker is used to people obeying his every command, but the unconscious stray dog on his doorstep isn't impressed, and nor is the pretty veterinarian who saves it. Overhearing that she needs a date for her ex-boyfriend's wedding, he proposes a deal: she'll help him find the real owner before the puppies arrive, he'll be her fake date. She’s a temptation he can’t resist, but he must return to London in a month or risk his secrets being exposed.  

She's kind, trapped, and soon to be broke.

Her dad's illness means Clara Rowe must keep her job at the only veterinary clinic, owned by her ex's father. If that means overtime and going to a wedding solo, so be it. Then gorgeous and arrogant billionaire Hedley Decker storms in with an offer of one night of pretense and pleasure that’s too good to be true. 

Searching for the lost dog's owner, their spark of attraction flares. He's returning to his city life; she knows better than to risk her heart. How can they have forever love when they're faking it, and time is running out?

This was my first book by author Eve Pendle, but it won’t be my last. Her Fake Date Until Midnight was a fantastic romance and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Book Reviews

A stray dog leads to a billionaire and a veterinarian fake dating in exchange for help finding the dog’s owner. Her Fake Date Until Midnight was an entertaining and enjoyable romance low on angst and with plenty of heat.

On holiday mandated by his sister and the CFO of his company Hedley Decker finds a dog on his doorstep one that looks close to death. On the advice of the builder who has been working on his house, he takes the dog to the vet where he meets Clara Rowe and realizes after spending just a bit of time in her presence and seeing how awful her ex-boyfriend and co-worker treats her suggests he be her date to the ex’s wedding and while he doesn’t mind doing that, there’s something about her that makes him want to spend time with her. Hedley was a workaholic and his priorities were a bit screwed up, but it was easy to see that underneath that was a kind and compassionate man he just didn’t let that side out very often.

It was easy to like Clara, but at times she drove me nuts because she let people in her life both professional and personal run all over her. She had a good heart and she always jumped into help others yet she didn’t always take the best care of herself. I liked that Hedley showed her how to have fun and enjoy life and also helped her realize her self worth.

Though these two characters were very different, I felt they complemented one another well. There was no doubt Hedley’s world was nothing like Clara’s world, but he never made her feel less than and he was generous with his time and when he saw a need he worked to find a way to help.

This was my first book by author Eve Pendle, but it won’t be my last. Her Fake Date Until Midnight was a fantastic romance and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
