Marriage of Inconvenience, an all new romantic comedy standalone in the USA Today bestselling, Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid, is available NOW!

MOI copy
There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?
Staring at his chin, because I couldn’t quite lift my eyes any higher, I cleared my throat. “Should we get ready for bed?” “Sure,” he said, his voice a rumble. Dan’s eyes were on me, I felt the weight of them. My hands came to the hem of my skirt and I hesitated, feeling winded for some reason. Sneaking a glance at him, I immediately wished I hadn’t. His gaze was watchful, but it was also unmistakably hot in a way that seemed at once both avaricious and accusatory. The vice tightened around my lungs. Kiss him! Just freaking kiss him! You want numbered steps? Fine. You kiss him- check. He kisses you back- check. Then you make out- check. Check the boxes. I licked my lips, balling my hands into fists at my sides again, preparing to follow my hasty list. But then he said, “Undress me.” My breath caught. On instinct, my eyes lifted and collided with his in much the same way our bodies had collided at the top of the stairs just moments ago. Jarring. Startling. Thrilling. This time I couldn’t look away because this time I was falling. He made no move to catch me. “What? What did you say?” His eyes narrowed, which served only to increase the intensity of his gaze from smolder to inferno. “Take my clothes off.” I stared at him, licking my lips again, and shaking my head. That wasn’t one of my steps. Lifting my chin, I moved to kiss him. He leaned to the side, evading me even as his eyes dropped to my mouth. “Take off my shirt and I’ll give you a kiss.” He’d used his naughty-secret voice. An explosion of heat erupted in my belly, and now I was hot all over. I couldn’t figure out if the heat was embarrassment or arousal or both. He didn’t give me a chance to figure it out. His hands lifted and he undid his cuffs; then they moved to the top button of his shirt. “You better take over,” he said darkly, “or else you’re not getting that kiss.”

Finally, we get the story of Dan and Kat. These two crazy kids have been secretly pining for each other for ages. To avoid her crazy cousin taking over the family business and committing her Kat must marry. Kat cannot imagine asking Dan. Her crush is too huge. It would just be too much to be around him. However, desperation gets the best of her and she goes to Dan for help.

Unbeknownst to Kat, Dan’s crush is just as big. He jumps in without hesitation when she asks him to marry her. Just tell him when and where and he will be there. Dan has been smitten with Kat since Vegas. Marrying her is a clear shot to be close to her. Once these two realize the feelings are mutual, it is game on.

Marriage of Inconvenience was a fabulous conclusion to the Knitting series. If you did not already love Dan, you are going to fall head over heels for him. I adored his patience with Kat. Kat felt her baggage was too big. Dan knew what they could have together would be worth it.
Dan and Kat’s journey was sweet, sexy, and romantic. These two were perfect for each other. I am sad it is the end of the road for the Knitting crew but it was worth the ride. Well Done!


Dan, Dan, Dan....what more needs to be said? Dan the Security Man is awesome in this book. We've seen bits of Dan here and there, always seeming to blend into the background, but also always available when need be. Kat has also kind of always been in the background; we don't really know much about her, other than she's friends with all the knitting ladies and she's very quiet and keeps to herself. Kat and Dan have both been secretly pining for each other for the past several years...and I'm fairly certain everyone sees it but the two of them.

We learn fairly quickly that Kat is an billionaire heiress, who has a weaselly cousin and he's trying to take over Kat's life. Kat needs to marry quickly to avoid being controlled by her cousin and Dan agrees to help her out. After some funny moments at the Courthouse, a long held misunderstanding between them is cleared up and boom, we're off to the races.

I loved, loved, loved how Dan was so patient with Kat as she navigated her new roles. He understood what he was working towards and that it was worth the effort and rewards at the end. His declaration to Kat was probably one of my favorite ever, just because it absolutely how he would say it. Kat was in her head a bit, but not to the point of distraction. Despite the fact that she needs to work on herself, she's a strong character. She doesn't let her perceived flaws rule her life too much.

I loved everything about this story. I'm just sad that it's the last in the series.
