Purple Hearts by Tess Wakefield Giveaway (US only)

Purple Hearts
Tess Wakefield

When a soldier with a troubled past and a struggling songwriter agree to a marriage of convenience for the military benefits, neither expects much after saying “I do.” Then tragedy strikes, and the line between what’s real and what’s pretend begins to blur in this smart and surprising romance perfect for fans of Nicholas Sparks and Jojo Moyes.

Cassie Salazar and Luke Morrow couldn’t be more different. Sharp-witted Cassie works nights at a bar in Austin, Texas to make ends meet while pursuing her dream of becoming a singer/songwriter. Luke is an Army trainee, about to ship out for duty, who finds comfort in the unswerving discipline of service. But a chance encounter at Cassie’s bar changes the course of both their lives.

Cassie is drowning in medical bills after being diagnosed with diabetes. When she runs into her old friend Frankie, now enlisted in the Army, she proposes a deal: she’ll marry him in exchange for better medical insurance and they can split the increased paycheck that comes with having a “family.” When Frankie declines, his attractive but frustratingly intense friend Luke volunteers to marry Cassie instead. What she doesn’t know is that he has desperate reasons of his own to get married. In this unforgettable love story, Cassie and Luke must set aside their differences to make it look like a real marriage... unless, somewhere along the way, it becomes one...

Giveaway!


Books à la Mode is giving away two print copies of Purple Hearts—yay!

To enter, all you have to do is tell me in the comments below:
If not for love and emotional stability, what is your next best excuse to get married to someone? (This is a serious question, but obviously I'm not encouraging people to get married for these auxiliary reasons!)
Please make your comment MEANINGFUL. Comments solely consisting of stock responses or irrelevant fluff like "Thanks for the giveaway!" will not be considered for entry. Tess and I really want to hear from you guys! :)

I think financial security and social status are important factors beyond traditional monogamous love and commitment. You shouldn't marry someone solely for their money, or to socially mobilize, but they are small things that matter.

Don't forget the entry eligibility terms and conditions!
