Jack Lamont is a young bachelor who shies away from marriage for fear he wouldn’t make a good dad. Mary Malone, a young widow with children, is struggling to pay her bills. In real life, Jack and Mary would likely never meet, much less fall in love, but anything can happen in a fairy tale.
Jack has a chance encounter with Zelda, the mysterious Psychic Queen of Cricket Falls, Colorado, who warns him he must align his emotional age with his biological age or he’s doomed. She has a vision of Jack’s demise one year from his doctor’s death, which Jack thinks is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
After the doctor dies the following day, Jack is desperate to find Zelda to learn how he can change his destiny. Unable to find her, he turns to his friend, Mike, who has a plan. Unfortunately, it involves what Jack fears second only to death, becoming a mature married man with kids. With less than a year to go, and no mate in sight, Jack advertises on the Internet for a pretend family.
Mary is willing to help, but only with the understanding that when Jack dies she gets his beautiful lakeside cabin. Oh, and one other thing, absolutely no sex.
But what happens if Jack lives?

Philip Lewellan discovers a mysterious painting. He’s sure it’s proof his missing wife is alive … and may be living somewhere with a child, his daughter. The thought of being a father is more than enough to get Philip to turn to the one person who might believe him.
Sandra Copeland, the original detective assigned to the missing-persons case, chased far too many bogus leads, after Philip—against her advice—offered a million dollar reward. Legitimate private investigators quit taking Philip’s money. Nothing could be found, or any evidence to indicate Renée might be alive. Copeland is not about to reopen an inactive seven-year-old missing-persons case based on what could only be another bogus lead. That is, until she sees a photo of the oil painting Philip has found in a New York art gallery. Their investigation unearths a staggering conspiracy impossible to believe, or to ignore.
Not just another missing wife story, this gripping tale mixes elements of mystery, romance, and danger, bringing a thrilling new twist to an old tale of greed and vice.
