She wants a temporary fake romance

Can he make it real...and forever?

Driving across the country in an RV with her terminally ill godmother was not Daphne Merlotte's idea. Nor was crashing the RV into a small-town coffee shop, nearly hitting local good guy Mel Greene. Now Daphne will do anything to keep her godmother from continuing the trip--even asking Mel to be her fake boyfriend. But there's nothing fake about Mel's intentions--he wants a real romance!

(Daphne’s heated argument with her terminally ill godmother about Daphne’s single status and Fran’s unfit condition to drive is interrupted by Mel who takes umbrage when he learns Fran has burnt Daphne’s treasured book.)

Fran gave Mel the same long, speculative look she’d given a few eligible men just before launching them at Daphne in Fran’s decades-long crusade to pair Daphne up with someone who was not “insane, insolvent or indisposed.” “You two have met,” she said by way of invitation to Mel.
“I drove her home from the hospital the day of your accident. I appreciated her company. You might show a little gratitude, too.”
Fran brightened, smiled and then volleyed her first question. “You’re here to tell me how to treat my goddaughter?”
“It’s not right that you burned her book out of spite.”
Oh, heavens. Lemons rolled from Daphne’s hands onto the tile and she scrambled after them. Fran’s smile stiffened. “Now, why would you say it was out of spite?”
 “Why else would you destroy something she loves?”
 “Perhaps out of love for her?”
 “I think there are other ways of showing it.”
 A lemon bumped against his work boot. He tossed it to Daphne. She caught it one-handed, like a pro. They grinned at each other. “I believe I have a copy of Sense and Sensibility in storage, Daphne. In pretty good condition. You’re welcome to it.”
 Later, Daphne attributed her next move to a fear for Fran, who would soon be dead, and for herself, who would soon be alone. And to the warmth in Mel’s gaze and his propensity to settle for anyone.
Still holding the lemon, she walked stiff and slow, like a bride, over to Mel and sat beside him at an angle so her knees grazed his. “Yes,” she said. “There’s something you should know, Fran. All those walks I took. I wasn’t alone. Mel and I have had some very, very good...talks.”
 She slid her hand over his knee and applied gentle pressure. He froze. Fran was absolutely riveted. “Well, Mel. What do you think?”
He turned to Daphne, a tense block. He was about to reject her. She knew that look well enough, but she was sure—yes, sure—she also saw something like regret or at least, something like a desire for a different outcome. He could be persuaded.
She closed the distance and kissed him. A few years had passed since she’d planted one on a man, but it was much like riding a bicycle. His face was rough, his lips soft and springy. Daphne parted her lips and plowed deeper. Mel cued well and went at it so convincingly that Daphne scrambled for an exit plan.
She pulled back all at once, an audible suctioning apart.
 “That,” Fran said, breathless, “was indecent.” She clapped her hands. “You, Mel, are moving on to the next round. We’re staying.”
