Kitty Wilder is the curator of Hot Water, CA's historical re-enactment town and the proprietor of Old Town's "brothel." When FBI agent Dylan Matthews discovers that he has unwittingly been married to Kitty for eight years, he returns to get a divorce. Cute, quick read- sweet romance and good small town feel.

Any one who grew up in a small town will recognize how the heroine feels trapped by her family history and the way she believes the town perceives her. And she'll do anything to break out of that cage. The hero also has issues with the towns perceptions, but unlike her, the town sees a hero in him--a role that haunts him because he knows it's not real. Together they heal each others wounds. Another fun, heartfelt story from Christie Ridgway.

There's a saying around the town of Hot Water, California: "Wilder women don't wed." When the town was founded, the Wilders ran the local house of ill repute...nowadays they're still known for there naughty ways.
But Kitty Wilder has decided that it's time for all that to change!

Kitty Wilder longed for a little respectability, so eight years ago she finagled an "I do" out of local hero Dylan Matthews. The ceremony was only supposed tobe a tourist attraction sham, but a loophole made it legal ... a little fact she'd "conveniently" neglected to share until Dylan came storming back into her life.

How could he be married and not even know it? As an FBI agent, Dylan thought he'd seen it all, but this was outrageous. Kitty is still gorgeous, appealing, and even she deserves more than the toughened man he had become. But before Dylan can accept the powerful emotions he has for this unexpected wife he has to first face down the demons of his past...

charming story. actually i read the sequel first, Thwen Comes Marriage and I traced down this one. It is light but not silly, and I found the author saying things I could believe in. I am pursuing her other books because i just like the general tone.
