Let's Make It Legal

A novel by

When Sydney Wells, a workaholic lawyer and passionate children's advocate, meets John Appleton, a sexy widower with two young children, fireworks ensue. Thanks to a father who was thwarted in his desire for a son and named his fourth daughter after himself, Sydney has never thought of herself as womanly or sexy or even attractive. But from their first meeting, John recognizes the sexy woman beneath her severe clothing and practical shoes -- a woman he can't stop thinking about -- even though he knows nothing can ever come of the attraction he feels for her. Sydney, too, is more interested in John than she can admit -- even to herself. Despite their differences and all the obstacles in their path, their attraction grows and they can't seem to stay away from one another. Can this romance ever work? Can these two find a way to combine their two distinctly different lives? Or are John and Sydney destined to face heartbreak?

In the hands of Patricia Kay, a USA Today bestselling author of more than 50 novels of romance and women's fiction, LET'S MAKE IT LEGAL is a compelling story of how opposites can not only attract but just possibly bring out the best in each other.

Her first mainstream romance, THE WRONG CHILD, (Berkley, 12/2000) was nominated for a Rita by the Romance Writers of America. An acclaimed teacher, she has taught fiction writing classes at the University of Houston, but now limits her teaching to online classes.
