He discovers the perfect place to hide, a location no one would think to look for him — Rent A Husband, Inc. His plan is simple: he’ll work under a false identity, cloistered safely away inside some anonymous, lonely, old lady’s house then put his brother’s killer away when he testifies at the trial.
But Tasha Henslow, a bed and breakfast owner whose building faces foreclosure, is not lonely and she’s not old. Nor, unfortunately, is she anonymous.

He’s in disguise as a Rent-A-Husband, but the way he’s feeling about Tasha, could he convince her to turn it into a permanent gig?

I enjoyed Rent-A-Husband, Inc. very much! It’s full of secrets, danger, and of course, falling in love. Moira Reid creates dynamic, memorable characters that you can’t help but love. Witty dialogue and interesting situations. The plot is well thought out and creative. This is my first time reading this author, but I can say with assurance it won’t be my last.

Moira Reid presents her readers with a serious situation and puts a fun twist on it in this romantic suspense story. Crete is such a wonderful hero and I loved how his thoughts and feelings were so available to me. He is faced with extraordinary circumstances and yet he remains such a strong, principled man. Tasha Henslow is a smart and beautiful woman with horrible self-esteem, proofing that you never know what goes on in someone else’s mind. The chemistry between the main couple is solid there is a real emotional connection as well as a simmering sexuality. I’ll admit that I didn’t think much of the fact that Tasha did not remember a man she spent the night with but the entire situation was explained well and was understandable. The villain, while no means innocent came across clearly in his actions and motivations were interesting to witness. The story idea was a unique concept and I enjoyed the hire a handyman concept and am hoping a branch opens in my neighborhood. This was a good story that I’d recommend to romance fans and I look forward to seeing what else this author has to offer. –Night Owl Book Reviews 4-1/2 Stars
There are few books that I can become so absorbed in that I will finish them in one sitting. This is one of them. From the spine tingling danger that is following Crete to the moment Tasha and Crete physically reconnect, I tuned the world out until the final page was turned. This story took my breath away on many levels. Ms. Reid has certainly gained a fan with this reviewer. If you are looking for suspense, drama and romance all wrapped up in a neat box and tied with a bow, Rent a Husband, Inc. is the book for you. — Coffee Time Romance & More, 4 Cups
Ms. Reid’s Rent-a-Husband concept really worked. I definitely could see a sequel with this concept. The sexual tension between Tasha and Crete was fun. If you’re looking for a book with a strong hero, smart heroine, evil villain, great sex, and good suspense, try Rent-a-Husband, Inc. –Whipped Cream Reviews
What do a priest, a nun, a mobster and two folks who can’t keep their hands off each other have in common? One heck of a sweet ride with just enough tension to keep readers on edge. In my opinion, Rent-A-Husband, Inc. has mass appeal. The pace is strong with plenty of conflict and a steady barrage of “Oh my goodness. I didn’t see that coming.” The story line is clever and the characters have plenty of depth and more than enough hubba-hubba to satisfy those carnal cravings of romance readers everywhere.
Tasha Henslow was facing foreclosure on her bed and breakfast before it even opened. Crete Gannon is on the run from his brother’s murderer, trying to survive to testify at his trial. In an effort to solve both of their problems, their friend Sage, owner of Rent-A-Husband, Inc. hooks Crete up with Tasha as a carpenter for RAH. Crete will do home repairs in exchange for a place to stay.
Crete recognized Tasha instantly. The woman of his dreams, he searched high and low for her after their one night stand. Tasha thinks he looks familiar, but between the antihistamines and the beer she drank, her one embarrassing blip in her past is foggy at best. Now Crete has two weeks to fix up the old house, outsmart a mobster, and woo the love of his life. Not to worry, he’s totally up to the challenge.
Crete and Tasha had chemistry immediately. I enjoyed watching Tasha try to figure out how he could seem so familiar. When the truth finally came out, the chemistry finally combusted. I’m surprised the walls were still standing. There were just enough I-can’t-keep-my-hands-off-you moments to feel the attraction, yet the relationship didn’t overwhelm the story. The author included plenty of suspense to balance the blossoming love.
The nun had to be the best. Although her part was short, it was one of the most memorable scenes. The choice to add that brief little sojourn really added immensely to the story overall. It gave Crete more depth and clearly demonstrated their love for each other without even having to use words.
As the holidays approach and we are looking for something warm and fun to read by the fire, this is a great choice. Enjoy! –The Romance Reviews, 4 Stars
