rita-herron
Rita Herron is an American author of romance and romantic suspense novels. She is a USA Today bestselling author. She fell in love with reading when she read her first Trixie Belden book at age 8. Rita wanted to be a writer, but didn’t think it was a real job that real people did, so she became a kindergarten teacher. Now, instead of telling stories in class, she writes them on paper so she doesn’t need a “real” job. Rita enjoys romantic suspense stories that combine murder, mystery and romance as well as some romantic comedies.

Rita Herron has published over fifty books – many of which in series such as the Hartwell Hope Chests, Bachelor Pact, Nighthawk Island, Bucking Bronc Lodge, Slaughter Creek, Manhunt, Cold Case, Heroes of Horseshoe Creek and other series.

Rita Herron Synopsis: Husband Hunting is a standalone novel by Rita Herron. Avoid commitment! That is Jenna Barrett’s number one rule in her search for a husband. So why is she so attracted to the sexy advertising executive she’s hired to design a new ad campaign for her lingerie store? Zachary West knows all the ploys women use to trap a man into marriage and he is not falling for any of them. Worse, Jenna Barrett has made no bones about the fact that she’s on a full-fledged husband hunt – she’s taking a class called “How To Get Married Within a Year!” Sure, he can’t seem to stop fantasizing about the sexy redhead modeling the sheer teddies she sells. But when images of the beguiling woman in a wedding gown and a long white veil taunt him, he knows he’s in big trouble! Will he be able to overcome his panic attacks at the idea of marriage, or will Jenna have to continue her husband hunt – without him.
