A delightful romantic comedy from the author of THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING MARRIED and A WILD AFFAIR.Married to the man she loves - sweet, sexy Max - Jessica Wild-Wainwright is blissfully happy...except for one tiny little problem. She never confessed to an (almost) tryst with Max's biggest rival right before their wedding. Eaten up with guilt, and with looming threats of exposure, Jessica decides to give Max what he clearly still lacks: the Ideal Wife. With the help of her friends, she will become perfect in every way: doting, devoted, domestic-everything Max deserves.However, the path to perfection is fraught with peril, from culinary chaos to a boudoir disaster that puts Max in the hospital with a broken leg. As Jessica rallies to run Max's company - met with overt hostility by an obsessive co-worker and by an auditor determined to uncover everyone's secrets - things are decidedly less than ideal. Throw in a semi-retired Russian stripper and strange men watching her apartment, and Jessica fears Project Ideal Wife has backfired miserably. Can a less than perfect wife save the day?

Jessica Wild isn't big on commitment. 'Don't depend on anyone' is her motto. But her friend Grace, a sweet old lady she met in her grandmother's nursing home, can't believe that Jess is truly happy on her own. Eventually Jess caves and tells Grace she's got a boyfriend: her glamorous boss, Anthony Milton. When in time her fantasy boyfriend becomes her fantasy husband, Grace is thrilled for Jess. So much so, that she leaves Jess an inheritance. But there's a snag. It's in the name of Jessica Milton.Grace trusted Jess to look after the house she adored. If Jess is to keep that trust, it will mean turning her Little White Lie into a Big White Wedding - and getting Anthony to fall in love with her and pop the question for real. With the help of her formidable best friend Helen and Gloria, a Russian escort experienced in the ways of men, Jess reluctantly learns the art of flirting, seduction and playing hard to get. But just when it appears that Operation Marriage is a success and Anthony is about to ask the million-dollar question, Jess wonders if it's right to say 'I do' for all the wrong reasons...
