Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones

I absolutely LOVED this book!  Jenny Jones is a wonderful author, bringing real world problems such as poor self-image, poverty, guilt, etc., and weaves them into a fantastic, "feel good" novel.  The book is based in Charleston, South Carolina, and showcases the extremes on the social spectrum.  Lucy is the founder of Saving Grace, which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing a home and training for young women who would otherwise be out on the street and on their own after their foster care ended at 18 years of age.  Lucy is about to lose her funding for Saving Grace, so she enters into a contract with Alex Sinclair to fake an engagement in order to win an election for Congress.  Alex, a former pro-football player and member of the Charleston elite, will in turn give her the money she needs to keep her non-profit going.  They go into this as less than friends, but soon develop feelings for each other.  After learning about the person behind the facade, Lucy realizes that there is more to Alex than she gave him credit for.  Lucy  is not the type of person that Alex normally dates, which is exactly what makes her stand out.  This is a great romance story that made me long to learn even more about this couple.  I would love a sequel!
