Trapped in wealthy bondage with her siblings legally married, parental and
societal pressure mounting daily, successful banker and cynic, Otasowie Idah
knew she was fast running out of excuses. How long was she going to pretend
that being single at twenty-nine didn't carry a stigma?
HUSBAND to RENT is a dramatic
story about an unmarried woman forced to live at home. Her inheritance is at
stake. She's pushed to marrying the man her father chooses for her...until she
stumbles across an escape route out of her bonds. And then, she plans the
unthinkable! To rent a husband for a week! Will Otasowie’s carefully woven scheme unravel
their locked infatuation? Will he be her husband for a week?
With his parents and friends’ reservations ringing in his head, Gambian born
and bred hotelier, Fara Damba shoves his recently broken engagement behind him
to trace his grandfather in a country he knows nothing about. His only purpose in
Nigeria is to
quickly find his grandfather, and return to his homeland. A chance meeting with
Otasowie at the Registry office is all it takes to kick start a chain of events
that will test their values. Is Fara willing to get help at any cost? And will he
grant her absurd wish to be her husband for one week?
