Camille Chandler is a tabloid journalist whose career is right on track--until her boss sees a curious ad in the L.A. Trades.
Wanted: Single actress for an extended gig abroad.
France's mega-rich playboy Julian de Laurent is up to something and Camille's boss expects her to find out what. Who knew the eccentric gazillionaire was looking to hire a temporary wife?
When Camille refuses to accept Julian's proposal--and secretly write a juicy tell-all about the de Laurent family--she's fired and left financially destitute, forcing her to entertain Julian's proposal for real.
But what'll happen at the end of the contract period, after Camille has spent six months as the wife of a man she learns is capable of stealing her heart?
**This is a re-release of The Marriage Bargain, originally published in August, 2010. This version has an ALL NEW ending.**
Will five million dollars tempt you to marry someone then divorce them in 6 months? It does for Camille but for all the wrong reasons, it seems. She's an intern at a tabloid paper and her boss has found what seems the story of the century. However, Camille’s ideals and beliefs get the better of her and she decides to go against her boss who fires her in retaliation.
It sounds like a cheesy Harlequin/Mills and Boon book ,right? The title, the theme, and setting all scream Harlequin. Well don’t make that mistake. It's more than those pieces of fluff from Harlequin. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy Harlequin/Mills and Boon books, but sometimes I want to scream at them, ‘Can’t you do something different?!’ This author has and created an enjoyable book. The characters are more real than the macho men and seem airheads we get when we read about the rich and famous in romance. I have to give this book four stars.
