Javier Herrera needs a wife in order to inherit his family's bank or else it goes into the hands of his cousin. The reason he finds himself in such a mess is because he trusted Grace's father who embezzled money from the bank in order to take care of his ill wife. He decides to marry Grace so as to take revenge and also inherit the bank.

The characters are so wonderfully written. This is a retelling of the "Beauty and the Beast" and the hero's transformation was heartwarming. The tension between

the start was cliched. grace was desperate bcoz her dad had embezzled money from javier's bank n javier was going 2 lose control of the bank if he did not marry. he had only a delay of 2 months. so ofc when grace barged in his home n begged him 2 spare her father, here he had found his wife ! well, this is ridiculous. but neway, we dunt read HP books 4 reality but 4 fantasy lol. so he made a deal; they will stay married 4 a year n divorce quietly after dat. he did expect her 2 be available sexua ...more

لشارع المتنبي وكم كانت فرحتي كبيرة اشتريتها وصرخت اختي من فرحتها بالرواية وللعلم اني محتفظة بالرواية المشبعة بالقهوة ههههههه..
شانتيل شاو مبدعة كل رواية تختلف عن الاخرى لاتحس بالرتابة او التكرار.

Bazi yerlerinde Helen Bianchin'in Bedel isimli romanini okuyorum sandim.
Chantelle Shaw en az benim kadar etkilenmis bu yazardan ama ben bu hikayeyi de cok sevdim.Bedelin degişik bir düzenlemesi de olsa severek okudum ve elimden bırakamadim.
Javier'e büyükbabasindan sürpriz bir vasiyet vardi yillardir idare ettigi bankasinin yönetimini elden cıkarmak istemiyorsa iki ay icinde evlenip en az bir yıl evli kalmalıydi.
Grace ise Javier'in bankasinda çalışan babasi ölen annesinin tedavi masraflarini öde
Very, very good. Really more of a 3.5 than a 4, but considering I've read some real stinkers lately fours stars it is.

A Beauty and the Beast scenario down to the roses she tries and steals, this is a charmer. The H is a great, big hunka, hunka burning love, and Grace is the virginal heroine there to bargain for her dad.

The romance unfolds nicely. The heroine is charming and could have been a little bit quirkier with a little more work, but the hero is what makes it. Javier is a blatant seducer a

Omg did this one make me cry I really felt for her, this was powerful writing and if you don't want your heart on the floor don't read this one. He was an asshat at first but in the end I understood and I felt that they belonged together did she ever deserve a great guy. It took him a while but he finally realized what a jewel she was. Yes she is sweet and he is an ass so it's strong here not for the faint at heart.

I've read this one twice now. Enjoyed the interaction between hero and heroine. Love the brooding hero's and feisty heroine's who won't let anyone sit on their heads. Of this leads to giving the hero a really hard time which he usually has earned in spades. If you like M&B you'll like this one.

The book starts out with a Will being read. It states that Javier must be married by his 36th Birthday or the family bank will be awarded to his cousin. His grandfather wanted the bank to remain a family business.

Grace's father has embezzled money from the bank in order to take care of his wife that was very sick, and latter died. Grace knows her father will never survive prison. She goes to Javier to beg him to drop the charges against her father. She is willing to work off the debt. She will

I actually thought this novel was very sweet and well written. I couldn't help but love the hero and heroine. Together they were like wildfire, the passion was intense. You could see the love they both had for each other develop as well. I liked the ending but it was pretty brief.
I liked the subtle Beauty & The Beast vibe -- the theft from the "beast" by the father, the daughter stepping in in his defense, agreeing to be "captive" to the beast, the prickly attitude of the hero and the opposite of the heroine as well as the rose garden.

The alpha male was a bit too alpha at times for me, but the plot was clear and strong and I the protagonists grew on me.

I grew up without a TV, let alone DVD’s, computer games etc that my kids spend so much time engrossed in, but I learned to read at an early age and from then on I was always entertained – so much so that my friends used to hide their books when I visited them because all I wanted to do was read!

When I was a teenager I discovered Mills & Boon romances in my local library, and so began a lifelon
