Alex is The Romance Fox
I really enjoy this author's books and this was such a great read.

The glitzy and glamorous life of a Hollywood superstar, who meets a very ordinary girl and changes her life for ever.

It's like Cinderella meets her Prince and off they go into the sunset after finding their HEA!!!!!

Engaging characters, fabulous plot and who doesn't love romance set in the world of celebrities and movies!!!

I always love Jane's books, and I'm so thrilled to find her backlist is being digitized! I bought up everything I haven't read yet just this past week. As usual, the emotion is so strong and powerful. Add in Jane's gorgeous settings, and I feel like I've just spent a week married to a movie star and traveling on location with him.

I am surprised that it got so many negative reviews. I really loved the story. Wolf, the hero was not some one infallible. He did make some mistakes but he never gave up. That's what I really liked about the character. Of course I do wish he had done things differently but I do understand his POV too. I don't blame him all that much.

Alex, on the other hand acted a little immature at times. Love often makes us act irrationally. Love makes us stronger yet at times it brings out our insecurities.

Wolfe was infuriatingly sexy, and Alexandra was understandably insecure!

A typical Harlequin romance where Cinderella meets her Prince Charming.

Wolfe's reasons were beyond understandable, even though he made it very clear there was nothing going on between him & Joy. But he should have drawn the line when Joy insulted his marriage and thus Alexandra.

When this did not happen and Alexandra told him to choose, he chose Joy - lock, stock and barrel ... no telling no and sexy comebacks aren't O

This story was intriguing until the end. That seems to be the theme for Jane Porter novels. How could the female lead think that she was at fault for being unable to live with a man who made another woman his priority? A woman who would call this person's husband 24/7 and she's in the wrong for not being okay with it? Ridiculous. I do appreciate that when he came to his senses and went after his wife, the hero had to fight past all five of her brothers to even be able to speak with her. He shoul ...more

the most stupid hero i've found so far. meh.

I see a lot of reviewers had problems with the hero...he hardly 'appeared', so I really don't understand the animosity. At least he had rich, famous and handsome going for him?

For me, the fault laid mostly in the heroine. Nothing in the entire book portrayed the heroine as funny, sensitive, nor sharp...all the reasons the hero supposedly fell for. She was judgmental as heck though or does that count as 'sassy'?

Then there's the history between the two MCs...so what happened exactly?

It all left

It was rather sweet that the accomplished and vastly experienced Hollywood hunk Wolfe wanted to have an ordinary, virginal wife at his side for life. And he had such a big heart toward the poor people of Africa. I hope he does get his wish to some day escape the fakers in that flashy world he hated so much!

The Hero was sexy, but he was also a jerk, and the heroine was in serious trouble, she was stupidly naive.

The description of this book interested me. Who doesn't love a good romance? Throw in a hot Hollywood movie star and a normal person (like any of us), and you got a hit. Haven't we all dreamed about being the wife of someone who is famous? The reality of it isn't always what it's cracked up to be. The characters in this book overcome all the odds that are against them and in the end they live happily ever after. The perfect fairytale for me.

One of my favorites! I loved Hollywood Husband, Contract Wife and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good Presents. I found the characters to be irresistible, the writing emotional and enthralling, and the romance to be exciting and sincere. Wolf is one of those heroes I loved from the beginning and rooted for the romance.

At first I wasn't sure if I liked how the conflict played out, but after I finished the characters really resonated...and this may be one I actually read again.

Also, I admit I thought there might be stories for the brothers, and I probably would have continued if there had.

I'm not into Harlequin's, but the story line in this book was actually very good. And yes it's sexy, but again, Jane is good at tasteful sexy. :o)

Born in Visalia, California, I'm a small town girl at heart. I love central California's golden foothills, oak trees, and the miles of farmland. In my mind, there's nothing sweeter in the world than the heady fragrance of orange blossoms on a sultry summer night.

As a little girl I spent hours on my bed, staring out the window, dreaming of far off places, fearless knights, and happy-ever-after endi
