He'd kept a promise to marry his best friend's widow. But even an obligatory marriage could not diminish the hunger vintner Tony Carlino still felt for Rena Montgomery. Foolishly, he'd walked away from her once before...and she had never forgiven him. As far as she was concerned, no one would be toasting this arrangement anytime soon.

Charlene Sands is one of my favorite authors for the Desire line. Million Dollar Marriage Merger takes place in the Napa Valley and centers around two former lovers thrown together after the death of David Montgomery, Tony's best friend and Rena's husband.

I don't usually like stories about second chances when the relationship comes hot on the heals of the death of spouse, especially when it is obvious the spouse was well loved. Charlene finds a way to make this plot work though, and you have to
My first read by Charlene Sands. I loved this premise. Really loved it that I was glad I read it. It was heart-wrenching and yet heart-warming too. The romance and passion were far too great, very intensed indeed.

The story is about giving second chance and start anew. Tony had once made a mistake and nearly destroyed Rena, and he wanted to make things right again. He wanted her to trust him once more and love her. Now it's all depend on Rena to decide. It's understandable she's still she held o

The story opens with newly retired racing driver Tony Carlino attending the funeral of his best friend, David. His widow Rena is no fan of Tony's for a number of reasons which become apparent as the book goes on. On his deathbed, David asked Tony to marry Rena who he suspects is newly pregnant with their first child. There, my friends, is the gist of the story. Ye olde marriage of convenience. With added grapes.

Its one of the amazing books I have ever read. My first read by Charlene Sands. I totally loved it. Really I was glad I read it. It was completely heart-warming. The very intense romance and passion was too great.Tony is a great hero, in fact, he's the kind of guy, most women would want swooping into their lives. Especially if he could fix problems the way he did Rena's.

Good story and I especially liked the 'book inside the book excerpts'. Found myself wishing that I could read it in its entirety too.
It was ok! Nothing special. Didn't feel anything for Rena.
