Scrambling to save her family's company, Emma McKinley was shocked when billionaire hotel magnate Alex Garrison tossed her a lifeline-- baited with an heirloom engagement ring and a pre-nup an inch thick. It was a textbook marriage of convenience: he calls off her creditors; she gives him half her company. But the elaborate game of make-believe soon became more intoxicatin ...more

By page 71 I came to like the male protagonist--Alex--less and less. He's overbearing, patronizing, controlling, egotistical, arrogant and chauvenistic. He lacked any charisma towards Emma until they spent more time together. He's disrespectful towards her. At this point, I was thinking that he should have just bought her business out right away, and then he wouldn't have had to worry about being inconvenienced by marrying her for her business or worrying about having a "celibate" marriage, and ...more
“No. Not my lawyer. My housekeeper.”

Initial Final Page Thoughts.
Meh. It was only 200 pages.

High Points.
The heroine got angry at him! Yay! Kind of anyways... Tension. The guy falling first. Character realism in Emma.

Low Points.
Predictable. Cliche. Plot holes. Katie. Boring smut scenes.

This is exactly the kind of book you should read at 11PM the night you had your cat companion of 15 years put to sleep and you're suffering from insomnia and you can't help but think you're hearing her voice over and over down the hall.

Two rich white people - Emma and Alex - enter into a marriage of convenience and find out they're lustily attracted to the other's "creamy cleavage" or "steel gray eyes." There's the beautiful sister, the British housekeeper, and a French caterer.

It's a sweet litt

Does anyone know what the next book in this series is? I want to read Katie's story (I assume she's going to hook up with Nathaniel!)

Barbara Dunlop penned--well pencilled, actually--her first major work of fiction at the age of eight. It was entitled How The Giraffe Got His Long Neck and was released to rave reviews. Unfortunately, the print run of one copy hindered distribution. But the experience whet her appetite for celebrity and acclaim.

Three years later she became a reporter for the venerated publication, The Berry Street
