If you are a romance reader, then I'm sure you all have read a romance story involving a billionaire. Well in this case, Marquita Valentine not only gave us a billionaire romance but with a twist...the billionaire this time is a woman!!!


The Billionaire Bride is a fun, sweet quick read. Kate Von Lichtenstein recently inherited a fortune and knew all eyes would be on her so she decided that she needs to get married asap. So when she is reuni

This isn't a long tale so there isn't room for much beyond personalities, but it would have been nice if the characters weren't solely thinking of themselves all the time, and of their money issues and how these affected their personal relationships. A lady in England has inherited a fortune quite recently and wants to marry someone who doesn't know about it before she is besieged with offers. Money being the most important factor in her life, she therefore proceeds to buy a husband - a guy she ...more

Just OK for me..

I really didn’t get Kate. She went to straighten out her parents then she started ignoring Noah’s call and being a bitch to him on the phone and hanging up on him. If the author thought Kate’s attitude would endear her to her readers she was mistaken. Up until that point I really liked Kate, and I do intend to finish the book, but my liking for her has gone straight to hell and I can’t see it making its way back. The 3.5 star review said that Noah and Kate both had some soul sear

I really enjoyed this short story of love and money albeit somewhat predictable.

I liked the charters and the friendly loving way they had with each other. I was rooting for them against the snotty parents. lol I do wish the story would have continued a little more of the chat with the parents before the Epilouge.

I think I would read more of this series for sure.

Very short read. Things moved at lightening speed. From meeting, to oust, then on quickly to love. Story and characters didn't feel fleshed out. What I did like was that Kate was the one with money. Also, it felt like characters from another series kept getting mentioned, making me feel like I should know who they were. All in all quick time killer.

a so-so book. Some good ideas but they were not developed well.

This book was fine. The couple marries quickly and quietly after the bride is set to inherit a lot of money. They already rich socialite bride and her blue collar-ish friend/husband.
I don't know that I have much patience for stories where the rich get richer and we're supposed to feel sorry for them. But whatever I read on.
Her husband who isn't rich but wealthy enough from developments he worked on his own.
There is the typical "does he think I trying to make him feel bad for being poor" and t
Kate, daughter of a baron who just inherited billions from her grandparents, and Noah, who's lawyer flew the country with his money, agree to get married to solve each of their problems. It's simple really, just an agreement with no feelings involved.

A cute, sweet and entertaining insta-love story to pass time between more intense books.

Even if they knew each other from previous encounters, the love between Kate and Noah was believable and strong and their feelings grew through their interactio

This is a fun marriage of convenience story. A wealthy woman decides to choose her own husband before her family does for her and chooses a man from her past. She knows he's a kind and loyal man but what she doesn't count on is their agreement meaning so much more to him. Can they overcome their past hurts and find their way to love? Of course! But I won't tell you how because that would spoil the book.

I read this book because it was free for a few days and I decided, why not? I do like the romance genre and can read clichés if well written, but this one was a disappointment. 0.5/5

The author kindly sent me an eArc so I could give an honest opinion. This was great! I knew this was Kate Von Liechstein's story, but Noah Sawyer was a surprise. Now I have to re-read the book where he appeared, to refresh my memory. After slighly hating her in Sebastian's and Daisy's book, in this book I felt sorry for her. She was a prisioner of her wealth and social standing, and had little hopes of ever being happy. Underneath that cold and prim exterior, was a sensitive woman who cared, but ...more

A lovely romp

I reserve 5 stars for books that have a lot of depth which this didn't, but otherwise this was a very enjoyable read. This was just a fun romantic comedy with enough character growth to keep it interesting. The main characters were likeable, the situation far-fetched but well drawn, with action and problems that were believable within the context of the far-fetched plot.

I like books that are set carefully in place. I saw the London written about here, although the North Carolina sc

3.5 stars

I'm a fan of Ms. Valentine's work, but this one isn't a favorite of mine. The pacing seemed off. Also, it's mentioned that the couple knew each other from three years before, but how was never clearly outlined as I recall. This felt very insta-love with no real basis for the connection beyond sex and a willingness to stick once married. They talk love, but I didn't feel the love.

I liked it enough to finish it, but it wasn't one of my favorites. I liked the premise, the setting, the story arc, but there were some places the editing could have used help, and the characters didn't always communicate in ways I appreciated. Also, it was shorter than I normally read, and I missed the richness afforded by a higher word count. I would be willing to try another of this author's books, but would look for a longer one, or one she wrote later.

Great premise but not a great book

I usually like Marquita Valentine, and maybe because this was a novella, but it just wasn’t great. The storyline of a billionaire woman marrying for convenience was great, but it was such a quick book. Everything happened too fast. They met, married, honeymooned all in the first few chapters. The writing was simple and a little to simple to feel invested.

Really good book!

I really enjoyed reading this book because I liked how you gave insight on both lives of Kate and Noah and also giving them prior history before the marriage proposal. My favorite part of the book was the plot twist at the end most definitely a little shocking! (Don’t want to spoil it!) I definitely recommend this book!

The duchess and the cowboy

Lively characters with depth. An easy read, page turner. The book has humour, strong emotion. At the heart of it all is that we are all worthy to be loved, be you rich or struggling.

The emphasis in this book is definitely on the sex and not the story line. Everything was well written and an easy read, however, I would have liked to read more details about the conflict and resolution, as well as the character's relationship outside of the bedroom.
