Book Description

Maddy Wainright has given up on marriage - and men. After dating way too many losers who aren't capable of appreciating her for who she is, she's about ready to resign herself to a life of spinsterhood. Until her insanely rich boss Daniel Thorne comes along with an offer she simply can't refuse.

He proposes a marriage of convenience - one that would allow Maddy to live in the lap of luxury for a year, and Mr. Thorne to stay in the country that has become his home. At the end of their arrangement, Maddy will walk away with a cool two million dollars. All she has to do is move into his mansion, put on a convincing show in public, and endure a few INS interviews, for which she will be thoroughly prepped. It's a big risk, but one Maddy might just be willing to take, considering the payoff.

At first, it's all business. But when the gentle touches, passionate kisses, and lingering looks they have to give each other in public start spilling over into their private life, Daniel and his devious mind take Maddy to heights of pleasure she's never experienced. And the more she gets to know him, the more she feels that wistful tug in her chest every time he puts his arm around her in public. Before long, she finds herself wishing it were real.

As time goes on, Maddy finds herself wondering if two million dollars will be enough to cover the cost of repairing a broken heart. But Mr. Thorne may have yet another secret in store...

- Excerpt -

Well, this was going fantastic. If this were a real first date, I would have blown it completely. I hunched over the table, staring down into the steaming cup of organic free trade gourmet roasted coffee that I hadn't touched. Daniel was waving the server down for the check.

Once he'd filled it out with his own elegant pen, produced from an inner jacket pocket, he leaned over the table again and spoke in soft murmur.

"I think it's best, for appearance's sake, if we leave in the same car. And I would appreciate it very much if you would come home with me and spend the night."

My throat tightened. "So soon?"

"Well, by this time, we've been having an affair for a few weeks now. It only makes sense you would come home with me after our 'first date,' if only because it's hardly our first date."

"Fine," I said.

He was almost whispering now. "You can stay in your own room." He smiled. "With a lock on the door. I have no plans to take advantage of you. Right now, everyone here thinks I'm telling you about all the naughty things I'm going to do to you, when we get back. Smile back. Smile back."

I did, even as goose bumps rose all over my skin. "It's a good thing the acoustics are so bad in here," I purred, slipping my foot out of my shoe and resting it lightly on top of his. It was dark, but the tablecloths were certainly short enough that someone might see, if they happened to look. His eyebrows went up a fraction of an inch. I wasn't sure if it was the situation, or the man, or the wine, or some combination of all three, but I felt bold.

"I hope their imaginations are sufficiently filthy to put the right words in my mouth," I said, slowly stroking the small part of his leg I could reach with my toe under the cuff of his pants. It was the first time we'd touched, other than shaking hands. I could feel his eyes on me - and the eyes of a few other patrons as well - but I refused to look up, instead pouring a little cream into my coffee, stirring it, and then raising the spoon to my mouth. I slid it into my mouth and licked it clean with an exaggerated gesture. It would be laughable under normal circumstances, but I hoped the alcohol and the atmosphere would work in my favor. If I could at least make Daniel half as uncomfortable as he was making me, then I would win.

Of course, it was backfiring horribly as well. I couldn't tell if the look on his face was entirely acting or not, but I was tingling all over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet and quirky! March 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Billionaire Daniel Thorne whose lawyer neglected to complete filing his paper works to become a natural US resident is now in danger of losing his visa. His only way of staying is if he marries a US citizen, so he set his eyes on one of his employees, the beautiful Maddy Wainwright and ask her to marry him. He bribed her to pay all her debts, move in with him, and enjoy all the perks of being his wife and at the end of their one year contract, he'll pay her a cool 2 million dollars and she walks away, no strings attached. The only condition, while they are living together she has to do everything to make it real and believable including sleeping together in the same room in the same bed. Maddy is in deep financial trouble and since the offer sounds so simple and enticing, she agreed...the trouble is, she fell in love ( and in lust! ) with the hot and sexy Daniel Thorne (who wouldn't be, whew! )
This is a sweet short fast read, quirky with a little twist and drama and a lot of sexual tension...and of course, a happy and sweet ending!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's good! March 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was wondering if I would like it but it turns out that it's a great read. Not that it's too short but when I finished I wished there was more! The way things built up was real satisfying and I found myself right there with the characters. Also goes great with red wine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring February 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
SPOILER......I really tried to like this book. But I felt like it was all over the place. First they are strangers, then she is the "timid" girlfriend, then she wants a physical relationship, then back to nothing. Throughout their relationship she spends all of her time in the house working one art. Not once do they need to go out in public together after they are married. Then one day they are under investigation from INS and then a short time later all is good. Then at the end the declare their love and live happy ever after????

I love the way jobs the storyline can make you relate to what is happening with characters. The storyline is written so well that the emotional turmoil that the characters were going felt real to me not from a book.
