1.0 out of 5 stars Sadly lacking March 29, 2012
By M. Utt
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Marriage Bargain by Sandra Edwards just didn't deliver anything that a good book should. The storyline is rushed and the farther into the book, the more rushed the story becomes. It seems like the author became tired of the project early on and just wanted to finish it.

The characters are poorly developed and are not true to their description. For example, the author tells the reader that Camille is an honor student, yet the character's vocabulary and intellect don't mirror that promise. Things are thrown into the book for no apparent reason and are not believable. For example, about half way through the book, Ms. Edwards just throws out the statement that Camille is a virgin but she presents the character as anything but that in the book. When someone has never been with a man, they would not be comfortable walking around a near stranger and his employee, wearing nothing but a silk robe. She has supposedly gone through college and some time after that without being physically intimate and then she thinks nothing of a business arrangement "with benefits." Nothing in this book is believable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light fluffy read about a marriage of convience June 13, 2012
By tonileg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Julian de Laurent is a rich French dude. I'm not sure that Camille is the brightest bulb in the box because she just believes everything he says without doing her googling! Although in this case it ends up alright because he really is a rich dude.
Camille is an Stanford educated writer and she is sent out to get a gossip story on Julian but then refuses to complete it because it involves her getting married to Julian for six months.
For five million dollars, it is well worth six months posing as Julian's wife to his family and friends.
I did see the obvious romance for what it was and not some deep complicated commentary on modern society. This was a fun light read and totally leaves you with a good taste in your mouth.
But did Camille have to be a virgin?! It really didn't matter because Julian wasn't one and he didn't even notice the first time they made love or any other time in the story. That part could have been dropped and instead a scene where they are getting to know each other added, because it was a bit quick (less then a week before the marriage)!
- Note about marriage in France, you can not get married as easily as in the book. You must take blood tests, then fill out lots of paperwork, get foreign documents (birth certificates, etc) translated and then there is the minimum ten day Banns wait where the marriage is declared on the front entrance of the City Hall. If an foreigner wants to marry then they must reside legally in the city for a month before even trying to start the process. No easy elopement in France!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good, refund please. May 7, 2013
By cgirl25
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In reading Sandra Edwards' The Marriage Bargain I suspended my disbelief to the point of exhaustion. This story sadly could have been so much better. If you actually still want to read this, Spoilers -My question is if the main character is a Stanford University educated journalist why was she working at a gossip/tabloid magazine? Also a big factor here why was Camille's character written as so dimwitted that I was left shaking my head at this book more times than I wish to count? Nothing about Edwards' plot line in Marriage Bargain gelled. If Julian was French why didn't he speak any ? Much of the story takes place in France and I can't tell you anything about it except he called her cheri or darling in English. It seems the author has never been to any of the places she wrote about and even worse she didn't bother to do good enough research. Edwards' also left out a major component of the story the sex scene. It was like watching a Las Vegas magic trick because as soon as It appeared it was gone. How can you predicate the romance of the story on one sex scene that you didn't write. And to top of this literary achievement was surprise, Camille is a virgin. I am only saying this because she mentioned it in passing and her sexy and experienced French husband Julian never noticed when they had sex. Wow, I'm not sure how Sandra Edwards missed that part of being a woman. Totally unrealistic if Camille is in at least her mid twenties and still a virgin yet as the author you mention it once and offer no backstory or explanation. Yes, this genre is a bit senseless but it can actually be done right (Wife By Wednesday by Catherine Bybee). I'm not an author but this is just stupidity. How can this even be published? I seriously want a refund of $1.07 because The Marriage Bargain was a lemon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fairytale Romance March 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Marriage Bargain is for anyone who loves a good love story. A real fairytale romance with totally engaging and likeable characters. Camille has problems. Her honesty propels her to refuse a job she feels is dishonest. Her refusal gets her fired. Julian needs a wife for only six months to get his father off his back about marrying, something Julian doesn't want. What starts out as a business arrangement between Camille and Julian becomes something neither of them could imagine. As they get to know one another, they see the good in each other, not to mention the sparks that fly between them. I loved this story and loved how Ms. Edwards resolved all the conflicts to a very satisfying end.
