About the Author

USA Today Bestselling author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight when she read her first Trixie Belden mystery. Although she wanted to be a writer then and actually scrawled her first novel at age twelve, she didn’t think real people grew up to be writers, so she became a kindergarten teacher instead. Ten years ago, she traded her classroom storytelling and puppets for a computer and now writes so she doesn’t have to get a real job. Having sold over fifty books to date, she enjoys spinning spine-tingling romantic suspense tales filled with murder, mayhem, and spicy romance as well as sexy romantic comedies. Rita Herron currently writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue and she’s writing dark, gritty romantic suspense thrillers for Amazon Montlake. If you want to know more about Rita or have a question for her about her books, or writing in general, email Rita and she’ll be happy to answer your question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovable and laughable -- Highly recommended August 5, 2001
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When Maddie Summers challenges her boyfriend of four years to "Marry Me or Move On," on her best friend's talk show, plans backfire and she finds herself single once again. Maddie refuses to forego her own dreams to serve cocktails to any man's business partners in order to elevate him on the social pedestal. So now she plans to play the field, maybe date twenty or thirty men, and have fun. And when she marries, she wants someone who is hot, and someone who won't ask her to trade her independence for his goals.
Chase can't help appreciating the changes in Maddie, from her curvaceous figure to her newly single status. But Maddie is his best friends, heck, his blood brother's kid sister. Which means she's practically his own sister, and he has to keep his hands off. Worse, Chase considers himself a jailbird's son, and doesn't believe he should ever marry.
Chase had some pretty good pointers on boys when Maddie was twelve, and she tells herself that she's supposed to be forgetting men, not fantasizing about her brothers' best friend. Despite both of their best intentions, however, circumstances throw them together in business and in private. Include Maddie's interfering, yet well meaning, brothers and the result is humorously delightful!
Rita Herron's lovable, laughable style sparkles in MARRY ME, MADDIE. From talk shows to a nudist colony, this irrepressible heroine and her over-protective brothers will keep the reader in stitches. The multi-layered plot lends depth without becoming too serious, keeping the pace moving smartly along. The depth of characterization presents believable, imperfect people with big hearts and way of stepping into heated trouble. Without a doubt, Rita Herron's rising star boldly shines in MARRY ME, MADDIE. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars great read March 16, 2012
By j
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was a pretty great read. There was also some humor in the story too which made me laugh. Although the end seemed a bit rushed to me, in terms of how feelings got resolved and everyone reconciled.

I thought the relationship between the two main characters seemed pretty realistic, and there was good chemistry between them. I really liked Chase's character. You can really see some of his struggles with not wanting a relationship because of how his childhood had been. Maddie seemed like a modern woman that I could relate to and I could find respect for her.

Some things that I didn't like/thought could have been better about the story...

1) not knowing the age of Chase and the brothers. Maybe just me, but having ages helps me to put some interactions into perspective
2) the family secret that the siblings were trying to protect. That didn't really add to the story for me, besides explain why Lance would be wary of Sophie. But it still seemed like some random thing added in. Maybe the other books with the characters will add more to this.
3) the bachelor pact. I'm not too clear why the men decided on the bachelor pact. I can see how Chase might not have wanted a family because he believes people can't love him, but for Reid and Lance I didn't see a reason for it.

Anyways, overall a pretty good book. The plot wasn't that creative as I've read several other stories about the best friend's little sister, etc. But the writing was pretty good and I liked the characters. Even how the brother's were super protective was fine for me and that made sense as they raised Maddie so they want to keep seeing her as a child.

3.0 out of 5 stars Had It's Moments September 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marry Me, Maddie was a quick, fluffy romance that was good for passing a lazy Sunday. Maddie gives her boyfriend Jeff an ultimatum on live television which ends with them parting ways. For the best since Jeff is pretty unlikeable and there seemed to be zero chemistry between them! Newly single Maddie realizes she's attracted to her brothers' childhood best friend and business partner, Chase. What unfolds is pretty predictable (down to the villain who was sabotaging their development project). There were some confusing family secrets, behavior from all parties that was frustrating at times, and some downright ridiculous scenarios. Maddie's behavior was implausible for her character given her limited sexual experience. I enjoyed this book for what it was. I thought the chemistry between Maddie and Chase was great. It had a sweet, happy ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Herron never disappoints! March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read Rita Herron's romantic suspense, paranormal, and contemporary novels. She always creates a great plot and more importantly a hero and heroine that I can truly root for! Talk about a woman willing to take matters into her own hands to make sure she gets the HEA she deserves. With a brave heart, good friends, a great sense of humor and the right guy, Maddie totally deserved finding love in the end. Another wonderful story!

Really loved this book it had me in tears and it had me laughing out loud. REally enjoyed everything and the Chemistry of Chase and Maddie. Chase at times had me really upset, but I understood his reasons. Maddie felt bad for her because of her feelings for Chase and then her brothers in the middle. Wish to read more of Chase and Maddie.
