The Marriage Trap

The Marriage Trap - Jennifer Probst Enemies to lovers... one of the best romances I've read this year.

Michael is a rich billionaire who is not afraid of commitment but he is in no hurry to commit either. He hasn't yet met The One, and isn't looking for her either. His sole focus is expanding his family business in the States and all goes as planned until he receives a call from one of his sisters who is in hysterics because she wants to get married but she can't until he gets married.

He loves his family and goes through any lengths necessary to protect them and make them happy, even if that means he needs to strike a deal with the devil himself. Ha! The devil is none other than the woman who's been living in his dreams for the last year, and who takes every opportunity she gets to let him know exactly how she feels about him-- which is not pretty. Yeah, you just imagine that. The thing is, he's out of time, and out of options, and has no other choice than to proposition the last person on earth he'd ever want to make a deal with but admits she's the only one who can help him... The downside is she comes with a price because Maggie isn't one to do things just because she wants to be nice.

Maggie wants to love and be loved. She craves what she sees in Alexa and Nick, and one night she decides to write a list of the qualities she wants in a man and casts a love spell. What's the worst that can happen? An Italian Billionaire knocking at her door, that's what!

She refuses to call Michael by his first name, and instead she taunts him by calling him Count. Everything would be different had he not refused to go out on a second date with her a year ago, she can't get over that and makes him pay dearly for it. In accepting his proposal in exchange for her counter offer, she never imagines she'd be sucked right into his big loving family.

I can go on and on, but I'd be giving the book away. All I can say is that: it is full of laughs, Maggie is the kind of babysitter you want to stay away from, oh yes she is! And the way she teases Michael is hilarious. Michael is that patient kind of man, who can be ruthless whenever he wants, but he's got a heart bigger than his chest.

[Sigh] I loved this installment... and I'm sure other readers will love it just as much.

Jennifer Probst knows what her readers like... she's awesome like that.



Italian billionaire seeks faux fiancée. Willing to agree to anything in return...

In order for his sister to marry, Italian billionaire Michael Conte has to find himself a bride – and fast! When he learns that photographer Maggie Ryan is going to be in Milan, Michael hatches a plan to introduce her to his family as his “fiancée.” Never mind that Maggie is confident, independent, and a control freak. Never mind that she’s everything he doesn’t want in a wife… and everything he wants in his bed!

Convinced that Michael is in love with her married gal pal, Maggie agrees to keep up the ruse if he’ll keep away from her friend. Besides, she’s not attracted to charming, ridiculously hot billionaires who drive her nuts. Once they’re in Italy, however, everything changes – and the sexual tension between Maggie and Michael goes from simmer to naked nuclear meltdown!

But have they found the perfect arrangement… or are they trapped in a make-believe marriage?
